    Every artist, Band, Rapper, Musician are all alternative as they are all alternative to someone else. The Cure are an alternative to Slayer, Eminem is an alternative to One Direction, Bauhaus is an alternative to Otis Reading, Slipknot are an alternative to Pink, Kanye is an alternative to OMD, Buddy Holly is an alternative to Kraftwerk, Robbie Williams is an alternative to The Beach Boys, Ozzy Osbourne is an alternative to David bowie, Slade are an alternative to Greenday and so fourth. This tag is about as useful as a chocolate fireguard. :P

    The people who use this tag should be thrown off Tacoma Narrows Bridge #2. No, make that Tacoma Narrows Bridge #3, #2 is too nice for them.

    It is delight to announce Autharktos´ brand new issue Hellanschauung is out now. It continues to trudge across the landscapes of psycho-acoustic, drone, experimental electronic, noise, ambient, found sound, sound-art, glitched-out seeds, improvised music and many more compartments. These sounds are permeated with "errors", "dysfunctional" elements as flipsides of the artist`s playfulness and irony. As with previous albums so far the release can be downloaded at following sites:
