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.

Gates of Ishtar - A Bloodred Path / The Dawn of Flames / At Dusk and Forever

Haters of melodeath, turn away now. Although not hailing from Gothenburg (they're from Lulea) Gates of Ishtar had a good thing going in my opinion pushing that delectable melodeath sound to breaking point without getting overly sugary. But as was the way for many bands, they got overlooked by most in the huge wave of melodeath which swept through Sweden in the early to mid 90s. Original pressings on CD on Spinefarm, Invasion and Invasion respectively.
