The Metal Cell Podcast

Episode 191: Drakonis: Madre Tortura (Lead Vocals) & Saul McMichael (Guitars/Backing Vocals) update us on the band, new material and future plans.

August 26th, 2022

It was a pleasure to welcome Saul McMichael & new singer Madre Tortura to the Metal Cell Podcast. Drakonis released an incredible debut album 'Blessed by Embers' in 2020 but the campaign trail for the album got swallowed up by the pandemic. Though their soul is steeped in Black Metal, Drakonis play a fluid version of it, embracing both melody, distorted guitars, blast beats and some tranquil sections which add to the theatre & storytelling aspect of the band. Saul talks about the impact that made on Drakonis and losing two members of the band. However in the murky waters of uncertainty, they found the jewel that is Madre Tortura, who added a new dynamic to the band along with new bassist Chris King. Drakonis have a busy few months ahead of them and the first big date is playing a 12th century church in Cork on 27th of August through Relapse Promotions. It will be the perfect setting to see the band in all it's glory. Hope you enjoy the episode and hit 'SUBSCRIBE' on The Metal Cell YouTube channel for more content like this. Thanks Richie.
