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.


Thou - To The Chaos Wizard Youth EP & The Archer And The Owle EP (2011)

Thou is a sludge/doom band from Baton Rouge, Lousiana and they are one of the most productive and active bands in the scene (that doesn't have an impact in their music's quality of course). Since now they have released a big number of full albums, EPs and splits. Here you can find their two new EPs for this year (they also released a split with Cower).
First class harsh sludge which fans of Eyehategod and Rwake are going to appreciate. The instrumentation brings in mind some of Electric Wizard's and Reverend Bizarre's gloomy doom atmosphere.  I liked more "The Archer and The Owle" because it brings more dark, nihilistic vibes up to the surface.
I really appreciate them as a band and I recommend you to check their previous works too (most of their tracks you can check them through their website).
