Every Hour Kills comes from the same town as the famous ice hockey team Calgary Flames. Every Hour Kills is as Calgary Flames hard-hitting but there stops the similarities. Every Hour Kills is a modern metal project that has, in its many iterations, taken the local and international scenes by force. After going silent for a few years, Every Hour Kills has a new EP on the horizon, the aptly titled Re:Awaken. The album will be out October 9th. Every Hour Kills is for fans of Soilwork, In Flames, Starset, Bring Me The Horizon, Veil Of Maya.
The first single is Veiled Aurora is according to Headbanger Review, «The song has an amazing feel to it that is uplifting and empowering at the same time and it makes you feel like could run a marathon and finish first place».
In the 22nd century, mankind is faced with a difficult decision to sacrifice part of itself to save the other. Each song on Re:Awaken tells the story of an individual existing in this fragmented future; their struggle to exist amidst the chaos of forces of the elite alien race and the constant encroaching tide of technology. Every Hour Kills shares the evolution of this EP compared to the last:
«With every release, we are trying to push ourselves technically, in the writing and thematically. We aren’t limited to any particular genre or style, whatever feels right and comes out is allowed to happen – whether that be a blast beat or a guitarless synthwave section».
The introductory single of the album, Veiled Aurora features guest vocals Shaley Bourget Of Dayshell, Of Mice & Men & guest guitar solo Morgan Reid of Bloodshot Dawn. The first track on the EP provides a heavy, angular opening with an uplifting melody to signify the struggle and contrast mankind faces in the newly developing world.
Re:Awaken includes 4 tracks and instrumental mixes of each one, also Included is a high-quality illustrated storybook by Splice Comics to supplement the lyrical and visual themes of the band. Every Hour Kills mixes djenty guitar work with electronic undertones, finished off with a variety of vocals gracing a wide range. They are recommended for fans of Soilwork, In Flames, and Starset.
Every Hour Kills is a powerhouse ensemble featuring the core of ex-Divinity / Enditol guitarist Sacha Laskow, bassist Brent Stutsky (ex-Breach of Trust), along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (ex-Out of Your Mouth).
Every Hour Kills was built to challenge the idea of what defines a band. Rather, the group sees itself as a constantly evolving musical collective; guest vocalists and soloists across the songs bring their own unique artistry and elevate the collective impact of Every Hour Kills’ brand. The lyrics, artwork, visuals, and themes all look toward the future, asking the key postmodern question of how will emerging technology and our humanity progress and co-exist?
