One Second Hotel is a European progressive metal / ambient / electronic project from Slovakia, which was founded several years ago by young guitar player and diverse songwriter Jakub Tirco and their current bass player Dusan Labuda. Yet it wasn’t until 2011 that their occasional weekend jam sessions started becoming a full-time band.
Over the years of jamming, the band started rehearsing with talented drummer Jano Huljak, which almost immediately led to the search of their fourth and final member, the voice of One Second Hotel, Mayo Petranin.
In fall 2012 they came up with a name for their project and initialized the recording process of what would later become band’s self-titled debut EP. For the first time, in spring 2013, they publicly appeared as attendants of Slovak version of Wacken Metal Battle where they eventually reached 2nd place.
On August 12, 2013 the band unofficially released their long-awaited four-track debut, titled One Second Hotel EP, via their website for free. The band also began working on visuals and rehearses a wide variety of new materials for their upcoming shows later in the year.
A full-length album is planned to be released in 2014.
