“I think Body Count has released one of the most important albums of the year in terms of song topics. It’s not the first album to touch on them, after all in ‘Black Hoodie’ Ice-T claims he’s been rapping about police brutality for over 20 years. But, the world is in such dire straights that it still needs to hear these messages. Musically, ‘Bloodlust’ is solid. The influences from the likes of Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies stand out like a sore thumb, especially with a pretty decent ‘Raining Blood’ cover midway through the album. As a whole, the album features a simple formula to make a listener want to rock out that works in a way to keep you entertained because the lyrics are so profound. I have possibly found my favourite album of the year.
For fans of : Slayer, Public Enemy, Suicidal Tendencies, Rage Against The Machine
