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.


Lvmen - Mondo (2006)

Lvmen is a great Czesch band in the spirit of Neurosis and Isis post-circles but they have anything to do with all these bands which really have me tired of listening to all the same copied things again and again. Lvmen is a hidden gem in our music world and they are far better of all these schemes who try to create contemplative musical suites that supposed to be masterpieces of atmosphere and shit like that. As I read in a review somewhere they're like: "So say Neurosis and Isis had a baby and Talk Talk and Slint had a baby, then those babies met and had a baby, and that baby met the baby of Godspeed and Pg.99 and they had a baby. Thats Lvmen."  This is their third release and if you are into in Pelican,Ocean,Isis I guarantee that you will love them and you'll understand why they are far better.



*Note: The right release date is in post's title,in the file is 2008 which was by mistake.
