ALTARIA´s story began in the beginning of year 2000 when Marko Pukkila and Tony Smedjebacka decided to form a new outfit. Both musicians have participated in the band called Blindside in the past. Blindside wasn´t active enough, so with the arsenal of few songs and many aspirations, the duo decided to form the new band. At the same time, the search for other members has begun. The first addition was Johan Mattjus, an old auqintance of Marko, whom Pukkila accidently met on a train. Johan´s singing talents were not being used in any band at the time, so ALTARIA was lucky to obtain a great vocalist. Next member to join ALTARIA was a monster guitar player Jani Liimatainen, of Sonata Arctica fame. Jani was excited about joining ALTARIA, which at the time was shaping up as a project. But, what started as fun, quickly turned into a real band, as great songs began to form and live performances were very well received. In the beginning of 2002 there were some scheduling problems with Mattjus, so Jouni Nikula was called to help the band during their 2 live shows. Because the gigs went extremly well and both the audience and the band really liked what they heard, ALTARIA voted for getting Jouni as a permanent member of the band. So, there it was - the first line-up change in ALTARIA´s history.
