Doc welcomes ex-Ill Niño vocalist, Cristian Machado, to the show to talk about his difficulty leaving the band, how tough it is to replace lead singers in bands, what it was like coming up in the local New Jersey metal/hardcore scene, evolving from El Niño to Ill Niño, how early success affected him, dealing with commercial pressure and trying to avoid the sophomore slump, persevering through member changes, becoming disillusioned with the band in later years, and how his solo album came together.
This episode features the songs “American Nightmare” by Sangre and “Better You Know” by Cristian Machado.
