ICE T'S BODY COUNT AND VITAL REMAINS TO HEADLINE MILWAUKEE METALFEST XVII
MILWAUKEE - Body Count, the heavy metal band featuring rapper Ice-T that stirred up controversy in the early ‘90s with its song "Cop Killer," will headline the 17th Annual Milwaukee Metalfest along with death metal veterans Vital Remains, which now features Deicide vocalist Glenn Benton among its ranks.
The Metalfest will take place on Friday, July 25 and Saturday, July 26 at the U.S. Cellular Arena in Milwaukee.
Other headliners include revitalized New York death metal band Suffocation, Strapping Young Lad, the reunited cult band Repulsion, Enslaved, and M.O.D.
