Favourite metal genre(s):

I aim to have a very open mind when it comes to metal. I try to have a variety of albums in my collection so that I have something for every mood. I want to experience the best that every genre has to offer and enjoy a few guilty pleasures along the way. I am always looking for new bands and after discovering this site I found out there are a fucking ton of them out there. I am not an expert and I don't pretend to be.

Ratings scale:
100 - Perfection (A rating I will probably never give)
90-100 Essential (A must own for any collection)
80-89 (A very good album, you won't be disappointed)
70-79 (Not a must own, but still worth checking out)
60-79 (For completionists only)
60 & lower (Don't bother, there are better albums to buy)

All of my collection is made up of original cds and vinyl purchased by me. I don't believe in illegally downloading unless it is to check out a band, then buy their albums if I like what I hear. Or, to be able to listen to an album that is way out of print and that I can't find anywhere and have to spend a shitload of money to add it to my collection. A completely downloaded collection is NOT a collection! Support the bands that you enjoy and fuck the rest of the bullshit that's out there! As for my wanted list, I'm a completionist and would like to have entire full length discographies no matter how long it takes.
