Boston’s Riff Masters  MAMMOTHOR Bring Us “Parasomnia” 

A Perfectly Timed Offering from Their Album 

The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams

Watch the Haunting Video by Jim Foster!

Intentionally timed for Spooky Season, Mammothor’s new single, “Parasomnia,” is the sixth track off their latest album, The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams.  

Frontman Travis Lowell explains “I’ve always had trouble sleeping. When I was a kid, I suffered from wicked night terrors. My parents even took me to do a sleep study, and doctors did a brain scan to make sure nothing was wrong. I would seemingly wake up, but my mind would still be ‘stuck’ in a nightmare, even though I was walking around with my eyes open. It was terrifying.”

The video was filmed (in a befittingly torturous setting) and edited by Jim Foster of Red 13 Studios (Godsmack, Daughtry, Queensryche, Whitechapel).   Travis Lowell shares “I have worked with Red 13 a few times between Mammothor and my mainstream rock project, Ashes to Embers. One thing they are always good at: location scouting! In this case, we were originally looking for a setting in a large home or mansion…when that didn’t pan out, Red 13 pulled a ‘plan b’…an old, abandoned milk factory! Filming at the factory was a bit of a challenge, mainly because safety has to be a priority while natural lighting is almost non-existent and everything for filming has to be powered by batteries or generators. It was a challenge for the team, for sure, but the results were phenomenal. I’m not sure if the milk factory was haunted or not, but I may or may not have heard some ghostly ‘moos’ from the shadows…”

Special effects artist Amanda Schaffer pulled double-duty, doing the makeup on the dream demon, (who was played by Edgar Troncoso, bassist from Boston-based band Prospect Hill) and starring in the “Parasomnia” video, as well.  

This track, “Parasomnia,” marks a departure from Mammothor’s typically heavy, driving sound. Bathed in atmosphere, the song feels very dream-like. The music was written by bassist Lori Rulfs and the vocals/lyrics were written by singer Travis Lowell. The band recorded instruments for 2021’s The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams with Kevin Billingslea (Lamb Of God) at The Halo Studio in Windham, ME and vocals at Chillhouse Studios with Will Holland (Fall Out Boy). The band tapped Zeuss (Rob Zombie, HATEBREED, Shadows Fall) at Planet-Z in Hadley, MA to mix and master.

to create The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams, of which Metal Hammer says, “proves that hard rock and heavy metal are far from over.”

Bored with the current popular rock music of today, Mammothor strives to return the essence of classic rock sensibility, the thunderous hard rock, heavy metal riffs, and guitar shred of the 80’s, and rounded out with the passion and versatility of 90’s alternative. Mammothor’s inspirations vary from Megadeth to Iron Maiden, and Faith No More to Soundgarden, which makes their music very multi-faceted.


With nearly a decade of live shows in the heavy metal/hard rock scene, Mammothor has toured with and opened for heavy hitters such as Megadeth, Korn, Three Days Grace, HED(PE), Saliva, and Drowning Pool, garnering over a million streams on YouTube and currently averaging over 27,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. The band is currently in the studio recording its fourth album and playing shows.
