Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘Z’ fortnight

Back when I wrote the article for the M fortnight of this series, I started with Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm … which represented the number of M bands in the article as well as the tastiness of a playlist with that much variety.

Or scroll down to the list. You could always do that.
