Imagine you have an interest that borders on obsession. It conjures excitement
into the small hours of the morning, making sleep elusive. It is an abyss, gently
drawing in most all of your available time and money. Over time, this escalation
of commitment causes others to question your reasoning and no matter how
concise your explanation, you simply cannot make them understand.
Like the old cliché goes, what a 365 it has been. I will always remember the hiring process because of what sold me on Prince George – Costco. For the record, they don’t do endorsements, although I wouldn’t mind some free gas, but I digress. So how on earth did that seal the deal? Well if they set up shop here, I couldn’t imagine there would be much missing from what I was used to in big bad Toronto.
“We had great, great music produced here in Prince George,” said singer Cole Pruden. “There’s so much thirst for it, but now it’s really dry.” “It’s not like we want to get ahead of everyone in this town, we want the music scene to grow with us,” noted guitarist Ryan Wishart. The six band members – Pruden, Wishart, covocalist Cole Franz, bassist Riley Murphy, guitarist Cameron Cochlan and drummer Ryan Mathers – are ready to play anywhere at the drop of a hat. “We started off our, our first show was with a DJ, and the crowd actually really adored our music and wanted us to play more,” said Pruden. “Those two groups don’t really mix but we did it anyways and we got really good feedback from our style.” It’s a style that features extended-range guitars á la Lamb of God, Meshugga and Thy Art is Murder that’s still in a fairly experimental stage, said Cochlan. Toss in some 1960s and 70s prog rock and you might have a starting point for the Blood Hoürglass sound. “It’s fairly heavy though, the lower-tuned guitars strings, two vocals, crazy drum and basses. It’s trying to take it heavier,” said Franz, the newest addition to the band.
