A Classic Metal Workout Playlist

For the last four months, I have been doing something different with my life.  Something that consumes quite a bit of time and energy.  It's working out regularly - mostly doing cardio and weight circuit training (I've written a bit about that on my main blog, Orexis Dianoētikē).  When my workload gets especially crazy, or if I get seriously sick, I might only get in 1 or 2 workouts in a week.  But most weeks I'm at the gym 5, and sometimes 6 days a week.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you've likely seen me post occasionally about the music I listen to when I exercise - all classic metal.  Occasionally, I'll listen to just one band or even one album.  But usually, what I'm listening to is my classic metal workout playlist, set to play randomly.  

Two days ago, I posted a screen shot of a bit of that playlist from my phone.  One of my fans said that he'd really like to see what else is in that playlist.  It's really a work in progress at this point, but I'm happy to share the song listing as I've set it up so far.  So, with no further ado, that's what I'm doing below - arranged by band.
