"...Biohazard pump out serious raw frustration with both meaning and metal....[they] are desperate and there's nothing quiet about them..."
NME (Magazine) - 8/23/97, p.52
"...NO HOLDS BARRED is a compendium of bullying, fist-waving machismo untidily saddled on the back of huge, turgid slabs of grungy guitar and sledgehamer drumming, tailor-made for people who talk about 'the system' and 'being f---ed up' all the time..."

Fans of rap-metal get a chance to dive into the back catalog of one of the genre's innovators with this two-disc collection of some of Biohazard's classic albums. Featuring the band's second album, 1992's Urban Discipline, along with 1997's live No Holds Barred, this set gives listeners the chance to hear the band both on-stage and off, giving a taste of the muscular hybrid metal-rap sound the band helped to pioneer. While there aren't any bonus materials to draw in old fans, this set is the perfect gateway collection for any budding Biohazard fan. ~ Gregory Heaney
