The Skinny: There’s a new sound exploding out of Calgary, Alberta’s rising metal scene, Every Hour Kills is the new modern melodic metal band featuring ex-Divinity guitarist Sacha Laskow, bassist Brent Stutsky (Breach of Trust), drummer Rob Shawcross (ex- Out Of Your Mouth) along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (Walk As Chaos, Out of Your Mouth, Autobody).
Over the last two years, the band has been busy in the lab working on recording new songs to be unleashed to the masses. Last year saw their first single “Deliver Us” exposed to the world and set the path for their next knock out force Chosen produced by Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Emmure, Of Mice & Men, We Can As Romans).
“It was an awesome experience working with an outside producer this time, especially one as talented as Joey. Usually we’ve done everything ourselves, so it was really interesting getting an outside perspective from someone we respect. We are all beyond stoked with the results; Joey definitely added some of his magic to our vision and took the song up to a higher level. Lyrically the song is basically about rising up in the face of adversity, struggling to make our goals and dreams a reality amidst the chaos of the world and other people trying to drag us down. We are all ‘Chosen’ for something, to take our own path and create our own lives.” comments guitarist Sacha Laskow.
