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 are abound. 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.

Ascended - Temple of Dark Offerings


So after two posts from strictly Christian metal bands, to prove I've not turned into a rabid religious nut - here comes Ascended. One of the most badass modern death metal bands who ended far too soon (they never even got to release a full length unfortunately). This is the bands EP, 'Temple of Dark Offerings', which recalls some of the finest Scandinavian death metal you care to mention (particularly Finnish bands like Convulse). An original CD pressing on tiny US label Enucleation, who went the way of the dodo a few years back. Seek this out.

    2. Been looking for this for ages. I held off too long when it came out and missed it. Great score you finding it second hand at Amazon. I check from time to time, and ebay, but no luck yet.
