    This is just a few rare things I got on CD + the Barfly demo. I've got a ton more than this, just don't wanna pull it all out at once. ;D

    Some common albums I have respect for and few bit more rare albums, from my collection.

    Unfortunately my Jag Panzer's Ample Destruction is the least valuable of legal pressings. (cheers2)
    The cover on the original is so much cooler than on mine.

    Allright one more. Below are some of the personal faves of mine that I do own physical copy of (in exception of Arrow album). Not so rare albums here. Had to add that Arrow EP 84. 85. there just because I forgot about it and I don't think it was pressed too much. It's only one in that pic that is not one of my faves.

    Cheers! (beer)

    Likewise. I have so much stuff I'd like to own.. I guess that's issue for all of us (:D)

    When I started up I was focusing on more known heavy metal bands since they got attention in media, so it was natural to discover them first -- not really 2000's stuff as my roots are in old 80's albums such as Metallica's Kill'em All, Judas Priest -- and Sepultura was also one of the earliest bands I ever heard, and then some 90's stuff like Megadeth's Youthanasia and Maiden's X-Factor.

    Then came 90's bands like Rage (GER) and Running Wild (GER)'s 90's albums and Grave Digger. But then I pretty much started sloping into the more and more 80's and less 90's releases, and have almost completely skipped anything newer than mid-90's unless it's interesting reunion or old band's new release.. despite some great new ones that sound like 80's.

    This also makes it so that my record collection have far more of those more not-so-rare records (90's) bought on my early days and the rarer ones bought within over last decade or so. :)

    For over some time now I've been mostly favoring 80's heavy/speed/power with some thrash (I love bay-area) and then of course NWOBHM (the heavier side of it especially). But occasionally I do like also something else like doom.. or even hard rock or progressive rock.. it all depends.

    And then some (more meaningless offtopic blabber).. :P

    The best choice!
    I spent more time in intensive listening to these three masterpieces than i ever did before.
    Each! song has his own special charm and quality.
    No cheesy and clean sounds- just pure Heavy Metal music at its best!


    DEAL WITH IT!

    Fuck yeah! seen your mighty collection in the "Collectors Porn" thread, it's amazing.
    LEATHER NUNN is the best US album of all time, hope to get hold of a copy someday.
    METAL MERCHANT is also another want, I totally love that sample of "Electric Angel".

    Thank you, although my collection is a bit far from being called mighty. There are many other collectors
    with bigger and more expensive collections. I just started collecting early and since i was very much
    into U.S. Metal, i bought a lot of records before they became very expensive.
    Next time i visit a friend's place (that has a CD recorder deck) i will make some more samples (of M.M).

    Here are a few British rarities:

    @ gravedigger84 : Thank you man. I agree, Leather Nunn and Street Child are great.
    Also musically top are Iron Cross, Slauter Xstroyes. As for Paradoxx,
    i can't understand why a lot of collectors say it's average, i just love this record.

    chatzial: Agree. Some people have insane amount of records. But you seem to have quite a bit yourself. Very nice collection indeed judging by those what you've showed us.

    PS: I'd love to find that Widow LP some day also ;)

    I for instance have started collecting bit more rare stuff much later. I've got approx 350 records (of heavy metal-hard rock) perhaps now which is not that much in collectors circles, but don't take stress over the amount. If one stresses about that then discovering used records for sale loses it's taste. We all want to have everything that's either good or rare - but trying to buy everything fast doesn't just work. Even I sometimes check some auction and for example see that there's 5 very cool records for sale same time. But I just win bidding for 1/5 and think "damn, the other 4 were so cool also". One should be proud of getting that 1 cool record instead of cursing over how he lost the other 4. Enjoy what you buy for, record by record!

    As for when to buy a vinyl record over cd release: I try to get equally very rare metal albums as well as those that are semi-rare kickass albums equally as LP. I'm more keen to buy CD release when the record is more common & newer (and has it's attraction).

    I find LP more valuable to get when it's either "out-of-print or generally rare in CD format" - or it's just early heavy metal era's original LP press of a good album which may have had CD release coming out later.

    Don't know if that makes any sense. (zombie)

    Yes, i understand you. And 350 records is not bad. The thing that counts is to have
    what you like to listen to and makes you happy.

    Collecting is one of the things in life where age matters. And what i mean by that is this:
    i bought my first LP in 1982, so i have been buying vinyls (and later CDs) for 30 years.
    Music was my passion for as long as i remember, so most of my money went there.
    When someone buys for 30 years it's not that difficult to have a big collection.

    Yes I definitely agree with you. I think 350 records is about average what passionate not-so-old-metalhead would own. BUT it's all about getting what feeds your heavy-metal-hunger and keeps your neck well trained :) I bought my first record in perhaps.. 1992. I was very young. Well actually that would be lying, my dad bought it for me. I can remember as much that it was Metallica's Kill'em All. In addition I got few more cassettes and CD's the year after but I didn't get deeper into heavy metal before 1996-1997. :) Thanks to internet where few sites allowed to preview songs. There was this one site I don't remember anymore which had usually 1 album per band and 2 songs per album offered (heavy metal only). It was good source before it was shut down.

    Then ofcourse there was Vibrations of Doom. And that's what lead me to listen more stuff than what I could find on average shopping mall's record selection.

    There's one thing why I wish I was born decade earlier: record prices. Some of those records that you showed chatzial are very valuable now and cost a lot to buy. Well it means just one thing, buying rarest stuff in slower pace ;)

    For example that Leather Nunn LP. Perhaps some day if I find a good deal for it. (metal1)
    A great day though: Jag Panzer's Ample Destruction LP has just been sent to it's trip from America to Finland today! It's gonna be worthy addition to my collection and I'm stressing about it arriving in one piece. :P Now there's one record that makes this metalhead feel great. I really urge myself to get me a new LP record player this summer.

    Now that I think of it perhaps I should visit UK sometime in future and circle around fleemarkets and such to check out if they have Nwobhm records cheap there.
