Fronted by legendary rapper Ice-T, Body Count deliver their message through blunt lyricism and guitarist Ernie C’s thrashing riffs. “Bum-Rush” is no exception. Like with the lead single, “Carnivore”, the track’s modern metal production suits the band well. They sound as tight — and angry — as ever.
“Another fast moving Body Count track continuing my attempt to wake people up,” Ice-T said in a press release for the music video, which was directed Jay Rodriguez. Shot in Los Angeles and New York, the espionage-themed video is proper visual accompaniment for the chaotic track.
Carnivore arrives on March 6th, and Body Count will celebrate its release with a March 3rd listening party hosted by SiriusXM’s LiquidMetal at Sony Square in New York City. The band then plays New York’s Webster Hall on March 15th and Rocklahoma on May 23rd before heading to Europe for festival dates this summer. Get tickets here.
