Biohazard - _No Holds Barred_
(Roadrunner, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 10)
New York's favorite (and probably most popular) hardcore outfit releases this massive 24-track recording, captured 100 percent live (uncut and raw) in Europe. While the production sounds good, with crisp vocals, guitar tones and drums, it's the excess of monotonous material that is the downfall of this recording. Only so many times can one hear about "surviving the streets" or "being true and having respect". Am I right? But I guess that is the appeal of Biohazard and having "street" credibility, and why the band continues to have a following even though they were recently dropped from their label (Warner/Elektra). Some of the songs I actually know and like; it's just that I can only take so much Biohazard before I get bored. If I didn't hear this record ever again, my life wouldn't be any different. A "must have" only for fans of live albums and these tattooed muthafuckaz.
