One Last Shot are a band from France that plays a musical style that they refer to as 'dust metal' and this is a review of their 2014 ep "First gear" which was released by Just For Fun Records.
A very clean southern rock style sound starts off the ep along with some melodic solos that are a huge part off all of the songs and then the music goes into more of an aggressive punk/metal sound along with some aggressive vocals and you can also heat a lot of stone r rock elements in the bands musical style.
There is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording and at times the vocals also have a melodic tone to them and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times the band also adds in the heaviness of thrash and hardcore into certain sections of the recording.
One Last Stand takes thrash, hardcore, stoner, southern rock and a touch of hair metal to create their own style of 'dust metal', th e production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion One Last Stand are a very great sounding dust metal band and if you are looking for something original, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Skateboard Song" and "Headbangers". 8 out of 10.
