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.

Wombbath - Lavatory EP

Coming up very quickly after their trudging death metal debut 'Internal Caustic Torments', Wombbath released this EP on an embryonic Napalm Records, musically showing a very different band indeed. That cover art... hmmm! On 'Lavatory', they pushed much harder towards the groove style, and came out much more in the vein of death & roll. However, the main issue I had (and still have, tbh) is the big change in vocal style too - the vocals suck ass on this release. I mean, they're seriously bad. Plainly, this CD is only worthy for posterity's sake to show just how bad a band going off the rails musically can go! Still, they returned after many years of not existing recently and returned to the sound they're more known for - thank fuck!
