Came across this video on YouTube earlier. I haven't followed M.O.D. in years (I've heard nothing past Gross Misconduct). Maybe I should catch up on them? It used to be pretty funny stuff...lol

Youtube: show

Agreed. Very tepid, lethargic hardcore influenced metal. Strange for a guy who was put on the map by his involvement with an album notable primarily for being fast as fuck. Hasn't tried to recapture that at all since then, which seems a bit strange. In interviews about the history of New York hardcore, he comes off as somewhat bitter about not being more renowned in the scene. Lately he has also greatly dialed back his "I lean right - IN YOUR FACE!" vibe that used to permeate his website. Guess it doesn't come off as well in the Trump era? Anyway, seems like a fun guy to party with, but the trailer sounds as lame as anything else he's put out in the last 20 years.

I saw them live at the Milwaukee Metalfest and Milano was hilarious.

Do they change up the music in the live performance?

Remember when Billy Milano did vocals for that Mastery album?

I have heard MOD but honestly I didn't remember their songs that well. I just remember that it was during the Bush years and Milano as soon as he grabbed the mike started telling the crowd to all give it up for W and praising him from the stage. That was a VERY hostile crowd to W, and it just made me laugh. Almost seemed like Andy Kaufman-level trolling.

Looks like July 7, 2017 is the release date per the video. No real audio sample in this one. Just Billy thanking everyone involved with making the album.

Don't think anything Milano does now will be as fun as his first album with SOD. This looks pretty cool still though

Meh. "Gross Misconduct" is where it ended for me.

Same here. Since I've found out about this new album I've checked out some of the material since Gross Misconduct...It's not that great. He seems to have lost track of the humor that made those early albums funny IMO. The material seems to be Billy's attempt at ranting about politics and he loses track of the crossover thrash and goes more of a punk direction. Either way, I'll probably check this out just out of curiosity and the fact he says it'll be the last M.O.D. album. He appears to be happy with the new album and it seems he's sticking to the political theme with it but hopefully he gets back to that early style of the first couple albums.

This sounds like the hardcore version of Chris Holmes' "Born Work Die"

The S.O.D. record had a couple of fun songs on it, all that followed...well, I won't queue up to listen to this.

Man, I read the lyrics to some of the songs from M.O.D.'s last album, and it's ten times worse than the last Havok album, holy shit.

Waiting for a song about the GAY FROGS on this one.

Like S.O.D. had spectacular lyrics? Speak English or Die has such a deep meaning. Please, Billy is just being Billy and I think he probably thought that was funny.

S.O.D.'s lyrics were jokey as shit. I'm not sure the ones I posted were.

Because porno mags and bongs aren't funny? I'm reading it as Billy's attempt to be funny. It hardly screams like the latest Havok album. Some of the other late era M.O.D. has some more serious political lyrics, but even those have humor to them. I guess it's all in how you interpret them. Regardless, the late era stuff isn't like those first couple albums and I doubt the new will be either, but I'm going to check this out because I've lost track of these guys over the years. Bubble butt is just such a classic...lol

Yeah it's pretty unexciting, but they've had worse covers.
