Skulls and siamese, corpse paint and persians, pentagrams, blood, and tabbies!
Metal Cats juxtaposes two completely amazing subjects: metal music and cats!
The cutest of cats have been photographed with their loving owners – musicians, fans, and promoters of metal – in and around their dark abodes. Metal Cats is proof that while the music may be brutal, the people in the scene are big softies for their kitties!
Alexandra Crockett, a musician, zinester and jewellery designer, has been active in the Bay Area metal community since age 15. Beginning her idea for the book by doing promotional photos for bands and friends she would cat-sit for, she found an interesting dynamic between men in the metal scene and their cats. The idea formed around giving accolades to local musicians and artists in the metal scene, while also bringing attention to no-kill shelters and their importance for animal rights (a portion of the proceeds from the book goes towards supporting no-kill shelters).
