In 2002, six men came together with the idea to turn the music world on its ear. They called themselves One Day Left and they are well on their way to making that happen. The band members met via newspaper ads and discovered that each person had the same goal – to make their mark on the music scene. To that end, they brought together two incredibly diverse sounds and created a new, daring, incredibly hard-hitting mix. Think rock/metal meets rap/hip-hop and you’ll get my meaning. The idea has been tried by bands before – Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, and more – but somehow, these bands lacked the harsh, raw component that One Day Left has created.
From the first note, One Day Left’s music hits you like a tidal wave, slamming you head on, sucking you in and under and immersing you in a new sound that shakes you to the core. Singers Traz and Kode Blue are experts at moving the crowd and keeping them pumped with hardcore lyrics and intensity. One Day Left as a whole brings excitement and energy to every performance. One cannot listen to this band without feeling that energy course through them, waking them up from the deep slumber known as everyday radio.
Perhaps the best way to learn about One Day Left is to listen to their song, Prophecy. The band goes in depth about their new brand of music – what they term in the song as Gansta Rock, the future music. What do they say to their haters – “This is future music, get used to it. Ain’t nobody you know do it quite like we do it.” So, for all of you folks out there looking for something new and innovative to listen to, check out the most successful marriage of metal and hip-hop to date. “Get the name right - it’s One Day Left - and I’m gonna rock ‘til I’m on my last breath!”
