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.

Loudblast - Original Album Classics

A bit of a strange set here, these Original Album Classic's series are usually a great way for major labels to cobble together classic artists albums in one bare bones set at a discount price, not really for putting together excellently obscure death/thrash bands albums like this. Anyhow, this was released by XIII Bis Records, the same label that released the bands more recent albums (I guess they had a license to release their earlier/out of print stuff). However, I'd like to have thought they'd have done a decent box set of these albums with extended booklets and write ups/reviews, exclusive photos etc, but instead they went down the budget route. Each album is in a cardboard slipcase, housed inside the main card case - no booklets or anything more. A shame, as the material on offer deserved much more.
