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.

Darklin Reach - Where Evil Dwells

Another old obscurity here, 'Where Evil Dwells', the only full length release from this Chicagoan speed/thrash metal band. A good mix of speed and thrash throughout, this originally came out in 1992, a time when most eyes & ears were pointing toward more extreme options, thus this (as well as many other speed/thrash bands) went by the wayside, sadly undiscovered by many. Original pressing on Tombstone Records. The full album can be sampled below:
