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.


Black Capricorn - Black Capricorn (2011)

Coming from the great island of Sardinia, Black Capricorn - a five piece band - released their self titled album in the middle of this summer. But as a listening, it fits better in this time of year. The band plays some first class stoner-o-doom with a lot of occult (see Electric Wizard) references and of course with the right amount of fuzzed out psychedelia. An hypnotizing doom trip with a lot of good heavy, crunchy, downtuned riffs, clean and clean, lo-fi vocals melted in a droney pot of psych. Great first release for Black Capricorn. If they continue their route like that, prepare yourself for a mind-blowing sophomore release.
