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.

Exodus - Bonded By Blood

Exodus' seminal debut album here, which is still to this day a lynchpin of US thrash metal. This is an original of one of the very earliest pressings of it on Combat/Torrid Records. People are still banging their head against the stage to this, 32 years on from its release. That alone is testament to its top quality songwriting, frenetic playing and the much missed ball of charisma that was Paul Baloff. Upper echelons of thrash greatness right here.
