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.


Whitebuzz - Book Of Whyte (2009)

If you don't like Om just pass this post. Whitebuzz is a trio from Hannover and obviously they adore Om and Sleep. Sometimes, I get confused and I think that I'm listening an album which Om never released.

But let's be fair. Nevertheless these guys created a multidimensional album which is a work of good songwriting. They took the sludge from Eyehategod and Sleep,the ritual feeling of Om and added some space attitude to create five monolithic psych jams of over 70min total playing time.
This is music for headphones. You have to be in a certain state of mind in order to join their ceremony. It needs time and intentness of thought to feel and enjoy their music.

Yes it isn't something original and yes it is like Sleep-meets-Om but it isn't a pesky rip-off in any way, just some great long slothful heavy stoner jams that blows your mind.
And since I'm a great fan of Om it surely fits me.Cheers!
