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 and Satyricon 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," he concluded.

Weston was a member of Eyes of Noctum, 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.

    At least he has a good taste in music....maybe he should look into his agent situation because his last few movies have been horrendous.

    Almost every news article on UG today sounded so ridiculous I thought it was April Fools Day for a second.

    "Video of Nicolas Cage headbanging surfaced on YouTube several months ago" This was from the film Face Off, a film that is pretty old by now...

    He was good in Raising Arizona...but sadly, due to most of his work...I'll have to agree.

    Nick Cage had the performance of a carreer in Leaving Las Vegas, terrific film and just brilliant acting from both Cage and Elizabeth Shue. This was the role that gave good ol' Cage his only (and well deserved) Oscar.

    As my above post implied... he could have got one for Bringing out the Dead, and Scorsese could have/should have too. Leaving Las Vegas is utterly brilliant though, really a great piece, he actually drank for certain scenes and got wasted to get in to character.

    I feel like every article on the front page is trying to be humorous in some way.

    Nick Cage started listening to Slayer backwards to uncover the dark truth about the metal conspiracy.
