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

    Luke (Guitars) & Keith (Drums) of Scottish riff lords Dog Tired. It was a pleasure to meet up with Luke and Keith again to talk about their fantastic single release, a hook driven, slab of heaviness called "Feast". The lads have a busy few weeks coming up with a Bloodstock appearance and two pre-Bloodstock gigs, so tasty new merch and of course the best part an update on new songs for an album further down the line.

    When Clang announced that a Irish heavy metal festival was being held in spring 2020 and it would feature several Metal headliners along with over 20 Irish metal bands on two stages in the National Stadium Dublin, everyone in the Irish Metal Scene started texting each other. The majority of people were fairly dubious about the whole thing and nobody knew who or what was behind Clang. It was therefore a pleasure to welcome Rob on the show to clear up the whole Clang drama and to cast aside some of the negativity aimed at the festival.

    It was a pleasure to welcome Keith Fay (Guitars/Vocals) of Irish Folk Metal legends Cruachan. They are considered one of the pioneers of folk metal along with UK based Skyclad and it was fascinating to hear Keith talk about how the whole scene evolved. Cruachan despite numerous line up changes are working on their ninth album and as an original founding member Keith gives us some great insights into the band, touring and favourite stories.

    Greyface certainly will shake up the Metal/Alternative scene in 2021, mainly due to the music and what their image conjures up. Like something out of a Tim Burton nightmare, their goth/macabre influences comfortably sit alongside Bowie during his Ziggy days, all of which are embellished by Greyfaces infectious music. Roy/Shaye (vocals) gives myself & Danielle an insight into how the band were formed and future plans.
