Prior to this was the release of ‘The Rumbling’ a cover of the Attack On Titan soundtrack and before that ‘666Skincare’ that featur3e a blend of screaming vocals, distorted synths, electronic beats, and heavy guitar riffs, drawing heavily on a fusion of industrial and electronic influences.  

666Skincare is a trap metal dark song with industrial and electronic influences. The lyrics are about religion, social media, and our present days,” said Becko.

Former post-hardcore band vocalist for Hopes Die Last, Italian multi-genre producer, musician, and vocalist Marco Calanca created Becko as a solo project, uniting influences of EDM, Hip-Hop, Industrial, and Emo-Rock.

And before that even, Becko brought out the anime-inspired alt-electro-rock single in ‘Boku No Universe’. Described as being “Ultra-catchy” and “Genre-bending”, it features synths blended with catchy electronic beats, distorted vocals, and heavy guitar riffs balanced with a melodic chorus.
Featuring explicit lyrics it is a rock track with darkish and emotional elements influenced by the Otaku world. Apparently, the song speaks about the awareness of a guy hurt by someone else that knows he’s got potential and will never surrender and give up in life because of someone else.
