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.

Apocalypse - Apocalypse

Here is the debut album from Swiss thrashers Apocalypse. I preferred the cover to the artwork on the LP version personally, although this one wasn't bad I guess - just a bit more OTT comic-y. Anyhow, the music is pretty damn good for any thrash fan - it was recorded in the prime of thrash, before big nasty death metal became flavour of the month. This is the Under One Flag pressing of it. Lots of bootlegs of this around, but no bootlegger has managed to copy the ingrained text you can see on the clear plastic inner ring stating 'Compact Disc MPO France 09' - perhaps labels need to start doing this more often to curb bootleggers?
