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.

Runemagick - The Supreme Force of Eternity / Enter the Realm of Death / Resurrection in Blood

Sweden's Runemagick here, with the unholy trilogy of albums which kickstarted their career. For those who haven't ventured near these guys before, definitely do. Some of the finest death metal you'll find, with a really doomy vibe. All original pressings on Century Media. Not impossible to find at a good price by any means, but currently out of print separately (there is however a 2 CD compilation album 'Dark Dead Earth' which compiles all three albums if you're so inclined).


  1. Ain't gonna lie. I'm insanely jealous you have SFoE in your collection. Still trying to find that album somewhere..

    1. I can probably find you a copy if you're interested. It's not that hard to come across.
