Body Count - Body Count (LP)
Driven by the same iconoclastic, antiauthoritarian 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 his 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.
Body Count built a huge buzz on the inaugural run of the legendary Lollapalooza tour in 1991 - alongside Jane’s Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, Living Colour and the Violent Femmes - issuing their self-titled debut album in 1992 which was home to the well received single "There Goes the Neighborhood" and initially the controversial song "Cop Killer" which was called out by the President of the United States and sparked a huge boycott against Warner Bros. The group eventually elected to delete “Cop Killer” from future pressings as a result.
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), Body Count stands as the group that dropped hip-hop attitude into heavy metal and hard rock music before Rage Against The Machine, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead, despite nary an ounce of rapping over their mosh-pit inducing songs. Body Count is a full on metal band, fronted by a legendary rapper who drops knowledge, violent stories and verbal middle fingers, with a bellowing growl descended from some of punk rock’s most pissed off screamers.
In anticipation of Body Count's long awaited return in 2014 with their new Sumerian Records release Manslaughter, Rhino/Warner Bros. is unleashing the band's groundbreaking self-titled debut back on vinyl for new and old generations of metalheads alike.
