Biohazard - Biohazard

Posted on Wednesday, September 08, 2010

This is an above average LP. Biohazard has lots of potential and puts a lot of themselves into their music. Unfortunately, sometimes the results are less than memorable. The Biohazard sound is similar to Sick of It All or U.S.A. for M.O.D. era M.O.D.. It’s the New York Crossover sound, basically. Although I’m also reminded of an older, meatier version of MX-Machine in some places too. There are a few real gems on this LP: “Survival of the Fittest,” “Scarred for Life,” and “Justified Violence” really stand out. The rest are not quite as memorable, although none of the songs are actually bad. On the cassette inlay card the order of the songs on side two is wrong: “Panic Attack” comes before “Pain.” The order on the actual cassette is correct. Anyway, this album shows a lot of promise and I’m looking forward to hearing more from this band.

{Now I know what a lot of you think about the Biohazard of today, but this, their very first album, was all Hardcore, and no Rap, and so probably their all time best.}
