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.


Tank86 - Rise (2011)

The Heavy Artillery is back! While "Rise" was released in May, I had the chance to check it a couple of weeks ago. Tank86 deliver us 48min of heavy instrumental madness with their debut album. Either you're doomster or stoner fan or you like anything heavy then you should check it. You will definitely find something suitable for you here. Their riffs take your brain, put it in a blender and mix it up for almost an hour. Their drumming is like a demolition machine inside your house while bass lines feel like earthquake vibes approaching you. From their EPs I was expecting something really good by these guys but this is above my expectations. Fans of instrumental heaviness like Karma To Burn, Capricorns or even bands like Dozer, High On Fire and Monobrow, you found a new band to praise!
