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.


Banda De La Muerte - Banda De La Muerte (2009)

Another awesome band coming from Latin America and specifically from Argentina. Banda De La Muerte released their same-titled album two years ago but I recently found out about it thanks to a usual suspect who tips me lately (thanks V.)... I have to say that I got really into their music after the first couple of listenings. Probably was something in their vocals (I'm not talking about the singing in their native language but in the way Xon is singing) which prevented me from enjoying as much as I wanted. Fortunately after a while I understood that they were as it should be and from this point only pros started to surface. Quality groovy stoner with a pinch of sludge blended with a hardcore/punk - a la Melvins - aggression and of course a whole bunch of coool crunchy riffs.
The guys entered the studio two days ago in order to start the recordings for their second album! Wish them good luck with it!

You can download it by paying anything you want from their bandcamp.
