Calgary modern metal band Every Hour Kills are gearing up for the release of a new EP this October. Known for being a rotating band of sorts with a core songwriting team, EHK challenges the definition of what it means to be a band – while the nature of their music mainly lends itself to the kind of progressive metal you might hear from bands like Veil Of Maya, Spiritbox, or even Periphery.
We’re stoked to bring you the video for new single, “Vacua”, which is a good encapsulation of what the new EP is all about. Give it a spin below and if you like what you hear, stay tuned for more new music from EHK coming very soon.
The band had this to say about the new EP:
“This record is a culmination of a dark, tumultuous fucked up year in the world and in my personal life, as it was for many people around the world. As lucky as I am to still have work and my basic needs met, the emotional rollercoaster still affected me strongly and I ended up unemployed for a period in 2020, and thus this EP was born. It is both more human in that I collaborated more strongly with new songwriters and Jei on vocals, but also more mechanical as I also wrote with the assistance of AI creation tools, and most of the instrumentation is programmed MIDI. I feel like this is my most honest work as a writer, to express what came to mind rather than fit into a box or template of what Every Hour Kills ‘should’ sound like. It may alienate some people but so be it!” – Sacha Laskow – Every Hour Kills
