MIKE PATTON Joins S.O.D. Members To Perform 'Speak Spanish Or Die' While In Quarantine

A month after sharing "quarantine versions" of the   STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH   songs   "March Of The S.O.D."   and   "Chromatic Death" , recorded with each member separated in their own homes,   Charlie Benante   ( ANTHRAX ),   Scott Ian   ( ANTHRAX ) and   Dan Lilker   ( NUCLEAR ASSAULT , ex- ANTHRAX ) have returned with another   S.O.D.   track,   "Speak English Or Die" , the lyrics of which have been switched up to   "Speak Spanish Or Die" . Joining the trio on vocals is   MR. BUNGLE   and   FAITH NO MORE   singer   Mike Patton , who previously performed the same track with   Ian   and ex- SLAYER   drummer   Dave Lombardo   at the   MR. BUNGLE   reunion shows in February.   Patton   makes an appearance in the accompanying video as " The Lonely Rager ," complete with cowboy hat and bandana mask.

STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH   (a.k.a.   S.O.D. ) was a satirical 1980s metal band which consisted of   Ian   (guitar),   Benante   (drums),   Lilker   (bass) and   M.O.D. 's   Billy Milano   (vocals).

STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH   are commonly credited as being among the first bands to fuse hardcore punk with thrash metal into a style sometimes called "crossover thrash." The track   "March Of The S.O.D."   from the group's debut LP,   "Speak English Or Die" , was the   "Headbangers Ball"   intro song for many years.

STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH   was formed shortly after   Ian   finished his guitar tracks on the   ANTHRAX   album   "Spreading The Disease" . He would draw pictures of the face of a character known as " Sargent D ," and the pictures would be accompanied by slogans such as "I'm not racist; I hate everyone" and "Speak English Or Die."   Ian   would then wrote lyrics about this character. He decided to form a hardcore band based on   Sargent D , so he recruited   Benante ,   Lilker   and   Milano .

The 30th-anniversary edition of   "Speak English Or Die"   was made available in November 2015 via   Megaforce . The set included the original album as well as the demo recordings from the pre- STROMTROOPERS OF DEATH   project   CRAB SOCIETY NORTH .
