Yasutoshi Yoshida a.k.a GOVERNMENT ALPHA is one of the hottest and harshest of the young Japanese artists looking to fill the shoes of the old-timers like Hijokaidan, Merzbow, Incapacitants, Masonna and so on. Government Alpha stands out above the heap of noise coming out of Japan. His label Xerxes has released countless cassettes and CD-rs from artsists like Facialmess, Napalmed, Skin Crime, OVMN, Knurl, S.Isabella, Lasse Marhaug, T.A.D.M., Astro, Kapotte Muziek and many more. "Extremely harsh noise that changes enormously from track to track, and also changes within each track, into several different experiences. Reminiscent of a combination of Merzbow, with his rumbling, crushing noises that cycle, and KK Nulls penchant for high pitched, piercing scree via guitar. A satisfying, punishing listen, quality extreme noise for those who know the difference and need the real stuff. Government Alpha delivers, and this is some of the best." -- Manifold Records (...). I think there left still some physical CD copies, so If someone want to buy it with low price write  HERE .
