ILL NIÑO's CRISTIAN MACHADO Speaks To RESIDENT ROCK STAR (Video)
Resident Rock Star conducted an interview with ILL NIÑO vocalist Cristian Machado at the July 13 stop of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in Denver, Colorado. You can now watch the chat below. ILL NIÑO's new album, "Till Death, La Familia", was released on July 22 via Victory Records. The band's lead singer, Cristian Machado, told Arena.com that "Till Death, La Familia" "will absolutely surprise a lot of people." He continued: "I don't think we're the kind of band that releases the same album over and over. We always attempt to challenge ourselves musically in order to grow as artists and friends. "The new album will have its surprises and all I will say is that it is very catchy and very groove-oriented. The lyrics, I feel, are by far the best lyrics I've ever written, and I really do give the guys in the band so much credit for writing such amazing songs for this new album." Speaking to 100% Rock Magazine, ILL NIÑO bassist Lazaro Pina stated about "Till Death, La Familia": "We try to do something different every record. I can tell you for sure that this one is going to demonstrate a whole new ILL NIÑO style. At first, it took a lot of courage, but I'm feeling so much better about it now that the vocal tracks are beginning to come in. It's turning out to be everything I think most of us envisioned it and kind of wanted in a new record. We're definitely taking ILL NIÑO to a new… an additional style. We're definitely bringing it up to 2014 and kind of creating our own thing. Hearing Cristian singing like he's never sung before and even innovating a new heavy style of singing and a new melodic style of singing. It's going to be interesting. I think that the fans'll appreciate it and hopefully some new ones will come on board and say, 'Hey. I really dig this band; I like what they've been doing throughout the years.' It is… I think it's a courageous record. It definitely does not sound like any other previous record. It's definitely ILL NIÑO demonstrating an additional style. "You've got to keep innovating yourself, and if you don't innovate yourself, you're playing the same thing. We've been doing this for a long time, we're entitled to get a little crazy and experiment with different ideas."

'The Big Book Of Hair Metal' Due In August
Voyageur Press has set an August 15 release date for "The Big Book Of Hair Metal: The Illustrated Oral History Of Heavy Metal's Debauched Decade". In this ultimate guide to the subgenre, acclaimed heavy-metal journalist Martin Popoff examines hair metal in an all-encompassing oral history jacked up by a kaleidoscope of outrageous and previously unpublished quotes, anecdotes, photos, and memorabilia. "The Big Book Of Hair Metal" features the observations of dozens of musicians, producers, promoters, label execs, and hanger-ons in examining hair metal's rise and fall as well as all the bands that kept Aqua Net in business through the Reagan recession: TWISTED SISTER, BON JOVI, POISON, MÖTLEY CRÜE, RATT, WARRANT, GREAT WHITE, WHITESNAKE, CINDERELLA, VIXEN, SKID ROW, L.A. GUNS, GUNS N' ROSES, and dozens more. In crafting a narrative of hair metal, Popoff also examines the factors that contributed to the movement's rise (including MTV, Reagan's "morning in America," and a general move toward prudish morals); the bands that inspired it (THE SWEET, NEW YORK DOLLS, ALICE COOPER, and KISS, for a start); and the scenes that nurtured it (the Sunset Strip, anyone?). The ride finally ended circa 1991, when hair metal was replaced by grunge, but what a ride it was. Here it is in all of its primped-up glory. "The Big Book Of Hair Metal" features more than the obvious and usual suspects.. The superstars and also-rans are included, and with 580 (!) photos, the depth and the number of bands and musicians featured is staggering. Nothing is left out — it's big, bold and loud like the music, telling the complete history of the music you know you STILL love. About the author: Martin Popoff has been described as the world's most famous heavy-metal journalist. He has penned more than 40 books on hard rock, heavy metal, and record collecting, including Voyageur Press' "Rush: The Illustrated History". He has also worked in film and television, his most recent projects being "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" and VH1's "Metal Evolution". He lives in Toronto with his wife and son. hairmetalbookcover
