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.

Swallow The Sun - Songs From The North I, II & III (Box Set)

The latest triple album release from the bringers of much misery and gloom, Swallow the Sun. Part I sees the band in their usual form, mixing weeping melodies with their usual brand of heaviness, Part II sees them stripped back to acoustic instruments, tempering the sadness without the heavy, and Part III unleashes only the gloomy heaviness - being one of the heaviest pieces of work they've released. As individual albums it works better, as I struggle to take it double albums, let alone a damn triple album. But, no-one can deny the flow of consistent quality on offer here - as is the way with the vast majority of their works.
