Ahrue Luster, lead guitarist with Ill Niño took some time out of his busy schedule to speak with me about the band’s newest disc, Dead New World. This is their 5th full length disc and it showcases the band at the top of their game. While the signature Ill Niño sound is present and accounted for, Dead New World seems much tighter and beefier than their previous releases. This is a solid metal album that is sure to satisfy metal heads across the board.

Formed by guitarist Tim Tournier and Vocalist Derek Smith, Man The Mighty have been pushing the musical envelope with insightful lyrics, heavily melodic guitar riffs and powerfully driven backbeats produced by drum and bass since 1999.
