One of Bio's best from the tail end of 1992. A clear, unfussy production with a good drum sound, and buzz saw guitars with a strong, low end bass guitar presence. Ok, the lead guitar work is very average (Bobby Hambel was never in the same class as peers like Rocky George) but it doesn't really matter too much. There's tons of 'street' attitude, a hard urban vibe and very confrontational lyrics (Quite a lot of that much loved term of endearment, the M/F word!) The balance of Hardcore & Metal is just right here, HC enough for the Rollins crowd, and metallic enough for the thrashers! It's almost a street gang mentality that Biohazard have here; an Us Vs The World POV! Lot's of gang style choruses backing up Evan Seinfeld's Lemmy meets Rollins style lead vocals . The Rap influences that the band are well known for seemed to have not strongly developed at this stage, There's certainly not the guest stars & DJ's etc of later albums.
There's a few tracks off the debut album (Biohazard) included on here that are actually some of the band's most catchy songs, and there are some demo songs that actually sound as good as their more professional counterparts.
Best album alongside New World Disorder (1999), Mata Leao (1996) and 2005's Means To An End.
Let's hope they reform and record again soon....
