The Metal Cell Podcast

Richard Duhig

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 read less

Episode 214: Dusk Amadeus: The Scottish Doomsters are working on their debut release. Ewan (Guitars/Backing Vocals) and Zack (Drums) give us 3 exclusive tracks to listen to and talk future plans for the band.
It was a pleasure to welcome Ewan (Guitars/Backing Vocals) and Zack (Drums) of Scottish Doomsters, Dusk Amadeus onto the podcast. The four piece which are completed by Sasha (Vocals/Guitars/Cow Bell) and Morris (Bass) certainly impressed me when I saw them opening 'The Crypt of the Riff' festival in Belfast last December. The band play this sublime blend of Doom, where the influences of Monolord get mixed with Mazzy Star (courtesy of Belfast born Sasha's vocals) and Dusk Amadeus emerges. Ewan fills me in on how the band started, despite a few line up changes, Dusk Amadeus have now settled into a formidable unit with the latest member Zack taking over on drum duties. Hopefully we'll see them on our green shores again in 2023 to promote the launch of their album, tentatively penciled in for April/May. We get an exclusive taste of this album with the three tracks Dusk Amadeus gave me on the night. Be sure to show them some love, follow them on their socials and Spotify.

Episode 211: Nomadus: I welcome Fredy (L.Guitars/Vox), Neil (R.Guitars), Carl (Bass) & Brett (Drums) to talk about their blistering thrash infused debut 'Axis Primordial' Irish Metal Album of the Year.
It was a pleasure to welcome Fredy (L.Guitars/Vocals), Neil (R.Guitars), Carl (Bass) & Brett (Drums) of Nomadus on to the Podcast. When Nomadus unleashed their crushing thrash infused debut album 'Axis Primordial' on November 25, 2022, it was the album I always hoped they would make! With stellar performances from all the band members it quickly jumped up to number one on my album of the year playlist. But things were a lot different when I first met Fredy and Neil many moons ago on their first appearance at The Siege of Limerick. They seemed to have never ending problems with trying to get a settled line-up, until the addition of Carl on bass and later Brett on drums. All the pieces of the Nomadus puzzle finally fitted together with Josh over seeing the recording, mixing and mastering; 'Axis Primordial' is a nine-track pilgrimage through blistering riffs and ferocious vocals. On this episode we get a track by track run through of the album from Nomadus and a lookback over a hectic 2022 including an appearance at Bloodstock! Hope you enjoy the episode and please 'SUBSCRIBE' to the Metal Cell YouTube channel. Thanks Richie.
