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.


Slug Lord - Demo (2011)

Slug Lord is a Finnish doom/sludge band. Not much info for these guys except that they're a four piece band. Now from what I found this demo is kind of a bootleg since it isn't an official release by the band, just their 3 tracks which are uploaded in their myspace. The songs' sound is quite good (although they're 160kbps). Three fine and solid compositions full of dirty downtuned guitars, slow-driven atmosphere and interesting female vocals. The band seems at least promising. I really enjoyed the tunes and I'll keep an eye on them. Unfortunately, their singer left the band which is a pity since her way of singing stuck excellent with the rest of the band. I hope they'll find a new singer soon.
