Ice-T apparently has a rap metal band, and has for like 25 years. How the fuck did I not know this?
You must be a youngster, however, sometimes I forget about Ice-T's death metal band too, until I remember cop killer was a thing. They did suck though and I like Tee, but he does curse too much.
I'm 30 but I never really was into rap except for Eminem in like.... middle school, was it? and never paid attention to it beyond knowing the names of a few rappers. I always thought Cop Killer was just Ice-T, not Body Count. Never actually listened to it, obviously.
Lol it is weird that Tee had a death metal band in the first place though, that much is true. Do you remember Charleton Heston reading the lyrics of "cop killer" that time?
Very vaguely. I was 6 in 1992 so I'm almost certainly not remembering it from that time, but I recall it coming up in music documentaries throughout the years.
Yeah they would have that clip on VH1 all the time in those music shows they'd play in the mid and late 1990's. I remember when cop killer came out but I didn't know who the heck Heston was at that age.
Reinhard Flatischler's Megadrums is a percussion-jazz fusion ensemble which has worked with a number of famous percussionists like Zakir Hussain and Airto Moreira, but has not received much attention until recently, when their compilation The World is Full of Rhythms turned heads in the "audiophile" community. The album was so much feted that a vinyl pressing has been made. It is easy to fall in love with the album: it is very well sequenced and flow together marvelously. and the music, gentle drums and xylophone washes with mellow saxophone and flute, tickles the senses without challenging it.
This track is more of a mood painting, rather than an attempt to emulate the gong-and-chime music of Cambodia.
k.d. lang has a very good cover of this song, slightly changing the lyrics to make better sense. Indeed lang's would be my preferred version if not for the fact that she overheats towards the middle.
I heard this song sang a lot at church when I was a kid. Still brings me warm and happy memories every time I hear it, regardless of who is performing it.
