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.


Hazard County Girls - Divine Armor (2006)

"Divine Armor" was the second album these New Orleans' girls released five years ago. I heard their debut "Never No More" years ago but I didn't like it. Few months ago I checked this one and it really got me. Awesome gloomy doom-driven rock with many huge riffs hitting you again and again. This trio really have skill in awakening moody, desperate emotions with their gritty monster riffs, heavily pounded drums and downbeat basslines. The smooth, dark, sometimes ethereal vocals complete the dark atmosphere. It was a pity I missed this album for so many years but it's never late..
