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.

Crimson Relic - Purgatory's Reign

Forming from the ashes of Divine Eve (after their initial split in the early 90s), Crimson Relic appeared to release this one full length album, before quickly disappearing into obscurity themselves not long after. Pretty much ignored back when it was released, the age of the internet has allowed this to now receive the praise it was most definitely due - a fine example of doomy death metal for sure. This is an original press on Radiation Records, a short lived offshoot of Nuclear Blast Records.
