Bigger than the Devil is the second album by crossover thrash band Stormtroopers of Death (S.O.D.). The album was released in May 1999 on the Nuclear Blast label. Its cover design is based on Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast and its title is a play on words on The Beatles member John Lennon proclaiming The Beatles were "bigger (more popular) than Jesus Christ".


Subsequent releases have included both the entire Seasoning the Obese EP -- incorporating both tracks "Seasoning the Obese" and "Raise Your Sword" -- as well as the "Ballad of the Scorpions" (originally released simply as "Rock You Like a Hurricane" on the Scorpions Tribute Album), bringing the total number of tracks to 28.

"Seasoning the Obese" is a reference to the Slayer song/album Seasons in the Abyss, whereas "Celtic Frosted Flakes" is a reference to the Swiss extreme metal band Celtic Frost.

The Intro/Outro riff used for the song "Aren't You Hungry?" (which is a cover of M.O.D.) is the same of the Anthrax's song "Imitation of Life", of the album Among the Living.
