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.


Bloodiest - Descent (2011)

Bloodiest is a Chicago-based post-metal/doom act and they consist of members/ex-members of bands like Yakuza, 90 Day Men, Atombombpocketknife, Circle of Animals, Follows, Lying in States, Minsk and Sterling. Descent is their debut album released few months ago by Relapse. I would describe their music as repetitive, minimalistic, doom-influenced post-metal and while it isn't as heavy as you possibly wanted, it creates an absolutely gloomy, dense atmosphere. There aren't any dull or bad moments in this one, only epic moments of dark beauty. The term atmospheric is quite controversial and I have to say that when I see it in a band's description, I'm scared a little bit. Fortunately in this case my fear didn't stop me from hearing "Descent". And I was totally rewarded. This is what I call "atmospheric".
