In her aptly named book Metal Cats, photographer Alexandra Crockett has documented the seemingly unlikely duo of hardcore metal musicians and their fluffy cats. The book is currently available for pre-order for a May 6, 2014 release.
Metal Cats combines two amazing subjects: the extreme personalities of the hardcore metal music scene and their adorable kitties. These incredibly cute and fluffy felines have been photographed with their loving owners in and around the dark abodes of musicians, fans, and promoters of metal including members of the bands Black Goat, Thrones, Isis, Lightning Swords of Death, Book of Black Earth, Skarp, Harassor, Akimbo, Aldebaran, Atriarch, Oak, Ghoul, Ludicra, Holy Grail, Xasthur, Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, Exhumed, Morbid Angel, Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Gypsyhawk, Nausea, Phobia, and Napalm Death
A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to no-kill shelters in Seattle, Portland, Oakland and Los Angeles.
