“You think you know me? Fuck you!” – the opening lines of ‘Vengeance Is Mine’, the first track off Biohazard‘s ninth full-length, ‘Reborn In Defiance’. It may not be intended, but the title itself signifies a new chapter in Biohazard‘s history; vocalist/bassist and founding member Evan Seinfeld left the band shortly after recording, leaving the remaining four members to carry on, albeit with lead guitarist Scott Roberts moving to bass/vocals. The band may be getting on; they’ve been round 25 years now, but they don’t appear to have lost any of their energy or attitude. Indeed, they can still give the young’uns a run for their money in how to do hardcore the right way.
