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.


Rotors To Rust - All That's Heavy (1994) & Bitter Fountain EP (1996)

Rotors To Rust were a stoner band (with the right amount of grunge/alt rock pinches) from Portland, formed in the early-mid '90s by : Ed Gaines (vox,guitar), Jason Grosso (bass) and Doug Wood (drums). They released one album, an EP and one 7" (Temple Of The Sun/God Mask, 1998). Here you can find their album "All That's Heavy" and the EP "Bitter Fountain". Great groovy, heavy music. Another one from my Stoner's Forgotten Children Mixtape...

Take A Look:
