BIOHAZARD's SEINFELD: 'SANCTUARY Has Destroyed Our Chances Of Breaking Through'

BIOHAZARD frontman Evan Seinfeld has slammed the band's U.S. label, Sanctuary Records, for the lack of promotional and marketing push given to the group's last two studio CDs, claiming that the company is solely to blame for the group's diminishing popularity this side of the Atlantic. When asked by HitThePit.com how being on Sanctuary has changed things for the band in terms of exposure and opportunities, Seinfeld responded, "Sanctuary has single-handedly destroyed my hopes of BIOHAZARD ever breaking through to the next level. With thousands of bands, on hundreds of labels all pushing hard, it became discouraging when they don't want to spend any real money to keep up with the Jones! Like bands that totally suck come out, get radio play, play Ozzfest... but yet they may be gone in two years! We outlive it all! Labels! Trends! If you are in a band, just stay true to your music, it will live forever! Everything else is fuckin' bullshit! The music industry is wack! For your knowledge....every band you see on the second stage of Ozzfest paid $75,000 to Sharon to get there! That's doesn't mean they are good, that means they have money! They (Ozzfest) will not put any bands on that have history like BIOHAZARD, unless you have a big radio push! Labels need to spend several hundred thousand dollars to get a song played. Without money you probably can't get any big tours! We play a lot in Europe, that's where it is real for us. Not so trendy there...we sell out clubs there without gay MTV!"
