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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
After a bit of digging, I ended up with a decent list though. There’s certainly enough to keep me occupied on my drives to and from work. Thank goodness the Q playlist can be put to rest now.
Before I write another word, I need to say … this is a positive story. I love my Moniker Guitars custom Reedsdale guitar. I wish I had an opportunity to order another guitar from Moniker Guitars. Sadly, I can’t. Nobody can. Moniker Guitars is no more. This makes me lucky—I already have one.
P is for playlist. No, that’s a stupid way to start this entry to the alphabet playlist of metal. I know … Today’s episode is brought to you by the letter P. Nope. I’m pretty sure there’s a children’s television show that has done that before.
