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.

Merciless - The Treasures Within / Unbound

Two albums from one of the very earliest blasts of extremity to make it out of Sweden. Merciless were renowned for their no nonsense deathly thrashing approach, with their debut album 'The Awakening' being the first to sign on Euronymous' Deathlike Silence label way back when. Both these albums are essential in my opinion, with their later self titled fourth album not quite recapturing the magic they had early on. These are original CD pressings on Active Records, and No Fashion Records respectively.
