Hardcore Heavy Metal Musicians Show Their “Furrier” Side

Musicians and fans of the metal music community often get a bad rap because of their dark, gruff and tattooed looks. But the adorable set of photos published in the book Metal Cats by Alexandra Crockett sets out to change that image by getting famous heavy metal musicians to pose with their feline friends and show off their softer sides.

The musicians posing in these photos represent bands with names that are anything but cuddly – Napalm Death, Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, Skeletonwitch and Lightning Swords Of Death. But despite their fearsome band names and their leather, spikes, tattoos and muscles, it’s clear that they share a close bond with their furry friends, just like the rest of us.

What’s even better is that these musicians, most of whom have massive numbers of supporters worldwide, aren’t just putting their faces behind the cause. A series of benefit concerts will be held along the U.S. West Coast, and the proceeds from the concerts, along with a portion of the book’s proceeds, will go to no-kill animal shelters at each of the four cities visited by the benefit shows.

Alexandra Crockett’s Metal Cats is available on Amazon. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will go to no-kill animal shelters in cities along the West Coast.
