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.

diSEMBOWELMENT - Transcendence Into The Peripheral

Everyone is likely to have heard of diSEMBOWELMENT at some point, especially if they're into doomy death metal. This was a shining light in the world of doom/death, and still stands the test of time to this day. Growly, oppressive and punishing, this is the first European pressing on Nuclear Blast (licensed from Relapse Records).


  1. Strange cover, bizzare mix of doom/death/grind but hey sounds great. I can't wait for their new CD (as Inverloch) coming out in April 16.

  2. 2nd favorite album of all time. Absolutely amazing. Simplistic, but hits all the right marks.
