Music has always been the central, unifying force in Billy Graziadei’s life. Early musical training took place on the Graziadei family’s old, forever out-of-tune upright piano. Billy’s desire to explore all forms and variations of music did not balance well with the authoritative doctrine employed by most of his music teachers. Rebelling from this rigid view of music, Billy began studying music under the guidance of his Grandfather and Uncle, both of whom he had always admired.
Billy continued to study piano and expand his musical vocabulary while growing up, finding inspiration in so many forms of music but it wasn’t until he stumbled into the underground world of punk-rock music that his musical taste was really sparked into growth. While immersing himself in the sounds, perspective, and culture of the punk underground, Billy’s desire to create new, innovative music led him to the late 80’s hardcore scene in New York City. Sunday matinee hardcore shows at CBGB’s…Friday night metal shows at Brooklyn’s Lamour rock club. It was here that Billy found his musical home and it was here that Billy helped form a band that would take the metal/hard-core scene by storm….it was the birth of BIOHAZARD.

Using a mixture of hardcore, beatdown, 90s hip-hop and thrash as a canvas to express their feelings about this crazy world we live in, CutthroatLA is a band of brothers coming from different musical backgrounds to form a bond that can’t be broken.
With all members having a lengthy history in other bands touring the world for years, CutthroatLA was assembled after getting together to jam and everything clicked.
The founder of Cutthroat LA goes by the name of Neil Roemer. Neil has toured overseas fronting the OG LA hardcore/crossover legends, Downset along side bands like Madball, Agnostic Front, First Blood, and Biohazard to name a few. He started singing in bands in 1994 and hasn’t dropped the mic yet.
