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.

Vreid - Sólverv

Here we have the most recent album from the underated Vreid, 'Sólverv'. This is the limited edition digipak version on Indie Recordings, which as you can see comes with a free patch. As you might know, most of the band members started out their career in Windir, and after Valfar's death they went on to form Vreid. I remember their earlier albums had quick a stompy, rocking black metal edge. These days, they still rock, but their black metal is pretty melodic and filled with great songwriting and great musicianship, at times akin to early Satyricon. Well worth a look.
