We've known for some time that Weston Coppola Cage, Nicolas Cage's son, is a black metal musician, but he also recently revealed that his Hollywood star father is indeed a fan of black metal. It wasn't just a meme after all.
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.
