As you MAY have noticed, I haven't posted for a while now....for a lot of reasons which I don't find necessary to mention. Anyway I decided to put Stoned Sun Vibrations on hiatus and concentrate my efforts to Downtuned Magazine ('n' Radio). Many of you probably know that Downtuned Mag is dedicated to the Greek heavy rock scene but since I've started Downtuned Radio too, I'm thinking of including posts about releases from all over the world. Apparently I'm going to keep a ratio but we'll see how it'll evolve.
From now on, you can find me on Downtuned Mag. And for any bands interested in reviewing/including them in radio's rotation etc., you can come in touch with me through the contact form over there. As I wrote above. I'll try to keep a ratio and at least in the beginning I'll try to "promote" mostly "smaller", more independent bands that deserve your attention.
So I want to thank each and everyone of you out there who supported, read, promoted and helped this blog. Also a big fat thanks to all the bands which helped SSV in their own way.
That's all for now folks! Thanks again! Maybe SSV will be back someday. Or maybe Downtuned will become better than SSV.... Who knows.
Be well and stay heavy!
PS: Rock Trips Mixtapes will be back soon.... They'll be the only thing posted from now on. Perhaps some other personal comps too.


Brotherhood Of Sleep - Dark As Light (2011)

Welcome to Brotherhood of Sleep! At last the second album of this Greek trio. This release is magnificent. 50 minutes of instrumental stoner/psych/experimental (name it exactly if you can) jams that just burst with glory,powerhouse riffing and excellent musicianship. The guitar explodes like a fuzzy doomish supernova, the bass lines make the music strong as steel with their groovy Sleep-ish vibes,the drums with their creative bits and jazz passages complete the deed and the vocals..fuck it who needs vocals. In my opinion, it's going to be in my best releases' list for this year. If you like Colour Haze, Los Natas (Toba Trance era) and Karma to Burn kind of stuff,you're gonna love this.Cheers!
