Biography

Yerevan, Armenia (1998 – present)

AlterEgo was formed in Yerevan, Armenia in 1998 by Edgar Barseghyan (vocal, guitar, keyboards, music, lyrics). Many changes took place in the band during the first years. Many young Armenian musicians played in AlterEgo in the short period of 1998-2000. These members both beginners and established rock musicians from other Yerevan bands, including Suren Sargsyan (bass, back-vocal, keyboards) and Koryun Bobikyan (drums, violin). In December 2005 Alexander Kochikyan (guitar, violin) joined the band.

During the last years AlterEgo played in the Rock Club, participated in many large festivals, such as Rock’NPAK ‘98, Love Summer 2000, Pacific I, II, Rock Against AIDS, International Aerials ‘04 in Holland.

The main concept of the first In Conflict (2006) album is the battle of ego and alter ego. The first three songs (Alter Ego, Midday, Soldier) are the commencement of the way and a search for a style. Inspired by the music of the ’60s, they sound very plain and sincere. The last three compositions (Winter Blind, 87 Voices Of The Sun, Rishikesh) are surely more serious, with richer sound. These are the songs, the melodies and structures that brightly express the confrontation of contrasts, using the delicate sounds of violin, flute and piano, alternating with heavy guitar riffs, hard rock sound and angry vocals, roaring out the words of kindness and love.
