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.

R.I.P Cliff

Apparently today is the 25th Anniversary of the tragic death of former Metallica bass monster Cliff Burton. 25 years is a long time, I was 7 years old. A lot has happened in those years, but the memories of this guy still live on. I think that alone proves that he was a visionary of the metal world not only by using a bass guitar in ways that not many had done previously, but for the fact that he loved music. In fact, he lived music, and that shone through in his playing. Much respect, and R.I.P.
