I must admit this release hit me out of nowhere. I hadn't heard any hype for it then just stumbled across T's podcast where they debuted the first "single"(I use that term loosely) which I loved and loved even more after seeing the video. BC albums have always been a mixed bag to me. Moments of greatness and moments that kind of have you scratch your head. At 56 I don't know what Ice T is out to prove but I am glad he is doing it. If you ask me this is Body Counts most consistent album front to back. I'm quite sure he didn't have to do this so I admire the mans passion. I won't do a song by song review here because it's still sinking in but after a few listens the album flows well and it's heavy. Some dark lyrics and heavy subject matter, and some songs that are just fun. Out the gate I'd say this is my favorite BC album. I'll let it sink in a few more listens but from the start I really like it. It's heavy, aggressive, and the sounds like the BC of old. Really makes up for the last album and is right up there with the best stuff they ever have done. I enjoyed it. I hope all the other Body Count fans do too. Thanks Ice for bringin the band back for another round. This metal lover appreciates it.

Album is brutal from start to finish.Body Count never disappoints , Cop Killer is classic & Violent Demise has always been my favorite BC disc in the catalog but Manslaughter has energy & power not seen in the other albums a rejuvenated fresh feel that hits like a Barrett .50cal. Caution:Not for soft hearted or weak minded individuals!!!

I rarely write reviews, an album really needs to be worth it. My style of heavy metal is more on the traditional side; Judas Priest, Maiden, Dio, and countless others. I had heard of Body Count before, listened to a few songs but never bought an album...until now. First I heard Talk S*** Get Shot, and I thought it was a great song. Second came Bitch in a Pit, and again a very good song. And lastly came out 99 Problems the rock mix, and I was sold. I needed to buy this album, and boy was this a good thing. The album is great from start to finish, very heavy and brutal, with great guitar playing and lyrics. I actually rarely listen to lyrics during a song but with this album it's a must. I'm ashamed this album only sold 3900 copies during its first week of sales in the States. Ice-T is absolutely right on Pop Bubble (which is a great song!) and I congratulate him for not selling out. No matter how much this album ultimately sells, trust me if you like heavy music, whatever style, this album is an incredible listen. Highly recommended and I hope Ice-T and his group will continue writing music even though the buying public are ignoring such a great group. Congrats!

Back to the basics, No gloss, no slick production. Just the guys going off and doing what they know.
The Suicidal Tendencies cover is hilarious, Ice rewrote the the 3 versus to a 2014 sign of the times, talking about his wife messing with him while he plays XBOX, Some jerk-off Internet Customer Service guy, and a Vegan that won't leave him alone while he eats a ham sandwich for lunch.
If you liked old school, raw sounding metal, this is for you.

The new Body Count is amazing with no weak tracks on the new cd. The Production work is raw with no protool.

I am not the demographic for - 63, white, female. But I still like the heavy slam Body Count delivers. Ice T is MAD and I can relate. It's a little too shouty for me, but I like his sentiment backed by a slammin' band!

Well, how about that? Body Count releases a new album! And it's very good! I think I speak for a handful od folks when I say that I had assumed we'd seen the last of Body Count. With Ice-T's television gig, the death of three of the band members, and....ahem...Murder4Hire, it seems that Body Count had run it's course.
But lookee here!! I was aware of this album a month or two before it's release, but the news certainly surprised me. Naturally, I was excited having purchased the first Body Count album back in middle school, and every album they released since. But once the excitement passed, I gotta admit I started feeling a little uncertain about how this album would sound. Murder4Hire really didn't exactly give me a stiffy-and that's not because the songs were bad, it was the horrible mix/production. So, that being my last impression of Body Count, I was a bit leery.
Well, we can all relax now(at least I can), because Body Count are back, focused, recharged, reteamed, and really good. Manslaughter is what we were hoping for. Think Violent Demise-an album I think most fans hold in high regard-only better. Like the first album, you got a mix of the serious, the silly(There's a sequel to Voodoo!!), and the serious-but-kinda-ends-up-being-silly. It's heavy, it's mixed well(at least much better than Murder4Hire), and there's some really catchy stuff. A few minor filler-ish tunes, but that's nothing because they aren't really BAD, per se. There's a bit more rapping here than on previous albums, but done in such a way that I can't see even the most rap hating metalhead complaining much(maybe with 99 Problems).
My minor quibble is that the song Pop Bubble(which is a cool song) has guest vocals by the Hatebreed vocalist. I don't care for Hatebreed, that sound or that vocal style. But that's all just personal taste anyway.
So, if you're a fan, you can rejoice because Body Count are definitely back in the house. I think the younger folks would definitely get a kick out of this and should give it a try as well. It's Thumbs Up for me!

Love all the tracks on this album the musicianship is exemplary and I love the riffs! Also, Ice-T tells it like it is no BS, had me chuckling on a few of the tracks. This is one of the realest albums out their right now!

It's been a while since Ice has hit back on the musical tip, largely abandoning rap after his last solo disc "The Seventh Sin" went virtually unnoticed. Look, the man has his tv gig, likes to play on the Xbox and manage the career of his wife or whatever, so if that's where he's at these days, then we can just watch when he was making movies and replay the old albums a few times over. Perhaps not content to let BC rest with the questionable "Murder 4 Hire" and maybe more healed from the loss of bandmates, he leads the charge here as BC comes roaring back. Ice has always had a very insightful and prominent sense of humor and that's on full display here, though it never stops this things from hitting and hitting and never letting up (aside from the song 99 Problems appearing twice). This is probably right around Violent Demise, though maybe not to that exact level, as that thing was a force unto itself. Call it 2nd best in the catalog and one of the best things to come out at all in 2014.

i like the first body count cd. B.C manslaughter is the best by far every song is a hit
including the suicidal tendencies cover song they did with body count's own song wrtting making a new version of the song
i'm a metal head from way back i love metal i also enjoy body count. there is something for everyone with this new manslaughter cd
all great songs i recommend it to true metal heads. it has a very good vibe fast tempo and interesting it has S.O.D M.O.D hardcore feel
mixed with speed metal thrash. i can't stop listening to it. value for money i give it five stars well deserved. enjoy
