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.


Heavy Lord - Balls To All (2011)

Four years after their third album released, the Dutch band Heavy Lord unleashed their new sludge/doom beast called "Balls to All". Although it's a very good solid album with amazing heavy crushing riffs, I must admit that I liked it the less among their 3 previous works. I think that "Balls to All" is their most technical and mature work but it seems to me that they lost a little bit of their vitality, their spark. I don't say that they're not passionate about their music. Well listen to it and you'll get my point. Even if you find the vocals a little bit annoying in some parts (few people didn't like them), the excellent work in creating eight (sometimes a little bit spacey) monoliths won't disappoint you.
