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.


Wizard Smoke - The Speed of Smoke (2011)

Hell yeah,this is a great album and I wonder why these guys are unsigned. I think that the band's name says it all about them. Wizard Smoke.
Well,it has it all : psych,stoner,sludge,doooom and it's rock and metal at the same time. Every track is unique and at the same time the whole album is so well-structed and concrete,and with excellent production. The small touches and the emphasis in details here and there (these keyboards are so damn good) complete "The Speed of Smoke" in an excellent way.
It's a brilliant release (better and more advanced from their previous release) and I beseech you guys from labels out there,please sign them. They are far better than many major bands' releases.
"Excuse my exaggeration but this album is so damn fucking good!"

You can get it here or straight from their site
