Reseña de álbum

Cacophony's Speed Metal Symphony is one of the more extreme entries in the Shrapnel Records catalog. Rather than being a showcase for merely one guitar hero possessing superhuman technique, Cacophony brings you two guitar virtuosos, Marty Friedman and Jason Becker, who are equally capable of blowing your head off with their state-of-the-art neo-classical chops. As if that weren't enough, their angular compositions are delivered at warp-speed tempos, with tons of dissonance and odd time signatures thrown into the mix. Imagine twin Yngwie Malmsteens playing simultaneously over a bed of Megadeth rhythm tracks, and you'll get the basic idea. The sheer note density on this album is tough to digest, and the brash production (standard for most Shrapnel releases) makes it all sound like it's happening in a wind tunnel. But underneath the cacophony, two extremely gifted guitarists are at work here. Friedman's and Becker's later solo albums are both superior to this slightly convoluted work (and all the better to sample the guitarists' styles individually). And both of them ultimately went on to score high-profile sideman gigs (Friedman with Megadeth, Becker with David Lee Roth) where their skills are sharpened and focused within the contexts of more conventional song structures. Abrasive singer Peter Marrino adds vocals to most of the tracks on Speed Metal Symphony without necessarily making them any more accessible. This is some of the most indulgent music ever recorded. If you've got the constitution for it, dig in.

The absolute best shred album out there. It is as good as Rising Force in my opinion. This and both of their debut solo albums are incredible but I would reccomend this album over those two. The Ninja, Concerto and the title track have some of the best guitar work i have ever heard.


Jason is the modern motzart. God bless you jason. Jason and Marty are the most underated guitarist ever! Concerto is the best on this album in my opinion.

Friedman AND Becker? What could be a better guitar team?

Seriously, this is probably the best guitar album ever. Both Marty and Jason are geniuses. Best song is Concerto. No bad songs though.

Cacophony was a showcase for the highly technical, neo-classical metal talents of guitar virtuosi Marty Friedman and Jason Becker; both made their own instrumental solo recordings between the band's two albums, Speed Metal Symphony (1987) and Go Off! (1989). Cacophony officially broke up in 1990 after two albums. Friedman joined Megadeth before the group recorded its Rust In Peace album. Becker joined David Lee Roth's band for a short while and played on A Little Ain't Enough. Sadly, Becker was...
