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.


Purple Mercy - Private Pleasures (2011)

I don't know how many of you had checked California's Purple Mercy's same-titled debut album two years ago... It was a fine sludgy doom-crushing one. Well forget about what you heard back then. Now they're like a completely different band. "Private Pleasures" is a 70's psych influenced release with a lot of swirling, fuzzed-out guitars, a pinch of drones from time to time and some desert rock groove packed in a spaced-out outfit. I really liked their first one and I definitely love this one. A worth-checking release which caught me by surprise (since I was expecting something completely different).

You can download it from their bandcamp page by paying anything you want.
