“New” is the word of the day for nu-metal band Ill Nino.
The video for ‘Mascara’, directed by Hunter Chapman, tells a story that is comparable to something right out of a gangster flick. A man is being interrogated by a really big, scary looking guy who is accusing him of doing something he didn’t do. The interrogation involves a certain amount of torture, so viewer discretion is advised.
The musical arrangement featured in the song presents a sound and stylistic approach that will appeal to fans of Slipknot and Chimera. Its lyrical content, which is featured in Loudwire‘s article, hints that the song centers on the familiar message of someone dealing with people who are not all that they appear.
Front man Marcos Leal discussed the song — which features a guest appearance from Fire From The Gods member AJ Channer — in a prepared statement.
“I’m very stoked to introduce ‘Máscara’ as a great addition to the Ill Nino legacy, and a highlight of my vocal career,” said Leal. “I’m honored to have collaborated with our very good friend and one of my favorite vocalists in the game, AJ Channer, of Fire From The Gods. As someone who’s grown up as a fan of Ill Nino, and as a musician inspired by the band, I take pride and honor in crafting the vocals for the next generation. It’s something fans new and old will appreciate, and I look forward to throwing some chingasos in the pit with our Niño Familia in 2021!”
Ill Nino’s current lineup consists of Leal (vocals), original members Laz Pina (bass) and Dave Chavarri (drums), returning percussionist Daniel Couto, and guitarists Jes DeHoyos (Sons of Texas) and Sal Dominguez (ex-Upon A Burning Body).
