Description

Rastilho Records is one of the historic Portuguese record labels. It´s Portugal's largest independent label with an extensive catalog of records.

Formed by Pedro Vindeirinho and headquartered in Leiria, it became one of the unavoidable and essential record labels of Portuguese music.

The first record released was by the label was Walls of Shame by Intervenzione, a classic band of '90s Portuguese punk. Musical quality, aesthetic care, affordable prices, new forms of distribution in the recording industry and culture Do-It -Yourself were some of the guidelines of this project . In the words of the Rastilho Records founder, "Lasted to the present day, untouchable . I grew up with punk , I never forgot my roots, what made me start this project".

June 2010 saw the birth of Rastilho Metal Records, a subsidiary/sister label of Rastilho Records dedicated exclusively to metal and hardcore releases.

With licensing agreements with some major labels for vinyl editions (Universal, Sony, Valentim de Carvalho, NorteSul, etc), Rastilho Records has become known in recent years for their vinyl editions of some of the biggest names in Portuguese music . Although vinyl has never been a fad to the label, since 2006, with the release of Masquerade Legendary Tigerman, Rastilho Records has built the largest vinyl catalogue of Portuguese music .

Its releases can be found in major national chain stores, the best Portuguese independent stores, some bookstores and at concerts and festivals. Additionally, part of its catalog is found on sale at various digital platforms.

The export of Portuguese music and international distribution of its artists has become a major priority in recent years . The label has acquired distribution agreements in some European countries, but every day seeks new forms of distribution and new international partners to help them grow in a consolidated manner.

Currently, their universe consists of Rastilho.Com online store, Rastilho Records, Rastilho Metal Records and Mystore.Rastilho, dedicated to the production and sale of merchandise.

Above all, Rastilho Records is a family, a house where we like to be and/or back at, and where each band is treated with respect. Without these hundreds of wonderful musicians with whom we have the pleasure of working with, our existence doesn't make sense.
