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.

Agalloch - Of Stone, Wind & Pillor / Grey E.P / White E.P

These E.Ps went out of print pretty quickly, probably because Agalloch seem to have an insane following these days and there's always a crazy clamour for their limited EP material in particular. The White & Grey EPs were limited to 2,000 units and 1,000 units respectively, but I'm not certain about the limitation of the 'Of Stone, Wind & Pillor' EP - I think it could've been 2,500, but don't quote me on that. The White & Grey EPs feature dreamy, folky music (with the Grey in particular featuring an ambient remix track), whereas 'Of Stone..' features more of their embryonic black metal roots. Original pressings on The End Records, Vendulus and Vendulus respectively.
