Italian musician Becko announces anime-inspired trap metal album "You Are (Not) Alone", out April 1st via FiXT
Trap metal artist Becko announces his latest album "You Are (Not) Alone" is now available for pre-order with the instant grat "Cryblood" (feat. Gizmo) dropping now. Written during the second Italian quarantine the trap metal album pays homage to his inspiration and love of anime and manga, with appearances from Prymus, Gizmo, IN6N, Stefan, Rhen, and Marry Me! Bellamy.
"You Are (Not) Alone" features a range of singles including the fiery single "Otaku Pride" which landed two official Spotify playlists upon release, "Lonewolf" an homage to Becko's former band, Hopes Die Last, which landed three official Spotify playlists when released, and the ultra-catchy alt-electronic-rock anime-inspired "Boku No Universe," placed in the Oculus VR music rhythm game Smash Drums.
The album also features "Darkest Days" a poignant creation with heartfelt vocal melodies overlaid with intense screams and hard-hitting beats, produced by Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda himself.
On the production of "Darkest Days," Mike Shinoda said:-
“I’ve had a lot of fun producing so many new, upcoming artists on Twitch, and Becko was definitely a standout. I’m excited for the song’s release and to see what he does in the coming years.”
On the upcoming album, Becko said:-
"I've written "You Are (Not) Alone" all in one shot during the second Italian quarantine. I was feeling in a cage as all we were and I've started to compare this feeling to the hikikomori way of life.
The album is a way to react to all the bad things that can happen in our lives. It's the path of the kid that becomes mature taking life in his hands fighting against his demons. It's the path of the new generation that fights against the old generation with this new technology as a weapon. It's my path through music knowing myself more and more."
You Are (Not) Alone is available now for pre-order and drops April 1st from the independent multi-genre label FiXT.
Australian Trap Metal pioneers The Weight Of Silence return with new single & video "Runnin' Through The 666"
Hot off of a collaboration with Upon A Burning Body main man Danny Leal, The Weight Of Silence are here to prove that trap metal isn't a trend and neither are they. Continuing to prove their unique approach to a fresh genre, The Weight of Silence are "Runnin' Through The 666" on their latest single, blending metalcore with the swagger of trap!
Vocalist Jacob Pederson states that:-
“While we’ve focused our recent 2 singles on the #TRAPMETAL movement, our brand new single "Runnin Through The 666" could almost be placed as melodic hardcore! This is the sound we started this band on, and even though we’re all about evolving with our sound, we will never forget where we came from. This one is for our day one fans!"
Watch "Runnin' Through The 666" Official Video
The video for "Runnin' Through the 666" premiered on September 18 through New Noise Magazine; it showcases the band's live energy and the flare for the dramatic that can be heard in all of their songs. It's undeniably an unconventional and sometimes silly approach, but The Weight of Silence's roots in hardcore are evident in their music and in their dedication to their fans!
