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.


Pierced Arrows

When Dead Moon disbanded in 2006, Fred Cole and Kathleen Cole formed Pierced Arrows (in 2007) along with drummer Kelly Halliburton. Continuing from where Dead Moon have stopped, they have released (since now) two 7"s and two full albums.

It seems that they are like a good old whiskey. Maturity brings richer taste. You know there are some older bands and musicians who are disbanded, after a while re-united and then disbanded again (and keeps going)... Release a couple of records, play some shows and stuff where their only purpose is to gain some more money and live some of their past fame.

Well fuck them! These guys have nothing to do with this. They continue to offer us some fine pieces of dark, heavy garage punk played with passion and energy. And here you'll find some of the coolest tightest grooviest bass lines out there. Both their albums (as well as their 7"s) are equal awesome to me. Nothing more, nothing less.

If you like some garage punk for the summer, just check them out. If you are into Dead Moon's stuff, just check them out. If you don't know who Dead Moon are, just make your self a favor and dig them. Cheers!
