Finnish metalcore eccentrics ONE MORNING LEFT are finally back with a retro vengeance!
The band officially launched the pre-orders for their brand-new album »Hyperactive«, which will be available on 21st of May in 2021, via Arising Empire.
The band’s second single ‘Ruby Dragon‘ also opens the album with a bang, a song about self-improvement, overcoming depression and becoming the best version of yourself.
“Mika wanted a song about the board game ”Labyrinth” so I adapted that to the themes above and had a great time writing this, even though the inspirations are.. heavy,” Luoto explains.
Keyboardist Touko Keippilä continues: “Ruby Dragon was the culmination point in the album writing process, as it perfectly encapsulates what we aspire our new musical style to be like. Groovy, heavy riffs and clean, glistening synthwork providing a platform for the two vocalists to deliver their lines with a raw and wild energy.”

ONE MORNING LEFT’s fourth album marks their first new material in five years. On »Hyperactive« the group begins a whole new chapter in their story, drawing inspiration from retro electronic- and video game music, as well as 80’s hard rock, while staying true to their heavier roots.
Changes are happening not only in the musical style, but also in their lineup. Returning from the cast of 2016’s “Metalcore Superstars” are frontman Mika Lahti, singer-guitarist Leevi Luoto and drummer Niko Hyttinen. Additional firepower is provided by new faces Tuukka Ojansivu on guitar and Miska Sipiläinen on bass guitar, as well as the return-to-form of keyboard player Touko Keippilä from the band’s original “Panda <3 Penguin” lineup.
The album shapes up to be the artistic peak of ONE MORNING LEFT‘s musical “blood mountain”: epic lyrics carried by Luoto’s soaring vocal melodies, contrasted by the distinctive, gritty sound of Lahti, all accompanied by breathtaking keyboard leads, blisteringly fast guitars, masterful bass riffs and feverish drum parts.
With the release of »Hyperactive«, ONE MORNING LEFT looks to add to their growing global fan base. Having gathered extensive live performance experience playing countless shows in Finland, touring mainland Europe, Russia, and the Baltics, and even performing in places such as Iceland and Japan, the group is planning on taking their entertaining and energetic live show on the road in the near future.
“Join us on our quest to make the world a bit more epic!”
