Slipknot, Pantera’s Phil Anselmo and Cypress Hill’s Sen Dog will appear on Biohazard’s sixth studio album.
Uncivilization, due September 11, also features collaborations with
various members of Sepultura, Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta, Agnostic Front’s
Roger Miret and Type O Negative’s Peter Steele.
Biohazard singer/guitarist Billy Graziadei, singer/bassist Evan Seinfeld,
guitarist Leo Curley and drummer Danny Schuler produced most of the album on their own in their Brooklyn, New York, studio, according to management.
Miami producer Jive Jones, the man behind Mandy Moore’s sugary single
“Candy,” co-produced the album’s first single, “Last Man
Standing,” with Biohazard. The track features Sen Dog and New York’s DJ Rizz (see “Biohazard’s Next Features Sen Dog, Mandy Moore Collaborator” ).
Sen Dog last worked with the band on “How It Is,” from 1994’s State of the
Uncivilization marks Biohazard’s first release since signing to
Sanctuary Records, a metal renaissance label whose roster includes Megadeth, Rollins Band, Corrosion Of Conformity, Halford and Dust to Dust.
The 13-track album finds the band collaborating with their many friends in
the metal world. Slipknot appear on “Domination,” Phil Anselmo on
“H.F.F.K.,” Peter Steele on “Cross the Line,” Jamey Jasta on “Domination”
and Roger Miret on “Unified.”
Sepultura’s Igor Cavalera appears on “Gone,” while bandmates Andreas Kisser
and Derrick Green add guitars and vocals to “Trap.”
Biohazard will promote Uncivilization with a mid-August tour of the
northeastern U.S. and eastern Canada, before heading to Europe in
September for the Tattoo the Planet Tour. A full North American outing is
expected to commence upon their return.
Meanwhile, fans can catch Seinfeld as recurring character Jaz Hoyt on HBO’s
prison drama, “Oz.”
Biohazard formed in 1988 and released several rap-metal landmarks, including
1996’s Mata Leao and two collaborations with rappers Onyx, a remix of
“Slam” and the title song on the “Judgment Night” soundtrack.
