Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I listen to Heavy Metal since i was 14 someone gave me a Running Wild tape at school i think..so much for good marks at school.

How and when did you become a collector?

I collect for the last 2 and a half years. I collect to get the attention of girls and for guys to be jealous of me!

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I collect 80s European, US and global Heavy Metal only. The more epic it sounds the better!

Which styles do you collect?

I concentrate on Epic Metal. The Feeling of Power is just unbeatable.

How big is your collection?

Around 350-400 Lps and 150 Cds. Size doesnt matter only quality! (and yes, I am only talking about my collection here!)

Where do you buy?

I get my records from the Internet and people i meet on it, no matter if they are sellers or members of bands. I prefer the second!

Your favourite records (by heart or value):

Only stuff that means something to my heart and not my pocket:
Heathens Rage - Same EP
Crush - Kingdom of the Kings LP
Auroch - EP
Dark Quarterer - Same LP
Leader - Out in the Wastelands LP
Rellik - Killer LP
Brocas Helm - Black Death LP
Iron Cross - Same (OPM rerelease) LP
Abraxas - Shattered by a terrible Prediction EP
Aria - Hero of a Speedway LP
I have more rare stuff like D.D.T, Salem's Wych blah blah etc etc but i prefer to concentrate on music I really love rather than how many copies something was pressed.

Do you trade / buy / sell?

Yeah!! Offer me anything from the 80s if its Heavy metal!

Any famous last words?

That the collectors scene is all about prestige these days and we should all concentrate on trading in real prices between us for stuff that carries the torch of Metal, than whatever shitty LP sells for 300 dollars just cos its 80s private vinyl...FUCK THAT!
