S.O.D : Speak English or Die (1985)

Written and recorded in a week, S.O.D (Stormtroopers Of Death) were Billy Milano (M.O.D) Dan Lilker, (Nuclear Assault), Scott Ian and Charlie Benante (Anthrax) having a laugh but it became a cult release.  It was purposefully offensive and if it gets your undies in a twist then the joke's on you.  The sound is like hearing Nuclear Assault cover Anthrax with some M.O.D thrown in to keep it fresh, basically exactly what you’d expect given the talent involved.  It's a wonderful party album (if your parties are populated with people that like thrash music, or alternatively good for clearing a room if they don't).  ‘Songs’ range from 5 seconds to 2 mins 30 secs.
