    Release Date:

    Who the hell are these guys? The ultimate metal/hardcore crossover? A comic book gone awry? A side project born out of utter boredom? Four guys that met at a bus stop? Or, are Charlie Benante, Scott Ian, Danny Lilker and Billy Milano really terrorists under the guise of "witty musicians", being controlled by great conspiratorial forces of the secret organization known as the Crab Society? Supposedly headed by the international criminal mastermind Harry Wu (just to whisper his name is to invite a world of pain to your doorstep!), the Crab Society has unleased S.O.D. every seven years since 1985 onto an unwitting public, spreading their message of evil throughout the world! Coincidence? I think not. Only you can decide.

    Lo, things of such great importance are revealed in this film as to shake the very foundations of our society! Be forewarned, this film will offend you, no doubt. With it`s brutal uncompromising music, politically incorrect humor, and total disregard for animal safety, S.O.D. has found a way to offend everyone. And if you are not offended, well then you`ve been brainwashed into One Of Them!

    This is their plan! My God man, at all costs, they must be stopped!

    S.O.D ( Stormtroopers Of Death ) are a metal/hardcore crossover band and were formed in 1985 by Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and drummer Charlie Benante. Joining them were former Anthrax bassist Danny Lilker and vocalist Billy Milano. They recorded an album, Speak English Or Die in just 3 days and it has since gone on to sell over a million copies worldwide. 7 years of inactivity later, the group reformed for a one-off gig in New York. 7 years later, they released a followup to SEOD: Bigger Then The Devil. This DVD focuses on the release of the album and the subsequent world tour.

    The majority of the footage is from a show at Chicago which is mixed in with footage from many other shows as well as other bits and pieces with the band.

    The picture is fairly good throughout. Some of the footage appears to have been shot on camcorder but the quality is not too bad. The sound is also a reasonably good mix.

    Extras include an audio commentary by guitarist Scott Ian and a bonus concert which can only be accessed via a secret code. The commentary is very funny and Scott basically makes fun of everything. He also explains the meaning of many of their songs since most of them have caused some controversy due to the subject matter. Well worth a listen.
    The bonus concert is an hour long and the quality of this is not very good.

    Overall, this is a pretty funny DVD. Recommended if you like this band, metal or bands who have a sense of humour.
