NEW ENGLAND’S MAMMOTHOR RELEASES ‘DEVOTION LOST’, NEW LYRIC 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. 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 most stark 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”.

Darius Rucker Hits $1 Million in Support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

DARIUS RUCKER HITS $1 MILLION IN SUPPORT OF ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL® WITH EIGHTH ANNUAL “DARIUS AND FRIENDS” BENEFIT CONCERT AT HISTORIC RYMAN AUDITORIUM

Nine years after first pledging his support to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and the thousands of children the healthcare institution treats, Darius Rucker and his many friends have surpassed the $1 million fundraising mark following the music superstar’s sold-out eighth annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert, sponsored by A.O. Smith, on Monday night. This year’s concert, auction and golf tournament alone raised $402,000 for St. Jude, breaking the previous year’s record and bringing the cumulative total raised for all years to $1.2 million.

“You can’t help but be moved by the amazing work that St. Jude does,” says Rucker. “To raise this kind of money and awareness for them… for the families that rely on St. Jude, it’s just incredible. I’m so grateful to all our friends who came out and donated their time to be on the show– and Brooks & Dunn for surprising me onstage! Just wow!”

With tens of thousands swirling around downtown Nashville, Rucker hosted his own superstar gathering, welcoming surprise guests Brooks & Dunn, young hitmakers Dan + Shay, Luke Combs and Michael Ray, John Oates of legendary pop duo Hall & Oates and KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer, Paul Sanchez and more than 2,400 fans to the sold-out event, making its debut at historic Ryman Auditorium.

“It’s always so cool to sing here,” Ronnie Dunn told the crowd after singing “Red Dirt Road” with Kix Brooks and Rucker. “It’s like a spiritual experience. I guess that’s why they call it the Mother Church.”

Brooks & Dunn finished off their appearance with “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” with Brooks pulling a fan on stage to dance with him, before hot-footing it back across the street to Bridgestone Arena where the Nashville Predators were hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup.

“I’m blown away right now,” Rucker said as the duo departed. “They left the hockey game to come play for you!”

Darius and Friends has become the unofficial kickoff to CMA Music Festival week in downtown Nashville over the years. Drawing both new acts and veteran superstars over the years, Rucker always gives the fans a party experience – though 2017’s after-party on the street with Predators fans was hard to beat.

This year included Dan + Shay, Combs and Ray – who all scored hits with their debut singles. Combs, who just celebrated multiweek No. 1 “Hurricane,” made his appearance just a few hours after his national television debut on “TODAY” on Monday morning. Ray sang his own hit, “Kiss You in the Morning,” then joined Rucker on a cover of Randy Travis’ “Forever and Ever, Amen.” And Thayer helped Rucker live out a childhood dream with a cover of KISS’ epic anthem, “Dr. Love.”

“When I was a kid, I would stack up cans of corn and peas and put a flashlight on top, grab a broom and sing KISS songs until my mother made me stop,” Rucker told the crowd.

Oates performed a historic piece, Al Jolson’s “Me and My Gal,” first played on the Ryman stage in 1929, then joined Rucker on “Sara Smiles,” a vintage Hall & Oates hit. “I had a girlfriend in the fifth grade and I loved her,” Rucker admitted. “She moved to Florida and my sister used to make fun of me because I was crying about it. And I would go in my room and sing this song for hours because it made me feel better.”

The event has been sold out year after year, raising funds through concert tickets sales, a silent auction and annual golf tournament, hosted by the free-swinging Rucker and his band. Friends performing with Rucker in the past have included Luke Bryan, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum and Kenny Rogers, among many others.

Rucker, a longtime philanthropist over his more than two decades as a hit-maker and singer-songwriter in the music industry, made a commitment to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® after touring the campus in 2008. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions. Events like this help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Additional sponsors of “Darius and Friends” includes CDW/Intel, GE, Hutton, Maverick, CAA and UMG/Capitol Nashville. For more information please visit www.DariusRucker.com.

Rucker recently hit a personal milestone when his latest country single, “If I Told You,” reached the Top 5 on the country radio charts. “If I Told You,” the first offering from his forthcoming fifth album for Capitol Records Nashville, is now at No. 2 and poised to become his eighth No. 1 country single. Rucker will appear Wednesday night at the CMT Awards, where he’s up for CMT Performance of the Year for “Pink Houses” with John Mellencamp. He’ll also join Jason Aldean, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum and others in a tribute to the late Gregg Allman. He’ll also be performing at CMA Fest on Sunday night, helping shut down the four-day event in downtown Nashville.

About Darius Rucker
Rucker first attained multi-Platinum status in the music industry as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of GRAMMY award-winning Hootie & the Blowfish. Since re-introducing himself to the world as a country artist, he has released four consecutive albums to top the Billboard Country albums chart and earned a whole new legion of fans. In 2014, Rucker won his third career GRAMMY award for Best Solo Country Performance for his 4x Platinum selling cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel,” off his album, True Believers. Rucker’s first two country albums, Learn To Live and Charleston, SC 1966 produced five No. 1 singles including “Come Back Song,” “This,” “Alright,” “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” and “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.” Southern Style, his fourth studio country album, features his latest No. 1 single “Homegrown Honey,” co-written by Rucker, label mate Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum and Nathan Chapman. Rucker’s new single, “If I Told You” is on country radio now and is the first off his forthcoming fifth album for Capitol Nashville. For more information and tour dates visit www.dariusrucker.com.

RETCHED – RELEASES CLASSIC ALBUM “THE OVERLORD MESSIAH”

As you know, we here at Domain Cleveland are suckers for the classic metal sound, and yes I am talking about the Maiden, Metallica, Accept, Overkill kinda vibe. Then this fell into our lap, the band RETCHED. A breathe of fresh air with that tinge of the smell of the mid 80’s thrash sound.

Digging into this release “The Overlord Messiah” which was actually recorded in 1988 and just recently released this classic masterpiece.  This  release has all the feel and vibe from the day it was recorded and if you are into that sound you will really enjoy this. When I listened to this I can hear the Maiden/Priest influence on the track Metal Knights.  Through this release I hear the sounds of Grim Reaper, which has that smooth melodic metal vibe.  Really digging this.  I wish this was out back in the day, it would have been cranked in my Pioneer stereo in my car blasting down the street bringing unpleasure to the old farts in the older Cleveland neighborhoods.

Originally from Fresno Ca. this is a classic hard metal sound with strong Iron maiden and Black Sabbath roots. The band was formed in 1988 but soon after that around the end of the same year broke up due to very bad management.This new digital remastered version is now re-released to the world after years of many set backs.
