Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I have been listening Heavy Metal since I was 5 years old. My mother gave me my first record. (KISS- DESTROYER) My life was changed at that moment.

How and when did you become a collector?

My first records were bought with the allowance my parents gave me,I used to save money to get some imports. Then when I got my first job I got more serious about collecting, but I have been out of control for the last 5 years (Costed me a divorce already ) I collect because Heavy Metal is my life,I cant describe that feeling when you finally find that album you have been looking for years,My heart stops,its hard to breath,blood runs.. and you just scream FUUUUCKK YEEESSSS!!! Hahahahah

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I have a bunch of vinyls,but I collect CDs now.

Which styles do you collect?

I do concentrate more in late 70`s and 80`s Heavy Metal,classic stuff,hard rock,speed and thrash. I collect progressive stuff to (Love Italian bands).

How big is your collection?

I should have around 2200 Cds and maybe 500 Vinyls.

Where do you buy?

Most likely I buy my records on the internet,I spend hours surfing different sources hunting for stuff. I like to go to some stores,you can find surprises,and everytime I go to a new country or city I dont care about the tourist attractions I go where the metal is!!! When Im in Mexico City I love to go to El Tianguis del Chopo.
