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.

Ildjarn - Forest Poetry

Ildjarn's possibly best known album, Forest Poetry showcases his fizzing, harsh black metal (as opposed to their more ambient, synth efforts). Ildjarn are the antithesis of Dimmu Borgir - this isn't about fancy bells and whistles, it's about repeatedly smashing your face into mush with the thick end of a tree trunk - and it does that perfectly. An almost impenetrable wave of hissing distortion and hateful vocals. An original 1996 pressing on Norse League Productions.
