Revelation Fun Fact

Brooklyn metalcore band Biohazard made a name for themselves in the NYHC scene and beyond in the early ’90s, but it was the band name itself that would later cause some people to take notice in a different scene altogether.

There is a very well known survival/horror video game that was originally released in Japan under the name Biohazard. An employee at Capcom, the company that released the game, was aware of the band Biohazard in the States and felt Capcom wouldn’t be able to secure that trademark in the U.S. when they released the game here. Wanting to avoid any legal trouble, they eventually came up with a name for the U.S. version of the game, which we now know as Resident Evil.
