The year 2000 the small city of Omaha, NE would give birth to a metal band soon to change ALL
stereotypes of metal that the world has yet to see. Beginning as only a three piece, NARCOTIC SELF
came onto a scene saturated with indie rock, and at the time, what the rock media refers to as
ârap-metalâ. With a huge buzz created from the band only by performing in front of gathering crowds at
weekly practices, NARCOTIC SELFâs first live performance at the legendary Ranch Bowl Entertainment
Center awoke an electricity in the Omaha music scene that was starving for something new. The band
performed for a packed house with an addictive energy that fueled the whole crowd into the pits. A new
sound of melodic, thrash metal, with strangely organized song structures, illustrative lyrics, and off beat
time signatures immediately caught the attention of larger and larger crowds.
After the bands debut album âThe Anti-Narcotics Movementâ was released in early 2002, already the
word had began to spread to neighboring towns and cities about the band. âThe Anti-Narcotics Movementâ
was assault upon all senses. Taking listeners on a journey yet been traveled in metal music. The bands
shows became more and more talked about, advertised, and reviewed by local and regional newspapers,
and online forums and magazines. 2004 marked the year of the band second independent release
âFalling Distanceâ. A full length statement that the band was here to push the envelope at any and all costs,
with no signs of slowing down or compromise.
Soon the band began to grow within itself. Adding a second guitar player, developing new songs, and
refining all itâs original styles and sounds, the band would continue to gain recognition extremely fast.
Along with growing musically, the band would next go thru a lineup change. A new rhythm section (bass,
and drummer) would begin to turn heads on an even larger scale. Within this time the band had created
a reputation for one of the most intense and best live performances in the region. Gaining performance
slots with many well recognized national acts, to date, the band has shared the stage with such bands as
SLAYER, HATEBREED, SOULFLY, DEICIDE, GOD FORBID, THE MISFITS, STAIND, GENITORTURES,
POISON THE WELL, DOPE, EXODUS, SUFFOCATION, FULL BLOWN CHAOS, DIECAST,
BYZANTINE, HALO OF LOCUSTS and others. NARCOTIC SELF also began to touring the Midwest
coming to find fans waiting by the hundreds miles away from where the band had been playing originally,
and to also create many new fans with every show.
NARCOTIC SELF next became one of the first and only original metal acts in the Midwest to get sponsored by liquor
giants JAGERMEISTER. Soon the band would go onto do shows exceeding numbers of 3000 people still
without any help or backing from booking agencies, or recording contracts. Today you may come across
NARCOTIC SELFâs distinct âcircular NS bone logoâ on the back of a T-shirt anywhere from Denver,
Des Moines, KC, Dallas, to northern states of Michigan, and South Dakota or states like Montana, and/or
Idaho. Also panning partially to the coast, NARCOTIC SELF was picked to be in the runnings for MTVâs
reality series âBattle for Ozzfestâ and making it to the finals to be apart of only 12 bands out of thousands
to yet only be cut before the show would air on MTV for the television series.
Now armed with a new rhythm section, the band had a lineup of not only a good match of band members,
but some of the best musicians in the city of Omaha. With the city exploding musically with national and
international recognition due to artists and labels popping up like Sattle Creek Records, the band was
caught against the grain within it own music scene.
In 2006 NARCOTIC SELF would release their best, and heaviest record to date! âBlood and Poisonâ is a
redefinition of the bands earlier attempts create heavy metal with old school roots, good musician ship,
and catchy songs that long stick with you after hearing them. While retaining an original sound, the band
came together and independently created âBlood and Poisonâ without high dollar recording studios,
producers, or recording tricks. Tracks like âKilling Youâ and âWho Will Save U Nowâ deliver a brutal
heaviness with choruses that question ones own well being. The record progresses into songs like âTell
No Oneâ and âIllusionâ that solidify and retain an experimental element of the band.
With the âBlood and Poisonâ release still on the rise, NARCOTIC SELF is still driving forward at full
steam. The band has continued to sell out shows in Omaha and gain regular rotation on many internet
radio stations, along with the Midwest's most powerful 100 thousand watt independent radio station
KIWR 89.7 The River with a huge response from listeners. Yet to hit the road heavily in support of âBlood
and Poisonâ, the band was nominated by The Omaha Entertainment Awards for bast metal act. Despite
many great accomplishments, this young band has yet to show it full potential, and has only begun to
scratch the surface of its own capabilities.
