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.

Immolation - Atonement

There are certain bands (admittedly, a lot of bands) where I will buy their every release without reading any press or researching, just because basing solely off my love for their previous efforts, I figure that each new album is a no brainer each time. Immolation are 100% one of those bands. Their 1991 debut 'Dawn of Possession' is chalked up as one of the very first death metal albums I bought (and heard, for that matter), and since then, their vision and accomplishments have nary left me wanting. What we have here is Immolation once more giving a masterclass of death metal, with their wonky riffage, weird arrangements, equal mix of blasting and brooding is all accompanied by the usual bags of atmosphere which billow throughout their sound. Yes, I'm a fanboy, but so should you be. Seek and be destroyed!
