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.


Deepspacepilots - Deepspacepilots (2011)

Before I say anything about this one, I would like to thank yeoldstinkeye for recommending it to me. I haven't heard anything by these guys from Chicago before (I think they released an EP back in 2007) so it caught me by surprise. Also I find quite disappointing the fact that I didn't see it anywhere on the web but yeoldstinkeye's top 20 list for this year.So I'll keep the mystery on and I'm not going to write anything about it. If you consider yourselves fans of either stoner and doom or psych and you like a very small touch of ambient in your listenings then you HAVE TO check this out.

Take A Look:


  1. I believe this is not due for release until January 31st, so there's plenty of time for people to get on board before next year's polls!

  2. been out since late summer or early fall. they are recording new stuff though from what I've read.

  3. Thanks for this gem !
    I never heard of them before !

  4. It was leaked, not out. Official release Jan 31. Looking forward to more though.
