Released in 1990, Biohazard's debut features the Brooklyn-bred mixture of hardcore, metal and hints of hip-hop the band became associated with throughout the '90s. With fat metal riffs and group-yell vocals, the album is not all that different sonically from The Beasties' License To Ill, just minus any tongue-in-cheek smart-aleck-ery. The songs on Biohazard are not so much about partying with 40s of malt liquor as getting into fist-fights and the various reasons Brooklyn is, in their opinion, the best.
