Body Count To Collaborate With Former Evanescence Guitarist

BODY COUNT, the metal band fronted by legendary rapper Ice T, are slated to contribute a new song to the upcoming "Resident Evil 2" soundtrack. The as-yet-untitled track will apparently be a collaboration between the group and a seemingly unlikely writing partner — former EVANESCENCE guitarist Ben Moody. "We're going to do a song on the new 'Resident Evil 2', and Ben Moody is going to co-produce the song with me," BODY COUNT guitarist Ernie C revealed in an interview with 411Mania.com. "He's going to write a song with BODY COUNT. It sounds weird, but it's a great hard rock record, so he's writing us on [the] 'Resident Evil' [soundtrack]. I met him, he's a really cool guy, he wants to work with us, so we're going to do 'Resident Evil', and that'll be the first song. And I know that's a big achievement — that'll be a big deal."

In the same interview, Ernie spoke about a possible musical direction for the group's long-awaited follow-up to 1997's "Violent Demise: The Last Days", tentatively due next year through an as-yet-undetermined label. "It probably will be a little heavier and a little darker," he said. "We want to do things like work with the detuned guitars and the sludgy sound. We want to make it a little grindy. I know something I want to do, personally, is put some more guitar solos in there. That's something that's missing from a lot of hard rock and metal nowadays. You have some great players, but a lot of them do just rhythm, and they're great at it, but no one really does solos anymore. People don't understand that that's how a guitar player expresses himself. Those are his emotions coming out of that, and it's been missing. So I think I want to bring the old feeling of guitar playing back and combine it with the newer, heavier style."
