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.


Sigiriya - Return To Earth (2011)

Now what can I say about this one... Most of you have heard it and know what is all about. I didn't mean to post it since all the major blogs/sites did it and wrote about it better than I ever could do. On the other hand it's one of my top albums for this year so it's good to be posted here too. Fortunately I didn't make the "mistake" many people did. I didn't hear it having in mind that Sigiriya is 4/5 Acrimony. And believe the satisfaction I got from listening to it, was bigger than life. An absolutely great album with awesome, thick, well-worked compositions and some of the best riffs you ever heard. Less psych-oriented than Acrimony were but this more straight-forward attitude works just fine!! "Return To Earth" is a brilliant stoner rock album either you're an old-timer stoner fan or just a "newly-born". These guys are "big" either as Acrimony or Sigiriya. And not only musically but for a hundred reasons more. Sincerity and dignity is two of them.
