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.


Cosmonauts Day - Paths of The Restless (2011)

"Paths Of The Restless" is the first full album by Moscow's Cosmonauts Day which unfortunately I didn't have the time to check it before 2011 ends... I'm impressed by the work these guys have done here. Their compositions are tight, extremely well-written and inspired. Their performance is moving in excellent levels too, building a deep, complex at times (but still easily enjoyable) structure that won't leave anyone untouched. Their music is described as space-driven post metal (sludge influences are less here). But unlike the majority of bands of this kind, their work is inspired and special - something hard to find in the post-scene these days (in my opinion always) - which leads me in the conclusion that Cosmonauts Day will stand out (basically they are already distinguished)  and offer us a lot of excellent points of reference in the future. 
*Thanks to the band for coming in touch.

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