Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

Since 1980, when I saw some excelent LP Covers on a record store. I decide to listen to the music and was addicted. I was influenced by AC/DC, IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST, SAXON, MOTÖRHEAD, TRUST, BARON ROJO,...

How and when did you become a collector?

I'm collecting some vinyl records of my favourit bands, since 5 years ago. IRON MAIDEN, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MANILLA ROAD...

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I only collect recordsthat I like, not the entire discographie and try to get my hands on LP's (better if signed), Pic.Discs, Shape Pic Discs, regular 7" and of course the new albums on CD (I try to buy from the band and ask allways to sign it).

Which styles do you collect?

Only on traditional heavy, speccially with epic lyrics. I don't like Power, Teutonic, Symphonic, Progressive...Besides the bands listed on 4), i praise SKULLVIEW, TIERRA SANTA, T.T. DIRE, DOOMSWORD, SLOUGH FEG, MORNINGSTAR(the last album), VIRGIN STEELE(the last 4 albums), DOMINE (the first), MADD HUNTER, SLAYER (except last 2), OMEN (except last 2), BROCAS HELM,...

How big is your collection?

Not that great, only 150cds and 50 vinyl. I know about 8000 albums, but i only like a few

Where do you buy?
