Watch Ice-T, Body Count’s Savage Cover of Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’
Metal outfit streamed impromptu performance live on Periscope
Ice-TÂ and Body Count marked their live debut on Periscope with a viciously faithfulÂ and spur-of-the-momentÂ cover of Slayer’s “Raining Blood.”
The video was streamed live last June 29th, openingÂ with the band sitting around the studio, pondering what song to playÂ when Ice-T casually suggests the thrash outfit’s 1986 classic.
Body Count launched into the song’s menacing intro while Ice-T sauntered around the room. HeÂ unleashed a diabolical growl that matchedÂ the heavy cacophony behind him. By the end he wasÂ air-guitaring along with the indelible “Raining Blood” riff.
Body Count are reportedly in the studio working on a new album that will see release in 2017. It will mark the band’s first since 2014’s Manslaughter.
Ice-T is also set toÂ headline the upcoming Art of Rap Festival TourÂ alongside Public Enemy,Â Naughty By Nature, Mobb Deep, EPMD, the Sugarhill Gang and Kurtis Blow. The trek begins July 16th in Dallas and wraps August 6th in Detroit.
