Influential hardcore/thrash guitarist/vocalist Billy Graziadei, aka BILLYBIO, of groundbreaking bands Biohazard and Powerflo dropped his debut solo album, Feed The Fire, late last year via AFM Records. The aggressive, no-holds-barred record is available now via all digital retailers and the official AFM store here: https://linktr.ee/billybiohazard
In addition, Feed The Fire is now available in a limited 7" vinyl edition featuring unreleased material via Bridge Nine Records. Order here: www.b9store.com/billybio
Today, following up to his three previously released music videos for "Freedom's Never Free", "Rise and Slay" and "Feed the Fire", BILLYBIO has unleashed a fourth new music video, this time for the unrelenting track "Enemy". Watch the volatile new video, directed by BILLYBIO and Steedo for Rock 'N' Roll Video, here via YouTube and Facebook.
BILLYBIO says about "Enemy": "I wrote a song about the two sides of a political enemy. Is the political detainee who stands up for his kind, sacrificing their own well-being for the benefit of everyone else, an actual enemy? Is the person who stands up for those who can't stand on their own, a friend or a foe? One of the most controversial subjects while I was writing this song was waterboarding, the scene at the end of the video was the worst thing I've ever experienced. There are two sides in life, with, or against. Pick one."
Unfiltered and incendiary, Feed The Fire is an adrenaline rush of hardcore-thrash at its purest form. The relentless sonic attack features 13 unwavering tracks that conjure early Biohazard nostalgia while sounding nevermore fresh. Billy's unabashed lyrics speak his truth as he leaves it all on the record unabashed and ready to whip the pit into a furious cyclone.
"I've always wanted to do a solo release and the timing of everything that I have been working on just seemed to fall in place," says BILLYBIO about his solo venture. "I always let the creative juices flow, I don't try and restrict them to fit a certain genre. With BILLYBIO, it's 100% me. No influence from anyone else. This is who I am and what I've become. I'm a product of everyone I've met, talked with, shared my stories with... and a bit of their stories as well. Anyone who's a fan of what I've done, especially with Biohazard, will love this! There's something there for every fan of heavy underground music!"
