The new EP titled Fragile Machine to be released on July 6th, 2018, explores the questions of what comes next in human evolution. What does it mean to be a human, if consciousness can be stored in a machine?
The artwork depicts an enormous server cube floating in space, after the technological singularity, which contains mankind’s digitized minds living forever in an infinite dream created from code. The material christened ‘Scorecore’ by the band, ranges in dynamics and will resonate with fans familiar with heavy weights such as Soilwork, Amaranthe, and In Flames.

Embracing the mentality of a collective art project, the core members–ex-Divinity guitarist Alan Sacha Laskow (ENDITOL, the Order of the Gray, Walk As Chaos), bassist Brent Stutsky (ex-Breach of Trust, ex-Death Valley Dolls), along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (ex-Out of Your Mouth, ex-Autobody, ex-the R.A.C.E.) pulled together an insanely talented cast of collaborators including:

Guest Vocals by Andrew Ivashchenko (Shokran), Renny Carroll (Flux Conduct), Jonathan Thorpenberg (The Unguided), David Chunn (Vallite) and Mark Haggblad (Unveil the Strength)
Guest Guitar Solos by Andy James, Mattias IA Eklundh, Daniele Gottardo and Paul Wardingham.

Additional Guitar Production by Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, Everclear)

The self titled first EP was released by the band in 2015 to critical acclaim, leading to live performances with: Godsmack, Apocalyptica, Trivium, Obey the Brave, Into Eternity, and Kobra and the Lotus, as well as Premieres with Revolver and Metal Underground, and collaborations with production heavyweights like Joey Sturgis and Will Putney. The band was awarded a music video grant for “Almost Human” from Telus Storyhive and primary composer Sacha was the featured artist for Toontrack Metal Month: https://www.toontrack.com/news/customer-spotlight-alan-sasha-laskow/

Every Hour Kills is Endorsed by: Fractal Audio, Bareknuckle Pickups, and Toontrack.

SINS IN VAIN Release Official Music Video for Cover of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE’S “The End of Heartache”

Helsingborg, Sweden Melodic Metal Band SINS IN VAIN has released the official music video for their tribute to KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, “The End of Heartache.”

““Sins In Vain’s cover of ‘The End of Heartache’ is a big ‘thank you’ to Killswitch Engage for all the inspiration over the years. The original is already a metal classic about the pain of being apart from someone you love. Something most people can relate to, unfortunately.
We’ve worked hard to convey the feelings of love and sorrow in this song. The outcome is a balance between respect for the original and our own interpretation and sound. Our delivery is a bit softer, but definitely still powerful.
The End of Heartache is truly close to our hearts, and we hope everyone who will hear our version of it will grasp how much emotion has gone into this.
Much Love, Sins In Vain”

With the band members’ roots and hearts anchored in the Swedish metal scene since 2005, Sins In Vain combines the most prominent elements of contemporary metal. Inspired by the clarity of Evanescence and precision of In Flames, the band captures these traits in a soft, yet very powerful and emotional way. It’s melodic metal at its best.

With equality serving as a fundamental pillar, Sins In Vain tears down the prejudice and misconception that metal music requires rough exteriors and a niche listener. The band’s new material speaks directly to all people, and fits perfectly in the playlists of most metal and pop fans. Lead singer Lenny has always put her heart into each and every sentence she sings and her recent lyrics are even more honest and aware than before, taking inspiration from poets and human rights activists.

From the very start, Sins in Vain got booked for many live gigs throughout Sweden. The band’s most memorable performance to date took place in the summer of 2008 when they played between Soilwork and Volbeat in front of thousands of metal fans at a festival. At that time, Sins In Vain was signed with Nidavallen Records. Their debut album Enemy Within was released in January 2010 and distributed world wide. This gave Sins In Vain a global fanbase, ultimately leading to the band being offered a tour in Japan. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, Sins In Vain split up shortly after the band’s last gig at Sweden Rock Festival in 2009 and the tour fell through.

After six years of silence, the members realized how many people still remained devoted fans of the debut album and the urge to play together came back. Sins In Vain was reborn, with three of the original band members teaming up with two new talents. In May 2017, the powerful singles ‘Horizons’ and ‘Legion’ were released. Both reflect the compositional and personal growth of Sins In Vain and the new material has been warmly welcomed and appreciated by many loyal fans. In December 2017 the band released a cover of “The End of Heartache” (originally by Killswitch Engage). For this song Sins In Vain also made a music video.
