Terrified (album)

Terrified is the seventh album by American heavy metal band Quiet Riot. It is the band's first album in five years, marks the return of singer Kevin DuBrow after his firing in 1987, it is bassist Kenny Hillery's only studio album with the band, drummer Bobby Rondinelli plays on several songs. Many of the album's songs were featured in Charles Band's movie Dollman vs. Demonic Toys, with the album itself being released on Moonstone Records, the soundtrack offshoot of Band's film company Full Moon Entertainment; the song "Itchycoo Park" is a cover of the Small Faces' single from 1967. This was not the first time the band had covered a Small Faces song, they had done covers of their music on their first two albums, which featured Randy Rhoads; this is the first Quiet Riot album released internationally not to feature the production work of Spencer Proffer. In 1994, the album won the American Indie Music Award for the Heavy Metal category. Although the band have recorded another six studio albums following Terrified, the band's last non-promotional single was issued from this album.

In Germany, the band's cover of the "Itchycoo Park" was issued as a CD single via Concrete, with distribution by Edel. Concrete was a project of Edel; the single, which featured the album track "Rude Boy" as the b-side, was not a commercial success. Additionally, in February 1993, the band issued the one-track promotional single "Little Angel" in America, released by Moonstone Records; the single featured a picture CD of an topless woman, a custom printed back insert. The album was released by Moonstone Records on cassette in America only. In Scandinavia it was issued on CD via Mega Records. In Japan the album was issued via Alfa Records, Inc as a CD, the only version of the album to feature the exclusive bonus track "Wishing Well" - a cover of the song performed by English rock group Free, taken from their 1972 album Heartbreaker. In 1994, Fonomusic would issue Terrified on CD in Spain. In 2002, Arena Records re-issued the album in Germany under the opening track title "Cold Day in Hell"; the CD release featured new artwork of the line-up of the time, including bassist Rudy Sarzo, although he was not a member of the band when Terrified was recorded.

Pilosocereus robinii

Pilosocereus robinii is a species of cactus known by the common name Key tree-cactus. It is native to the Florida Keys in the United States, it occurs in Western Cuba and the Northern Bahamas. It has been erroneously reported from Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Mexico, it is a rare species, threatened by the loss of its habitat. It is a federally listed endangered species of the United States; this is a large cactus growing erect with many parallel or spreading branches. It may become a tree up to 10 m tall; the stem is green in color with a blue tinge when young and has 9 to 13 ribs. The areoles have up to 31 spines each; the spines are no more than a centimeter long. The bell-shaped flower is 5–6 cm long; the outer tepals are greenish with brownish midstripes and the inner tepals are white. The flower has a scent similar to garlic, it contains a sweet nectar. The taxonomy of the species and other Pilosocereus has only been cleared recently; this species was included in the description of Pilosocereus polygonus.

This cactus grows in upland tropical hardwood hammocks on coral substrates. It sometimes grows on sparsely vegetated coral rock and just above the high tide mark. Storm surges and sea level rise may inundate its shoreline habitat and increase the salinity beyond the tolerable range for the cactus. Other threats to the species include the destruction of its habitat during development. Populations on the Upper and Lower Matecumbe Keys have been eliminated due to residential development. Development leads to habitat fragmentation. Hurricanes are a threat to the cactus because the winds can break cactus branches or bring down taller vegetation, causing injury; as of 2009 there are seven known populations of this plant in Florida, located on four of the Florida Keys.
