I was delighted to finally interview Ciaran Culhane for my series on people who have left their mark on the Irish Metal Scene by producing incredible music. Ciaran has dedicated his life to music as a producer, sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist based in Limerick. He has built up a fantastic body of work, so it's fair to say innumerable bands and people have benefited from his work at gigs and studio settings. Ciaran along with John Real (aka Tall John) have run Bad Reputation since 2007. They have established Limericks credentials on the international metal scene with the famous Siege of Limerick festival and it acts as a feeder for all the other Bad Reputation gigs hosted in Dolans. Helping me trying to encapsulate Ciaran’s work, is guitarist Jack 'O Neill who enjoyed the benefit of Ciaran’s recording skills on the highly acclaimed Chaliceburner album by Coroza.
