The wait is finally over, as Ice-T’s Body Count is back and more vicious than ever. The band’s new full-length album, “Bloodlust,” is set for a March 31st release via Century Media Records and the scathing music video for “No Lives Matter” can be seen below.
Body Count is the gangster metal collective that made music fearsome to mainstream America and with “Cop Killer” sent politicians, parents, and law enforcement officials into a proverbial tailspin a quarter-century ago.
“Music happens in climates,” Body Count frontman Ice-T says when asked about his expectations for the band’s new opus “Bloodlust,” a razor-sharp collection of social right hooks and body blows that paint a picture of an America in utter and complete shambles. “Groups like Rage Against The Machine and Korn were born when the world was in turmoil, then music went into this delusional period where hip-hop became about nothing more than poppin’ bottles. Now we have impending doom again, racism is at an all-time high and it’s our season again. This is the optimal time for a Body Count record.”
