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.


No Anchor - Real Pain Supernova (2011)

I believe that most of the blog's fellow readers, you're bass-worshipers... So No Anchor must be what you're looking for. Based in Brisbane, Australia these crazy guys released their fourth album last spring. The "weird" thing about them is that the band consists of one drummer and two bassists (note : I plan to post a band with three bassists...). And they don't need a guitar in my opinion. The heavily distorted bass works fine in their case. They describe their music as doom sludge but they're more than that. They incorporate post-rock and post-hardcore elements as well as noise and drone. The result is successful and a very interesting one, connecting all the gaps among these genres. The album in its whole is tight, groovy, fucked-up (in a good way..), chaotic and unique in a way that I can't find something to compare it with. I wonder if your ears can handle its raw, intense heaviness...
*Thanks to the band for coming in touch.

Download it by paying anything you want from their bandcamp page.
