The iconic original roster of BIOHAZARD has officially announced that they are in the process of creating fresh and exciting music
The reunited classic lineup of BIOHAZARD features guitarist/vocalist Billy Gradziadei, guitarist Bobby Hambel, drummer Danny Schuler and bassist/vocalist Evan Seinfeld.
“The inspiration’s coming from these shows,” Bobby tells Le Coin Metal in a new interview (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “Being back together, celebrating and doing all these shows, it’s great. We’re having a good time, but now we’re getting the vibe from the crowd and we’re feeling it, and it’s getting in our bones. We’re getting that hunger and the ideas are starting to come out off of these shows.”
Billy adds: “For me, it’s kind of cool because the other reason I did [my solo project] BILLYBIO is because there was no BIOHAZARD, and the songs that I would’ve been showing these guys just [ended up] BILLYBIO songs. So being back with these guys is, like… It’s cool to have another outlet for my music.”
As previously communicated, the classic BIOHAZARD lineup is all set to bolster MEGADETH with their musical prowess during a string of five electrifying performances in the United States and Canada this coming September.
The monumental reformation of Gradziadei, Hambel, Schuler, and Seinfeld first graced the stage on May 26, setting the Milwaukee Metal Fest ablaze at The Rave/Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
BIOHAZARD‘s presence won’t be fleeting in 2023. The year holds a plethora of appearances in store, including commanding slots at several international summer festivals. Additionally, fans across America can anticipate select performances that promise to deliver an unadulterated burst of BIOHAZARD‘s signature sound. Renowned for being one of the pioneering outfits to seamlessly blend hardcore punk and heavy metal with the vibrant essence of hip-hop, BIOHAZARD‘s reemergence has been a long-awaited thrill since Scott Roberts parted ways with the band seven years ago.
Scott Roberts, who lent his guitar prowess to BIOHAZARD‘s 2005 opus “Means To An End,” rejoined the ranks in June 2011, taking up the mantle from Evan Seinfeld. Commanding the front for nearly half a decade, Roberts exited the band’s ranks in February 2016. Seinfeld, an integral part of the band’s history, had his final studio recording with BIOHAZARD on the acclaimed 2012 release “Reborn In Defiance.” The album marked a resounding return to form for the band’s original lineup after an 18-year hiatus.
Beyond BIOHAZARD‘s reunion endeavors, Billy Gradziadei has ventured into other musical territories. He’s an active member of POWERFLO, a collaboration that also includes former FEAR FACTORY bassist/guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers, CYPRESS HILL‘s Sen Dog, and DOWNSET‘s Rogelio Lozano.
Billy‘s solo project, BILLYBIO, continued to carve its own path. In March 2022, the project unleashed a brand-new album, “Leaders And Liars,” via AFM Records, showcasing Gradziadei‘s unrelenting creative energy and musical vision.
As BIOHAZARD‘s resurgence graces stages around the world and members pursue their diverse musical passions, the echoes of their legendary sound and enduring impact continue to reverberate throughout the music landscape.
