Riff Police! Pull Over! #41: S.O.D. Vs Ghoul!

For Storm Troopers of Death, “Sargent D and the S.O.D.” is an anthem. It’s one of many cuts from the Supergroup’s 1985 debut album “Speak English or Die” which combines tongue in cheek humour with crossover Thrash to fantastic effect. The band features Scott Ian and Charlie Benante from Anthrax alongside former Anthrax and Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker and of course the vocals of Billy Milano, now in M.O.D. and while they may never do another album, the ones they did make are something special.

2011 saw Supergroup Ghoul drop full length “Transmission Zero”. The band, hailing from Oakland California, features members who are either in now or have played in at some point Impaled, Wolves In The Throne Room, Exhumed and more. Their cut “Destructor” is a basically a slowed down version of the Scott Ian riff. Influenced? Yes. It’s easily done.
