    Default Cats & the Metalheads that Love Them

    When you think of heavy metal rockers you probably don't think of fluffy kitties, but Alexandra Crockett is looking to change that.
    Crockett is the photographer behind Metal Cats, a photo book published by powerHouse Books that features images of musicians from the hardcore metal music scene posing with their furry feline friends. The individuals in the shots come from bands with less-than-cuddly names such as Lightning Swords of Death, Book of Black Earth, Cattle Decapitation, and Murder Construct. In the photos, though, it's hard to miss the love and tenderness between man and animal.

    "Metal isn't all dark and disturbing, violent and misanthropic," a synopsis by powerHouse reads. "Metal Cats is proof that while the music may be brutal, the people in the scene are softies for their pets just like you and me."
    A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Metal Cats, as well as proceeds from benefit shows held in four cites on West Coast, will go to one no-kill shelter in each of those cities, the publisher's site notes. The book is due out in May.

    Check out some of the photos below:

    I've known a lot of metal heads over the years. Honestly, most of them were really kind and huge animal lovers.

    If a god of love and life ever did exist... he is long since dead. Someone... something, rules in his place.

    Knew a guy who was a total metal head, owned 2 Harleys, shaved his head, tats from top to bottom (from what I could see ), huge and scary looking. Had several rescue cats and dogs and told me he couldn't go to animal shelters "cause I want to take them all home". Just irresistible.
