Christian Machado: Vocals Dave Chavarri: Drums Roger Vasquez: Percussion Lazaro Pina: Bass Jardel Paisante: Guitar Marc Rizzo: Acoustic and electric guitar Latin angst and supremely pissed-off soul collides head-on with driving guitars, unrelenting percussion and melodies that alternately soothe and draw blood. With a membership South American and Latin born, New Jersey's Ill Nino have rapidly emerged as one of the most dynamic and explosive bands to hit the heavy music realm today. Ill Nino's roots stretch back one year to ex-Pro-Pain/M.O.D. drummer Dave Chavarri's erstwhile mob, El Nino. In a short amount of time, the band garnered a significant fan base and local radio support performing with the likes of Fear Factory, Sick Of It All and Hatebreed. This set the blueprint for what was to come. The catalyst that led to the rebirth as Ill Nino came when Soulfly, while touring, tried out interim drummers and Dave Chavarri proved the man most capable for the job. Two months later, Dave returned home with a newfound fire. He and his peers, Cristian Machado and Marc Rizzo, now had a clear vision of what they wanted to accomplish musically. The band's newer material was taking a more melodic bend, requiring a new voice. After some serious soul-searching, they chose Brazilian-born Machado to fill the frontman's slot. With a newly revamped line-up filled out by acoustic/lead guitarist Marc Rizzo, rhythm guitarist Jardel Paisante, bassist Lazaro Pina and ex-Ricanstruction percussionist Roger Vasquez, the Latin mob was now complete. With strong support from the world's largest college radio station, WSOU, the recently rechristened Ill Nino hit both airwaves and stages alike with the force of their tropical namesake. From a handful of early 2000 gigs with the likes of Kittie, Soulfly, Snapcase and a co-headlining set at NJ's March's Metal Meltdown, Ill Nino's impact was immediate and fervent. With a steely combination of their raw energy, multilingual lyrical passion and brutal yet melodic songwriting, the message was clear: Ill Nino had arrived. Having inked a recording contract with Roadrunner Records, Ill Nino quickly found management with A.G.M. (Andy Gould Management). Recently completing their debut for Roadrunner entitled Revolution*Revolucion with producer Ron St. Germaine (Tool, 311, Creed, Soundgarden, Bad Brains), Ill Nino is about to stir up a proverbial storm. Let the Revolution begin!

    When your whole world seems to fall apart all around you and the people you thought you could count on turn against you. Only Ill Nino knows exactly what to say to bring you back up to your feet "never give up" and "you get the fuck up"! This is something far beyond music its something spiritual. To Ill Nino thank you.
