Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I am listen Heavy Metal since 1986,and my first Tape I ever heard was Metallica-Ride the Lightning on the A-Side and Overkill-Fuck you on the B-Side!

How and when did you become a collector?

I am a Record Collector since 1990,it was at the same time as I visit Metal Concerts! It is a great question why I collect records,I would say,everybody collects something,so I am collecting Records,it has a great spirit for me :-)

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I only collect Records like Picture Discs,coloured Vinyls,Shapes,Uncut Shapes and stuff like this...

Which styles do you collect?

My favourite music is Thrash,Speed and the old Heavy Metal,but I prefer most the Thrash style :-)

How big is your collection?

I have ~100 Records in my collection,it is not so much,but my records are all in great condition,because it is very important for me to have only excellent or better mint conditioned records in my collection! The point is I have many very rare records and they are really expensive and very hard to find in these years,especially my Venom Records :-)

Where do you buy?

In the early 80´s I´ve bought my Records only via Magazines like Rock Hard and Metal Hammer after that I´ve bought it from collectors all over the World and in the last years I´ve bouhgt it via Internet...
