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.

Rites of Thy Degringolade - The Caryatid / Totality

The first two albums from Canadian black/death metal outfit Rites of Thy Degringolade. I love these guy's work, particularly for the fact that they just sound so... well.. 'wrong'. Raging riffage, disembodied voices, screaming, and blasting - this is quite the anomaly when it comes to matching the band up to an easy reference point, particularly their debut album 'The Caryatid', which was recorded solely by main man Paulus Kressman. 'Totality' has more of a streamlined, less 'out there' sound, but still with an excellent biting edge, so check them out if you like something a little twisted and dark.
