The Metal Cell Podcast

By Richard Duhig

The Metal Cell sets out to promote Irish Metal by talking to the bands, promoters and crucially the fans of this great genre. I hope to interview as many people as possible involved in the Irish Metal scene from those that were born in the 60's,70's, and 80's up to the teenagers now who are banging out the riffs and landing on 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.
