Ill Nino's upcoming release, "One Nation Underground...", is currently being mixed in the great state of New Jersey. For more detail, frontman Cristain Machado checks in with the following:

WOW. What a week of chaos (mixing, mastering, last minute touch ups, 420). The good news is that the new ILL NINO record is almost complete. As I type, Dan Korneff is giving his final yet magical touches to the last two songs remaining. Dave (Chavarri), Eddie (Wohl), Dan (Korneff), and I have literally been working 15 hour days to make sure this record is the most intense and conceptual NINO release to date. Overall, we have been having a great time. Making a record is still a lot of hard work but nevertheless, we all find the time to throw a good mother joke here and there. Humiliating each other to pass the time seems to be the popular thing to do nowadays. Your mother's so fat...she...

There is no doubt in my mind that all of the ILL fans out there are going to be very proud of this record. The entire band is very psyched about how fucking killer the music and lyrics are turning out. All of the Roadrunner Records staff has been giving us nothin' but love and are doing an amazing job. Not only have they encouraged complete creative expansion, but they also agreed on having Scrap 60 (Anthrax, Ill Nino, Cradle of Filth, Bleeding Through) produce the band. They were involved in the making of our first release, Revolution.Revolucion. and understood the band like no one else ever has. Bottom line, on this record we fucking exploded. We didn't give a fuck about anything other than being what ILL NINO should be: Brutal, intense, cultured, obscure, and slightly demented. I won't waste your time trying to explain the overall concept of the record. The music will speak for itself. After all, that's all that really matters.

In other news, drummer Dave Chavarri joins guitarist Ahrue in the band as being the only two members without dreds. "Yes, I've cut my dreds," tells Chavarri. "Everyone's been sending me e-mails, asking if I've cut my dreds. Well after almost 7 years of dreds, I felt I needed a change, and it was time to cut them off."

The new ill nino will come out late september. 2 MP3s are going to be released on Roadrunner Records web site in about 1 week or so. The record is the best ILL NINO record to date. This band has brought the balls + creativity into metal. I got a 5 song sneak peak. f***ing smashing. That's all I'll say.
Wait 'till you hear.
