August 26th, 2021 | 47 mins 55 secs
It was a pleasure to finally get to chat with Jason Christy (Drums) of Words That Burn. The band had just come back from Bloodstock 2021 after playing a blistering set to a huge crowd on the New Blood Stage. I was interested to see how their terrific new song "Den of Lions" went down and to see if Jason had any updates in relation to the new songs they had been working on during lockdown.

Episode 134: Thorsten Schaeben & Pat O'Regan from Veil of Sound webzine - lifting the veil from underground music.
August 12th, 2021 | 1 hr 4 mins
Episode 134 is a brilliant one with Veil of Sound - lifting the veil from underground music! I was delighted to welcome Thorsten Schaeben and Pat O'Regan from @veil_of_sound webzine. When reading a review on Veil of Sound you are immediately aware how accurately the lads convey their feelings for the musical piece. The intimate tracing of the songs composition and careful analysing of its parts will lead you into the final few sentences that will imprint in the readers memory and help to decide whether to buy the album or not.
Episode 133: Bicurious: Gavin (Drums) & Taran (Guitars) talk about their brilliant new album (re)constructed and future plans.
August 5th, 2021 | 56 mins 34 secs
It was a pleasure to welcome Gavin (Drums) & Taran (Drums) of Bicurious. The duo certainly have been making waves in the alternative rock scene with some terrific single releases and crushing live performances. The nine tracks of their new release (re)constructed thematically follows a timeline of events in Gavin's and Taran's life, which included a psychotic episode, fatherhood and a period of uncertainty that nearly saw the band split up.

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.
