After the very popular and successful 'Urban Discipline,' and 'State of the World Address,' Biohazard had backed themselves into a corner. How could the band possibly top two such accomplished and genre defining albums? Well, the sad fact is that they couldn't and they didn't. Unfortunately many people dislike this album because it doesn't meet their unrealistic expectations... however, its still a great record that's well worth listening to.
Tracks like 'These Eyes (have seen),' and 'Authority,' are classic Biohazard and are easily as good as anything of their first three albums.
The main problem people have with this album is that most songs are short, around 2 minutes long, and have fewer guitar solos than usual... making an overall more punk sounding Biohazard album than people were expecting. However; while not timeless classics, these songs are fun none the less.
The real highlight of the album is the catchy and heavy 'Modern Democracy,' which rivals all the best Biohazard material. Overall, the production is awesome, with a very original Guitar tone and a great snare sound. The drumming on the longer songs is exemplary and This album is the first album where Billy 's voice is finally as good as Evan's voice.
This is a very underrated album and every Biohazard fan should at least give it a try.

Man, this is really good! It's probably the best production (Dave Jerden) that Biohazard had ever had, the bass is really upfront (and technically very good!), the drum sound is the best the band has had, and the guitars are very sharp. There's not a lot of lead work here but it's compensated for by the riffs & bass lines. To be honest, solos were always a bit hit & miss with this band, and often felt rather perfunctory.
The songs are varied, there are lot's of different tempos, the focus is mainly on a Hardcore sound, but there is still a very strong Rap influence on here, and even the odd funky/groovy part. Some of Bio's material, particularly towards the latter days, sounded a little one dimensional but this album is VERY creative!
These Eyes, Waiting To Die (with cool sounds from DJ Lethal) and the blistering, 100 mph Hardcore rant of Competition are particular standouts, but there is very little filler here. The balance of Evan & Billy on vocals also seems to be a 50/50 split here, when usually it's Seinfeld that dominates. I really enjoy this album's vocal work - not as OTT bordering on Death Metal as say Kill Or Be Killed but still very aggressive, and surprisingly emotive at times! Good lyrics as well that are not just focused on the harsh world of Brooklyn.
This album actually reminds me a bit of Suicidal Tendencies in parts, which I haven't really thought before.

This "experimental" offering from the Hazard lads is far less than orthodox. The average Biohazard fan would be slightly bemused to hear that the Brooklyn hoodlums had decided to do something different; and it's not hard to see why. After "State Of The World Address" failed to supply a quality follow-up to "Urban Discipline", but just gave the fans more of the same, "Mata Leao" attempts to be slightly different from the Hazard's usual blend of stomping riffs and shouty gang vocals. What we have here is a blend of stomping riffs, shouty gang vocals, and a frankly unwelcome punk influence. While the Hazard have always been influenced by punk, it is far more evident here than it ever was before. Perhaps Bobby Hambel's departure had something to do with this. He had apparently left the band due to "musical differences", and it's clear that Evan, Billy and Danny wanted to move in a much different direction to that which Hambel did. Mata Leao opens in incredible style with the unusually thrashy "Authority", which stands out particularly because the lads somehow manage to fit the F word in at least sixty times... ah, what fun. Unfortunately the remainder of the album seems to have been written in about a day. With the exception of "Modern Democracy", "Cleansing", "Gravity", the Sabbath-esque "In Vain" and possibly "Waiting To Die", the album contains nine tracks which could easily pass as fillers. For example, "Stigmatized" sounds like it was thrown together in the studio, "A Lot To Learn" was actually written several years ago, and it shows that the chaps had hardly reached their songwriting peak when it was written.Read more ›

Biohazard's fourth studio album marked the end of an era for the band. Bobby Hambel, the band's original lead guitarist had decided to quit after State of the world address and the band did not have a replacement for him on this album, meaning it was recorded as a trio, which is 1 of the reasons why this album sounds quite different from any other. Billy Graziadei did all the guitar throughout the album and as there is no lead guitarist those big solos and impressive, sometimes dramatic guitar interludes are absent. The overall sound is more simplistic but that is not necessarily such a bad thing and I do enjoy this album which has some great tracks. The first three albums were focused on urban life and this album steps into much wider topics, which was a breakthrough the band continued with. The songs are shorter than the average of Biohazard's previous works and instead of the usual metal sound this album is much more hardcore punk. The album's title "Mata Leao" roughly translates from Portuguese as "Lion Killer" and features a man being attacked by 2 lions on the cover. It's also the name of a chokehold in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which may have been a metaphor for what the band felt like they were in at that point.

The album opens with Authority which is fast and has that Biohazard attitude written all over it with the sing-along chorus "F*** the rules, F***, F*** the rules"! It's 1 of the best here. These eyes have seen is a decent track but follows suit with the rest of the material. It sounds less exciting with a pretty short exciting moment, shown in the chorus of this song. Stigmatized is another very punk sounding track with aggressive verses by Billy and a half decent chorus courtesy of Evan.
