“It has to have that feeling from within, that’s black metal. It’s the same feeling I had as a kid when I listened to Burzum. That feeling, when it’s harnessed from the inside, is the “black metal feeling.”

NECROPHAGIA had to cancel and NIFELHEIM to the rescue. Definitely one of the best live bands ever!! Too bad Egge Disintegrator wasn´t there. I missed the guy, even though Axenrot (drummer in the band in the end of the 90´s. Later in Opeth, Bloodbath etc) did a great job.

Såsom frihetens kaotiska tillvaro”
One of the best bands I´ve “found” the past couple of years. I´ve said it before and I say it again! They freaking kick some serious ass!!

“The origins of Altair date back to December 1997. The musical style of the band at this point in time was speed metal with clean vocals and only some elements of thrash. Cover songs played at rehearsals included Running Wilds “Under Jolly Roger”, Powermads “Slaughterhouse” and an infamous version of Judas Priests “Breaking the Law” played in less than 90 seconds.”
From Finspång, Sweden.
