"I know Satan, I know evil...for Nicolas Cage is my father"


Call me elitist, but when I think of all the types of upbringings that could contribute to someone getting deeply into metal...growing up in a mansion in the Hollywood hills doesn't exactly come to mind. Yes, this is indeed Nicolas Cage's son, and his band Eyes Of Noctum will be putting out an album in early 2009. Watch the video below and you'll see a future stage banter all-star in the making. I think he took lessons in stage banter at a wrestling school, and his look is basically a complete lift from Phil Anselmo's black metal years, which itself was a stolen look from more legit black metalers. As such, this kid's entire life and look amounts to a game of black metal telephone...and by the time things got to him, they were sadly distorted. I mean just look at all those damn rings on his fingers. The guy is like the pseudo-black metal Liberace.


Also, note that rather than giving himself a metal name, he uses his "real" name....Weston Cage. I say "real" because Cage is a last name his father made up early in his life as an actor in order to not be automatically recognized as being Francis Ford Coppola's nephew. Weston, seems to have no issue with this. Still, I'm sure he wishes his dad had given him a cool first name like "Satano-Destructo"...why not? He just named his last kid Kal-El.

I think its nice that his parents paid for him to get that chinese hair straightening. Also note that at the end of the video, he gets in a limo with his mom. Very metal.


This is what happens when your parents pay to have your publicity photo taken. Evil, yet brooding and sexy. Nice mix champ.

  5. i hear people all the time saying "the violence in norwegian black metal is bad" and "they take it too far" or "they are just kids in search of attention" and on and on. BUT, then you see an ass-clown like this and you think "wouldn't it be fucking awesome if gaahl came to LA and tortured this idiot and then faust would finish him off, while count grishnackh burnt his father's beverly hills chalet?"

    hey, dude, you have to EARN the right to dress like a gay S&M slave and sing about winters in a country you have never been to before! it's more than just going to hot topic and picking up a few studded bracelets!

  10. There was also a comic book him and his pop were supposed to be putting out called "Voodoo Child", on Virgin Comics, as in Virgin Airlines, Virgin Cola, Virgin Megastore. There was a preview of it with an issue of Wizard last year. It looked pretty "meh", I am pretty sure the main character had some serious Rob Flynn disease on his head....that's all I remember about it, the art was really mediocre.

  11. Aw man, that's actually awesome. I'm stoked on lil' Cage's acceptance of the dark side. And really, I believe he probably IS legit--I mean, Nicolas Cage is kinda known to be a pretty weird guy; haven't you ever watched his movies? He's perhaps one of the most socially awkward beings on the earth.

    AND Nicolas Cage owns a castle in Bavaria. If that's not metal, I don't know what is.

    If anything, this is at least good for a laugh, right? So let's just let him keep doing his thing so people can continue to laugh at overly serious men in makeup and leather.

  13. his anger comes from being angry at his dad for starring in crap movies and wearing that stupid doleful face. he's out to show the world the cages do have balls. and if you disagree, he'll give you a 20-carat knucklesandwich.

    Seems to me this guy picked up 50% of his "black metal" chops from Anselmo (who I might at some point admit might be somewhat legit, despite never having come up with any good music) and the rest from the Venom "Live at City Gardens" stage banter seven inch, then tries to pull it off with absolutely no balls whatsoever. It doesn't help that he looks four feet tall...

    This dude right here (and a few other nitwits) are what's making black metal look like a ridiculous batch of homosexuals trying to act "tough" and "hard" and look "mean" and god forbid, fucking "evil". I can't make out 98% of what he says, but I'm supposing I heard some mention of "Norwegian black metal." None of this piss belongs in Norwegian black metal, nor did it ever.

    I do however love the bit where he crawls into the limo, like a five-yearold.
