Back in the 2nd half of the 70's and beginning of the 80's, Heavy Metal wasn't a common expression among a people who had just discovered that there was a real world behind the invisible wall built by the dictatorship that had only fallen a few years earlier in Portugal.
"Beatnicks", "Aqui De'l Rock", and even "TNT" at the very beginning of the 80's, were some of the bands who had been releasing some singles and EP's of Hard-Rock, paving 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 only, features the ones, that i believe, to be the most important portuguese metal albums until today, as also all the records that pioneered and made possible the rising of the genre we all love, in Portugal. It's fantastic music! I'm not perfect, so the list may not suit the standarts of all users (the ones that are familiar with portuguese heavy music mostly) so i'll gladly appreciate all critics and comments, they are welcome. Any information you need regarding any of this bands or portuguese metal related, just PM me.
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 is for you all. Enjoy!
