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.

Arckanum - Fran Marder / Kostogher / Kampen

These are the original first pressings of the first three albums of Swedish black metal legends Arckanum on Necropolis Records. The debut in particular was limited to 1,000 copies, and every other press afterwards had the same artwork, just in black and white (in fact, Necropolis themselves also did a repress a year later in black and white). Kostogher and Kampen were limited to 3,000 units each. One of the shining lights in Swedish black metal lore, everyone who hasn't heard this guys trio of brilliance certainly should.
