Body Count sign with Century Media, recording new LP

Thursday, June 16, 2016 8:43 AM PT


Official press release:

The highly controversial and iconic, Body Count (featuring Ice-T on vocals), has officially inked a world-wide deal with Century Media Records and have begun tracking their highly anticipated new, full-length offering with Will Putney (Miss May I, Upon A Burning Body). Putney also tracked the group's last effort, Manslaughter, which caught the entire genre's immediate attention with its sheer abrasiveness and unabashed brutality. Stay tuned to for all up-to-date information and don't miss Body Count headlining The Marquee Theater in Phoenix, AZ tomorrow night (June 17th).

Ice- T states: "It's cool to be a member of The Century Label Group alongside such a lot of well-established metal artists. With our last album Manslaughter, we tested the waters and got a great response from the fans and critics. Now it's time to go kill it and make a more aggressive album and keep the Body Count style intact. Producer, Will Putney (Miss May I, Upon A Burning Body), is like a member of the band and has an excellent ear. He's a great producer because he captures the true essence of our band's sound. Once we are done writing the song it's his job to step in and make it sound better. He helps move the record in the right direction, were anticipating working with him again. Once the records done, were going to shoot a lot of music videos and perform spot-dates on certain tests, etc."

This is 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 made records, 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.

Makes sense they went with Will. Ice-T lives a few blocks from the studio.

Last time I heard Ice talking about this album, he said it was going to come out on Sumerian. Wonder what happened...

but if the music is angry, where does it come from? Why can't the music be happy? Why can't we get the angry music some ice cream and balloons?
Don't put the ice cream on the balloons though, keep them separate.

Hey fellas..? Ya'll want to start a kickstarter slash gofundme machine for the ice cream and balloons to give to the angry music? We would be doing the Lord's work and that would be good.
I like helping music and people and the internets. <3 <3

Namaste.

You think saying "f@ggot" is homophobic? As in, calling someone a "f@ggot" means you're mortally afraid of gay people?

What a f@g.

Century Media can at least afford to take a huge loss. They better hope casual television fans are also CD collectors. They can move a total of 15 copies at best buy over the course of the year
