ALTERS is a Polish rock band combining vintage guitars and psychedelic of the 70s, synth sounds of the 80s with modern electronic music, historic instruments (lute, viola da gamba) and original visuals.
In autumn 2017 we have released our second album “Dawn” with the French label Musea Records. The premiere concerts were played in Poland (e.g. at Spring Break Festival), Germany, Switzerland and Iceland.
Our album got a lot of good reviews for example in Porcys, Gazeta Magnetofonowa, Void or Riff Magazine (San Fransisco). We gave interviews to Livetrigger Magazine (Milano) and a number of radio stations.
Paweł Zalewski: vocal, guitar, keyboards, viola da gamba, saz
Piotr Zalewski: vocal, keyboards, electronics, bass, viola da gamba, lute
Robert Pludra: drums, santur
Osmo Nadir: visual magic
“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”
