Vindictive Records, commonly styled as VindicTive Records is a Syracuse-based record label founded by Jacob Vindic. It holds three major offices, the main one in Syracuse, the second in London, and the third in Sydney.


American producer Jacob Vindic, who had been producing years before, had plans of creating his own record label. As he told the American metal magazine Metalix, of which he is a major part of, "I've always wanted to jumpstart my own record label, it was just a matter of money and time". Vindictive Records was officially opened on May 5 2005, and all artists signed with Jacob Vindic are now produced through Vindictive. It is co-founded by Christopher "Magnellan" Owens, who died of a heart-attack in late 2004 before the label could be officially authorised.
