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.

Fleshcrawl / Suffocation - Festering Thoughts From A Grave

This is another Raw Skull Recordz release, a label I seem to be buying almost every release from these days. This is a compilation of early Fleshcrawl material, including their material under their old name of Suffocation (thus, not a split with the US death metal legends). This release starts with earlier material (which is a whole lot more thrash oriented than the death metal they became known for as Fleshcrawl), but ends with the EP 'Lost In A Grave' which preceeded Fleshcrawl's debut album. I'm much more of a fan of the death metal material, as the thrash was lacking bite. Still, an interesting compilation that clearly shows a journey into death that the band followed. This comes with the Obi strip pictured, and hand-numbered with a limitation of 99 for the first copies only.
