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.


Dead Skeletons - Dead Magick (2011)

Coming from Iceland, Dead Skeletons released their debut album "Dead Magick" few months ago. Quite a long time before their release, they created a mysterious mist around their name by putting out a lot of their songs on youtube accompanied by mysterious, occult videos which fitted perfectly with their music. The album came to confirm my "suspicions" that they're an amazing band and "Dead Magick" is one of the best albums of the year. Based on dark psychedelia and some industrial touches, they created a wonderful spiritual auditory experience. Using repetitive rhythms, occult elements, chanting vocals and haunting melodies, they take you to a trip in your mind's mystical consciousness. It's an album which should be heard at once and in repeat, in order to reach Dead Skeletons' altered trance states.
