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.

Ophthalamia - To Elishia / Dominion

Ophthalamia were a super group of sorts, featuring IT & All of Abruptum, Emil Nödtveidt (Swordmaster, and brother of Dissection's Jon) and Ole Öhman (Dissection). They played an at times avantgarde style of black metal with a creepy doomy atmosphere - orthodox black metal this is not. 'To Elishia' is a compilation of demo material and rehearsal tracks, and 'Dominion' is the bands final album - most of their other releases are still in print, and I think that these two are the only ones by them which are no longer in circulation. 'To Elishia' is an original pressing by Necropolis Records, and 'Dominion' is on the similarly defunct No Fashion Records.
