Ill Nino Unleash Video for ‘La Epidemia’
Their sixth studio album, 'Epidemia,' was released last week (Oct. 22), and now Ill Niño has unveiled the video for 'La Epidemia.' Both the song and clip feature Emmure vocalist Frankie Palmeri.
The video for 'La Epidemia' was filmed at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wis. It features performance footage of the band, along with some backstage shots. Palmeri and Ill Nino's Cristian Machado are shown doing vocals in an empty area of the venue. It wasn't difficult to line up their schedules, since Ill Nino and Emmure were on tour together at the time.
Machado spoke with SMNnews about their new album. The singer stated, "I truly feel it embodies who the band really is without compromising musical growth. To define our way of Latin Metal was the intention and, if we got 75 percent of the way there, we succeeded. The feeling, at the end of the day, should be had by the fans and not the band."
"The more we focus on our songs and just that, the better we are as band," Machado continues. "Too much outside influence can sometimes ruin creativity and focus. In our case, we’ve walked the fine line between being focused and having identity crisis for a long time. These personal creative differences are not audible on 'Epidemia,' making it one of our strongest and more focused efforts."
After wrapping up that tour with Emmure, Ill Nino only has one other show currently on their 2012 calendar. They will perform in Marietta, Ga. on Dec. 8.
