Hi guys, this thread is for us all to post photos, lists and links related to collections.
Be they CDs, tapes, vinyl, patches, badges, posters, concert tickets, autographs, bumper stickers - if it's a 'collection' it's welcome in here.
Also if you find a wicked collection online somewhere you can post that too but please credit who it belongs to.

Site-wide forum rules apply and this should mainly contain metal, but if you just happen to have a collection of something worth posting go for it.
A suggestion for posting images is to use spoiler tags if they are wider than say 800 pixels or use a thumbnail and link to the image.

Bring it on! :metal:

My Galneryus CD collection:

Image

Posted because they are one of my favorite bands and their stuff is rather pricey and not exactly easy to get. I'm missing stuff like "Rebel Flag", the "Voices from the Past" singles, and a few DVDs. I included related projects like Spinalcord, Syu, and Yukhinen. I'll have to update this once Vetelgyus is released.

What if we want to update or add to a post? Just post again, or edit the existing? I assume the first.

I'd suggest adding to the thread and not removing stuff, a new post is cool with me :nods:

Where's the collection dread? You break your camera trying to take enough photos? I'm most interested to dread, SLK, forestcorpse, androdion, and daemonlord's collections respectively. I'll post some pictures of my meager collection and highlights tomorrow probably.

Here's my 陰陽座 (Onmyo-Za) CD collection. My favorite band at the moment and the band that essentially got me into Japanese music. Not sure why I posted Galneryus first though. :P

Full-lengths, 2 live albums, 1 compilation:

I always just figured you had a wicked collection of osdm laying around somewhere.

I overcame my 'technical issues' and grabbed some photos, not too hi-res, it's just an overview of my CDs only.
I'll submit some photos of more specific sections I'm most pleased with, like what Perdition666 is doing

That's an insanely impressive collection dreadmeat! I will second wanting to see SLK's collection, but I'd also love to see slayerhatesusall's collection. How many copies of INC's second album do you have? :lol:

I'll be home on the weekend and can post my collection then, but it's only 800-1000 CDs. I'll show off my Alice Cooper collection too.

My collection may not be massive compared to some guys on here (dread, SLK, forestcorpse, petterot come immediately to mind), but I'm more than happy with it's progression. Slowly closing in on (only) 1200 items (tapes, vinyl, cds). Here you go, with a free cat shot.

Image

And my small but growing 7" collection

My entire collection is also on Discogs, good way to keep a track of purchases. It's also in my sig.

Thanks! I made the Anthrax logo at the bottom of the cap. Joey Belladonna gave me a big thumbs up :p
I wear it very regularly. Any thought on how to preserve the signatures the best? Although it is permanent marker.

Sounds like a fun idea. Too bad my collection (somewhere around 1100 items) is so widespread in my apartment that I can't contain it in a single photo.
Maybe I'll just take some single-band shots :)

Gee, my other Photobucket images are available. Oh, the Internet and its mysteries! :D

That was a shitty photo I did for a report I once filled on the website. Something to do with two different versions of the compilation existing.

PS: Made it private now. Sorry, but I'm not ready to share that much. :lol:

Unsurprising to anyone who knows me

14 records, 31 CDs and a 10 CD boxset and their 3 DVDs. Since got Always, Mandylion and Nighttime Birds on vinyl reissue, and Always on double CD, the new album Afterwords on CD and Vinyl. Got two bags, fourteen different shirts, and 4 patches on my cut off.

And...

Yep. My Anneke collection's pretty crazy too, but not taken a photo of it all.

Got tickets to see their two 25th anniversary shows. Can't wait!

Given that we're getting into girlie territory I might as well shock many around here and post pictures of one of my biggest assets. I lovingly call it "The Tarja Years". :love:

If you need any help navigating their discography, let me know. Its not as daunting as say, Ningen-Isu, but is still pretty confusing (esp. to westerners). Their 2005 album "Garyou Tensei" is as good of a starting place as any. As funny as it sounds, I got into Onmyo-Za by accident. In late 2012, I already listened to a few Japanese bands and was interested in discovering more... I was trying to remember the name of the band Crick was always pimping out (Ningen-Isu), so I kept checking any Japanese-named band that popped up in the updated band list on M-A's frontpage. I liked Onmyo-Za's band-photo and concept, and started with Kishi Bojin (their 2011 album) mainly because I liked the album cover - its still my favorite by them.

The bottom left and center DVDs are the limited editions. I was lucky to get a copy of those. They're very nice - both have extra photobooks and improved packaging.

Speaking of girlie territory, might as well go all the way. :P Here's a bunch of Japanese all-girl metal bands (I didn't bother with bands on the rock side of the fence). I'll post Aphasia once I get all their CDs. Not sure why I haven't bothered with Show-Ya yet.

@ androdion: I had no idea you were such a Nightwish fanboy.

Yeah, Von has a shitload of cool vinyl indeed!

And yes I am. But I more or less halted with the Nightwish related activities after 2005, after Tarja left and the already overly crappy music Tuomas was writing met its match with that ABBA singer they hired. Seriously, it pissed me off real bad. Plus, 2005 was kind of a turning point for me as it was more or less my "year zero" for OSDM. I went to my first underground metal festival that year, saw Incantation among many others and spent a whole weekend listening to Severed Survival in-between the bands playing. That was so because a friend I went with bought the CD there and handed it to the guy doing the sound, so the guy would pop it up between bands. You could say that that weekend really changed my life. Afterwards I started being bombarded with death, thrash, black and grind from that friend of mine and I never stopped again. I still have a very soft spot for Nightwish though. I guess I will always have it. ;)

This is my meager collection, around 550 or so cds:

All that jumbled shit on the bottom middle is my wife's, I also have about 80 cds in a binder somewhere from way back when before I cared about collecting so there's no booklets or inserts or anything, just discs.

Here's some of my more prized items, either hard to find, pretty limited, or expensive (or all three for that matter):

Image

Darkness Over Depth - S/T
Bound By Entrails - For Valhall's Sorrow
Antestor - The Forsaken/Det tapte liv
Appalling Spawn - Freedom, Hope & Fury

Image

Arvinger - Helgards Fall
Dark Tranquillity - Projector it's hard to make out but the booklet is signed
Dark Tranquillity - A Memory Construct limited tour single

Some nice colections there, love these threads. I will see if I can get time to picture mine, I have over 3000 cds/tapes/lps though I have not played or listened too the lps or tapes in years! Some nice rarities to boot.

I guess we're through with the girlie talk then, let me post some rarities I own.

There you go.

And for manning up nothing better than a slice of rotten Finnish bread, with some foreign flavour that still feels pretty much at home there. And I can't believe I forgot to put Abhorrence in the picture... dumbass! :brick:

"Finnish" stuff.

And the bonus. ;)

Pretty nice stuff. :) That Dan Swano "Moontower" is rare now? *checks ebay* Wow, only one copy for $30.

I think I'll post some of my favorite NA/Euro bands/CDs in a bit. I don't have many rarities, but there's a few that are worth something. It'll probably be fun to revisit some of the stuff I listened to from 1995-2004.
