"Cell" - Voodoo Terror Tribe feat. Cristian Machado

It’s time to speed up that heart rate a bit, and Voodoo Terror Tribe will help you do just that. Here's the lyric video for “Cell,” a track that features a guest appearance by Ill Niño‘s Cristian Machado.

Not only does Machado guest on the track, but he also serves as a producer on their album. The vocalist co-produced The Sun Shining Cold with the band, and also recorded and mixed the disc at Sound War Studios in New Jersey, with some additional recording and mixing at Fuel Music Studios in California.

The song has a driving drum beat, aggressive guitar work and prominent bass and when it kicks in, “Cell” is a definite moshpit starter. So crank it up and get ready for contact.

Voodoo Terror Tribe’s The Sun Shining Cold album is due Nov. 11.

Ill Nino has released the video for "Forgive Me Father":

As you can see, Daniel is not in the video. Unfortunately he has quit Ill Niño to be able spend more time on his family. Oscar Santiago from Ankla has now joined the band.

As stated on Facebook:

to all my Ill Nino fans across the world, the reason you dont see me in the video( forgive me father) is because i have left the band for the reason of being next to my son,parents and my brothers and sister,this was a really hard decision to make its been 10 years sharing my live with all members and it was hard to leave ,everything that is great must come to a end ,at least for me and for now,its been a journey going around the world doing what we love the best and getting pay for it but its all good they must continue with or without me, a really good friend of my Oscar Santiago is now the percussionist and hes amazing not only as a player but also as a person ,i wish him the best ,thank you to all the fans i will always love you ,Daniel Couto

We wish Danny all the best.

ILL NIÑO Preparing To Enter Studio

New Jersey/New York's ILL NIÑO is prearing to enter the studio to begin laying down its sixth full-length album for a summer release via Victory Records. The recording sessions will begin next month in Hoboken, New Jersey; Austin, Texas; and Denver, Colorado.

Commented ILL NIÑO frontman Cristian Machado: "It's 2012 and we're all still alive. It’s time to redefine Latin metal."

Added ILL NIÑO drummer/founder Dave Chavarri: "This time around, we want to explore Latin and tribal rhythms we have never explored in the past five releases, giving us no musical boundaries at all."

ILL NIÑO's fifth album, "Dead New World", sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 164 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous effort, "Enigma", opened with 5,000 units to land at No. 145 back in March 2008.

"Dead New World" was released on October 26, 2010 via Victory Records. The follow-up to 2008's "Enigma" was self-produced, with co-production coming from Clint Lowery (SEVENDUST) and Sahaj Ticotin (RA), and mixed by Eddie Wohl (36 CRAZYFISTS, ANTHRAX, SMILE EMPTY SOUL). The album artwork was created by Tim Butler of XIII Designs (DISTURBED, SLIPKNOT, METALLICA, SLAYER, MICHAEL JACKSON).
