Biohazard is primarily a hardcore band that otherwise plays around with rap and hip hop. The band pretends to be into social causes and even has gotten into a brawl with Morbid Angel. The New Yorkers are famous for guest appearances on their albums and a member's TV career. Curley left the band in the spring of 2002.
It was announced in 2004 that singer and bassist Evan Seinfeld was officially entering the pornography business. The Oz actor would star in films with his porn actress wife, Tera Patrick. Singer/guitarist Billy Graziadei and Kittie bassist Jennifer Arroyo formed a new band called Rodek. Evan Seinfeld left the band in May of 2011. Scott Roberts, who had played on the band's Means To An End album in 2005, will play with Biohazard at the Download festival and Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards in June. A permanent replacement was being sought. The band had a new album due this autumn. In 2012, Biohazard, Revolver magazine and Repudo were giving away the band’s new album, Reborn In Defiance, in its entirety for free to all fans in the United States. Fans were to go to www.repudo.com before the whole scheme was cancelled due to “circumstances beyond our control.”
BIOHAZARD - UNCIVILIZATION - SANCTUARY/EMI
The old rapcore New Yorkers Biohazard must have simultaneously felt smug and disgusted at a market that rewards and bestows riches on all the new hip hop core/mallcore posers like Slip Knot and Korn, when in actual fact it was none other than these riff raffs that were at the retrogarde of it all. Well, they have had their share of success as well, and so the band has not disappeared obviously. On the latest, Biohazard mixes old hardcore and hip hopping riffing with the ding dang dong sounds of the newer breed of bounce rock loonies - all with the help of a few friends. Having invited back an old producer, the foursome feature people from bands like Slipknot (aha!), Pantera and Type O Negative to jam through songs like Sellout, Wide Awake and HFFK (Hate, Fuck, Fight, Kill), etc. Fans of old Biohazard and mallcore will like this. Fans of both will like this even more. - Ali "The Metallian"
BIOHAZARD - MEANS TO AN END - SPV
Apparently, Means To An End is Biohazard's farewell album. The rapcore New Yorkers identified themselves too closely with a dying fad, veered into different directions and lost their new-found ADD fans and withered away. Frankly, my impression was that the band had already disbanded prior to this album's arrival. Regardless, and as mentioned, the band is already history anyway.
Is Means To An End any more serious than its most recent predecessors? Yes, the band makes an attempt to return to its early '90s sound. There is more gang backing vocals, less rap and more of that legendary urban ghetto myth here than the band's recent output. The album begins with the sound of sirens ringing in the 'hood, but that is usual for a band that is acting its way through albums these days. The band has not been there for years, and frankly neither have the fans. This is all boring stuff looked at it either way, but Means To An End has steady beats, some moshy parts, throaty vocals, backing vocals and a couple of nominal leads that are quite short. Hopefully where Biohazard goes, fellow rapping New Yorkers Anthrax will follow... - Ali "The Metallian"
