I looked for a Cacophony thread, didn't find one. They're an awesome Neo-classical shred band with Becker and Friedman. If you're just gettin into them, I suggest "Speed Metal Symphony".

that was their most famous song but becker alone was better guitarist then friedman and is still a better musical composer even though he's paralyzed, he still composes with eye movements and if you've heard any of his newer stuff you'll be amazed, but yeah cacophony was pretty sweet still is

one of the best guitar duos ever. I do agree becker is definitly the more talented guitarist though. And i wish friedman would go back to speed metal, the new stuff he works on sucks.

I also hear they are making a movie on beckers life.

Concerto is one of the greatest songs to come out that time period. The intro, leading into that awesome harmony is simply fantastic.

Cacophony rocks but i must say that i only like the instrumentals.
On the first album , i felt like punching the singer in the face.
Allthough on the second one the vocals are bearable.

Anyway Jason played the most awesome felt melting sweep picking ever.

^ Really?

Anyway, I love Cacophony, but i do really hate the singer.
Shame about that really.


I have to agree there. The singing is horrible.

Boooooo. I like the vox, actually! ... Even though they are crap.

For some reason, I always seem to compare Cacophony to Racer X – they both released debut and sophomore albums in the late-80s, both had hilariously weak singers, both had sick guitarists, and both made good solid tunes for driving.

Anyone else think they're similar?

Absolutely. The Gilbert/Boulliet combo is very similar to the Becker/Friedman one, and I can't really pick which one I like better.

If Hendrix, Clapton and Page were to jam, the most impressive guitarist playing would be Paul Gilbert.

yeah i love them, unlike most people ive talked to, i prefer Go Off! more than SMS, i specifically like x-ray eyes and black cat off of that album, as for SMS probably the song speed metal symphony, desert island, or burn the ground

EDIT: and Beckerism, links?

Man... my first post ever in this forum. ofcourse will be about jeson becker!! i searched the forum and found cacophony so i said this is the closes one to be about jason becker (on the first results page).
yeah jason is a great musicion, he's a genius, he's a big source of inspiration to me.
and about the movie, damn its an old issue.. heard that the actor from fast & furious (that angry guy that played a little bit electric guitar in the film in a party..) will represent him in the movie, but heard that long ago..
but diffenetly i hope they release the movie as soon as possible, cant afford to miss it!
#23
That singer sucks indeed lol:P

He's just there to fill in the vocals not to contribute to the music.

IT;s all about becker and friedman
