“This Is Why We Ride”, the new video from BODY COUNT, the metal band fronted by hip-hop legend, actor and director Ice-T, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Treach (NAUGHTY BY NATURE).
“This Is Why We Ride” is taken from BODY COUNT‘s latest album, “Bloodlust”, which was released on March 31 via Century Media Records.
“Bloodlust” was recorded with producer Will Putney (MISS MAY I, UPON A BURNING BODY), who also helmed 2014’s “Manslaughter”. The CD features guest appearances by Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, SEPULTURA), MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe. The effort also contains BODY COUNT‘s medley of the SLAYER songs “Postmortem” and “Raining Blood”.
Ice-T told Revolver magazine about the “Bloodlust” album title: “Bloodlust is part of the human makeup. Murder is about as normal as love. It’s in our nature to want to get violent and kill, but we know there are consequences. That’s why we like violent movies, video games and combat sports. It’s in our DNA. It’s what we are.”
