Former SEPULTURA and current SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY frontman Max Cavalera will make a guest appearance on "Bloodlust", the upcoming album from BODY COUNT, the metal band fronted by hip-hop legend, actor and director Ice-T. Max's vocals will be heard in a song called "All Love Is Lost", according to a new tweet from Ice-T.
Due in 2017 via Century Media Records, "Bloodlust" is being recorded with producer Will Putney (MISS MAY I, UPON A BURNING BODY), who also helmed BODY COUNT's last effort, "Manslaughter".
Ice-T said: "With our last album, 'Manslaughter', we tested the waters and got a great response from the fans and critics. Now it's time to go kill it and make a more aggressive album and keep the BODY COUNT style intact.
"Will Putney is like a member of the band and has an excellent ear. He's a great producer because he captures the true essence of our band's sound. Once we are done writing the song, it's his job to step in and make it sound better. He helps move the record in the right direction.
"Once the record's done, we're going to shoot a lot of music videos and perform spot-dates on certain tests, etc."
"Manslaughter" sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 102 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on June 10, 2014 via Sumerian.
BODY COUNT's current lineup includes guitarist Juan Garcia (a.k.a. Juan Of The Dead; AGENT STEEL, EVILDEAD), who made his live debut with the group in November 2013 at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas.
