Body Count is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1990. The group is fronted by rapper/actor “ICE-T”, who co-founded the group with lead guitarist Ernie C. out of their interest in heavy metal music. Their controversial self-titled debut album was released on Sire Records in 1992; this contained the controversial song “Cop Killer” that remained on the album on early pressings, but was removed later by ICE T himself as he felt the controversy was over-shadowing the music. The group has reached international acclaim over the past 25 years, and is highly regarded as one of the founding groups that created the “Rap-Metal” sound (e.g. Anthrax, Linkin Park, Korn, etc.). Body count has recorded a total of 5 albums and is releasing it’s highly anticipated 6th studio record titled “Blood Lust” in early 2017. The current line-up has been together for many years and includes the following members: ICE-T , Ernie C., Vincent Price (Vince Dennis), Ill Will, Juan of the Dead, and Sean E Sean (r.i.p. D-Roc, Beatmaster V, and Moosman). In January 2017 the full band became official D&A Guitar Gear artists, Vince Dennis (bass and production) having already been on the D&A artist roster as a solo musician beginning the previous year. We at D&A Guitar Gear are absolutely proud to have this iconic group of musicians as part of the D&A family.
