Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

Well I've been listening to metal for about 37years or since the early 70's. Actually metal wasn't really a genre back in those days but refered as hard rock. Some of the early bands I listened to were Trapeze, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Uriah Heep, Budgie......well you see what I mean.

How and when did you become a collector?

Well I've been collecting albums (well used to) and cds since around 1972 to the present 2007. I collect because I'm avid music lover and in most cases some of what I have is rare or will be OOP at some point. Music or metal is my life always!

What kind of stuff do you collect?

Early on I was a collector of vinyl and still have some, but I colect mostly cds and do have some tapes as well.

Which styles do you collect?

Yes I do specialize on certain genres but on occassion will try other forms. I'm mostly into power metal, melodic power metal, oldschool, traditional, progressive, some melodic death, some AOR and thrash but I prefer power metal over aything else.

How big is your collection?

If I were to say it is at around 7000+ cds give or take, around 500 tapes and 50 albums.

Where do you buy?

I buy mostly online from prefered metal vendors, some from friends who sell online and occassional at local record shops.

Your favourite records (by heart or value):

Primal Fear - The Book Of Seven Seals.
Angel Dust

Do you trade / buy / sell?

Well it depends if someone is looking buy for the most part no!

Any famous last words?

"May the metal war gods reign down on you and bang your head"
