If you think it’s the perfect time to wider your musical horizon while the music became boring – which it’s actually f*ckin’ true -, One Morning Left might be your perfect choice and from where you kick out. Merging trance flavoured electronic layers, dubstep drops and mad wobbling, with death metal rooted extreme metal butcheries, One Morning Left delivers all. This is fun and simultaneously deadly serious. Screaming like a slaughtered pig (Mika “Miksu” Lahti), or singing loud and clear (Tomi “Tomppa” Salonen), banging on techno beats (Veli-Matti “Vesku” Kananen) or heavy basses (Tuomas “Tumppi” Teittinen), murderous guitar riffs (Ari “Arska” Levola), blood vomiting growls and total brutality – One Morning Left covers all. And – surprisingly – this sounds great and make sense! Or not really surprisingly. Geerally speaking, Scandinavians delivers quality stuffs. Eventually, in the particular case of One Morning Left, blame it on the Finnish climate, Scooter, Lauri Tähkä and the mental hospitals…
One Morning Left is gearing up to release their second full length album, “Our Sceneration” after making their fans wait for a year and a half from their praised debut, The Bree-Teenz.
The success around The Bree-Teenz was something unexpected, but on the otherhand, how could it not succeed when considering just how fresh and different the album was. Our Sceneration is no different. The band has clearly evolved and moved on from the previous, having even heavier riffs, more terrifying pig squeals and black metal church organs while still keeping that slight tongue-in-cheek feel that makes One Morning Left who they are.
The band have done their fair bit of work as well. Known for their energetic shows where absolutely anything can happen, the band has round up doing DIY European tours, Russian tours, playing as support to bands like Amaranthe, Adept, Protect the Hero as well as a German tour as main support for We Butter the Bread With Butter. One Morning Left also graced the Finnish festival season in 2012, playing renowned festivals like Tuska Open Air and Nummirock. The Bree-Teenz even charted at #30 on the Finnish Album chart and at #7 on Finland’s indie-chart.
February is a freezing cold dark time in Finland, but with the knowledge that Our Sceneration will be released on February 22nd, there are a lot of fans out there that can see the light at the end of winter’s tunnel. Fans the band has, as can be showcased from their over 27.000 Facebook likes, over half a million YouTube views and over a million MySpace plays.

09. Game over
10. Fuck the lyrics
11. Things to do to get stabbed
My personal favoirtes are “Sarcoptes scabiei + on face”, “Faith in humanity”, “Game over”, “Our sceneration” and “Fuck the lyrics”.
This is quite schizophrenic, but damn it, I might be sick and psycho, I really enjoy it. It’s refreshing, massive, precisely and efficiently build together. Some of their choruses are addictive, most of their riffs are bone cutters, everything it’s in the right place and although the mixture of the elements it’s unconventional and explosive, they make an outstanding job.
There are a few other so-called metalcore bands who are desperately trying to explore this are where grinding to the ground metal meets electronic dance music, but while most of them lamentably fail, One Morning Left managed to deliver a murderous release. Again.
