    A combination of rap themes and heavy metal sound all led by rapper Ice-T. Having no previous experience with the band I was a little worried that it would end up being more rap and hip-hop then real metal. Thankfully I was mistaken. "Body Count" drops one of the heaviest metal albums of late, and one of the best albums of the year.

Definitely an album for any metal fan. Expand

    Body Count's Manslaughter is without a doubt the best album of the year. Body Count successfully mashes Thrash Metal with Hardcore Punk as well as a little hip hop. Ice T may be 56 years old but he is more energetic than most people half his age. There are just too many manufactured pop acts these days. Most rock has turned into soft, indie alternative pop garbage. It's nice to see a bandBody Count's Manslaughter is without a doubt the best album of the year.

It's nice to see a band like Body Count rocking out and not giving a dam about current music trends and conforming to them. If you are looking for aggressive, in your face, carnivorous, heavy, high energy music, then you really need to listen to this album. Expand

    This isn't for the weak-hearted or easily offended. But Body Count are definitely raucous fun. [28 Jun 2014, p.53]

    Pure metal it ain’t. Pure fun, it sure is.

    There’s nothing as incendiary here as that year’s "Cop Killer," but Manslaughter does feature the band’s smartest musical leap in decades: evolving from its original sloppy mix of thrash and punk to lean, contemporary extreme metal.
