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.


Highway Child - Highway Child (2011)

Third release for Highway Child from Copenhagen and unfortunately their last one 'cause from what I read in their facebook page they split up... More southern rock/blues driven than their previous ones, it has a well-built groovy rhythm section, great twisty guitar solos and vocals full of soul. Their 60's/70's rock influences are present too but filtered through a more country prism. In the six years' existence they released three amazingly good albums which makes them one of Denmark's best bands in my opinion. I want to believe that the reason they split up is to move in somewhere in Louisiana and come back after a while with another great release...
