So Jason Becker dig BABYMETAL!

Jason Becker, who was playing guitar with Marty Friedman in a 80’s speed metal band named Cacophony, has tweet this today!

Jason Eli Becker (born July 22, 1969) is an American neo-classical metal guitarist and composer. At the age of 16, he became part of the Shrapnel Records-produced duo Cacophony with his friend Marty Friedman. They released Speed Metal Symphony in 1987 and Go Off! in 1988. Cacophony broke up in 1989 and Becker began doing solo work, having released his first album Perpetual Burn in 1988, also through Shrapnel.

He later joined David Lee Roth’s band and recorded one album with him, A Little Ain’t Enough. Becker’s career was hampered by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease and was initially diagnosed with only three to five years left to live. In 1996, Becker lost the ability to speak and now communicates with his eyes via a system developed by his father. Despite his disability, he continues composing by using a computer and has since released with Shrapnel Collection, a “best of” album of his favorite songs and three new songs.

here is the proof!

Some info i’ve find on reddit about that song

That connection is the probably the reason Suzuka has namedropped the band, and Christopher Arnott, in the past. She is a fan of Arch Enemy. Her favorites with the band are Angela’s voice and Amott brothers’ guitar play. She was depressed when the younger brother left the band.

More proof 🙂

Kreator’s Mille Petrozza talk about BABYMETAL

Here is a recent Blabbermouth interview with Mille Petrozza from the legendary german thrash metal band Kreator and he have something to say about BABYMETAL.

The Age Of Metal recently conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza of German thrash metal veterans KREATOR. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked to weigh in on the Japanese pop-metal group BABYMETAL, which has been described by some as the most polarizing thing to hit heavy metal in the past decade, Mille said: “I’m not the one to judge, man. It’s not for me; I’m not their target [audience].”

He continued: “My [personal] opinion? If I listen to metal, I’ll listen to the ‘real’ metal. I like some of the gimmick metal stuff. But on the other hand, I think if I really wanna listen to music, it’s gotta be serious music. I don’t like ‘fun’ music so much.

“I checked out this BABYMETAL, who seems to be the enemy for some people. Like, ‘Oh, how can you do this?’ I’m, like, ‘It’s a big party. Everybody’s going wild.’ Maybe I could not enjoy it as much as the people that were there, but if people are enjoying it, why not? It’s not harmful to any of us, to the ‘real’ metal bands. It won’t hurt us. BABYMETAL will not hurt KREATOR and all the bands that are around that play ‘real’ metal. So don’t worry; it’s all fine. [Laughs]”

Mille also spoke in more general terms about bands like BABYMETAL who combine pop and edgy heavy metal, saying: “I’m a big fan of pop music, so if I wanna listen to pop, I listen to pop music, and not ‘pop metal.’ That doesn’t make too much sense. Even though some people say that if you listen to ‘British Steel’ by JUDAS PRIEST, that’s also pop metal, but I guess that’s in a cooler way, you know. I think there’s a couple of bands that are just… Like I said, it’s all fine, but it’s just not my cup of tea, I’d say.”
