Cristian Machado, the godfather of Latin metal, best known for his tenure as lead vocalist for ill niņo, 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 niņo 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.
