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.

Solstice (USA) - Pray

The 2nd album from 1995 by death/thrashing Americans Solstice. This saw the band lose original vocalist/guitarist Rob Barrett to Christian Rudes - but if you weren't aware of that you wouldn't necessarily notice due to the similarities in vocal style. Although it's a great album, I don't think it's as great as the bands great self titled debut album. Solstice reformed a few years back and released their third album in 2009 - looking to pick that up soon. An original pressing on Steamhammer Records.

  1. Do you have their first album? I am reissuing both albums in June and we are trying to get scan of the picture on the inside liner notes. my copy is water damaged and when i tried pulling apart to scan it tore the booklet/folder. Dennis' version doesn't have the picture in it. my email is tribunalrecords@aol.com if that helps. I have some other questions about your CD collection. very impressive, nice to see someone rival me. :)
