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.

Stormlord - Supreme Art of War

Released on Last Episode Productions, Stormlord's debut album is out of print, but not particularly hard to find at a decent price if you look hard enough. These guys marry melodic black metal with the symphonic style - and there are a LOT of keyboards/synths here for those who find themselves to be complete allergic. It's a little clumsy at times, and the thin guitar tone doesn't add much needed bite where necessary - but there's still enough here to warrant investigation. Just don't expect a life affirming experience.
