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 are abound. 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.

New vinyl arrival, a rather beaten up copy of #Pestilence - #Spheres on clear vinyl, ltd to 100 copies. Front looks fine, damage is to the back cover, multiple bends and creases, luckily the vinyl itself is OK. Only two times I've ordered vinyl from Hammerheart & both come bent up and damaged - am I just unlucky? Pissed off 😡 . #vinyligclub #metalvinyl #vinylcollector #metalvinylcollector #limitededition #metalhead #vinyl


  1. Yeah, HH always uses flimsy/poor quality boxes to save themselves money and the customer is the one that suffers!

    1. A lot have people sharing the same sentiment on Instagram... 😑
