Ill Niño has entered the studio to begin work on their sixth full-length release and follow-up to their Victory debut, Dead New World. The effort is slated for a summer 2012 release. Frontman Cristian Machado commented, “It’s 2012 & we’re all still alive. It’s time to redefine Latin metal.” “This time around, we want to explore Latin and Tribal rhythms we have never explored in the past 5 releases, giving us no musical boundaries at all.” said drummer/founder Dave Chavarri on the band’s creative process for this album. Ill Niño is currently scheduled to begin recording sessions next month in Hoboken NJ, Austin TX, and Denver CO.
