Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I got a tape with MAIDEN songs from a kid at school when I was 11. I got their albums and also SLAYER, MEGADETH, SEPULTURA from guys at school and finally got to buy my own records when I was 14 and had a job. But not until my 16th that I got seriously into metal and started to investigate the extreme metals like death/black.

How and when did you become a collector?

Serious collecting began at 18 when I got infected with the vinyl virus.

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I have all formats but the greatest passion is for vinyl - the smell, the look, the sound!

Which styles do you collect?

I have everything in my collection from NWoBHM, US, Power, Death, Thrash, Speed, Black, 70's metal and prog rock but my main interests are NWoBHM, US epic/power metal and 80's speed/thrash and true heavy metal. So everything except nu/hardcore/rap and faggotic crossover shit!

How big is your collection?

Roughly 75x original (demo) casettes. 200x CD's 200x LP's / 12" 100x 7" 3x 10"
