Biohazard are one of those bands who learn from their mistakes. Starting out as a popular hardcore outfit they became fairly popular and a big record label snaps em up and turns them into commercial rubbish!!! However unlike some other bands who went down this road, Biohazard realised the problem, signed to a smaller label and started writing music the way they want too, not the way the record label want too!
If you have listened to "Kill or be Killed" by biohazard expect pretty much the same with "Means to an end". I will however state that this album seems more refined, has better sound quality, and has some brilliant gang vocals (think hatebreed). Expect some classic biohazard attributes, such as catchy riffs, dual vocals and some killer funky breakdowns.
To be put simple, Biohazard are doing what they do best, are playing mucic the way they want too! This is heavier than early biohazard, and when writing the album they definately had live shows in theier heads, as gang vocals are a plenty.
Catchy and heavy, biohazard are back with another instalment of pure hardcore.....ENJOY!

After the last three albums; all of which had some great songs but lacked an overall quality, Biohazard really hit it home with their best album in about ten years.
The album is a mixture of the new direction taken with 'Kill or be Killed,' and the classic Biohazard direction, only really heavy, seriously and unusually heavy, surprisingly heavy even for Biohazard. 'The Fire Burns Inside,' sounds like it could've been from their last album... but if it was it'd have been the best song on it, that is the level of material on offer here.
Moreover, the songs are just really good, of a simply superb quality. Special notice must go out to the reinvigorated lead guitar ethic, with blistering solos that are simply compelling.
The production is spot on, the performances are energetic and the lyrics are as interesting and well written as you'd expect from the band.
At times you could be forgiven for thinking you are listening to a brand new, hungry band rather than a genre defining veteran, but that just goes to show how important and relevant Biohazard are today!

Best songs: 'Break it Away From Me,' and 'Set Me Free,'

When the band released Kill or be killed I think a lot of fans were taken back by their change of style from a decent metal to sound to heavy metal and in some parts maybe even death metal. The songs they were singing about were much more aggressive and definitely stepped away from their previous albums and were a far cry from their early material. With this album I'm sure they were well aware that this was going to be the last album, at least for some time, hence why they called it Means to an end and why the songs are about the end of an era. With this in mind I think they may have been trying to please fans of their older material (but not the early stuff) and fans of their previous album too. This was a hard thing to do need I say but I think they carried it off pretty well. Although the album does move away from such an aggressive metal sound as Kill or be killed, it is still very different from anything pre-New World Disorder. The vocals have not changed very much either, although there is not as much screaming. They definitely have maintained that throaty aggressive sound, which I am not much of a fan of. I'm sure I'm definitely with many other fans of their previous material too.

Whereas some of the reviewers have said that the album sounds a lot more like their earlier material I have to disagree. Yes, they have brought the bass back up front and they have calmed down that heavy metal sound that was on the previous album, but they have not gone back to their old style of rapping mixed with singing with a heavy punk rock sound. This is very different to that and I would say is just a development from Kill or be killed into a different sound again.
