Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I've been listening to hard-rock/Metal for 16 years now starting with Van Halen. But the big step was when a friend of mine introduced me to the wave of US speed-thrash at the end of the 80s.

How and when did you become a collector?

Which styles do you collect?

I concentrate on US metal and its subgenres ( heavy/power/speed/prog/techno-thrash-death ) becauses it gives me the best feeling of power, melody and technique.
