New Jersey, United States (1998 – present)

The band’s style can go under , , and . Although, their 2012 album titled Epidemia was mostly more .

Ill Niño was founded in 1998 by drummer Dave Chavarri and released a 4 song demo that year with Jorge Rosado (formerly of Merauder) on vocals and Cristian Machado playing bass. The next year, they parted ways with Rosado, and started looking for a new vocalist, but ultimately decided that the best decision was for Machado to step up to vocals. El Niño then changed their name to Ill Niño, released an EP in 2000, and signed with Roadrunner Records shortly thereafter.

Ill Niño released their debut album, Revolution Revolución, on September 18, 2001. In support of the album’s release, the band was part of the Ozzfest and Jägermeister tours in 2002. The album’s single, “What Comes Around,” received significant airplay on MTV2 and on the Active Rock charts. In early 2003, right before Ill Niño was set to record the follow-up to Revolution Revolución, Ill Niño parted ways with guitarist Marc Rizzo and percussionist Roger Vasquez. Rizzo stayed aboard long enough to record some of the guitars for the new album, and then the band hired percussionist Danny Couto to replace Roger Vasquez. Shortly before the release of Confession, the band also hired Ahrue Luster, formerly of Machine Head, to fill the vacant guitar spot.

In 2002, the band’s vocalist Cristian Machado performed on Soulfly’s song ‘One’, off the band’s third album 3, sharing lead vocal duties with Max Cavalera.

    Enigma was a beautiful album. The others aren't really memorable, even though listening to the older ones gives me one hell of a memory ride. The newer ones are completely forgetable.

    Dead New World is far from being their best album though. Their 3 first ones are their top ones. Till Death, La Familia tends to get closer to those ones after 3 average albums. (My opinion)

    THis is a rather depressing band. Their covers are great, they have awesome Latin chops and they have definite talent (and even had Marc Rizzo at one point.) They just can't seem to write very good/memorable tracks outside of Dead New World, at least I'll always have fond memories of that album.

    Till Death, La Familia is a strong release. After 3 fucking great albums, they did 3 just acceptable ones.. Let's hope this one starts a new wave of 3 great ones ! [2]
