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.


Backwoods Payback - Momantha (2011)

Whenever I see a Small Stone Rec. release, I know it's going to be a quality one. This label never disappoints me. So when I saw Backwoods Payback's new album, I knew it's going to be goood.... What we have here is a lot of big, fuzzy, stoner riffs by Mike Cummings and Rylan Caspa accompanied by the heavy drum-hits of Steve Curtiss and "groovified" by Jessica Baker's fat bass lines. Mike's passionate vocals is a great plus and give the music a big soul. Mostly clean and melodic (with some screams once in a while), Mike's heart wrenching, bad-ass, bluesy voice makes the album more human, in a way that you can feel his passion while singing. And this is something that distinguishes Backwoods Payback from a lot of other stoner bands.
