This year, I’ve been writing fortnightly posts about bands that are grouped by their band name’s starting letter. It started with the A list and logically ended with the Z list—that’s generally how the alphabet starts and ends. The entire series is conveniently grouped under this 26 playlists tag group.… The Heavy Alphabet
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. If I was to follow that same approach for this final playlist, the result would be Zzzzzz.
Yep. Six bands. That’s how many Z bands I could come up with—with a little help from friends. This will be one sleepy little article.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘Z’ fortnight
Excellent, exceptional and exceedingly brilliant are all words that do not start with the letter X. Finding descriptive words that start with an X is a difficult task.
So is finding band names starting with the letter X. But here we are.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘X’ fortnight
My last entry in this fortnightly series of alphabet-driven playlists of heavy/metal bands was rather late. To make up for that and to get back on track (in a manner of speaking), I thought I’d add the W entry one day early. Mixing things up like a boss!… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘W’ fortnight
Very, very late. That’s how I’d describe this fortnight’s entry for the alphabet playlist of metal. I guess in my case, V is not for virtuous.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘V’ fortnight
Uh oh. That starts with the letter U and also perfectly depicts my feelings for how the rest of this year’s article series on an alphabet themed playlist is likely to pan out. How many bands can start with the letters U, V, W, X, Y or Z?
Not too many I suspect. For now, let’s see how many U bands I managed to find. This could be a short and simple read for you. Or for U.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘U’ fortnight
I’ll just get straight to it. Tool finally released a new album. So, yes … Tool is in my fortnightly series of bands that start with the same letter. But, and I know it’s poor form to start a sentence with the word but, is the track that’s chosen for Tool from the latest album? Well, you’re going to have to read a few more paragraphs to find out.
Or scroll down to the list. You could always do that.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘T’ fortnight
This fortnight’s entry in the alphabet playlist of metal is a cracker. It seems that the letter S is another good one when it comes to selecting band names in the rock or metal genres. This means good things for my drives to and from work for the next two weeks.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘S’ fortnight
When I’m playing Scrabble, I generally feel pretty good about picking up the letter R. There will be plenty of words I’ll be able to make with that letter. It seems metal and rock bands don’t play a lot of Scrabble, because there were not as many popular bands as I’d have thought that start with the letter R.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘R’ fortnight
