It was inevitable. The worlds of metal and people who love cats have finally converged in a new book, Metal Cats. The book features photos of musicians, fans, and promoters of metal with their cats, including members of ISIS, AKIMBO, GHOUL, LUDICRA, EXHUMED, MORBID ANGEL, MUNICIPAL WASTE, NAUSEA, PHOBIA, and NAPALM DEATH.
A portion of the proceeds from this book and a series of benefit shows held along the West Coast will go towards one no-kill shelter in each of the four main cities visited. No dogs in Adidog hoodies, only cats this time.
Photographer Alexandra Crockett had the idea to give accolades to local musicians and artists in the metal scene, while also bringing to light no-kill shelters and their importance for animal rights.
