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.


Eggnogg - Moments in Vacuum (2011)

Another album which while I consider it as one of the best releases for 2011, passed quite unnoticed by a lot of people...Coming from Brooklyn, NY they released their third work this year (it's their second full album). First thing noticed is that the band made a great progress as far as their compositions concerned but also when it comes to their playing as a band which became even tighter. The album consists of eight tracks with only two of them have duration smaller than eight minutes. I'd describe their music as a blend of doom rock with a lot of 70's hard rock forms and of course the psych elements cannot pass unnoticed... "Moments In Vacuum" is divided in a way to two parts with "Nebuchadnezzar" as a bridge or a connector between them. Either you like doom or not, you're going to at least appreciate this release. I suggest you to hear it as whole 'cause you'll catch better the band's spirit and explorations. I can't wait for even more things by them...
