About Us
Alternative Vision started off as a website where I (Trigger) could show the world my photography but it wasn’t long before the website turned into a vastly growing, long running music webzine that focuses on any music whithin the alternative music world. We cover the latest gig and CD reviews along with exclusive photos of bands and interviews with bands.
