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.

Meshuggah - The Violent Sleep of Reason

Meshuggah's latest album here, the creators (whether they like it or not) of 'djent', and all the bands that spawned in its name. I can't say I'm a huge fan of this onomatopoeic genre, but I do have a soft spot for Meshuggah themselves following them from their proggy, almost Metallica like beginnings. Twisted polyrhythms, bellowed growls and guitar's tuned so as to register on the Richter scale as is usual with these guys, with a killer production job that pushes it all in your face for a claustrophobic atmosphere.
