MAMMOTHOR Releases New LP 'Devotion Lost' & New Video For 'Faith Healer'!


NEW ENGLAND Hard Rock/Metal act Mammothor have released their new LP, DEVOTION LOST, which debuted at #3 on the New England-based Bull Moose charts. The album was recorded at New Alliance Audio in Cambridge, MA (Godsmack, Powerman 5000), mixed and engineered by Kyle Paradis (I Was Awake), and mastered by Jay Frigoletto (Alice in Chains, Shinedown, Tesla, Nonpoint) at MASTERSUITE. DEVOTION is 12 tracks of full-on East Coast Rock fury, becoming the #7 most added album at Metal Radio.

Devotion Lost sees MAMMOTHOR, long a staple in the New England Rock scene who have shared stages with the likes of Living Colour, Saving Abel, Fuel, Powerman 5000, Orgy, Eve 6, Hinder, Ted Nugent and more, vocalist Travis Lowell, Josh Johnson (guitar), Dana Sharpton (guitar), Dusty Mulholland (bass – studio only), and Nick Raby (drums) straying drastically at times from their blues-rock roots and delving into bold, progressive new territory.

Opener "Howling Baying Jackal" recalls classic heavy metal in the vein of Iron Maiden, followed up by "Skin" an edgy alt-metal burner, with a dark, chanting core. The lyrics to "Skin" additionally provided inspiration for the eye-catching album art on Devotion Lost, created by Italian graphic designer Maurizio Piccinelli. The first single "Faith Healer" sees the band settling into a more classic hard-rock style with a tune that’s radio-ready while still maintaining a dark, progressive Metal edge. The back-to-back duo of "Shadows of Oblivion" and "Elusive Engineer" sees Devotion Lost making perhaps the starkest stylistic shift; from screaming vocals and guitar driven heavy metal on "Shadows" to a melodic, moody ballad in the form of "Engineer".

The album is rounded out by "Blood-Soaked Candy Heart", "a twisted love story," according to vocalist Travis Lowell, followed by the band’s re-imagining of their previous track "Tyrannicide", and the crushing, "Pillar of Simeon".

1. Howling Baying Jackal

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
