BODY COUNT Have Begun Recording Their Next Studio Album ‘Merciless’

Titled "Merciless", the new Body Count record is tentatively due before the end of the year via Century Media.

BODY COUNT have begun the recording process for their follow up to 2020’s “Carnivore”, according to frontman Ice-T.

Titled “Merciless”, the record is tentatively due before the end of the year via Century Media.

Yesterday, (Saturday, February 19), Ice-T posted to his Twitter account: “I’m proud to say we just finished the FIRST day of writing, recording and track selection for the New BC Album ‘MERCILESS’ Only one goal… It’s gotta be HARDER than the last…. It already is. @BodyCountBand @centurymediaeu”.

“Carnivore” continued the path of its uncompromising and critically acclaimed predecessors, “Bloodlust” and “Manslaugther”, in pairing Ice-T’s impassioned and socio-critical lyrics with thick guitar riffs and nods to metal and hardcore greats like SLAYER, METALLICA, PANTERA, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. Guest musicians on the LP included Amy Lee (EVANESCENCE), Dave Lombardo (ex-SLAYER), Jamey Jasta (HATEBREED) and Riley Gale (POWER TRIP).
