Cristian Machado (born in Rio De Janeiromarker, Brazilmarker in 1974) is the vocalist for the band Ill Niño. He has also played in Headclamp and La Familia, in addition to making numerous guest appearances on albums such as Soulfly's 3 and 40 Below Summer's The Mourning After.


Cristian was born as the son of a Brazilian musician, but soon moved to Venezuelamarker with his mother. In 1986 they moved to New Jerseymarker where he spent the rest of his teens. He only knew his father halfway through his teenage years. His mother told him his stepfather was his father, and he found out only when his father called him, and told him he was his real father. Cristian told his father he did not want to see him. Today, however, he communicates with his father through e-mail and phone. The Ill Niño song "Unframed" is about Cristian's relationship with his father, Marcello Machado, who later on moved to Orlando-FL to start a transportation firm. [127056]


Most of Cristian's music influence is from his childhood without a father and growing up realizing that. Even when touring he would meet people that he felt left an impact on his life and he would show in his music how that person helped or ruined his life."How can I live" is about his father, Marcello Machado, who later on moved to Orlando-FL and started a transportation firm.


Machado uses Dave Williams of Drowning Pool's microphone. They were good friends and both bands created a bond and friendship while doing the Jägermeister tour. After Williams died, Drowning Pool and Dave's family gave him the mic in respect.
