4.0 out of 5 stars HARDCORE!!!!!!, 12 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mata Leao (Audio CD)
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.
