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.

Kazjurol - Dance Tarantella

600th post, another milestone which I never thought I'd see. Cheers! Whether these Swedes meant to mis-spell Tarantula (seeing as said spider appears on the cover), or whether they were referring to a dance popular in Italy, I'll never know. I'm opting for the former. Anyhow, these guys could thrash with the best of them, and this was their one and only full length album, standing proud amongst a slew of demos and EPs between 1987-1991. This is an original Active Records pressing from 1990, long out of print but one to track down for the thrashers.


  1. Bought this one a while ago in Prestine state for 4€. indeed an awesome Thrash piece.


  2. Tarantella is related with the spider Tarantula. Read more on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarantella
