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.


Elder - Dead Roots Stirring (2011)

Elder are back with their second album and what I need to say is wow! I didn't expect these guys to release a work like that. No, it isn't another stoner/doom monster riff-fest like they get us used to. They moved forward in more "progressive" paths creating a 51min cosmic stoner psych-trip in the veins of Colour Haze or even Loose. There is a change in vocals' style too which fits even more in the album's spirit. Elder exceeded all my expectations and putting aside some minor weaknesses, they created their masterpiece. Tunes like "Gemini", "III" and the same-titled "Dead Roots Stirring" are top notch and they are going to stuck in your player for a long time. I bet you'll like it for sure.
*I want to thank yeoldstinkeye, the man behind the great blog A Distant Rumble, for his kindness to share this one with me. Cheers!
