The highly controversial and iconic, Body Count (featuring Ice-T) returned on Century Media Records in 2017 with a highly anticipated new full-length produced by Will Putney (Miss May I, Upon A Burning Body). While predecessor Manslaughter was a call to arms and return to power, Bloodlust is a merciless battle, filled to capacity with razor-sharp riffs, street born punk attitude and belligerent lyrics. Mastermind Ice-T is breathing fire and brimstone from the very first to the very last song. Be it the incendiary opening track "Civil War," the gangster anthem "The Ski Mask Way," the sick "Here I Go Again," the thrashing massacre "Walk With Me..." or politically charged stuff like the two video tracks "No Lives Matter" and "Black Hoodie," Bloodlust shows Body Count in peak form, stronger and more furious than ever before.

Ice-T and cofounder/lead guitarist Ernie C have perfected their mix of thrash, punk and bottom heavy doom across five albums, hitting a zenith with the unstoppable Manslaughter, backed by bassist/songwriter Vincent Price, drummer Ill Will (joined in 2009) and new guitarist Juan Garcia of Evildead. They embody the monumental Southern California tradition of street born punk bands like Suicidal Tendencies combined with the aggressive aural napalm of Slayer. From the punk bite of their gold debut through the metallic triumph of Born Dead (1994), Violent Demise: The Last Days (1997) and Murder 4 Hire (2006), to the all encompassing Manslaughter, which merges the strengths of the band's entire catalog.

Driven by the same iconoclastic, anti-authoritarian and pimp-turned-poet mentality that made Ice-T a gangster rap pioneer, a platinum artist from the streets and a household name in film and television before "rapper/actor" was a commonly used term, Body Count flipped the script with the same tenacity when they bumrushed heavy metal. The first rumblings of Body Count were heard in the eponymous song unleashed on Ice-T's gigantic O.G.: Original Gangster album in 1991, which hit stores just two months after Ice's first major movie role in the modern crime classic, New Jack City. The fierce thrash of the "Body Count" anthem put people on notice that the Megadeth cap Ice-T wore on MTV wasn't for show: aggressive heavy metal and hardcore is in his blood.
