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.

Dethrone - Let The Day Begin

HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS! Let's hope 2014 is a good year for us all. What better way of kicking off 2014 than with a nice little rarity? Well, here we have Dethrone's debut album from 1989. Finnish thrash of a decent quality, with plenty of neck breaking tempos and a gritty outlook. However, the album is let down by a flat production job which is a shame. As it goes, this is one of the hardest albums to find on the Under One Flag label (for a decent price at least, it does appear on eBay from time to time). Worth a look for the thrash aficionados amongst you all! Gotta love that artwork too, reminds me of the old Fighting Fantasy game book covers I used to read as a kid.
