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.


Bison Machine - Behold! O' Inhabitants Of The Mortar (2012)

One more band coming from Detroit and the first 2012 release I'm posting. "Behold! O' Inhabitants Of The Mortar" is (probably) Bison Machine's first release and it's a four-track EP. It was recorded live and in one take at Groovebox Studios in Detroid. All four tunes are great and they're moving in stoner rock paths and heavy blues routes. Definitely an excellent start for these guys and of course a must-check release!  

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


  1. This is an awesome band and one that is definitely worth listening to. The lead singer Tom Stec has a blues/jazzy voice that can be rated right up there with the best of the best. I love this band and cannot wait to see their next show!!

  2. Pfouuuu waw... Awesome discovery ! I don't understand what they say (my english is so bad) but it's great.

    Thanks for that.
