What do you get when you combine Jamey Jasta, Danny Diablo, Frank 3 Gun (Ringworm, Hatebreed) and a bunch of other scumbags, assholes, drunks and losers?? Answer: ICEPICK, a side project band featuring all of the above. They put out an album back in 2006 or so, and I have no idea why you don’t hear about it more often because it is a fucking CLASSIC of ignorant moshcore. My favorite tracks:
“Real Recognizes Real” features guest vocals by Freddy Madball, Paul Bearer and none other than Ice Motherfuckin T, who drops the pretty much the best intro in the history of hardcore: “Icepick motherfucker, it’s goin down faggots! Run and grab your mama’s skirt- this is real! Ice T, Body Count, bitch!” But Ice doesn’t stop there, he follows it up with an equally amazing pre-breakdown callout at 2:55. “You look like a bunch of pussies, move your fuckin ass! Blood on the floor of the pit, carnage, every motherfuckin man for himself! This is Icepick, show me some fuckin action!”
This song is pretty sweet, although it bums me out that they wrote it for Andrei Arlovski, who was the UFC heavyweight champ at the time. But then he started fighting real competition instead of tomato cans like Justin Eilers and Paul Buentello, he was exposed for having the glassiest jaw this side of Jonathan Goulet (1000 MMA nerd points if you know who that is), and struggled to finish Z-level opponent Ray Lopez in his last outting. But I digress– the song itself is sick!
“Born To Crush You” is easily one of the hardest songs ever written– if it doesn’t make you want to kill someone when they drop “WHAT I FEEL IS BEYOND HATRED” before the breakdown/gang vocals at 2:18, you have no soul and/or are a fggt.
Why doesn’t think record get more love? Can anyone talk shit better than Ice T??? U MOSHING???
