I was very surprised to see no cacophony thread on the shred forum. Anyway if you don't know who they are they are a band that is led by Jason Becker and Marty Friedman so you know they are good. So talk about anything you want about them. To get the thread started I am planning on getting an album from Amazon, should I get Go Off! or Speed Metal Symphony first.

Marty Friedman is amazing. His solo work, his work with Cacophony, his work with Nanase Aikawa (Jpop artist) and his work with 'Deth is just brilliant. One of the best shredders. I second the recommendation of that album, Speed Metal Symphony. And I would get that one first.
Long live the coldest, rawest, most brutal black metal!

It's quite amazing - metal and jpop, two of my fav genres, this amazing guitarist has played both styles quite well. Amazing.

Cacophony is alright, but their solo stuff owns it tenfold.

Don't steal off of Becker then and go buy it.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

I support him by listening to his music and reccommending him to others. But do you really think the small percentage of royalty he would recieve from me is gonna enable him to walk?

It's not about him walking, it's about not stealing from a ****ing cripple. Have some respect. He deserves it.

He has my infinite respect for the optimism he displays, despite being paralyzed.

Wait-- what the hell. Stop guilt-tripping me!! I think it might be working..

I'm more a fan of their solo work than Cacophony, although Cacophony does have some pretty sweet jams.

I really enjoy Concerto from Speed Metal Symphony (and the title track of course)


I was wondering, is that a 12-string acoutic on the intro to E.S.P. ?

Bad vocals, bad production, and immature abilities set me off.

Jason and Marty's abilities had not yet matured yet...that's what i mean by that. I mean it's cool and all, but to me it's just a couple of young guys who could play. After the experience with each other, I believe they got much better as musicians and their songwriting skyrocketed.

I think it just revolves more of the general concept of putting the two together in one band. They made great music but the majority of their respective solo material is superior.

I'm sure they could have found someone who could have done better vocals. But other than that, they're probably the best shred band ever.

I'm sure most of you knew this, but I found this interesting.
Definition of Cacophony (dictionary.com):

1. Jarring, discordant sound; dissonance: heard a cacophony of horns during the traffic jam.

2. A loud harsh or strident noise [syn: blare, blaring, clamor, din],
loud confusing disagreeable sounds.

What a name for an 80s shred band!
