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.

Demoniac - Stormblade / The Fire and the Wind

After featuring this band's black metal debut earlier in this very blog, here are albums 2 and 3 from Demoniac, the band who's 6 stringers were to go on and form Dragonheart (who later became power metallers Dragonforce). These albums had a much more power/heavy edge to them compared to the debut, but still retained the raspy black metal vocals. There are some interesting set pieces to be heard on each of these albums, but if you've ever wondered what Dragonforce would sound like if they beefed themselves up a bit and got a screamer on the mic, here's your best bet! By the way, straining your eyes to work out the artwork of their final album 'The Fire & The Wind'? Well, it's the guitarist Sam shagging a woman doggy style, whilst enjoying a beer and flicking the bird, naturally. What else could it be?! Hahaha! Check out Metal Archives for the uncensored pic that Osmose just wouldn't allow! Original pressings on Evil Omen, and Osmose Records respectively.
