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.

Demonic - Lead Us Into Darkness / The Empire Of Agony

Norwegian black metal here, though not from one of their most famous exports. Demonic formed in 1992 too (under the moniker Demonic Manifestation), meaning they were around in plenty of time to make a splash for the 2nd wave explosion. But, alas - they failed to make much of an impact. A shame really, as there's some good stuff to be found in their material, featuring that renowned Scandinavian sparkle in abundance. Both releases here (their 1995 EP, and their only full length from 1997) released on US label Necropolis Records, who went tits up around a decade ago now.
