MAMMOTHOR Drops a Brand New Single “BURY THE MOTIVE"

Mammothor has not let the pandemic stop their musical output. With a busy show schedule taking shape for 2022, including shows with Drowning Pool, Ill Nino, Hed(PE) and Sumo Cyco, the band has been busy producing new material and playing around the Northeast. Mammothor entered The Halo Studio in Windham, ME to record with Kevin Billingslea (Lamb of God) and Chillhouse Studios in Charlestown, MA with Will Holland (Fall Out Boy) for recording and tapped Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed, Shadows Fall), at Planet Z in Hadley, MA to mix and master.

"BURY THE MOTIVE" is the eighth track of their latest album. Written by Josh Johnson (guitar) and Travis Lowell (vocals), the single launched worldwide on May 27th, on all major streaming platforms, and now, the music video is ready for the fans. The song reflects on the state of gun violence and school shootings that has been plaguing our society for decades now. In an ironic twist, on the day of the single release, another school shooting took place. The video reflects on the issue by way of an android who, after becoming sentient, witnesses the senseless violence that humans commit on one another, rejecting the notion that “being human” is anything to be proud of, and rebelling against its maker.


We lost the war today / The headline's the same /She'll never make the grade / Bullet in her brain /

Forgotten, buried in an early grave / A face she couldn't recognize /A stranger's hand would take

her life

Bury the motive / Let no one out alive / Unhinged, and devoted to the marks within the sights

Our fingers point with blame / Though we can't explain / He tried to save the day

Now he's gone away / Just a number, left without a name / A face he couldn't recognize /A

stranger's hand would take his life

Liars, our leaders leave the people blind / Ready, armed, and focused on exploiting the loss of life

Clenched fists / Closed eyes / Coloring an open canvas /Mind blank, mesmerized / Bodies fall /

Hear their cries/ One more trip around the sun /Farewell, so long, goodbye / We, The People, blind


With nearly a decade of shows in the heavy metal/hard rock scene, Mammothor has toured and opened for heavy hitters MEGADETH, KORN, THREE DAYS GRACE, HED(PE), SALIVA, BUCKCHERRY, as well as 750,000+ streams on YouTube and current average of 41,000+ monthly listeners on Spotify.
