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

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…
