On Go Off!, the duo clean up the sound a bit and pare back the guitar excesses just a tad, allowing for a slightly more song-oriented approach (similar to what Racer X does). Stranger" even has a decent pop hook in its chorus. Lead singer Peter Marrino adds some rather overwrought heavy metal braying and some truly ridiculous lyrics (sample: "Don't mess with a black cat/if you believe in superstition/never mess with a black cat!") which may turn off some listeners.

Cacophony's sophomore album, Go Off! showcases an immense amount of development in a very short time. Unfortunately, this is also the last album they managed to produce, seeing as shortly after its release Marty Friedman joined Megadeth, and Jason Becker teamed up with David Lee Roth. Much like its predecessor, Speed Metal Symphony, Go Off! is undoubtedly one of the most important albums in shred guitar, and in its very basic form, one helluva album. First off, I have to mention that the production on this album is better than on SMS, but is still no better than average overall.

Jason Eli Becker (born July 22, 1969) is an American musician, songwriter and composer. At the age of 16, he became part of the Shrapnel Records-produced duo Cacophony with his friend Marty Friedman. They released the albums 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.
