WATERLOO — Ill Nino will bring a storm of Latin metal to Spicolis at 7 p.m. June 8.
Also performing will be Shattered Sun, Voodoo Terror Tribe and Bobaflex.
Ill Nino will perform its classic debut album, “RevolutionRevolución,” in its entirety plus several fan favorites.
Ill Nino’s Latin roots run deep. Melodic vocals, bilingual lyrics, flamenco guitars, tribal drums and Latin percussion, and salsa-infused bass lines make up the groundbreaking sound that defines the band.
New Jersey/New York born Ill Nino formed in late 1999 and became the epitome of Latin metal in 2001 with a monster debut album. Strong airplay for their first single, “What Comes Around,” and slots on both Ozzfest and Jagermeister tours in 2002, helped the album sell nearly 430,000 units worldwide.
Ill Nino returned with their sophomore release, “Confession,” which sold over 500,000 copies worldwide. The success of that album also spawned the top 10 single “How Can I Live,” which became the featured single on the “Freddy vs. Jason” soundtrack and film.
In 2014, Ill Nino landed a spot at the prestigious Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, playing to thousands of metal fans across the U.S. The sextet’s relentless international touring in Europe, Australia, South America, Mexico, Russia, Philippines, China and Japan, plus sharing stages around the globe with the likes of Linkin Park, Disturbed, Guns & Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Korn and Sevendust, has established Ill Nino as one of the most lethal live bands of the decade.
Admission to the concert is $15.
