Olympus Athens   |  

Ender's Game Audio Banner

Stuck in traffic? Doing the dishes? Working out? Doing something else that requires your hands and eyes to be otherwise occupied? Sure, you could listen to the new Judas Priest again, but why not switch it up with some knowledge, a bit of romance, a smidgen of mystery, or terrorizing horror? Put down the book you can’t put down, and press play.

Below are some featured excerpts from titles such as Ender’s Game, The Walking Dead, and more, with descriptions from Macmillan Audio and some of the best audiobook narration I have ever heard. The publisher will be at this weekend’s Comic-Con International in San Diego.

We Got It All On ‘UHF’: “Weird Al” Yankovic’s Crazed Cult Classic Comedy Turns 25
BAADASSSSS!   |  

UHF

In the early 1980′s “Weird Al” Yankovic sold millions of albums and on occasion infuriated a famous musician or two with his quotable (and often superior) parodies of the most popular songs of the day. He made countless appearances on hit late night talk shows and MTV, and as his fan base grew Yankovic’s music began to make its way onto the rare movie soundtrack (the title track from his 1985 release Dare to Be Stupid received a prominent placement in the following year’s Transformers: The Movie).

Short of writing his autobiography and inventing the Internet years before anyone else, the only obstacle preventing Yankovic from becoming the King of All Media (eat it Stern) was his very own big screen comedy motion picture.

Massive Metal Monday: Armored Saint ‘March Of The Saint’
Ides Bergen   |  

Armored Saint Band Photo

Here with the title track of their 1984 debut album, March of the Saint, is Los Angeles’s Armored Saint. Check out the video here below of the band performing the song live on Headbangers Ball.

Some of you may recognize the singer John Bush, who would later go on to replace Joey Belladonna in Anthrax for most of the 1990s. Armored Saint broke up during this time, but in 1999, Belladonna would return to Anthrax and Bush and the rest of Armored Saint reunited. Both bands remain active to this day.

This Massive Metal Monday is dedicated to original Armored Saint guitarist Dave Prichard, who succumbed to Leukemia in 1990 at the age of 26.

Black Metal Friday: Venom ‘Black Metal’
Ides Bergen   |  

Venom band photos 1980s

Last week I gave you the documentary Black Metal Satanica as a primer for the genre. For this weeks installment of Black Metal Friday, we examine the origin of the genre’s name. Here with the title track of their second album, Black Metal, is the English band Venom.

While technically more on the punk/metal side of the spectrum, this album and song contain the basic DNA of what would morph into the genre of black metal. Frenetic speed, the vocal stylings of singer Cronos and the imagery glorifying Satan were all to be adopted along with the phrase “black metal” by the next wave of extreme bands to follow. The first true example of the black metal sound would surface the following year with Bathory’s first album, which we will explore next week. Until then, horns up and enjoy the song that spawned a genre.
