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.


Traitors Return To Earth - Smoke Screen EP (2011)

Although this killer EP was posted in almost all the major heavy blogs, I didn't check it. With so many releases is quite difficult to catch them all. Thanks to Justin Ringle (TRTE's drummer) who came in touch, I had the chance to give it a listen. And I didn't get disappointed at all. Five epic mid-tempo sludge/stoner dynamites which is enough to blow your head off but not enough to satisfy my appetite for down-tempo heavy riffage (its duration is just 31min). Nothing innovative for these guys from Columbus, Ohio, just some good old stoner/sludge played from the depths of their swampish hearts. Loud and heavy as I like it. After the release of the EP, band's bassist departed from the band but I want to believe that the 3 remaining mates will continue what they started 'cause a brilliant start like this one must be continued. Cheers!

You can download their EP from their bandcamp page by paying anything you want.
