The early band's name was MANTICORE, formed in 1988. It was changed for ALTAR in 1990. With the release of their demo-tape 'And God Created Satan To Blame For His Mistakes' back in 1992, the band started to become well-known in the death metal underground scene. It sold worldwide very well and soon every insider had heard of the brutal music and message ALTAR tried to spread. The first ALTAR-album 'Youth Against Christ' released in 1994 hit the scene with a shock. The intense brutality on this album got great reviews everywhere; it even went into the Dutch alternative charts.
This release 'And God Created Satan To Blame For His Mistakes' is the official demos re-issue, Bonus to the album are seven tracks, recorded live in Rotterdam in early 1993. All songs are restored and remastered by Berthus Westerhuijs at Franky's Recording Kitchen (God Dethroned, Asphyx, Severe Torture) in 2016. Coverart by Roberto Toderico (Asphyx, Soulburn, Sinister). The booklet contains many rare pics and an exculsive in depth interview done by Pim Blankenstein (ex Lords of Metal journalist and Officium Triste vocalist).
