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.


Backdraft – This Heaven Goes To Eleven (2011)

Sweden's Backdraft released earlier this year their third album "This Heaven Goes To Eleven". Their previous two were great ones moving in southern metal paths with this vintage touch which we're coming across very often (especially when we deal with bands coming from Sweden). In their new album I thing they became more eclectic or allow me to say more "mainstream". It seems to me that they're trying to reach a wider audience. Don't get me wrong, it's a good album. Good flow, catchy songs that stuck in your head, southern rock's influences are still present but they're having more hard and "melodic" elements in them. It's something you'll put on your player to listen a lot of times but it's not going to get you hooked. Anyway if you're into traditional hard rock then Backdraft will be great for your ears...
