M.O.D. - A blast from the past
M.O.D. recently stopped touring, but that doesn't mean that there will be no more livemusic available anymore. I still have tons of livematerial and other recordings to share!
In November I promised that I would upload an old M.O.D. liveshow, that I got directly from former drummer Tony Scaglione. Well, here it is; 'M.O.D. in Germany (1993)'. I haven't put a link on the downloadpage (yet), but this time you can download it directly from the newspage! Here are 12 tracks from an M.O.D. show from 1993 in one zip-file that you can download at once. Enjoy!
DOWNLOAD 'M.O.D. IN GERMANY'
[12 tracks, 43 Mb]
I wish you all a great 2009 and I hope you'll keep coming back to this site for more news, updates, music, etc.

Enough about S.O.D. & M.O.D.?
Yesterday Billy Milano spoke about his future plans on his message board. I think this info is really interesting for us fans of S.O.D. and M.O.D., so that's why I decided to put it here as well.
Billy Milano: "I will never do another S.O.D. record or tour. It was a great thing of the past but was a real let down when the reunion happened only for the sake of making the ANTHRAX name and camp money. M.O.D. has done it's last tour in the States and to be honest I am not so into the idea of touring in Europe to begin with. I may do one M.O.D. show for the South by South west convention in March at my bar but that is it. I have been working on my spoken word and comedy stuff but that is work in process.
As far as music is concerned, I am in a new band "Enough about the King" in Austin and have 4 songs recorded minus vocals. I should have sound bites up in mid to late december. It's not thrash or hardcore or even metal but has elements of everything I liked about all those styles. It's not a joke band and it's lyrics are not meant to be funny but they are expressive.
It won't be for everybody, not all M.O.D. and S.O.D. fans will like it and I'm sure some people here will out right hate it but no matter I want to do something other than cash in and drag bands I did 20 years ago through the mud. I actually thought about doing an S.O.D. cover band. I think it would actually be fun and fun aint such a bad thing now and again."
Well, I had hoped to see M.O.D. at least once here in Europe, but I guess that won't happen now. There were some European dates set for November, but these have been cancelled...
The fact that S.O.D. & M.O.D. won't record or tour anymore doesn't mean that this fansite will stop. I will continue to bring you news, add pictures and other interesting stuff, new downloads, interviews and more. You can expect a new liveshow very soon, that I got directly from Tony Scaglione (ex-Whiplash, ex-M.O.D.). See you soon!

Crab Society North | Download available
I thought it was time again to upload some 'new' material. Well, new? Not really... It's the Crab Society North Demo from 1985!!!
The Crab Society was originally Craig Setari and Dan Lilker. It was supposed to be extreme sounding, and they recorded it on a cheap tape deck with way too much input level so it sounded really distorted. It was called "Noise For Noise's Sake." Dan brought this tape with him to the S.O.D. recording session (for 'Speak English Or Die'), the others loved it and wanted to record some more like that.
This demo was recorded in the lounge of Pyramid Sound with a similar recording technique and was called The Crab Society North 'cos it was done upstate compared to the original that Craig and Dan Lilker did in NYC. It was never officially released and according to Dan, it's supposed to sound like that.
I've had several requests to upload this Crab Society North demo. And now it's finally available, for the first time on this website. I've had a copy of this tape for over 20 years and just converted the entire tape to 1 file.
Click here to go to the download page and download the Crab Society North demo!!!

M.O.D. to support MADBALL in the midwest in May
Billy wrote a message at his board about more upcoming dates in the U.S., a Japanese deal and M.O.D.'s first European tour in 14 years. Here it is....
"That's right folks. Things are starting to really cook here in the M.O.D. camp. We have a whole bunch of dates to be put up on our MySpace page and billymilano.com this coming Monday. We are supporting MADBALL on 8 shows for the beginning of May. Have just got our Japanese deal and tour possibilty for June and are proud to be announcing that M.O.D. will finally make it back to Europe booked by Marc Nickle of MAD booking in fall. It's the first time M.O.D. will be back in Europe in over 14 years.
But first we are putting together a tour package for July and August in the States again."

Bootlegs & trading
I've been trading liveshows for a couple of years now, and I found that it was getting more and more difficult to find what I wanted. I couldn't find new shows on CDR that I didn't have already. But recently I discovered a few nice items on DVD, so I decided to revamp my tradelist and go for it again!
Most S.O.D. & M.O.D. shows at the 'special items' section of my fansite, are shows that I got from other traders. These are all audiorecordings of liveshows, recorded mainly by members of the audience.
Shows on DVD
Recently I also got a few S.O.D. & M.O.D. shows on DVD. Also bootlegs, recorded by fans. And some of these DVD's are really awesome! If you want a copy of one of these shows and you have a recording that I might be interested in, feel free to contact me. Don't offer me money, I'm only interested in trading liveshows! You can find my tradelist here.
I just added 1 new track to the S.O.D. & M.O.D.-tributepage. It's a liveversion of 'United Forces', performed by Municipal Waste (013, Tilburg, Netherlands, February 11, 2008). Special thanks to Bram for sending me this song exclusively for this website.
JANUARY 5th, 2008:
Last year was a great year for fans of S.O.D. and M.O.D.! Megaforce finally released S.O.D.'s 'Rise Of The Infidels' and M.O.D. recorded and released a new album in 2007, called 'Red, White and Screwed'. For me personally this was even more special, because I contributed to the artwork of both releases...
So, now M.O.D. is active again, that means that they will tour in 2008 to promote their new album! Check this site for the latest news and dates about this upcoming tour!
M.O.D. - North American Tourdates 2008
A few days ago (December 26) I wrote that M.O.D. had found a new bassplayer (Tim "TANK" Casterline), now you can also find the tourdates for North America at this website. M.O.D. will tour from February 1st until April 5th of 2008. Let's hope they come to Europe too.
Tribute to S.O.D. - "Zittesje OnDeug" (Sittard's No-Goods)
Last December I uploaded 2 tracks of a Dutch S.O.D.-coverband called 'Z.O.D.' (Ztormtroopers Of Death). But they're not the only 'Z.O.D.' from The Netherlands.There's another tributeband from the same part of the country who also call themselves Z.O.D., which stands for 'Zittesje OnDeug'! They just released a promo (a demo) and they sent me one.
This promo was recorded at The Pit Studio, Weert in The Netherlands in November 2007. The funny thing about this promo is, is that Z.O.D. recorded some short songs that S.O.D. actually never recorded in the studio, but only played live (Momo, NOT, The Camel Boy, Ballad Of Kurt Cobain). The main part of this promo are covers from the 'Speak English Or Die' album. But Z.O.D. also recorded their own versions of 'Bigger Than The Devil' and 'Ready To Fight'. The entire CD contains 15 tracks and over 16 minutes of music. You'll find 4 tracks from this promo on my downloadpage. For more music or info go to: www.myspace.com/zod1996 or get.to/zod.
Special thanks to Jupke & Z.O.D.!!! Click here to go to the tributepage.
