Cacophony  


Formed by guitarists Marty Friedman and Jason Becker, Cacophony's music featured classical influences and the sort of complex guitar soloing that would become the trademark of Shrapnel releases. The band broke up soon after Go Off, but the next year saw the release (also on Shrapnel) of solo records by both Friedman (Dragon's Kiss*) and Becker (*Perpetual Burn), with each guesting on the other. Friedman, of course, went on to join Megadeth, while Becker played in David Lee Roth's band before contracting ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), which forced him to retire from the business (though he still composes music with the help of computers, and released a solo album, Perspective, a year or two ago).
