Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

I am listen to all forms of Metal music like Heavy, Speed, Power, Thrash, Death, Black, Doom but mostly in pure old form, not in modern way. Some friends on my 10th birthday in 1995 say me about band called Pantera and describe their music like very HEAVY and cool stuff, so after that we went to local shop and bought tape "Vulgar Display Of Power". Exactly with this tape began all my future tastes in music and started madness called collecting.

How and when did you become a collector?

I am in serious colecting just from 2006. I collect original first editions because any other form of physical expression of music is unable to convey the spirit of the era when the album was recorded

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I prefer CD's but also LP's when it make sense to me

Which styles do you collect?

Now i am much more in old Heavy, Thrash, Power and Death Metal stuff but i can't explain why exactly. I think because this kind of metal genre describe my inner world the best way.

How big is your collection?

Nothing serious, sadly. Just near three hundred of CD's and twenty pieces vinyl. 90% first original editions, no bootlegs!

Where do you buy?

I am buying over the whole globe through many sites/forums,mails etc. I have nothing for sale/trade.
