A Blast Of Christian Rock And Metal: TheBlast.FM
"The Blast" aka: "Blastrock" from TheBlast.FM. Christian Rock & Alternative and Christian Metal Music. Intense music that most FM Christian radio stations dare not play. Nobody does it like The Blast. Boldly Blast with us where no one has Blasted before!
The Blast now has a sister station called "The Blast Blender", that blends pop, rock, rap/hip hop, R&B and electronic dance music! Go to The Blast Blender at http://blender.theblast.fm (notice there are no www's!) and take a listen!
The Blast News & Music News Headlines
Saturday evenings (in the Western Hemisphere) now have a 7 hour block of specialty programming on The Blast:
5 PM-8 PM The Classic Alt/Rock Blast (Saturday expanded edition) (classic Christian modern rock and alternative)

9 PM-12 Midnight Blastmetal (new era metal, screamo and hardcore)

One thing The Blast is definitely known for is streaming choices. The Blast doesn't still stream like it's 1999. You're not stuck with 2 choices: 1 high bit rate and 1 low bit rate stream that sounds like you are listening underwater. Glug, glug, glug. Even TheBlast.FM's lowest bit rate (24k AAC+) stream sounds like FM quality.
As we begin to phase out mp3 streaming at The Blast, over the weekend we placed our highest quality stream, our 128k AAC+ stream, on the home page.
On any device that supports HTML5 in its browser (best choice: usually Firefox), here is an alternate way to get Blasted. Since our app is not supported yet on Android tablets, an alternative is needed. Since the Android operating system is so fractured, some apps work well on some devices and not as well on others. Watch this video and see how to listen to the high quality 80 kbps Ogg Vorbis Blast stream.
