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.

Psychopath - Making the Transition

The debut (and only) album from US progressive death/thrash metallers Psychopath. Released on the long defunct C&C/Major Records, this was a tasty snap of proggy (but not always tight or technical) death metal with thrashy overtones, delivering a good blast into the ballbags. It doesn't matter that it's not polished or that the production isn't the greatest, it has a nice old school vibe with genuine riffage and that's good enough for me. Out of print, but not that hard to find for a decent price if you're patient. *Note* - The disc looks pink in the pic, whereas in reality it's a deep red - my scanner must've been having an off day!


  1. The almighty Psychopath is actually from the US, they were just on a German label.
