Lead vocalist Cris Machado states, “Nearly two decades later, onward we march to the sound of the war drums. It’s safe to say we owe it all to our fans. For our first 10 tours, Revolution, Revolución songs were all we played. Sadly a lot of our debut album went unperformed for many years thereafter, so now’s your chance to hear it again! Some may think it’s cliché, but the fact is 15 years later here we are and damn fucking right, we’re gonna celebrate! We live and die ILL NIÑO army, ILL NIÑO familia. Come celebrate 15 Years of Revolution and Latin Metal insanity with us!”

ILL NIÑO’s Latin roots run bloody and deep.  Melodic vocals, bilingual lyrics, flamenco guitars, tribal drums and Latin percussion, and Salsa-infused bass lines make up the groundbreaking sound that defines ILL NIÑO.


New Jersey/New York born ILL NIÑO formed in late 1999 and became the epitome of Latin Metal in 2001 with their monster debut album, Revolution, Revolución.  Strong airplay for their first single “What Comes Around” and slots on both Ozzfest and Jagermeister tours in 2002 helped the album sell nearly 430,000 units worldwide. ILL NIÑO returned with their sophomore release Confession and managed to surpass their debut sales, selling over 500,000 copies worldwide.  The success of Confession also spawned the top 10 single “How Can I Live” which became the featured single on the Freddy vs. Jason soundtrack and film.


In 2014, ILL NIÑO landed a spot on the prestigious Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, playing to thousands of metal fans across the U.S.  The sextet’s relentless international touring in Europe, Australia, South America, Mexico, Russia, Philippines, China and Japan, plus sharing stages around the globe with the likes of Linkin Park, Disturbed, Guns & Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Korn, and Sevendust, has established ILL NIÑO as one of the most lethal live bands of the decade.


Now, 15 years after the release of their debut album, ILL NIÑO continues to show their roots and pave the way for Latin metal.
