Episode 1 – Icelandic Black Metal


This is the inaugural episode of the Celtic Frosty podcast. I don’t have an actual microphone, so the vocals were recorded using a pair of Apple earbuds (woof). But this show is all about the music, so I hope you will forgive the roughness around the edges.

Episode 1 focuses on the rising black metal scene in Iceland.
