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.

Panic - Epidemic

Thrash metal here on Panic's debut album, Epidemic. This came out in 1991, when people started to care less about thrash, To be fair, the quality of the sub genre started to wane and water down to such an extent that less and less people were paying attention, with death metal being the new extreme. This is a great album though - it has a real Exodus-y vibe about it (not surprising that Gary Holt & Rick Hunolt produced the album, and even provide guest solo work). An original pressing on Metal Blade. Not particularly expensive to find if you're patient enough, but out of print none-the-less.
