  • Description

    BODY COUNT, the gangster-metal collective whose renegade track “Cop Killer” sent politicians, parents and law enforcement officials into a proverbial tailspin when it was released a quarter-century ago, prdoudly presents its new album “Bloodlust”. It delivers 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!” Tracks like “No Lives Matter,” “Black Hoodie” and album opener, “Civil War” pulse with a relevance and slam with a sense of urgency that’s been missing for far too long. “I may have an acting job to fall back on, but my core still looks out there and says that people are a bunch of pussies. What the fuck!?! I never had a hard time putting myself on the line, now I want people to stand up and open their eyes. People are dumb, they don’t know. The cops shoot kids and they say it’s white people – it ain’t white people, it’s the cops! Racism is real, but that’s not all that’s happening here. I’m singing to my white audience and letting them know that I see them as an ally, and I’m singing to my black audience and telling them to judge a devil by their deeds.” White, black, blue or red, the songs on “Bloodlust” are color-blind in their ferocity and impact, but as one can hear Ice-T, his band and guests – including Dave Mustaine, Randy Blythe, and Max Cavalera – also had loads of fun creating this record. “The intention here was to make some great music, open some eyes, and offer people some entertainment. People should rock to this – I didn’t want to make a mix tape, I wanted to make a BODY COUNT album.”
