When Ice-T decided to form a metal band in the early 90s, this was an unprecedented crossing of the boundary between the worlds of rap and rock. And it still is – unless you can point me to all them other established rappers who have their metal side projects. Still, Body Count have never really fit in the context of the metal scene. And it seems this has pushed Ice-T and his gang to play even heavier, more brutal and eviler music.
All the songs carry a strong socio-political charge, with Ice-T making very brutal and direct – but quite accurate – cuts at the heart of topics such as racism, police brutality, society’s polarization, and the epidemic of poverty and violence. For example, in the four and a half minute long ‘No Lives Matter’ synthesizes a much more adequate position on everything about the Black Lives Matter movement than many of the media outlets that have dedicated countless pages and hours of airtime to the topic.
If you are a dedicated fan of Body Count, you might perceive these changes as abandoning the things that gave the band its charm. But there is no denying that the combination of musical and lyrical consistency gives ‘Bloodlust’ a sense of purpose and strength that the band’s other releases just lack. Thanks to this, it is now Body Count the ones that other metal bands should take note of.
