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.


Chrome Locust - Chrome Locust (1999)

Chrome Locust was a New York's band formed back in 1998. Band's life lasted almost a year but before they split up, they released this awesome album in 1999. Chrome Locust started as a side project of Michael Wildwood (D Generation's drummer), Todd Scofield (aka Todd Youth, D Generation's guitarist. Also played with bands as Murphy's Law, Son Of Sam and Danzig among others) and Jim Heneghan. The result was this s/t album which unfortunately was their first and last work.

These punk rockers know how to play slow-burned heavy music. Downtuned and "sludgy", high-energetic and fast..all in the right time. I doubt if at least one of you not going to like this (relatively) unknown gem of heavy sound. Imagine a jam where Sabbath met MC5 and decided to play in front of a bunch of stoners. Great stuff!

Get ready to violate your repeat button cause album's half-hour length isn't enough to satisfy your needs for heaviness!
