Inspired by an anonymous literary quote “Every hour wounds, but the last one kills.”, Every Hour Kills is a power house ensemble featuring ex-Divinity guitarist Sacha Laskow, bassist Brent Stutsky (ex-Breach of Trust, ex-Death Valley Dolls), drummer Rob Shawcross (ex- Out Of Your Mouth, ex-Autobody, ex-Kobra and The Lotus) along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (Walk As Chaos, ex-Out of Your Mouth, ex-Autobody, ex-the R.A.C.E.).
EHK was born when drummer Rob Shawcross returned from a stint at the PIT in LA and approached Sacha Laskow after his departure from Nuclear Blast signed Divinity. From there, the duo worked together and recruited the best musicians they knew – bassist Brent Stutsky and vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster to complete the line up.
Progressing as a unit of epic, modern, melodic groove Metal with a twist of djent, Every Hour Kills has pushed forward in the studio with Sacha Laskow leading the song writing to collaborate and create a new twist on catchy yet progressive Metal. The material ranges in dynamics and will resonate with fans familiar with heavy weights such as Soilwork, Sevendust, and In Flames, all the way to electronic music and even rock radio friendly tunes.
“The key is blending all those genres and influences into a cohesive style.” comments Laskow. “All the tracks we have done so far, are not written to ‘throwaway’ or do as filler tracks, every song has to have a ‘single’ quality for us to work on it and add it to our set.”
With their debut self-titled EP due for release on September 18th, 2015, EHK’s is excited to set the metal scene on fire performing shows in their home base of Calgary, AB and beyond.
Every Hour Kills plans to continue with their song writing, recording and live appearances in 2015.
