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.


Sigmun - Land of the Living Dead (2011)

Few days ago I received a mail from Sigmun which made me really happy because these guys are from Indonesia and as far as I remember I don't think I've heard anything coming from this country (I should dig more into their scene) so I got excited to listen this one.

Sigmun are a four-piece band from Bandung, Indonesia formed in 2008. They started as Loud but they changed their name ,due to issues with another band, to Sigmun taken by Sigmund Freud. This mini release features two tracks ("Red Blood Sea" and "Land Of The Living Dead") of surprisingly good heavy blues rock with bits of psych in it. They are influenced by Zeps and Sabbath as well as from more contemporary bands of heavy rock (and not only actually. In "Red Blood Sea" eg. guitar reminds me of 16 Horsepower). I could easily think that they're a band of the growing Swedish heavy rock scene. I hope that they release a full album soon. Check them out! (and read their bio's info, they have some quite interesting views about music).
