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.

Celtic Frost - Cold Lake

Ha ha ha ha... just check out that back cover photo. Yes, Cold Lake will go down in metal history as one of the most ill-advised musical adventures ever conjured in a brain fart. If we didn't already know it meant 'Gabriel', the way Tom G. Warrior posed and postured on the back of this album would make you seriously think the 'G' stood for 'Glam'. Forgetting for a moment that the music was some sort of cheese metal nightmare, I'm still proud of having this in my collection. Let's face it, Mr Warrior is unlikely to want it back in print any time soon to remind people he was once a wooly woofter with massive teased hair.

  1. Shitty album, but really hard to find nowadays. I've seen some crappy bootlegs around lately
