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.



For bands like Consecration I think there is no justice in this world. And that's because quality bands like these guys from Serbia should be known worldwide and labels should stand in line to sign them. Maybe it sounds excessive but I believe that they are at the same level as Isis, God Is An Astronaut and Godspeed You Black Emperor. It's from the few times that I didn't find any negative element in their music, from the heavy parts which hit you like to the more melodic pscych proggy paths. Well, to be honest I lack of words to describe them the right way. Just listen to them and especially their second release which is stronger and really manages to transfer the energy of a live performance inside your room. You can download "Aux" for free from their bandcamp too and ".Avi" for only 3 fucking euros for christ's sake (actually for a great disc like that,it's more like a robbery in Consecration's house).
