A new band for 2021, One Last Day features vocalist Alex Willox (ex-Bad Solution) and guitarist John Harmsworth. Launching a new project in the middle of a global pandemic isn’t the easiest thing to do, but their debut recording captures various solid riffs that should appeal to fans of bands like Shinedown and Seether.
The track’s instant appeal comes through various chunky riffs, where guitarist John shifts between solid, rhythm chopping sounds to massive, crunching grooves overlaid with equally huge wah-wahed sounds. Although taking massive queues from post-grunge and melodic metal sounds, there’s even time for a massive instrumental break where the speed and and aggression calls back to the early 80s and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The vocals don’t always have the biggest presence, but the song’s message of personal strength adds plenty of weight throughout. Along with the Joe Elliott championed Attic Theory, One Last Day are very much a band to watch out for.
