Altar

Altar is a Dutch death metal band from Hardenberg, Overijssel, formed in 1990 under various names, including Manticore and Anubis. Eventually they settled on Altar. After five full-length the band broke up in autumn 2001, but guitarists Marcel Verdurmen and Richard Ludwig later reformed the band with a new line-up. The band eventually split-up again in 2007.
Ten years later, Altar has risen from the ashes with a new line-up, including the former Paper Doll Decay lead vocalist, Janneke de Rooy. The reformed band had its first live show on June 17, 2017.
