Last year, long-time Biohazard fans pinched themselves at the announcement that the classic line-up was reforming for the European 2023 festival season. Apparently Billy Graziadei (vocals/rhythm guitar), Bobby Hambel (lead guitar), Evan Seinfeld (lead vocals/bass) and Danny Schuler (drums) had a heart to heart during the pandemic and decided to put the band back together. Originally formed in 1987 in Brooklyn, New York, they were one of the first bands to blend hardcore/punk and heavy metal with elements of hip hop. In 1992 they debuted with ‘Urban Discipline’ but it was their seminal album ‘State of the World Address’ with its socially aware lyrics and an inimitable mix of thrash, groove and hardcore that established them as a top hardcore/metal/crossover act. This classic line-up was also responsible for the band’s final studio effort to date, ‘Reborn in Defiance’ (2012), the first album to feature the classic line-up since ‘State of the World Address’. Since 2016 they’d been flying under the radar with Billy Graziadei the only one of the band members still musically active but now the classic line-up is back and singer Evan Seinfeld has stated that a new album should drop in the foreseeable future.
