Is there any better way to cure the post paddy’s day hangover than with an ear full of the best Irish metal?Probably, but since you’ve taken the time to read this far you deserve a treat so give these tunes a spin!


Drainland:Essentially an Irish Neurosis, these guys have the sickest guitar tone in Ireland and their debut “And So Our Troubles Began” is a brilliant if extremely down-hearted piece of work.


Altar of Plagues:These black metallers have been causing quite the stir both at home and abroad, with their 2010 release “Tombs” receiving a great reception all around. Definitely a band to watch in 2011.


Dead Label:I played a gig with Dead Label about two years ago in Bakers Place in Limerick and they blew me away. For a 3 piece they sounded heavy as hell and the riffs had the crowd moshing like there was no tomorrow. These guys definitely deserve more attention and credit.


I’ll Eat Your Face:You all already know these guys. We just love having an excuse to put up one of their tracks!
