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.

Jumpin' Jesus - The Art of Crucifying

One of the most inappropriately named metal bands in my opinion, these guys band name perhaps would've suited a jokey thrash or crossover band better. Anyhow, Germany's Jumpin' Jesus was far from that musically, these guys were all about the death metal, and they were pretty badass too as it goes. Varying levels of technicality and a thrashy edge made these guys stand out, it's just a shame they never stuck around for long after releasing this their single full length release. An original pressing on West Virginia Records/Morbid Music.
