New melodic modern metal band Every Hour Kills, inspired by anonymous quote “Every hour wounds, but the last one kills”, are something really fresh and interesting. They will share their Corona experience with us today.
Hi! How are you doing during corona outbreak?
2020 was a dark, tumultuous fucked up year, for pretty much everyone. 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 unexpectedly unemployed for a period in 2020. Thus, the Every Hour Kills “Vacua” EP was born.
It is both more “human” in that I collaborated more strongly with new songwriters and Jei Doublerice 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 songwriter, to express what comes to mind rather than fit into a box or template of what EHK “should” sound like.
What have you cancelled/postponed due coronavirus?
Just living normal life, like most everybody else.
How the global coronavirus pandemic is directly impacting bands?
In pretty much every way possible.
How are you keeping your fans during this chaotic period?
I’m not sure that I am, but I’m continuing to make music at the highest level I can make it.
What will metal look like when we re-emerge from isolation?
I think a lot of great music will be made.
Who will suffer the most after all: musicians, organizers promoters…
What is your isolation soundtrack?
I listen to a lot of music, check out my playlist on Tidal: https://tidal.com/browse/playlist/5fa369f1-c173-466d-942e-4b4fb161a7ec
Besides gigs, what/whom do you miss the most?
Moon Over My Hammy at Denny’s
Do you have any rehearsals during quarantine? If yes, how do they look like?
I don’t play live.
Thank you so much for your time. Stay safe!
