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.

Ceremonial Oath - Carpet

Ceremonial Oath are likely know to fans of the Swedish melodeath scene for featuring what were to become future members of such luminaries as In Flames, Hammerfall and Tiamat. Their recently re-issued (thanks to Century Media) debut is excellent in my opinion, but this is the bands 2nd album, which isn't quite as good as their evil sounding debut (this has way more melody in my opinion). With that said, this was still better than a large percentage of the dross which was churning out of Gothenburg and the like at the time of its release in 1995. At time of writing, this is still out of print. An original pressing on Black Sun Records.
