Watch Every Hour Kills's "Almost Human" Music Video Below:
The song is about addictions, vices and demons. Everybody has them in some form. Sometimes when you deal with these trials you feel isolated and alone, like an alien among your own kind. Like you're not quite human...
The video concept illustrates this by showing the band in a cold, isolated environment being filmed only by futuristic robotic security cameras. They are forced to perform and give every ounce of energy they have to even have a chance of being set free... - Sacha Laskow
Inspired by an anonymous literary quote “Every hour wounds, but the last one kills.”, Every Hour Kills is a power house ensemble featuring ex-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.” comments Laskow. “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.
RAMMSTEIN UNLEASHES NEW ‘RAMMSTEIN IN AMERIKA’ DOCUMENTARY AND ‘LIVE FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN’ CONCERT FILM
RAMMSTEIN UNLEASHES NEW ‘RAMMSTEIN IN AMERIKA’ DOCUMENTARY AND ‘LIVE FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN’ CONCERT FILM IN 2DVD AND 2BLU-RAY PACKAGES WITH 5.1 SURROUND SOUND
Global Release Date: September 25
Rammstein made a triumphant return to the U.S. stage for the first time in 10 years, to headline one sold-out concert at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The venue’s more than 18,000 seats were snatched up for the special appearance within less than 30 minutes of going on sale, heralding Rammstein’s return with a frenzied fanfare on par with the German band’s elaborate stage presentation. On September 25, Island/UMe will release RAMMSTEIN IN AMERIKA in 2DVD and 2Blu-ray packages, pairing the incendiary Madison Square Garden concert, expertly filmed and recorded in 5.1 surround, with a feature-length documentary film directed by Hannes Rossacher. A 20-minute film about the making of Rammstein’s sixth album, Liebe ist für alle da, is also included.
The two-hour RAMMSTEIN IN AMERIKA documentary throws open the band’s private archives spanning more than 20 years, including a trove of never-before-seen footage. Originated and personally overseen by Rammstein, the film is a fascinating chronological exploration of the band’s history, from the members’ shared experience of limited touring and other creative business opportunities behind the Iron Curtain in their native East Germany to bursting onto the world’s stage as metal/rock heroes after Germany’s reunification. The film follows Rammstein’s first forays into U.S. touring and American music business dealings in the 1990s, their work with David Lynch for the Lost Highway soundtrack, global radio and music television success, and international touring, which included the 1999 arrest of two of the band’s members in Massachusetts for elements of their stage presentation deemed by local police to be “lewd and lascivious behavior.”
The film also goes behind the scenes with Rammstein’s retreat from America in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, before concluding with the band’s eventual return to perform in America on November 12, 2010 at Madison Square Garden. In addition to Rammstein’s Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (bass), Flake Lorenz (keyboard), and Christoph Schneider (drums, percussion), several well-known American artists, including Iggy Pop, Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Moby, Melissa Auf der Maur, Marilyn Manson, Kiefer Sutherland, Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Jonathan Davis (Korn), CJ Ramone, Scott Ian (Anthrax), Slipknot, System of a Down, KISS, and Taylor Momsen, are among the documentary’s diverse and insightful participants.
Shot in high definition with 14 cameras and 5.1 surround audio, Rammstein’s LIVE FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN concert film shows the band in full creative stride as they command the stage for their roof-raising return to New York. Rammstein’s complete performance of 18 songs is captured in the film, clocking in for one hour and 41 minutes of visual and sonic annihilation.
Also included is Paul Landers’ 20-minute Making Of Liebe ist für alle da documentary, which takes viewers into the studio during Rammstein’s November/December 2008 sessions for the band’s sixth album in Sonoma, California.
