Kind of an extension of the Anthrax family, Stormtroopers Of Death–or S. O. D. for short–was essentially Anthrax members Scott Ian and Charlie Benante, along with former Anthrax member Dan Lilker on bass and Anthrax roadie Billy Milano handling the vocals. Their first album, Speak English Or Die, fused New York style Hardcore Punk with the burgeoning Thrash Metal that was emerging to bring us all an auditory assault on the senses that is guaranteed to give you a slipped disc, and piss a lot of people off with the lyrics that were deliberately written “never intended to be serious, just to piss people off.” A must-have in every metal head’s collection.

“March Of The S.O.D.”

“Bigger Than The Devil”

“Stand Up And Fight”
