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.

Alcest / Angmar - Aux funérailles du monde... / Tristesse hivernale

A nice black metal treat here, featuring split material from two French bands, with Alcest (a band who have a crazy following these days) and Angmar, a lesser known (but still great) crew from Caen. This was originally slated for a release of 3,000 copies, but due to copyright issues (supposedly) it was reduced to 500 hand numbered copies. It also comes with a sticker of each band logo. Pretty hard to find these days, and highly sought after due to the popularity of Alcest - coupled with the fact it has some pretty damn sweet material on it, makes for a winning combo for collectors.

  1. Lucky considering how underrated it is compared to the Alcest we know today.

    Ever thought about scanning the booklet online?
