A few Altona members later reappeared in the obscure band Dirty Dogs. (On the picture is thrash metal band from Turkey with a same name.) 2. ALTONA was founded in 1996, and initial compositions were based on a pure thrash metal sound. They performed in many venues and festivals between 1997 and 2000, whil e recording a first EP "Alarm of the End" in 1999. In 2001, they attended Rockstation festival in Ankara, and were broadcast on TRT's Rock Market television show. From 2000 onward, the musical route started to change, toward more progressive heavy metal, with eastern themes and thrash rhythms.
In 2004, compositions from this period resulted in a studio album simply titled "Altona". Initially nine tracks were planned for this album, but to retain musical integrity, all older compositions were removed - leaving five compositions and an intro and outro. Each track on the album has it's own theme, a story in itself. A good example is "City of Zeugma", the true story about a city that is now mostly underwater. The year 2008 will see live performances of Altona and hopefully a second studio album. 3. Altona is a hardcore band from Stouffville, ON.
