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.


Deaf By Stoning - Burning Down EP (2011)

Deaf By Stoning are a four-piece band from Nijmegen, Netherlands formed in 2009. Almost a month ago they released their first work, a 7-track EP called "Burning Down". I think there is no need to explain that these guys' music is stoner...Just look at their name, cover etc. Overall the EP is a high-energy, played with passion stoner work following the paths of Kyuss and QOTSA. It has some really great moments like the "Chinese Girl" and "Burning Down" while the last two tracks, which seem to be live, sound far better proving that they must give some really good live performances. I would like the production to be much heavier and fatter but overall is a good straight-forward stoner release played with soul.
*Thanks to Jeroen from DbS for coming in touch.

You can download it for free through their bandcamp page.
