The originators of Rap Metal are back. ICE-T and his band are as angry as ever on their 7th studio album, “CARNIVORE”, which will be released on March 6th, 2020.
Coinciding with their 30th anniversary as a band, pre-orders for all formats will start on January 10th, 2020.
The band’s second album for Century Media Records continues the path of its uncompromising and critically acclaimed predecessors, “Bloodlust” (2017) and “Manslaughter” (2014), in pairing ICE-T’s angry and socio-critical lyrics with thick guitar riffs and nods to metal and hardcore greats like Slayer, Metallica, Pantera, Suicidal Tendencies and Rage Against The Machine.
The detailed cover design was created by award winning Polish artist Zbigniew M. Bielak, who the band met on their 2017 European tour, and who is well respected in the metal community for his album covers for Ghost, Mayhem, Deicide and Paradise Lost among others.
