Massive Metal Monday: “Blood On Your Money” By Cobra
Ides Bergen   |  

Cobra Band Photo

Cobra was a band that had a minor hit in the early days of MTV with their driving anthem “Blood On Your Money” from their one and only album, 1983′s First Strike. The band was notable because their lineup included former Krokus guitarist Mandy Meyer and velvet-voiced singer Jimi Jamison, who, only a year later, would go on to become the lead singer of the 80′s mega hit-machine Survivor. (Jamison also wrote and sang the theme song of the cheesy 90′s TV show Baywatch.)

First Strike is a classic of melodic metal and is sadly underrated. Jimi Jamison left this world after suffering a heart attack just last month at the age of 63. This Massive Metal Monday is dedicated to his memory.

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

Arriving in Bristol, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) discover something very wrong: the TARDIS exterior is shrinking, and people in the area are disappearing. The mystery becomes potentially deadly, as the two are separated, with the Doctor left in the TARDIS, and Clara left outside to play the role of the Doctor instead…

During TARDISblend 80, we examine the fabulous dimensional concept delivered to Doctor Who in this episode by writer Jamie Mathieson; a tale that will be remembered as a highlight of Series 8.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

Black Metal Friday: “Freezing Moon” By Mayhem

Mayhem Band Photo

Mayhem is the most infamous and, arguably, the most influential band of the second wave of black metal. The band’s debut album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, is widely considered to be one of the most influential recordings that the genre has ever produced. It was an album seven years in the making. Songwriting started in 1987 and by the time the record hit shelves in 1994 two of the band’s most pivotal members would be dead.

Listen to one of the tracks from the album, “Freezing Moon,” here below.

Thrashback Thursday: “Beyond the Gates of Doom” by Exciter

Exciter Band Photo

Since we looked at Helix for this week’s Massive Metal Monday, I thought we would keep with the Canadian theme for Thrashback Thursday.

Exciter was one of the very first speed metal bands in the world and played a pivotal role in the establishment of the thrash genre. Formed in 1978 in Ottawa, Canada, the band has endured for over 35 years with only a small, but very rabid cult following.

Listen to Exciter here below.

Long Live the Loud was the third album by Exciter and was released in 1985. Here with “Beyond the Gates of Doom,” the fifth track from that classic album, are the fathers of Canadian thrash, Exciter.
