What determines how you build your metal collection? For instance, do you collect based on the quality of an album and its importance to its respective genre or do you collect randomly for the sole sake of collecting and expanding your music collection?

Furthermore, does a specific format hold more importance than another format in your purchase decision?

Discuss.

The word "collecting" should be purged from the vocabulary of any worthy fan of metal (or music on a general level), at least in the deleterious meaning well portrayed by the second part of your question.

Personally I'd never-ever buy a record I don't like for the purpose of filling a hole in a certain band's discography or showing off, if I happen to buy something I don't like I'll sell/trade it. I used to own most of those awful uberkvlt records that kids drool over (1st Mutiilation, 1st/2nd Absurd, Clandestine Blaze etc) having bought them out of sheer curiosity mainly when they were released, sold them for heaps of money and financed brandnew tv screens, proper metal records, book etc. I listen to all my 1,500+ records and be sure none of it is in M/M condition -fucking proud of that.

It's really cool to tell collectors of music to fuck off. Does that apply to stamp-, art-, bug-, etc- collectors aswell?

I personally enjoy collecting stuff related to bands and artists that I like. Shoot me.

Yes, if you end up buying stuff you don't really like/need for the sole purpose of showing the world how cool you are for owning a certain piece of art/bug/stamp. Mercyful Fate is possibly my fave band ever but that didn't prevent me from selling those terrible Dead Again, 9 etc albums of theirs, my "collection" is -OMG OMG- incomplete and I still sleep peacefully at night.

*can't wait for the "ITS MY MONEY AND I DO WHAT I WANT WITH IT" input from that Sabbat collector from the UK*

Used to buy obscure records mostly, now I grab a classic from time to time as well. I prefer Vinyl, but I'm not spending the horrific prices of today, I'll buy CD versions for cheap instead.

I have never showed off my collection, I buy records for my own satisfaction, and I don't buy shit. I do however have different versions of the same records, and, *gasp*, I sleep well at night too. Go figure!

Do what thou wilt...

usually whatever band comes to mind when i get paid, more of a "gatherer" than collector, not trying to complete except for bands i really like, but often will buy records that i find good.

While i have many classics already, i want to get more, though my recent complaint is most punk LP's i am interested in, or newer release metal LPs go for cheaper than most popular/classic reissues these days (and of course classic records themselves usually a larger fortune when it comes to originals) that sometimes it gets stuck between the idea where i can buy half a punk bands discography or a bolt thrower reissue from earache. It is probably why my collection has a couple noticeable holes in it despite my best efforts these days to fill those gaps and only pick up the most essential new releases in between.

Yeah how dumb of me to imagine one would actually listen to the records he buys. What am I ever thinking.
