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.

Benighted Leams - Caliginous Romantic Myth / Astral Tenebrion

Time to revisit obscurity here, with Alex Kurtagic's solo project Benighted Leams first two albums, released on his own label. Alex Kurtagic ran the great underground black metal label Supernal Music, but has seemingly gone AWOL from music in recent years. The music on offer here is pretty shaky at times, but it's reassuringly cavernous and howling - the heart is there. Could've done with organic drums too, as the drum machine is a little iffy. He went on to release a couple more albums after these which are still in print.
