ALTAREGO: New lineup

AltarEgo announce changes in their lineup. The guitarist Bas Karman and the drummer Erwin ‘Bakvet’ Koerts left the band. Now the guitarist David and the drummer Maik make part of the AterEgo band.

Marcel Verdurmen, lead guitarist, says:
“Unfortunately we have to announce that both Bas Karman and Erwin ‘Bakvet’ Koerts have decided to leave the band. Both Bas and Erwin informed us that they are no longer able to combine the band with their other band, job, and education. We are grateful for their dedication and this great adventure that we have experienced with them. Of course we have found excellent replacements for Bas and Erwin and are proud to present to you our new guitarist David and drummer Maik. Both bring a lot of talent and we look forward to continue this adventure with them.”

The band is set to play at Southern Discomfort fest in Kristiansand, Norway on September 13th. This will be the last show for Bas and Erwin.
AltarEgo was founded by guitarist Marcel Verdurmen in 2016, initially as Altar, the band he was part of from 1995 to 2001 and later from 2002 to 2007. The band changed their name to AltarEgo in 2018. The band released a EP earlier this year, entitled ‘The Exorcism Of Jesus Christ’, to massive critical acclaim.
More news is coming soon.

AltarEgo: Coming Back from the ‘90s

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.

AltarEgo’s complete line-up:

Janneke de Rooy – vocals
Marcel Verdurmen – guitar
Bas Karman – guitar
Martin Bruinewoud – bass guitar
Erwin ‘Bakvet’ Koerts – drums
