Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I first listened to hard rock/heavy metal when I was 12! My older sister had a couple of Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd records and it wasn't difficult for me to get interested in this glorious music!

How and when did you become a collector?

I started buying records when I was 14, collecting rare stuff since I was around 18!

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I prefer vinyl records, especially nice 7" singles!

Which styles do you collect?

I mostly like NWOBHM, old thrash and good quality death and black metal.

How big is your collection?

I have around 1900 LP/7" vinyls and around 500 CD's. Also tons of video tapes and CD's with live and rare video stuff!

Where do you buy?

At 2nd hand shopes, but the last 4 years mostly through internet and trading!
