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.

Catasexual Urge Motivation - The Encyclopedia of Serial Murders

Japan's Catasexual Urge Motivation (beautifully shortened to C.U.M by many) are certainly a different band to many you might've come across. Touches of Mortician mixed with the grime and sickness of just about any porno-grind band you'd care to mention, but with a dash of brilliance that sets them apart from the pack. Add in some crazy drum programming and insane guitar work, and there you have the long and short of it. This isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but if you're in the mood for blowing your brains out for an hour and a few seconds - this is an ideal candidate. Oh yeah, the artwork. Just what the fuck is going on there? Also, try reading the tracklisting on the back cover art and say goodbye to your retinas. Original 1st pressing on short-lived German label Deliria Records, which was limited to 500 copies. It was re-issued by Razorback Records years later, but with different artwork.
