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.

Nocturn - Estranged Dimensions

Another long awaited re-issue on Dark Symphonies here. Dutch death/thrashers Nocturn with their only album 'Estranged Dimensions'. Originally issued on the long dissolved Old World Records' in 1991, this had been long out of print before Dark Symphonies did the right thing and aired it once more earlier this year for whomever seeks out such beautiful underground gems... and a gem this really is. Similarities abound of Mercyless or Protector, with a rabid, rasping sound - this is definitely one to dig in deep on if you've not come across it before. Comes with an OBI strip.
