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.

Sabbat - ...for Satan and Sacrifice

Sabbat are a mainstay of the underground, not only being one of the longest running purveyors of extremity, but one of the most consistently high in quality material. Everyone should own at least one of their releases in my opinion. '...for Satan and Sacrifice' is their 1995 compilation featuring (then) new and re-recorded tracks, and as their CDs go, it's one of their most sought after (along with all their Evil Records CD releases). Good quality rabid black/thrash, as you would expect!

Miasma - Love Songs E.P.

The final release of the brilliant Austrians Miasma here, with an all too short EP 'Love Songs'. These guys were of course best known for their only full length album 'Changes' (also features on this very site, albeit the Napalm Records re-issue), which was an early nineties slice of badassery. Too short to warrant a recommendation to seek out (especially when taking into consideration the price it generally goes for these days on the likes of eBay and Discogs), but still a nice collectors piece none the less. Lethal Records.
