Meaning and History

Biohazard Logo History

What is Biohazard?

A Brooklyn metal band that brought a new dimension to heavy music by adding rap as solos to their compositions.

The band’s logo has not changed since its inception, despite changes in the composition and even the group’s demise. After the revival of Biohazard in 2008, the remaining trio also used the first emblem.

The logo of the musicians appeared after signing a contract with the record company Maze. Before this, the group independently released cassettes. With a new image and logo, they went on a European tour.

The visual sign is a circle into which three pairs of horns are wedged from different sides. The number three is significant for the group since just three friends originally formed the group. Billy Graziadei joined later. Since 2008, the trio has again become relevant since exactly 3 of its members went on tour in connection with the 20th anniversary of the group.

Biohazard Symbol

The joining of the horns in a circle indicates the connection between the participants through the music. Together they create something beautiful, and the contribution of each is equal.

The circle is the symbol of the plate and disk.

Elements are also related to magic and the occult sciences as part of heavy music culture.

  1. The circle in such a system is a symbol of protection from everything bad. However, its sides are torn apart by the entry of three elements with horns, corresponding to the image of a goat in the pentagram of the Satanists. Such graphic figures embody the culture of protest with generally accepted norms, a demonstration of the absence of fear of death.
  2. The circle in esotericism is also a sign of infinity and perfection. Its violation by lower elements demonstrates the sinful nature of man. And the group’s songs about life on the streets confirm the idea of the fall.
  3. Another reading of the image is connected with the similarity of the elements emerging from the circle with the letter cross used to denote the crucifixion in early Christianity. In this case, three is the symbol of the trinity. Man has divine protection through the death of Christ. Therefore, you can not be afraid and go beyond the protective circle that embodies the generally accepted opinion and stereotypes. The death of Christ forgives sins and the transgressions people commit.

All elements are drawn in such a way that they give the impression of volume forged from iron. Metal indicates the style of music as something strong and heavy.

Above the image is the name of the group in capital letters.

In 1992, Rolling Stone magazine recognized the logo as the best emblem of the year.

Font and Colors

Biohazard Emblem

The color of the emblem is black with white trim.

  • Black – evil, sin, heavy music.
  • White – light, salvation, hope.

The font of the inscription is unusual, with truncated corners, similar to Contraption Bold, but with a Z style, as in Unione Force Regular. The letters look like faceted gems. This hints at the value of the band’s creativity and its stardom.
