Featuring BECKO’s signature screaming vocals intertwine with aggressive guitars to fuel an angst-ridden soundscape. Becko’s cover of “OPEN YOUR EYES” implores you to see the reality of what’s going on around you. The single keeps the abrasive spirit of the original while furthering the story Becko has spun in the previously released tracks for Present Day // Present Time. The single’s energetic and fierce soundscape is a clarion call to his listeners. Open your eyes.
“This is a cover from Guano Apes. When I was a kid I heard this song and it was stuck inside my head till now,” explains Becko. “The song fits so much with this new sound I’m doing inspired from 90’s and early 2000 rock and nu metal music.”
Marco Calanca of post-hardcore band Hopes Die Last, created Becko as a solo project, uniting influences of EDM, Hip-Hop, Industrial, and Emo-Rock.
With previous releases under his belt with labels ranging from Warner Italy and Universal Italy, to Monstercat, Lowly Palace, and Smash the House since 2014, Becko found a new home in early 2020, signing a multi-album deal with the independent, artist-owned/operated USA-based electronic-rock label FiXT, founded by genre-pioneering artist & producer Klayton (Celldweller, Circle of Dust).
In 2020, Becko released the full-length album INNER SELF, as a triumphant fusion of trap & metal. In 2021 Becko released a flurry of singles including “Darkest Days” which was produced by Mike Shinoda all on the path leading up to the release of his second full-length trap-metal album with FiXT, You Are (Not) Alone, which dropped in early 2022. Becko introduced his latest 90s-inspired concept album Present Day // Present Time with the release of “Home” and continues to build towards the full album release in 2023.
