We Deserve This is a one man project formed in the year 2010 by Jan-Dirk Platek. The music can find itself a place in the post-rock, post-metal area in the genres palette. He was born in 1976 in Germany and he is a multi-instrumentalist who plays all the instruments on the record.
He thinks that the biggest influence was his grandfather in his musical journey. The grandfather was a music teacher and helped him to learn to play various instruments pretty fast. Also he works as a sound and light technician in a theatre in Germany. He says that this playing with sounds and lights has helped him to look at the things in different angles which also influences the way he makes music.
Pacific is a very dark record with lots of post-metal influences. Heavy riffs combined with melancholic melodies are creating a massive wall-of-sound. Jan says “We Deserve This has a lot of different influences but Pacific is the darkest record in my mind-blowing discography.” If you need a dark, heavy record with catchy riffs than this is exactly what you need. You can chill to these record but also bang your head as hard as you can – both aspects are included.
