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.


Maurfahr - Good Dirt (2000)

Maurfahr was a Swedish band formed back in 1996. They released a couple EPs and one album called "Good Dirt". They also made a two-track split with Suma in 2006.  As you understand this periods I dig and re-listen records from the late 90's - early 00's era. A lot of great releases were made back then which many of them are now forgotten or neglected and it's good to remember them, Now about the "Good Dirt".. Another good stoner release from the decade's beginning featuring 12 high enjoyable groovy tracks for any stonerheads out there.


You can also download their split with Suma (as well as Suma's two other splits of the "trilogy") from here. Thanks to Riez!


  1. I know this album and it is really a nice one. That two-track split with Suma is the second of three split 7" singles Suma has made. The first one was a split with Bastinado and the third one was with Texas Motherfuckers. The artwork of these split singles are stunning! I've posted these split singles here: http://insane-riez.blogspot.com/2009/05/3-suma-split-singles.html

  2. Yeah it's a really good one. I added the link for downloading their splits in the post. Thanks for the links Riez.
