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.

Thorns of the Carrion - The Gardens of Dead Winter

Here we have the 1994 debut album from Ohio's Thorns of the Carrion. These guys kicked out some rather tasty doom death with a really morose, funereal nature. The crushing riffage embraces acoustic interludes and violin parts closely to its heaving bosom, bringing to mind the likes of early My Dying Bride, coupled with the crushing nature of diSEMBOWELMENT et al. After this, they released a handful of EPs, and more further full length before calling it quits. This an original CD pressing on Wild Rags.
