Hi my name is Richie and welcome to the Metal Cell. The aim of this show is to talk about all things metal, especially "Irish Metal." By meeting with the bands, the promoters, the fans or anybody involved in metal scene in Ireland .
I am going to reach out to as many people as possible to hear their stories, how they got into metal and what were their favourite bands and gigs. I'm going to build up a history of what it was like to be a metal fan in Ireland back in the 70's 80's and 90's, and compare it to what it is like today.
I want to create a bigger metal community that will go to more gigs and support the metal scene. By doing that, we get more bands into our towns or cities and it helps both the promoters and the touring bands. The terrific merchandise that is available out there at the moment is a testament to the time people put into this scene...they need our support. Its an exciting time in Ireland if you're a metal fan, the quality is there, the bands that released material last year were inspiring to us all, so I'll be talking to a good few of those bands, and also the bands that are going into studios to record to get some insights into what it takes to make an album.
