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.

Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky

Well, here is a piece of black metal history. This is the original white disc first pressing of Darkthrone's 'A Blaze in the Northern Sky' on Peaceville Records, limited to the very first run of 3,000 units. This was Darkthrone's first foray into the world of black metal and their 2nd album overall (if you don't count their shelved 2nd album 'Goatlord', which only saw the light of day years later). An icy shard of 2nd wave black metal which helped to spawn a million clones.
