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.

Sabbat (UK) - Mourning Has Broken

Well, here is Sabbat's third and final album, and only without vocalist Martin Walkyier who'd unceremoniously left for Skyclad. I've labelled it as thrash, but it takes a tangible step away from the thrashiness of their earlier stuff, almost into a more Trad and Power style at times. Needless to say, after the bad press this album got, it's been pretty much dis-owned by the remaining band members to this day, and was missed out entirely in the recent re-issues of their Walkyier era releases. Thus, all that remains in history to date is this original pressing on Noise records from 1991.
