Hear ICE-T rage on BODY COUNT's new song "Psychopath"

"I torture and kill and murder at will"

Body Count is once again in the house. Today (May 17th), Ice-T and his long-running metal project reintroduced themselves with a vicious new single called "Psychopath" that you're going to go nuts over.

The track marks the first official single from the band's upcoming Merciless album, which found Body Count reuniting in the studio with producer and Better Lovers/Fit For an Autopsy member Will Putney. As with the past few BC projects, "Psychopath" is a bombastically mosh-mangled take on modern metal, full of breakdown-heavy grooves and gnarled guitar work.

As for Ice, he's embodying the titular psychopath as a blade-swinging, rampaging maniac determined to "torture and kill and murder at will." The song also takes stock of serial killer infamy ("How morbid can fame be?"), while later going full splatterhouse with a mid-song revelry of chainsaw-induced death screams.

The FFAA connection continues on the bridge, where that band's Joe Bad goes berserk with an intimidating guest spot positioning himself as a certified "American Psycho." You can check it all out via the lyric video above.

A release date has yet to be pinned down for Merciless, but it will arrive via Century Media Records. The album follows 2020's Carnivore, which nabbed Body Count a Grammy for Best Metal Performance for standout cut "Bum-Rush."
