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.

Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia

The debut album from the infamous Arcturus. Garm is one of my favourite vocalists, and here he is doing what he used to do best, screaming and crooning in equal measures. In the later re-issue of this album, he re-recorded his clean vocals - to me, they're still pretty good on this - but you can hear his progress as a vocalist over the years on the re-recordings for sure. Original US pressing on Century Black.
