Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I listen to Heavy Metal since 1982, my father gave me a few hard rock tapes (Deep Purple, Scorpions, Queen) and the rest is history.

How and when did you become a collector?

I bought my first Heavy Metal LP in 1983, since then i have a passion with vinyl.

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I mainly collect vinyls but if something good is only printed on CD, then i buy CDs too.

Which styles do you collect?

My favorite style is '80s U.S. Metal due to the fact that Manowar is my all time favorite band but i also collect NWOBHM & Euro Metal etc. I listen to everything from Hard Rock to Power Metal except for Black/Death etc (i like only "clear" vocals).

How big is your collection?

I have around 3,500 vinyls (LPs, 12"s & 7"s) and 1,000 CD's

Where do you buy?

Mainly from the internet & i also do lots of trades

Your favourite records (by heart or value):

1. Paradoxx - Plan of attak
2. Morgana - Testpressing LP
3. Wyzard - Knights of Metal
4. Slauter Xstroyes - Winter Kill
5. Villain - Only Time Will Tell (autographed by all!!!)
6. Dark Starr - Dark Starr
7. Decoy Paris - Love On The Run
8. Child Saint - Child Saint

10. Lips - Hard & Heavy

Do you trade / buy / sell?

I am always interested in buying '80s private (or small label) heavy metal vinyls from around the world. Feel free to e-mail me a list of what you have. I also have many rare vinyls available for trade.

Any famous last words?

I wish to all good health & great trades !
