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.


Orrenda Acciaieria - Orrenda Acciaieria (2011)

Orrenda Acciaieria are an instrumental trio from Como, Italy and they have released their debut through the new label, Cosmic Swamp Records (label's debut release too). The album consists of 8 tracks which are part of three suites ("Il Morbo", "Octopus Vulgaris" and "Lento Per Sigaretta") with a total playing time of 28 minutes. Overall the album has a great heavy groove from the beginning 'til the end based on psych stoner routes. The riffs work great in leading the way while the bass and drums enrich the sound but also build a solid base for guitar to move on it. There are some post-metal (or even progressive) which work only in a positive way for the band. Fans of instrumental stuff are going to love this for sure. Awesome first release for the band as well as for the label too!
*Thanks to Cosmic Swamp Records for coming in touch and I'd like to wish them all the best!

You can visit Cosmic Swamp Records' website for more info about how to buy it (a store will be up soon).
