ALTAREGO in writing more for 2020 release


AltarEgo In Writing Mode For A 2020 release

Dutch death metal band AltarEgo announces on Facebook that they are currently in writing mode for new material. The cmaterial is expected to be released in 2020.It will be the follow up to the EP ‘The Exorcism Of Jesus Christ’.

The band, who changed their name to AltarEgo in 2018, also changed their logo in October to suit its new identity.

Vocalist Janneke de Rooy stated:
We always had the intention of changing the AltarEgo logo. At the time (2018), we liked what we had in such short time because we wanted to let the world know about our name change. However, this time, with 2 new members, it only made sense to create both a new logo as well as a new band photo. I think that the logo we have now truly represents AltarEgo in its purest form.”

Apart from a new logo, the band recently announced two new members. Maik Snippe and David Veldhuis will be taking over from Erwin ‘Bakvet’ Koerts and Bas Karman.

AltarEgo is confirmed for Skullcrusher Heavy Metal Dresden – Metal Festival For Children struck by cancer.  The festival is held from October 2nd to October 4th 2020, in Dresden. More shows for 2020 will be announced soon.

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, to avoid conflicts with the original members of Altar, who do one-off festival appearances since then. AltarEgo released a self-financed EP in February 2019, entitled ‘The Exorcism Of Jesus Christ’, to massive critical acclaim.
