California thrash upstarts Warbringer have returned to settle the score and cement their long term legacy fully with sixth album Weapons of Tomorrow. "Firepower Kills" probably ought to open all their future shows, just a complete stage setter for chaos. "Crushed Beneath The Tracks" and "Power Unsurpassed" in particular show this band would have ruled 1988 with ease and contain maximum neck injuring/ fist pumping potential (along with notable Slayer-worthy wraith shrieking). I am not 100% on the semi-thin snare sound but it hardly distracts the band's performances are all monstrous on this bad boy. Exodus, Annihilator fans or of course fans of more new school speed thrash bands should get all over this one. \m/

Body Count have a new video, perhaps their goriest ever. “Here I Go Again” will likely offend many but I for one found it to be hysterical and entertaining. Obviously Ice-T chopping up grandmas is way over the top and not meant to be taken seriously. The slow creepy voice narration from homie is also a lot of fun. You can see Ice hamming it up being both overly menacing and also making freaked out faces throughout as things get bloodier and bloodier.
In addition to the new video for “Here I Go Again”, BODY COUNT will be making their long awaited return to the stage in North America next month. The band will play their first show in the states since releasing Bloodlust on July 15th at the Chicago Open Air festival taking place at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL.Add to My Radar
Body Count are not our latest band spotlight because you don’t know who they are. Hell, they are infamous! How many rock bands still scare crusty old white people in 2017? Powerflo and Prophets Of Rage are helping bring actually good rap metal back, but Body Count hit the biggest grand slam of late with Bloodlust. The thrash act have been around since “Cop Killer” was the most controversial song in the world, but recently soared back to prominence in the metal scene with topical songs capturing current headlines. “Civil War”, “No Lives Matter” and the new album’s strongest cut “Black Hoodie” – paired with cameos from Dave Mustaine, Max Cavalera and Randy Blythe plus charismatic spoken intros from Ice-T – have secured the band respect well beyond a novelty status they never deserved. Bloodlust has been out a few months now and remains in heavy rotation for many of us.Add to My Radar
I have always loved Ice T since I was a youngin’. Dude just always cracked me up and had great songs. “Watch The Ice Break” is still one of my favorite jams of his and shit, that cover of him on Rolling Stone dressed as a cop back in the day truly scared the piss out of people, so you gotta respect that.
People give him shit for playing a cop on TV? Whatever. Dude wasn’t saying kill all cops on cop killer, just the fuckin’ pigs, man! We all know a couple good cops, right? C’mon…
Anyway, the new Body Count video for “Talk Shit, Get Shot” is pretty fucking amazing. There are some very memorable scenes and lyrics. “Body Count is back, #whothefuckcares” and “all we listen to in these streets is drake, drake, drake”. LMAO. Plus, only Ice T can get away with saying “you were speakin’ now your leakin’ w your bitch ass” and make it poetic. Break North, bitches…that would be your best route.
Anyway, I am not forgetting that gun violence is a major problem in the USA, but this is still hysterical and a good time.

The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is much tastier than the drink it helps promote. This year’s line-up is pretty diverse, with everyone from Body Count (Muthafuckaaaa!) to Wretched (sure to own the Victory Stage), and fan faves Veil Of Maya, Korn and Suicide Silence. You’ve even got Cannibal Corpse and Avenged Sevenfold for as big a contrast possible! Mushroomhead, Trivium, Asking Alexandira, Miss May I and more ensure there is something for most people (except black metal fans). Still, Darkest Hour and Islander kick ass and c’mon, who doesn’t want to be entertained by Ice-T?
My girl caught me skeezin’, she said, I wasn’t shit
I said, “It wasn’t me, baby, it was the muthafucka, evil dick”
