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.

Brain Drill - Boundless Obscenity

The most recent (2016) release from US brutal/tech death crew Brain Drill. I only really dabble in this genre (Unique Leader is generally reliable, but a lot of it falls flat to my ears). When I find a band who has a hook or some meaty riffage rather than just relentless technical displays of guitar theatrics, I'll usually buy into it. Well, with Brain Drill, their riffs are practically solos - so I should pretty much hate this - haha! Well, I do love a ripping solo, and this album is pretty much choc full of glass splintering riffs, sparkling light speed passages and ridiculous technical proficiency. I usually hate a lot of this shit, but Brain Drill has always just worked for me. Self released.
