Maybe this has been discused before, but how long have you been collecting death metal and how big is your collection?

I wil start with mine, 320 CD's and about 20 LP's mostly from death metal from 1989-1993.

When I was younger I never bought anything. Then a couple of years back I started gathering all I liked. All kinds of stuf from punk to bm cd's and some LP's if cd versions weren't available / demo tapes. I quit collecting little over a year ago and sold alot when I decided to move over to Thailand. I think I have about 600 records left back home but I can't listen to them and probably never will again. I got it all copied in WAV on my pc and the rest on MP3.

A reason I quit collecting next to the high risk of theft over here is that all the shit I want goes for 30 euro's or more on ebay and they can go F**K themselves. Maybe one day if I win the lottery because offcourse I'd love to just have it all.

I have somewhere fro 30-40 cds I don't bother counting. I only own Serpents of the light by Deicide and Pestapokalypse VI by belphegor. Unless Rom 5:12 counts as Death metal. I mostly collect symphonic metal, gothic and doom, because my dad gets loads of metal but doesnt like those genres

Nice dude, very nice. I'm collecting for about six years now I guess. I started collecting vinyl about three years ago. Still young; long not done collecting, that's for sure :) .

EDIT: Any pics perhaps? Posting how many shit you own isn't really that cool (not directly to you Asti but a general message :) ).

Hard to make Pics as everything is spread everywhere in my apartment and around 1000 CDs are still stored at my parents house due to lack of space :-)
Maybe I can make some pictures of the living room where everywhere is wildly stored around :-)

Hmmm, I currectly have the same problem. All CD's and half the LP's are in my appartment and rare vinyl+tapes are at my parents' house. Perhaps I'll post some other pictures soon.

Idea: Brag about your super awesome ultra rare LP's by posting a pic :D ?

Simple, don't get married and don't have kids. I'm in my mid 30's, good job, endless $ supply for my hobbies. All my friends, they got married, then divorced, now they don't have a pot to piss in.

Is it just me, or was the OP specifically asking about *death metal* albums in our collections?

Anyway, I like death metal, though new to it... particularly I like material from the late 80s and early 90s, though I'm a bigger melodeath fan (including Gothenburg). I don't have much death metal in my collection, whether it be traditional, raw, melo, etc. I have the following in my collection:

In Flames - Lunar Strain and Subterranean mini-CD (re-issues)
Amon Amarth - 2-disc edition of Versus the World and CD/DVD of Twilight of the Thunder God
Children of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll
Cannibal Corpse - Kill
Weapon (the one from Newfoundland, Canada) - The Forging
Incidium - Corporal Punishment
Death - The Sound of Perseverance
Morta Skuld - Surface
Amorphis - Skyforger
Arch Enemy - Tyrants of the Rising Sun DVD

11 death metal/melodeath CDs and one DVD . Though, Bodom and Amorphis are debatable I suppose. Only been into death metal a couple years.

Death metal? Like, 12 maybe. I don't like death metal much. One notable item that I have is a copy of Exhumed's Platters of Splatter 3-disc version, of which only 1000 copies were made


Albums in total I have about 850, about 2/3 of which are cd's. Probably 50% metal, 20% funk/soul, and 30% other stuff, blues, jazz, rock, classical, hip hop, and a bunch of other schlitz.

I've been collecting cds for about 6 years, my total is somewhere around 900. Pretty much all metal, and I've recently started trying to get bands full discographies.

That's epic. How'd you find racks like that for the CDs?


As for my collection, I only started about 2-3 years ago and have never had much cash to spend on them. But I try to buy as many as I can and thus have right about 200 CDs.

Wow, I'm really impressed with some of the collections here. I myself only have about 30-35 CDs and 10 or so tapes, and only 3 death metal CDs (2 Amon Amarth and 1 Adversary). I'd love to have more, but I just don't have the money. Right now, I'm sinking everything I earn into patches and t-shirts.

I have about 800 cds that are on metal-archives and I guess around 150-200 that aren't. The vast, vast majority is black metal with most of the rest being stuff like dark ambient, industrial, darkwave and videogame soundtracks. Been collecting for a little over ten years now. Black metal cds don't tend to be expensive (between 10-14 euros) and buying around 4-6 cds a months will add up to a metric crapton of albums over the years.
Wish I could take proper pictures, but my collection of scattered over two rooms, there's piles of cds everywhere, it's ridiculous! :lol:

It comes like that in the basic pack. The first is to listen. The second is to kill posers (blood stains improve the sound of this recording).

I should have around 400 CDs of metal, and maybe 250-300 of classical music. I have also a bunch of tapes, but I don't use them anymore. I can't take a pic because all of them are back home, and the only ones I have right now are "Darkness Descends" and "Never, Neverland". And thinking carefully... I don't even have a camera to take a pic!

That's extremely impressive for one year. I'm only approaching 200 CD's, and have been collecting for 3 years. Although, for the first year I only bought about 10 albums, so you could say I've seriously been collecting for 2 years.

Mine is expanding weekly at the moment, but I only have about 150 cd's after about 2 to 3 years of properly collecting. Mainly black & pagan/folk metal.

Got around 100 cds, about 90 of them are metal. Also have a couple LPs and a 7". If I had more money I'd have way more, but bills and drugs take priority.
