The Metal Cell Podcast

A Metal show dedicated to promoting and growing the Irish Metal Scene.

About the show

The Metal Cell Podcast sets out to promote the Metal Scene by talking to the bands, promoters, artists and crucially the fans of this great genre. I hope to interview as many people as possible involved in the Irish Metal community from those that were born in the 60's,70's, and 80's up to the current generation now, who are banging out the riffs and turning our heads. It's one of the most exciting times ever to be a Metal fan in Ireland and this Podcast will be reporting on it. Thanks Richie Le Faux.
