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.


Viaticum - Trip Me Tender EP (2011)

Here is some fine space / psych rock from Switzerland. Viaticum are a four-piece band and few months age they released their debut EP featuring six tracks with total play-time of 46 minutes. These guys are definitely great players and know how to create excellent kosmik tunes. They're getting heavy from time to time but also have great lost-in-space melodies. The tracks' structure is amazingly good and they don't have a single moment of disappointment or boredom. Vocals work great too. This is a "mature" release showing us that Viaticum know exactly what they're doing. A band with great potentials for the future and a release which is going to be loved by all space-heads out there. No doubt about that!

You can download "Trip Me Tender" from their bandcamp page for free.
