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.

Obituary - Obituary

I must admit, in their recent years before this album, I'd not been overly wowed by much material Obituary had released. Sure, they could still kick out the jams, but nothing really grabbed me like their early stuff. When I heard they were releasing a self titled album quite so far down the line into their careers, I'll again admit I figured they were probably done for - doing a self titled album can either mean a band is treading water and lacking ideas, or it can be a fully focused crystallisation of what makes the band what they are. Thankfully, it was the latter - 'Obituary' is the best album Obituary has released in donkey's years. Well worth checking out if you - like myself - had become a little jaded with them.
