Ill Niño Premiere Video For New Song “All Or Nothing” Featuring P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval

Ill Niño have premiered a new video for their new song “All Or Nothing.“ This track features P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval and it will appear on the band’s upcoming album “IllMortals.“

Sanodval said the following:

“Like P.O.D., Ill Niño have always incorporated their culture, roots and heritage into their music and sound, which have set them apart in this metal scene for over two decades. It was my honor and privilege to have contributed to this record. After knowing them for 20 years now, I don’t know why we didn’t do this sooner.”

Ill Niño frontman Marcos Leal added:

“‘All Or Nothing‘ was written as a challenge to myself. I knew the moment I joined Ill Niño I would face negativity, scrutiny and possibly ridicule. It caused me to question myself, and even question if I was good enough to embrace this opportunity. I challenged myself as I’m challenging all of you, what would you do if the opportunity of a lifetime was within your grasp? I chose to go ‘All Or Nothing.’ I wanna thank one of my heroes, Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. for lending his freshness to this track and being a constant inspiration.”

“I am fortunate to come from a place where I’m so close to the border in South Texas, that I get to witness all the good and the bad that comes from the immigration issues. My father and my father-in-law both own companies that give immigrants coming into our country an opportunity to make an honest living, and provide for their families. Working with these families, I have seen first hand some of the things that have held them back such as the language barrier, the frail state of politics in our country at the moment and the negativity that comes with it all.

Thankfully I’ve also seen people come to the U.S. and conquer all of these obstacles, with many success stories, and experiences, which I’ve definitely learned from. I can assure you that there are many things we can learn from each other, if we could just all put our differences aside.”

Bassist Laz Pina also commented:

“I grew up in mixed neighborhoods predominantly blue collar minorities but nonetheless mixed. My childhood friends and school mates collectively were of different backgrounds and cultures. Aside of race we ultimately had too many other things in common. It wasn’t till I was much older that I began to realize certain things. Thankfully I am grateful how my country responded with our new administration and I believe we are now back to collectively moving forward again. I am hopeful of a global society living in peace, love and respect.”

“I’m very stoked to introduce ‘Máscara’ as a great addition to the Ill Niño legacy, and a highlight of my vocal career. I’m honored to have collaborated with our very good friend and one of my favorite vocalists in the game, AJ Channer, of Fire From The Gods. As someone who’s grown up as a fan of Ill Niño, and as a musician inspired by the band, I take pride and honor in crafting the vocals for the next generation. It’s something fans new and old will appreciate, and I look forward to throwing some chingasos in the pit with our Niño Familia in 2021!”

Channer added:

“Ill Niño is a band that will leave a strong lasting legacy on heavy music. Some of my earliest show experiences were Ill Niño shows. To be able to lend my voice to one of their songs includes me in that legacy. I was more than honored to sing on ‘Máscara.’”

Former Ill Niño Finish Recording Debut Album For Their New Project

As previously reported, former Ill Niño members Cristian Machado, Ahrue “Luster” Ilustre, and Diego Verduzco have reunited in a new project. Now, Machado has confirmed that they have finished recording their debut album.

Machado told Hablas Rockas the following:

“There’s an entire album done. The album is completely done — 100 percent done. 12 songs finished. They’re not mixed or mastered. We have rough mixes.

We’re all trying not to talk too much about it, just because until we can put out the album, should we really talk too much about it? I don’t know. I will say this… The things that are reasonable to say is the songs are fucking awesome.

As far as me focusing as just a vocalist and not having to be involved mentally in some kind of other way with the instrumentation, as far as me thinking as a vocalist, it’s definitely the best work I’ve ever done. And I have to thank Ahrue and Diego — Diego, who really began this whole thing by writing some songs, putting them together, getting a producer, starting to move the ball. He was, basically, like, ‘I’m gonna start working. I’m gonna start writing songs. I’m gonna start doing this and see where it goes. No pressure. Let’s just make sure we’re all having fun.'”

He continued when asked if the material has a “Latin metal” sound like Ill Niño:

“No, because we’re not tied to that. We wouldn’t wanna do that. It would be dumb to do that, I think. Now, will there be other things that I do that are more like Latin metal? Yeah, there are things, but not with this other thing we’re doing, which is really focused on writing an album where every single song could sound like it was a hit or a single — in a metallic way, obviously.”

He also added the following when asked about release plans:

“We’re probably gonna try to seek some label interest. And, like I said, the songs are really phenomenal, so I think it’s not gonna be hard to do that. But we would like to seek somebody that gets it and that knows how to grow it, how to bring it to the next level. We don’t wanna do things on the level we were at, which, for many years, was a level of struggle, to be honest with the whole world. There was no grace and glamor at the level we were at. The thing that really was the rewarding thing was the fans, the shows. That’s what was the most rewarding.”

Former Ill Niño Members Working On New Project

It looks like former Ill Niño members Cristian Machado, Ahrue “Luster” Ilustre, and Diego Verduzco are working on a new project together. Machado confirmed the news during a recent appearance on the “Aftershocks” podcast.

Machado said the following:

“We absolutely are [working on new music]. I haven’t talked about it at all [publicly], and it’s something that we’re not really in a rush to prove anything to anybody, but we do have almost a half an album finished. It is phenomenal. The songs are phenomenal.”

“We are trying to write a metal album, clearly, but that is full of hit singles. It’s a challenging thing to do, but we’ll take our time, if that’s what it takes. But we’re working on things. And Ahrue and Diego, the material they presented me is fucking next level. It’s not this extreme metal thing, but the songs are phenomenal — really, really catchy. Really strong material. Some of the best music that I’ve been thrown at to sing on in… I can’t remember since when. And we’re working with a fucking amazing producer.”

He also added:

“[We don’t have] a record company [in place yet], but there are music industry friends who are interested in growing this with us. We don’t have a contract with anyone yet or anything like that. We’re not in a rush. We definitely wanna be able to come out with guns blazing. If we’re gonna do the metal thing, we want the songs to be right.”
