Altair - good old thrash metal from Sweden
Altair is an old school thrash metal band from Stockholm, Sweden that should appeal to fans of bands like Kreator and Overkill.
The origins of Altair date back to 1997, but its members never strived for success, and the band has always been only sporadically active. A few compilation album tracks and one eponymous EP remain the only official releases so far.
The band is a renowned live act though, and played a number of well-received shows in their home country Sweden as well as in Italy and Latvia before taking a break in 2008.
