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.

Napalm - Cruel Tranquility

Dark Thrashers Napalm formed originally as Combat, but changed to Napalm when they signed to... err... Combat Records. This was the bands debut album from 1989 - they did release another album the year later, then kinda fell off the radar and split up. But come the year 2000, they reformed as Combat to release various new albums. Clear? Good. Haha. For me, they lacked a little aggression for my tastes, but there were still some great riffs and arrangements to be found. An original pressing on SPV/Steamhammer. Also, I love Ed Repka, but this isn't one of his best know cover works. Check out the opening track from the album here...
