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.

Evoken - Shades of Night Descending

The debut demo from monolithic US Funereal doom/death crew Evoken here, in its 2nd available pressing on Adipocere Records. This pressing isn't always readily available at a good price, but the first press is extremely hard to find, being self released on Funereus Production (i.e, by the band themselves). Evoken turned into a crushing pillar of uncompromising doom, and although they got better as their career progressed, this still shows good signs of what was to come. Well worth checking on any of these guys material if you've not heard their stuff before.
