Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I have been listening to Metal since i was 12 years old. I started from Queen, Alice Cooper and Metallica. I was watching MTV at a time when it still showed Metal video clips and i was impressed from the music and the energy! It was only a matter of time to find some friends who could copy tapes for me.

How and when did you become a collector?

I collect vinyl since 1995 when i found an old AKAI turntable in the attic. The vinyl format fascinated me! I collect CD'S since 1993. My first CD was Manowar - Hail to England and my first record was Armored Saint - Raising Fear.

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I collect mostly lps,7"s and CDs.

Which styles do you collect?

I love 80s US Metal, Power, Epic, Doom. I consider the US as the garden of Eden for Heavy Metal. I also love some good old fashioned NWOBHM bands and of course some European ones with quality and authentic style. I also concentrate on everything that involves MANOWAR, the greatest band on this planet!

More than 4200 items. About 2600 records and 1600 cds
