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.

Dawn - Nær Sólen Gar Niþer For Evogher / Sorgh på Svarte Vingar Fløgh / Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy)

I absolutely adore Dawn, they are one of my all-time favourite Swedish black/death metal bands, particularly for their amazing final album 'Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy)'. First is the bands first album 'Nær Sólen Gar Niþer For Evogher' in it's original first pressing (note the original band logo, represses matched the logo on the bands later releases). Secondly, the bands intermediate E.P 'Sorgh på Svarte Vingar Fløgh', and finally their 2nd and best album 'Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy)' - all original pressings on Necropolis Records and out of print.


  1. I also adore the "Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy)". According to metal-archives the band is Active, true?

    1. Apparently so, yeah - no news on what the word is on new material though...

  2. I agree, Dawn is a great band. I like their whole discography.
