Indisputable metal gods, ILL NIÑO with their infused bilingual lyrics, harsh and melodic vocals, flamenco guitars, tribal drums and salsa inspired bass lines will take to the stage for 2 monster Sidewaves with the undefinable and kick ass SKINDRED.
In an industry of big egos and even bigger drama, it is seldom a metal band manages to stick together for over a decade, but that is exactly what ILL NIÑO has done. Bone-crushing melodies, versatile vocals, and intelligently spaced riffs have won over hundreds of thousands of metal fans worldwide. For a little over 14 years, the men of ILL NIÑO have been creating unrivaled Latin-infused metal and they have only just begun. Both longtime and new fans agree that ILL NIÑO have cemented themselves as major players in the metal scene, as they continue to grow individually as musicians. You can check out the bands new single
Check out the bands brand new video, ‘Forgive Me Father’ HERE:
“ For a Nu Metal band, ILL NIÑO are one of the few still bearing the style to damn near its fullest and doing it with enough unique spin of Latin rhythms and quick switching English to Spanish lyrical content to still keep them a fascinating venture.” – Metal Observer
Joining them on the stage for 2 monster nights will be the quintessentially British band, SKINDRED! SKINDRED is one of the few bands to have combined elements of punk, rock, metal, reggae and electronic music with such success. The bands brand new and recently release album ‘Kill The Power’ again see’s the band create something completely unique – two pretty differing axes on the music spectrum – reggae and punk!
‘Kill The Power’ is an eccentric album that has influences from all over the musical spectrum mashed into one. The crazy sound is infectious and intriguing with all these influences working together for a greater purpose, creating an album that you most certainly won’t be able to stop playing once you start.” – Kill Your Stereo
