Back in the 2nd half of the 70's and beginning of the 80's, Heavy Metal wasn't a common expression amongst the portuguese. Portugal had just discovered that there was a real world behind the invisible wall built by the dictatorship that had fallen a few years earlier.

"Beatnicks", "Aqui De'l Rock", or "TNT" were some of the bands who had been releasing some singles and EP's of Hard-Rock at the very beginning of the 80's. They paved the rising of other bands that would work that sound, and release the first studio albums of Hard-Rock and Heavy Metal.

It was a critical decade for heavy rock in Portugal. This chronologic list of studio albums features the ones, that I believe, are the most important portuguese Hard-Rock and metal albums until today: the best and the pioneering ones. I excluded Punk-Rock but added Hardcore and Alternative Hard-Rock albums as well.

Either you're interested in portuguese music, or if you're just curious about it, or even if you are just passing by, this list will work out for you all. This list will grow bigger as the years go by of course, so if you have any suggestions, just let me know. Enjoy!

This list is extremely helpful ! A lot of bands from there are very underrated, In That Umbra is a good example.
