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.

Dark Funeral - Where Shadows Forever Reign

Long running Swedes Dark Funeral here with their latest album from 2016, in it's limited Slipsleeve Digipak pressing. I've said it before, but these guys got lumped in with the whole Norsecore/washing machine metal thing, which is unfair so far as I'm concerned. Although never dazzling me or blowing me into next week, they consistently produce solid, orthodox Scandinavian black metal with gusto. Also, although they weren't the first to do so, the album unfurls into an upside down crucifix - naturally. Cheesier than a tramp's cock, you say? Yes - but it still had a smile creeping across my face when I opened it.
