Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

How long listening, inspired by: I started listening to metal in the early 80's. My first concert was SAXON in cork in june'83... from then on it just all went downhill... haha!!

How and when did you become a collector?

I am collecting vinyl now over 20 years. I collect metal because for me it's the only passion that I have known for so long and of course I love the music...

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I try to collect 80's stuff on vinyl and I used to collect tapes [mostly oiginal demos] but for 90's and newer releases I am just as happy to receive them as cd's.

Which styles do you collect?

No one particular style all heavy, thrash, power, speed, death, epic... whatever once it's good and makes my head bang and my heart race...

How big is your collection?

about 4000 of vinyl, cd, tapes... very few cdrs. I mostly collect originals.

Where do you buy?

I tend not to sell but I do buy!!

Your favourite records (by heart or value):

I need much more space to fulfill this task... but here are some of my favourites:
BATHORY.under the sign of the black mark
IRON MAIDEN.piece of mind
HEAVY LOAD.death or glory
MANILLA ROAD.crystal logic
DESTRUCTION.infernal overkill
INHERENT SIN.children of the night m-lp
plenty more I could mention but I would be here all day...

Do you trade / buy / sell?

I am really more interested in buying...

Any famous last words?

I was born on a dark winter's night thunder and lightning greeted me....
