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.

Carcass - Symphonies of Sickness

Carcass' 2nd album here; where they kept their grinding edge but moved away from the carcinogenic & atonal distortion blistered mess that was their debut, to something with more palatable structuring and songwriting. This pressing is the most interesting thing for me, as it's a joint release between Combat Records & Earache (the first US pressing of it, I believe). Not a particularly easy to version find these days. As is evident, this has the original artwork intact, too. Carcass are still the daddies of pathology/gore inspired metal to this very day.
