BIOHAZARD Interviewed On KNAC.COM's 'The Vault' (Video)

DJ Will of KNAC.COM's "The Vault" show conducted an interview with BIOHAZARD members Danny Schuler (drums), Bobby Hambel (guitar) and Billy Graziadei (guitar, vocals) in November 2010 at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California. You can watch the chat below.

BIOHAZARD recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records for the world outside North America. The group's tenth studio album is scheduled for an early 2011 release. The follow-up to 2005's "Means To An End" is being produced by Toby Wright, who has previously worked with KORN, SLAYER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, KISS, FEAR FACTORY, IN FLAMES, STONE SOUR and OZZY OSBOURNE, among others. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Decay", "Screaming For Change" and "Vengeance Is Mine", the latter of which the band debuted during its 2009 European tour.

BIOHAZARD's new album marks the first time the four original members — Evan Seinfeld (vocals, bass), Billy Graziadei (guitar, vocals), Danny Schuler (drums) and Bobby Hambel (guitar) — have recorded together since 1994's breakthrough CD "State Of The World Address".

States Schuler: "Finally, we are in the studio recording our first record together with the original lineup since 1994! 16 years! Feels like a lifetime since we last did this together, and the experience has been amazing. We've recorded over an hour of music, and we are extremely excited and grateful to be able to share it all with you." Seinfeld says the new album will contain "bone-crushing riffs fused with dark melodies and uncompromising lyrics rapped at you like Only BIOHAZARD can deliver… the danger is back." Wright adds, "This is the BEST hardcore band in the world, and this is going to be a kick-ass record that proves that is a fact."

In a recent interview with AOL's Noisecreep, Seinfeld stated about BIOHAZARD's new material, "The music is the best we've ever written. I'm nervous, because it's almost too good."

According to Seinfeld, BIOHAZARD's forthcoming album is more "introspective" than the band's previous efforts. "We're hardened guys who seen a lot and have been growing toward self-actualization," Seinfeld told Noisecreep. "The song 'Decay' is about the environment. We will always address politics, inner struggles and dysfunction. And while this is not a brand new subject, it's still a new look."

In an interview with Gun Shy Assassin, Seinfeld described the new BIOHAZARD material as "big, nasty, metal and hardcore" with "melody and hooks, which we've never had before," and promised that the new stuff was heavy, with "moments that feel like 'Urban Discipline' [1991] or 'State of the World Address' [1994]." He said it was "pissed off and thrashy and there are a lot of those intense old-school moments."

BIOHAZARD last year finished a 22-month reunion world tour where the band played 100-plus shows on five continents.
