Techdeathmetalband Nile en Dallas Toler-Wade gaan uiteen, een vervanger werd per direct aangesteld.
Toler-Wade speelde sinds 1997 gitaar, bas en als zanger bij de band rond Karl Sanders en was op alle acht studioplaten, maar daar komt nu een einde aan. Een vervanger vond de band in Brian Kingsland van Enthean. De mededelingen van bandleider Sanders, drummer George Kolias en Toler-Wade zelf lees je hieronder.
Sanders: I would like to personally thank Dallas Toler-Wade for his many years with the band, and sincerely wish him well with his music.
All of us in Nile are truly happy and thankful to be working with Brian. Not only is he a seriously talented extreme metal guitar shredder, but he has a great brutal metal voice, with a very versatile range. Brian is also a genuine, down-to-earth hard-working and motivated guy who has helped reignite and re-establish a sense of team work back into Nile. With the addition of Brian on guitar and vocals, The band right now seems to me a lot more like the early years of Nile- the Classic Nile era when we were all functioning as a cohesive unit, in viciously brutal triple vocal attack mode. The mood in the Nile rehearsal room for the last 3 months has been focused and relaxed; with 4 positive, energized, hard working people all on the same metal page. We simply can’t wait to share what we have been working on with metal fans on the upcoming Overkill Tour. Between the addition of Brian, and bassist/vocalist Brad Parris now in his 2nd year in the band, this line-up is going to crush skulls. Seriously, the last time I felt this strongly about a Nile line-up – was when George Kollias joined the band.
Kolias: I want to thank Dallas for everything he did for Nile all these years, its been some amazing years and I wish him the best with his new project!
Also, I want to say a big “welcome to Nile” to Brian Kingsland! Brian is an amazing guitar player/vocalist and he has brought a very fresh vibe to the band, we are so looking forward to get out there and deliver the best metal you ever heard from us! See you all on the road!
Toler-Wade: Just in case anyone has not heard the news I have departed from Nile. I would like to thank the fans of the band, all the friends and bands I met over the years.
You are truly great people.
This is the end of the road for me and Nile, but not the end for me and music. My band Narcotic Wasteland is going strong as we are nearing completion of our second album. We plan to release it this year and hit the road at some point. Also I did solo guitar work on Jon Vesano’s new In-Defilade album slated to come out soon. I plan to stay as busy as I can with music on whatever level possible.
Also thanks everyone who is messaging me. I will reply as soon as I can. I wish Nile the best.
Niles laatste album, What Should Not Be Unearthed, verscheen in 2015.
