BODY COUNT, the metal band fronted by Ice-T, is currently mixing its new album, “Merciless”

The follow-up to 2020‘s “Carnivore” is set to arrive later this year via Century Media.

Yesterday (Saturday, July 15), the BODY COUNT singer tweeted the following update: “The New @BodyCountBand album is being Mixed as we speak ‘MERCILESS‘”.

Last October, Ice-T made an appearance on the “Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz” and discussed the upcoming BODY COUNT record, saying: “Will Putney‘s producing again. We’ve had three consecutive great albums working with Will; he understands. I call him ‘the Dr. Dre of metal,’ because he has the ability to produce different groups but make them sound like themselves, but just better.

“We did ‘Carnivore’, and right [when] our first date of touring was supposed to start, COVID hit,” he continued. “COVID hit, shut down all the stateside tour; 35 European festivals shut down; and we didn’t really get to really perform the album; we didn’t get to go out, and that kind of sucks.

“You make albums to perform ’em; you don’t make ’em just [to sit at home]. And we won a Grammy on that one. That was great; that was a great accolade. It kind of took the sting out of dropping an album to a dead scene; it took the sting out of it. But then the label’s, like, ‘Okay, we’ll do another album.’ And I’m, like, ‘Wait a minute. We didn’t even really get this one out good.”

Also discussing his process for recording vocals for BODY COUNTIce-T said: “Usually when I do songs, I’ll do the songs but I don’t complete ’em. Like, if there’s gonna be three verses, I’ll sing two and then I kind of live with them, and maybe that way I can think about how I wanna end the song and how I wanna change it up.

“I’m at a point now… When I first used to do albums, I would do, like, 20 songs and then try to pick 12. Now I’m very difficult to find the music, so by the time I pick 12, those are the 12 songs. I’m not doing a whole bunch of recording just to find that… I know what I’m doing. I’m like that photographer that knows how to just wait until the right moment to take the picture: ‘Okay, that’s one… two.’ Versus the guy [who takes a bunch of pictures one after the other]. I don’t need to do that.

“So the ‘Merciless’ album is sounding pretty hard, though,” Ice-T added. “We named the motherfucker ‘Merciless’.”

At the 63rd annual Grammy Awards held in March 2021 in Los Angeles, BODY COUNT received a prestigious honor during the pre-telecast ceremony. They were awarded a Grammy in the coveted “Best Metal Performance” category. The nomination was for their powerful track “Bum-Rush,” featured on their album “Carnivore.” The recognition further solidified BODY COUNT‘s impact and contribution to the metal genre.
