AltarEgo is an old school death metal band from The Netherlands that has been around since the early ’90s.
In 2016, former member and guitarist Marcel Verdurmen announced the comeback of Altar with a new lineup, being the biggest change going from a male to a female singer. Early 2018, the band released a videoclip for a brand new song entitled ‘Unfinished Business’ and later that year the band decided to change its name to AltarEgo, to further distance themselves from the previous Altar.
After having played numerous shows in 2017 with bands like Rotting Christ and Batushka and recording their EP in 2018, the band is currently working hard on new material and is looking to release a full length album soon.
