Evan Seinfeld may have split with Biohazard, but the hardcore/metal (and hardcore porn) star is back with another ear-slamming band. Attika 7--who also feature celebrity motorcycle builder Rusty Coones, on guitar, along with former members of Kyuss, Nonpoint, and UPO--spew brawny riffs, Rob Zombie-ish electronic bits, and a snarling street vibe reminiscent of Seinfeld’s previous outfit. On “Serial Killer,” amid a dynamic din, the frontman roars as menacingly ever, while also showing increased range as vocalist.
Evan Seinfeld (ex-Biohazard) returns here with a surprisingly not-in-your-face mixture of hardcore, dated, angsty industrial rock (think White Zombie during their heyday) and straight-ahead groove metal. Songs like "All or Nothing" and "Devil's Daughter" just kind of plough ahead in a Black Sabbath groove, almost displaying a maturity that Seinfeld never took the time to explore musically before. Some tracks, like "Greed and Power," are simplistic punk tunes, to a fault, while a spoken-word interlude ("The Hard Cold Truth") wasn't the best idea.
