There's two ways to look at former Biohazard singer/bassist and wannabe pornstar Evan Seinfeld: either he's a guy who's made the most of limited musical talent and even less, ahem, "acting" ability, or he's the tatted-up rock star who got to bang his former spouse Tera Patrick on camera a few times. Whichever one, fronting this Attika 7 project doesn't make him any more endearing. Insipid lyrics, absolutely zero feel, and derivative riffs that make Godsmack seem ingenious add up to everything that gives metal a bad name. At one point, Seinfeld even tries what is ostensibly slam poetry ("The Hard Cold Truth"), which is just as ridiculous as it sounds. He bravely manages to rhyme "you" with "do" and "knew" and "through" — congrats, Evan, next step will be the "Brain Play" section of Highlights for Children. When actually trying to sing, he sounds at best like a Gene Simmons impersonator, but even Kiss fans couldn't take a full record of this. At least with Biohazard, Seinfeld could count on being the opening act booed offstage by fans waiting for headliner Slayer. He'll be lucky if audiences even bother to waste that much energy on this drivel.
