The Metal Cell Podcast

Irelands Premier Metal Music Podcast.

About the show

Irelands Premier Metal Music Podcast. The Metal Cell Podcast sets out to promote the Irish Metal Scene by talking to the bands, promoters, artists and fans of this musical genre. I hope to interview as many generations as possible involved in the Irish Metal community from those who create the music, design the artwork, promote the gigs or simply fans of the music itself. It's one of the most exciting times ever to be a Metal fan in Ireland with so many home grown and international metal bands touring our cities and releasing incredible music. This Podcast has become a solid link in communicating our voices throughout the world wide Metal community. The bonds forged in the Metal Scene are strong, loyal and lasting. Friendships created that traverse oceans and continents linking us to Europe, the America's, The Far East and even into the Eastern Block. Thank you all for listening and for your support, Richie. #supportyourlocalmetalscene

    It was great to finally talk to Aaron 'O Neill and Eoghan Galligan of fuzzed out sludge merchants Slung from a Tree. The lads are based in Kerry/Limerick and have steadily been building up a large following over the years, blitzing fans up and down the country with their own brand of stoner/sludge riffs.

    It was great to catch up with Bones Holohan guitarist with Dread Sovereign who currently resides in Brussels. Bones spent most of his teens playing and touring with bands around Ireland. Never one to turn down the offer of an adventure, it's fair to say that the life of a touring musician certainly appealed to Bones. The interview has a nice few tales of life on the road, insights into the recording of the new album and a history of the band.

    When Dave Hynes (Vocals) & Jason Connelly (Drums) joined up to form Grave Sermon with Cory (bass), Mark (guitars) and Gavin (guitars) it was to answer the call to make nasty, filthy Death Metal. The release of Whitewashed Tomb in 2019 got plenty of air play however Gavin soon left and was replaced by the excellent Greg Clarke of Parhelia. Grave Sermon have serious plans for 2021 and beyond so enjoy the show and don't forget to subscribe to the YouTube channel. Thanks for your support, Richie.
