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.


Rowsdower - Demo (2011)

Rowsdower are a five-piece band coming from Saint Louis, Missouri and they recently sent me a four-track demo which is really good. I would describe their music as blues-infected stoner rock. But they incorporate a lot of other styles too. For example "Nupital Doom" is moving in more doom-related forms or "Bridge of Sighs" which has a psych vibe. From what I read they work on new material for a full album which definitely I'm going to check 'cause they really have potentials and great song-writing skills. So go check them out...
*Thanks to Zak from Rowsdower for coming in touch.

The band put up their demo for download right here.
