The first offering from S.O.D. (Stormtroopers of Death) vocalist Billy Milano's M.O.D. (Methods of Destruction), U.S.A for M.O.D. follows the S.O.D. formula with precision. The music on this debut is similar to the N.Y. hardcore-influenced metal made famous by Anthrax (with whom M.O.D. had close ties). Milano doesn't seem to be taking things very seriously on this recording (or many others for that matter), which is a good thing, because otherwise his lyrics could be considered insensitive at best. What cannot be excused, however, is the fact that none of Milano's material is particularly funny. So much failed humor could potentially have the effect of fooling some listeners into thinking that songs like "A.I.D.S." and "Imported Society" are earnest attempts at political commentary -- coming from somewhere to the right of Darth Vader. OK, it can be conceded that "Ballad of Dio" isn't bad. But it's only a few seconds long. Besides, how difficult is it to lampoon such an obvious target?
