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.

Ancient - Svartalvheim

Another album which has been featured previously on this blog (if you have a search, the 2nd edition on Listenable is also here for your perusal). This version however, is the very first pressing on Listenable with the fire-breathing artwork and different layout, disc & backsleeve. Ancient aren't mentioned much in terms of the very best of Norwegian BM, with this album being released in 94, they kinda missed the first real big fleet of albums from the 2nd wave. Still, this is an enjoyable enough album as it is, probably their strongest material overall.
