Weston Coppola Cage
, a black metal musician and the son of Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage
recently revealed that his father is in fact a fan of the infamous genre.
While chatting with Illogical Contraption
, Weston singled out Darkthrone
as his dad's personal favorites, saying that the "Ghost Rider
" star admires the genre's honesty.
"He's really appreciated that sort of music,"
young Cage said. "Him and I have had conversation about black metal before. At first he was like 'What does it promote?' and I just gave him an idea of what we're trying to do and he said 'Well that sounds very honest.' He likes Darkthrone and he likes Satyricon as well,"
Weston was a member of Eyes
, a black metal act based in LA and is currently working on a solo project called Allone
Darkthrone released their latest studio record "The Underground Resistance
" back in late February through Peaceville Records. Satyricon on the other hand, are preparing to unleash a self-titled effort on September 10, marking the eighth release in band's opus.
Video of Nicolas Cage headbanging surfaced on YouTube several months ago is nothing short of appropriate for the latest news. Let us know what you think of Nic's fondness of black metal in the comments.
