Former Ill Niño front man Cristian Machado spreads his wings on his debut solo disc “Hollywood y Sycamore”. Listen in as he talks with Ozz about his sometimes turbulant past & his bright future. Click that tiny little play button now!
Cristian Machado, the godfather of Latin metal, best known for his tenure as lead vocalist for ill
niño, will be releasing his debut solo album, Hollywood y Sycamore this fall on Chesky Records.
The album sees Machado abandon the screams and screeching guitars in favor of his eclectic
Latin influences and transcendent bilingual songwriting.
Hollywood y Sycamore includes completely new original songs (led by ethereal single “Die
Alone”), new arrangements of some previous ill niño songs (“How Can I Live” “Numb”), and covers from Pink Floyd (“Welcome to the Machine”), Life of Agony (“Weeds”), and a spell-
binding take on Post Malone's "Blame It On Me".
Hollywood y Sycamore serves as the newest release for Chesky sub-label, Coconut Bay, which
sees a departure from the single mic style live recording Chesky Records is known for and
combines elements of live recording with the added impact layering provides, all captured in
digital high resolution.
