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.

Protector - A Shedding of Skin

Germany's Protector's albums are pretty hard to come across, so I was super happy to find an original pressing of (arguably) their best album 'A Shedding of Skin' for a low price. Original C&C/Major first pressing from 1991 - so many bootlegs of this, it's not even funny.
