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.

Paralysis - Patrons of the Dark

Another long lost US death metal band from the early 90s here, and what do you know, they released this one album before disappearing into obscurity. This is nice basic death metal, nothing flashy, no flourishes, just grimy death served up on a steaming platter of charred remains. An original pressing on Grindcore Records.
