The Metal Cell Podcast

Podcast dedicated to promoting the Irish Metal Scene by talking to Metal bands, Irish Metal fans and supporting Irish Metal gigs.

About the show

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

    Our Metal Scene is one we are immensely proud of in Ireland but apart from the U.K does anyone else know about it? I have decided to find out and try to spread the word on the bands we have here by talking to similar bands elsewhere in the world. In a series of Zoom interviews, which will see me talk to Metal bands all over in the globe, I need to establish a report, give them a Spotify Irish Metal playlist and hope that a bond of metal shall be formed.

    Bailey Junior of Scapegoat TV made a short film on mental health and suicide called Suffer. He is heavily involved in the Metal Community in Scotland and asked for assistance in making the short from friends of his who soon contributed to the soundtrack of the movie. I asked Tom of Zhora, Evan of Worn Out and Shane Horan, Photographer and Psychotherapist to come on the show to discuss Baileys film and Zhora's Demotivator. What followed was an interesting and insight talk on mental health in our metal community.

    Elder Druid came out of 2019 as one of the best Doom/Metal bands in Ireland. They launched their critically acclaimed Golgotha to a jammed packed Voodoo Room in Belfast in January, tour dates were booked and a vinyl pressing done of 250 albums; so it would be fair to say the lads were ready to take it to the next level until their momentum suddenly ground to a halt with the COV-19 pandemic.
