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.

Cemetery - Enter The Gate (Discography 91-93)

Among the many bands named Cemetery nestles these German death metallers who were to release their debut album 'Enter the Gate' on West Virginia Records (a label whose CDs are pretty sought after by collectors these days). Shortly before it was released, their drummer left, and the label went bankrupt - so the album ended up never getting an official release on CD. Spanish label Memento Mori (who are one of my favourite labels these days) has compiled their entire discography onto a beautiful double CD set, which includes the album and demo material to boot. Considering the material on display (particularly the album itself) it's a shame these guys aren't mentioned in the same breath as German greats such as Morgoth and Fleshcrawl. Well worth checking out!
