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.

Anthrax - For All Kings

Well, this the latest album from US thrashers Anthrax here, in limited digipak format with a bonus live EP. I, like many, love their early career, but I feel they'd gone off the boil a bit during their John Bush era. Since the return of Joey Belladonna to their ranks and the release of 'Worship Music' a few years back, I feel they've had a real resurgence in their sound. This album is pretty decent, never really crazy or 'metal thrashing mad', and filled plenty of sugary sing-along melodies (so kvlt patrol, look away now). For me, it's a solid effort, and as strong as you can expect from any of the big four these days.
