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.


Lento - Icon (2011)

This is heavy and slow and sludgy and apocalyptic and fucked up and atmospheric and...Well,Lento's new release is simply a fine piece of post-sludge-drone-call it whatever you want. Things are simple,if you liked their previous and their collaboration with Ufomammut just go for it.
The album is going to be released in April 1st,but since you can stream it and download it for free from their site I don't think it's a problem to post it here as well.

Enjoy! or Enjoy!


Take A Look:


  1. We're excited to be promoting a gig for Lento in Bristol on 16 April:

  2. London gig is on 15 April with Latitudes and Terminal Sound System at The Unicorn, Camden Road. And it's free!
