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.


Monotonix - Not Yet (2011)

If I recall correctly Monotonix are the first Israeli band I post here in Stoned Sun Vibrations. Coming from Tel-Aviv they released their third album "Not Yet" last January. I know that listening to Monotonix from a disc is half the pleasure. You know like eating without smelling... If you have seen what these crazy bastards do in their lives, you caught my metaphor's meaning. But there are people out there (just like me) who never had the chance to catch one of their live shows so we have to compromise with what Monotonix offering us through their albums. So get ready for some really loud, noisy, chaotic, raw punk'n'roll with frenzy, manic guitar riffs and gritty vocals. Although is a great stuff to hear and highly enjoyable, they're songs are not memorable. But who gives a shit anyway? At least not me... It's all about pleasure, energy and having fun. If you have the chance to catch them live, I beg you not to miss them (take a glance at their videos in youtube..). Cheers!
