New York hardcore veterans Biohazard are teaming up with Revolver Magazine and Repudo to blaze yet another trail and give away their new record “Reborn In Defiance” in its entirety for FREE to all fans in the United States starting January 20th 2012.

The first such promotion ever launched, the record will be available for free download off of Revolver Magazine’s website revolvermag.com as well as
through the technology offered by Repudo.com. Fans can check into Biohazard “Containment Zones” (record stores, venues, and more) across the United States using the Repudo app on their smart phones and download the new record directly to their phones or send it to their email inbox. A full map of the Containment Zones will be available soon. For fans who still want a physical copy of REBORN IN DEFIANCE, CDs will be made available for
sale in conjunction with Record Store Day in April and will include exclusive additional content.

“When we started, we followed our hearts and innovated a new direction for heavy music, and today we’re doing the same.” says Biohazard vocalist/guitarist Billy Graziadei. “Technology has allowed us to find a new way to not only reach out to fans but also to thank them for their support all these years. Grab our album for free and we’ll see you on tour!”

REBORN IN DEFIANCE is the highly anticipated new record that was recorded
by the band’s original lineup, its first such recording in almost 18 years, with producer Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Metallica).

CD Review: Biohazard “Reborn In Defiance”

“Reborn In Defiance”
Produced by: Toby Wright
Tracks: 13

Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars

“Reborn In Defiance” is the latest record from the legendary hardcore band Biohazard. The album is the first in 18 years to feature the bands original line up consisting of Evan Seinfeld, Billy Graziadei, Bobby Hambel and Danny Schuler. The album features 13 all new original tracks and produced by Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Metallica).

The 13 tracks contained on “Reborn In Defiance” are classic Biohazard NYC hardcore. Tracks such as “Your Disease” and “Waste Away” really showcase the bands growth while still staying true to the bands hardcore roots.  Producer Toby Wright was the perfect choice for this album as he really pushes the sonic barriers of heaviness with this album. Evan Seinfeld’s vocal presence shines through putting the icing on the proverbial cake. Biohazard fans both new and old with truly appreciate this album. The only negative I could find really has nothing to do with the album and that being we won’t get to see and hear Evan perform these songs live on the bands upcoming tour.
