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.
