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.


Sharp Nine - Untimed (1995)

Time for a trip to Seattle's scene via Sweden. No matter how much I searched for these guys, nothing was found except that they're Swedish and this is their only release. Nine tracks of quality grunge in the veins of Soundgarden and very close to Seattle's sound generally. Well-structed songs, great instrumental parts and some "always-reliable" Swedish guitar play.
As a mate said: "The gritty Seattle sound is authentically blended with typical Scandinavian guitar expertise making Sharp Nine's Untimed equal to or better than Pearl Jam's latest effort."
