Friday (June 29th), Ice-T's metal band Body Count played Tuska Open Air Metal Festival in Helsinki, Finland, and to open a set full of classic original cuts including "Cop Killer" and "There Goes the Neighborhood," the group whipped out the Slayer covers medley, of "Raining Blood" and "Postmortem," from its latest album, 2017's Bloodlust. Fans there got the extra treat of seeing Body Count joined by original Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo for the second of those two songs; Lombardo was on hand playing with his hardcore supergroup Dead Cross, alongside Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, etc.), Justin Pearson (the Locust, Retox) and Mike Crain (Retox). See fan-shot footage of the performance above, and a short clip, courtesy of Ice-T himself, below.
