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.


Pharaoh Overlord - Horn (2011)

"Horn" is Pharaoh Overlord's second release for 2011. I had posted "Out Of Darkness" here a while ago. The direction they took there, really disappointed me. But fortunately "Horn" came after and put my love for these guys back on track. Recorded live at 2010's Space Force Fest. in Lahti, it features four songs with a total duration of 46 minutes. The first two tracks (a cover of Spacemen 3 "Revolution"  and "Laibela") are based in repetitive riffs but Laibela has a more hazy, furious rock burst in its last part which makes it even better. "Solar Stomp" continues with this rock 'n' roll feeling and "Horn" closes in epic glory with "Sky", a spaced-out 13min nervous psych pandemonium which blows your head off. Amazing stuff and I liked it even more after the shock I had with "Out Of Darkness".
