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.


Jeremy Irons & the Ratgang Malibus - Bloom (2011)

One more band coming from Sweden, Jeremy Irons & the Ratgang Malibus are a heavy rock quartet and "Bloom" is their second album which is an excellent rich blend of 70's hard rock, psychedelia and a progressive touch where is needed. They aren't such a big fans of 70's fuzz but they stay in a more haze and clear melodies with bluesy grooviness and of course under Zep's guidance. An awesome and very enjoyable release, close to the 70's era but following a quite different path from many representatives of the vintage heavy rock sound. You should check them out!

I uploaded also their debut "Elefanta" which you can get it here.
