About Galileo Records
Galileo Records is a Progressive Rock label / publishing company based in Grenchen, Switzerland.
Its activities started in 1998/1999. Konny Eisenring from Black Rills Records and Patrick Becker saw an astonishing then new French band at a festival in France. As they both were captured by the sound they heard there, they decided to contact the band. After their brilliant performance at the festival they wanted to know if they had a label and the answer was "no, we haven't, nobody is interested in an all instrumental band". So Konny and Patrick agreed to found a label to release XANG's debut.
A name for the label had to be chosen. After a few brainstorming sessions they decided to go for Galileo Records. This because Galileo Galilei was an incredible man who, as you know, realised and affirmed that our earth is a globe and not a disk. As his ideas were too 'progressive' for his time, he had to abjure to his affirmations. He did, but still he was right...
Just after Galileo Records had signed its second band - METAPHOR - Konny quit Galileo Records. Since then the company is lead by Patrick Becker who went forward strongly and established Galileo Records well in the Progressive Rock scene.
In 2005, Patrick went one step further and set up Galileo Records LLC, a company registered with the Swiss commercial register.
The goal of the company is to give Prog bands a fair chance to release their music all over the world. To this end, Galileo records has concluded license and distribution agreements for most relevant markets.
Galileo Records is able to sells CD's through its online store. If you are interested to have your music listed in our shop, please contact us.
