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.

Crusher - Corporal Punishment

Despite hailing from the land of frogs legs and Champagne, Crusher have a very much English feel about their death metal to me. With that said, there is quite a varied mix of deathly sounds here, a lot of stolen ideas and many many nods to oh-so-many death metal band, so it's hard to pinpoint outside the realms of 'early DM period Napalm Death', Benediction and Bolt Thrower styled musings at the best of times, but I guess you can heard tidbits of US death metal too if you listen attentively. Behind the lame cover art (hmm, smeary period blood sunset!), there is an above average death metal album waiting to be heard. Noise Records pressing, from the early 90s.
