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.
Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats - Blood Lust (2011)
I highly recommend this one to anyone into doom. Until now it's the best traditional doom release I've heard for this year. A dive into the roots, back to Black Sabbath occult riffing and Coven's horror psychedelia. Cosmic doom at its best. "Blood Lust" has it all. Heaviness, psych-ness, occultism, love for horror movies, organs... I tell you it's perfect. A slow mesmerizing ritual, full of hallucinations, burning witches and death worship into crypts. Plus that it was recorded in a classic vintage equipment, makes it even better. This British trio will definitely haunt your ears. Let them possess you.. Don't miss it. I mean it.
PS: As days passing by, this album cannot leave my player. Until now is in my 5 top releases for this year. Probably it will go straight to number one.
