Irish Metal Roundup October 2019

Our monthly round up of the Irish heavy music scene.
Due to my new job banning phones (Thanks to my fellow millennial co workers that can’t live without them stuck to their damned hands…) I have very limited online time each day. I’ve had to create a new Facebook page that has no friends and only follows Irish metal pages to keep up to date now.
I think I’ve got all for the month? If not please let me know I’ll add them. All these will drop again in December… The new page will help me in a big way going forward though!
Seriously. I may be 40 and sound like an angry old man here. But why the fuck are people in their 20’s constantly glued to their damn phone? The screen is too small, typing is shit and it wrecks your neck looking at them…
Took my couple of minutes to do research away every few hours by looking at absolute shite instead of working… Cunts!!!

Anyway, this is October’s round up! Rush job this month as I’m very busy at the moment…


Dead Label – Dystopian Complex

Dead Label released their latest single/video ‘Dystopian Complex’. Their best track to date in my opinion. One of the hardest working bands in the Irish scene and growing internationally as a result!

Arjuna’s Eye – Amalgam

Cork based Arjuna’s Eye released their album ‘Amalgam’. Album of the year contender without absolute doubt! Absolute masterpiece! Progressive groove metal perfection!

Scathed – Compromise Me

Dublin based Scathed released their debut music video.
Video made by Olga Kuzmenko so a top job!

THVS – Fevers

The countries leading heavy pop band THVS released their new album ‘Fevers’.

Old Season – The Heathens Dance

Fornoth – Peace, Love and Death Metal

Dublin based Fornoth released their live LP ‘Peace, Love & Death Metal. Great LP!

That’s our round up for October. Again, if I missed anything I add it later.

Same next month.
