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

    Myself and Evan have a brilliant chat with one the the nicest guys in the Scottish Metal Scene Finnbar Connell, drummer of Below The Neck from Inverness and co-ordinator/promoter at Broken Foundation Collective. Finnbar gives us an fantastic insight into the scene where he is from, how the band formed and what to expect from Below The Neck during the remainder 2022. Having recently completed a tour with Evan's band Worn Out in UK, it was a pleasure to witness first hand the blossoming bromance between these two and as you can imagine there is plenty of great stories to back up another reason why we have some many of our Scottish Metal brethren on the show.

    Mark Morrissey: Paranoid Beast Promotions, Cork, talks about the beasts historic impact and final roar!

    Mark Morrissey: Paranoid Beast Promotions, Cork, talks about the beasts historic impact and final roar!

    Myself and Howard sit down with Mark Morrissey one half of the legendary Paranoid Beast Promotions. Mark and Con Doyle joined forces five years ago to create an amazing scene for live Metal music in Cork. They steadily grew their brand by hosting some incredible gigs firstly in the Poor Relation before finding their spiritual home in Fred Zeppelins. In between those memorable years; Cyprus Avenue was the venue for the amazing 'Monolith' festivals where the best international Metal bands mixed with their Irish counterparts and also An Spailpín Fanach which hosted the fantastic 'Ritual of the Evil Eye' festivals. Paranoid Beast were also behind a seven series compilation of the best in Irish Metal and created an independent record label to help with releases from Cork acts Partholón & Coroza. There are many stories to go through on this interview and once again I want to thank both Con, Mark and their incredible team that helped them throughout the years, they have a huge amount of audio recordings, video footage and photos to revisit so hopefully we'll see the fruition of these in time to come. Their story is now part of the rich legacy of the Irish Metal Scene and their contribution to the Cork Metal Scene is immense. Long live The Paranoid Beast!

    Alex Da Costa (Vocals) & Junior Afrifa (Guitars) of progressive Metal band Lock Horns.

    It was a pleasure to welcome Alex Da Costa (Vocals) & Junior Afrifa (Guitars) of Lock Horns. We have a great chat about the history of the band, playing Bloodstock & The Siege, working on the follow up to the critically acclaimed 'Molon Labe' and of course many other topics were discussed as the lads settled into the interview. Lock Horns next date is an appearance at the Templemore Metal Festival on June the 4th and hopefully we'll see some more dates announced in 2022 even though the four piece are currently finishing off songs for their sophomore release, which they assured me is going to be as heavy as f#ck!
    Band Members:
    Alex Da Costa - Vocals
    Junior Afrifa - Guitars

    Jake Wallace (Elder Druid/Dark Arts Promotions) updates us on the Druid album, solo projects & future plans.

    Myself and Danielle had a really entertaining chat with the talented Jake Wallace guitarist of Elder Druid about the yet to be released 'Carcosa' album. It's fair to say they had some delays with it and Jake still won't put a date on the actual release. We discuss their incredible performance at The Siege of Limerick festival and some upcoming gigs that Jake is promoting through his Dark Arts Promo page. I bought 'Lustre of the Dark' Jakes solo debut album, which certainly caused me to appreciate the brilliant musicianship of his work & arrangements. Jake does all the piano & acoustic guitar arrangements, focusing on tones of melancholy, ethereal soundscapes and contemplative ambience. It was a pleasure to have Jake on and be sure to check out all his stuff on the links below. As always please hit that 'SUBSCRIBE' button and thanks for supporting the show. Richie.

    The Metal Cell Forums. Join myself, Danielle, Evan and Joe as we talk about the Metal Scene, talk about bands and discuss topics related to our favourite music....METAL! We had a cracking episode of The Metal Cell Forums this week and a lot of rabbit holes explored in relation to Myspace. We discuss the effect it had on Metal bands, fans and many other things it may have influenced. We also talk about how the Russian invasion of Ukraine has affected both their Metal scenes. Music wise I play a track from Voodoo Chief and there's updates from Joe and Evan in relation to @gamabombthrash & @wornoutnoise. As always thanks for your support and please 'SUBSCRIBE' to the show if you haven't already.

    Brigantia: Dave Gleeson, Neill Nevin & Mick Carey of Doom Merchants Brigantia.

    I had a great chat with Dave Gleeson (Guitar/Vocals), Neill Nevin (Bass) & Mick Carey (Guitar) of purveyors of Doom, Brigantia. John Clarke (Drums) and Dave have been playing together and putting out demos since 1994, however in early 2000 the addition of Neill on bass finally put the band on the path they still tread on today. Brigantia became a four piece when Mick Carey joined giving the band the forward momentum they needed to expand their sound and record the brilliant 'Midnight' EP in 2020, recorded by their mate Ciaran Culhane. We cover that along with some fantastic stories and future plans for the band. Definitely an episode that will live long in the memory and it was great sharing some beers with the lads!
