BIOHAZARD


"A Means to an End" (SPV / Steamhammer; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

 

Back in 2001, I reviewed Biohazard's "Uncivilization" and I thought it really rocked hard and with a lot of passion. However, I kind of lost track with the band, until now. 

Biohazard is back and they are loaded for bear with their new release, "A Means To An End." The aggression literally explodes from the CD player and the power of the band rips right from the first cut. 

When you listen to this recording, there are no hidden meanings; the messages they preach are right there in front of your speaker grill. Good, bad or indifferent, Biohazard tells their story without any regret. 

Biohazard is like the Bill O'Reilly of the metal world -- you may not like what they say, but you have to respect their right to say it. 

Man, if you want extreme music, Biohazard is right up your alley with ripping vocals and fiery, rumbling music. "A Means to an End" is an excellent, high-powered musical experience that is unmatched in today's musical scene, most notably in the band's unrelenting anger.

"Uncivilization" (Sanctuary; 2001)

Reviewed by Snidermann

 

For some reason I never really connected with Biohazard. I always thought of them as just another rap/metal band, albeit an intense one. However, with their new release, "Uncivilization," all that shit has definitely changed. 

"Uncivilization" is as powerful and thought-provoking as anything I've listened to lately. Strong, personal issues are thoroughly expressed on this CD in a way that is very clear and very gratifying to a metal listener such as myself. Sometimes I think I'd like a break from the depth and depressing nature of the lyrics, but the explosive music moves me nonetheless.

Biohazard is: Evan Seinfeld - vocals and bass; Billy Graziadei - vocals and guitar; Leo Curley - lead guitar; Danny Schuler - drums.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
