Body Count "Bitch in the Pit"
Published Jun 03, 2014Whoo, boy. Where to begin with this one? As previously reported, Ice-T's head-banging Body Count project is back next week with the release of the long-in-the-works Manslaughter, and the group have now let loose yet another sneak preview in the form of a thrash track saluting co-ed moshing. The name of the tune is, well, "Bitch in the Pit."
The single solidifies itself around Slayer-esque guitar trills, mechanized speed metal beats and Ice T's growl about the dangers of the mosh pit. After describing the throng up front as a full contact, Mortal Kombat-worthy "killing floor," a gob-smacked T takes note of a Doc Martens-stomping woman "not afraid to bleed" in the pit.
"Every time we do a show, you're always staring at that mosh pit and there's usually that one girl in there or a couple of girls in the middle of the mosh pit and they're very interesting," Ice T explained of the song's genesis to Revolver. "So I was thinking this is a way I could dedicate a record to the girls that go to the rock concerts and go hard. It never fails. It's kinda like a true story. It's an homage to the girls that really get in the mosh pit with the guys."
His heart's in the right place, but you can wrap your brain around why this still seems surprising to the dude by giving the whip-cracker a stream down below. Manslaughter hits stores June 10 through Sumerian Records.
