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.

Extreme Noise Terror / Extreme Noise Terror

This is last year's self titled album from Extreme Noise Terror. After the tragic death of one of their vocalist Phil Vane, he was replaced in the band by former Gorerotted vocalist Ben McCrow for this release. I'm always slightly dubious when a band releases a self titled album so far into their career, as it often shows sign of stagnation or lacking ideas. This is definitely NOT so with this album. To me it seems that this was clearly a sign of intent of a return to the band's roots, with the album being packed with blasting bursts of song, rattling drums, strangled guitars and gnarled vocals bellowing over the top - just what the doctor ordered!
