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.


Ice Dragon - The Sorrowful Sun (2011)

2011 becomes better and better as far the music part concerned (cause in all other aspects of life is quite fucked up). I feel that when it's the time to put out my best releases list for this year, I'll have a big fat problem. Ice Dragon's second album, makes this problem even bigger because it's one more work to consider where in the hell to place it.
Ice Dragon could be the bastard child of Black Sabbath and Electric Wizard. You probably noticed it from their first album (which was absolutely amazing!). As the band states "The Sorrowful Sun" is "concise epic, at once Neolithic, futuristic, electric, and acoustic". The acoustic parts make the album even heavier and trippy, believe it or not. They're giving this retro feeling. Make the music sound HEAVIER but not monolithic. Less than 40min are enough for these guys to blow your head with a big bong, give the world a fuck off and get lost in a psych ecstatic state. Highly recommended!
