I'm a life long SOD fan. After all they were one of the bands I got into that got me into hardcore. I first heard 'speak English or die' when I was 15 on the side of a dubbed cassete (DRI or crumbsuckers may had been on the other side). Despite the fact that Billy Milano was an utter cock and the questionable lyrics (were they really being ironic?), it was some of the heaviest music ever and still remains so to this very day. There's nothing I can think of that's harder sounding.
So the aptly named FOAD records (I haven't heard that term since I was a kid) have put out this LP which contains both demos (if you call them that). They're rough sounding and if it wasn't anyone important like SOD then you would dismiss this as utter crap probably but as it stands it's an important musical doccument of an era long passed by.
FOAD have outdone themselves in the packaging department too. This thing looks great and comes in a lush gatefold sleeve and on picture disc. Normally I wouldn't care less about picture discs as they sound like shit but to be honest it doesn't make much difference here and you have to admit it looks pretty sweet and face it -picture discs are so 80's -and they are very METAL!!!!
