Welcome to Source of Steel - The Heavy Metal Museum. For the metal head who likes to own or collect physical CDs, Source of Steel is my website dedicated to the love of physical metal on shiny plastic discs. Micro-reviews, thoughts, pics of my own collection and random utterances galore. The site started out purely as a way of sharing my rarities to like-minded fans, but now (for longevity's sake more than anything) it is open to new physical metal music bits I've picked up, including new releases and other random shit.

At the Gates - Gardens of Grief

Whatever your opinion on At the Gates' later career path, you'd have to be a really snobby bastard not to enjoy their debut E.P/demo Gardens of Grief. This is the first issue on CD by Black Sun Records, in a slimline CD case. I get shivers every time I hear the version of 'All Life Ends' on this... it literally oozes evilness. A very much harder and gruffer vocal style by Tompa Lindberg also adds to the unholy tone of this album - love it.
