ALTERS is a rock band combining vintage guitars and psychedelic of the 70s, synth sounds of the 80s with modern electronic music, historical instruments and visuals.
The band has toured in Iceland, Switzerland, Germany and Poland. Their albums got a lot of good reviews in magazines such as Riff Magazine (San Fransisco), Void, Porcys or Gazeta Magnetofonowa. They gave interviews e.g. to Livetrigger Magazine (Milano), Music Street Journal (Illinois) and a number of radio stations.
ALTERS’s second album was released by the French label Musea Records and the third one by the Zenapolæ label from the USA in 2019.

Margarita Slepakova: lyrics
“Their first album was released in France, and its favourable reception
was well-received across Western Europe, leading to recognition in Poland as well.”
“It’s rare that the ending to a song makes it a must-listen, but that’s
what Polish prog-rockers Alters has given us on their new song “Dawn”.”
Shane Johnson (San Francisco)
“…an extremely interesting band blending post-rock and classic prog rock
with an exceedingly modern sound!”
Eden Kupermintz (Tel Aviv)
POST ROCK POST
“Somewhere between consciousness and unconsciousness, dreamy hallucinations
and memories, Alters creates a psychedelic world coloured by vintage guitars
and synths sounds adorned with historical instruments.”
“”Dawn” is a fantastic example of how to translate the legacy of prog rock giants
to modern and clear musical language (…) That’s quite an achievement.”
“One of the best Polish rock bands at the moment”
