Inspired by an anonymous literary quote “Every hour wounds, but the last one kills.”, Every Hour Kills is a power house ensemble featuringex-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’s birth began 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 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 studio over the years with Sacha Laskow leading the pack’s song writing to collaborate and create an extreme sound for new fans that ranges from those familiar with heavy weights such as Soilwork, Sevendust, Meshuggah to electronic music and even rock radio friendly tunes. “The key is blending all those genres and influences into a cohesive style.” commentsLaskow. “All the tracks we have completed at this time, 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 in summer 2015, EHK’s is excited to set their metal scene on fire performing shows in their home base of Calgary, AB and beyond.
