Metal Cats combines two amazing subjects: the extreme personalities of the metal music scene and their adorable kitties. These incredibly cute and fluffly felines have been photographed with their loving owners in and around the dark abodes of over 100 musicians, fans, and promoters of metal including members of the bands Black Goat, Thrones, Isis, Lightning Swords of Death, Winterthrall, Wizards of Wor, The Cauterized, Book of Black Earth, Skarp, Harassor, Akimbo, Aldebaran, Atriarch, Oak, Ghoul, Ludicra, Holy Grail, Xasthur, Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, Exhumed, Anhedonist, Morbid Angel, Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Gypsyhawk, Nausea, Phobia, Napalm Death.

The metal scene is known for its love of dark, depressing, and disturbing imagery and ideas, and its fans are often characterized as violent, hateful, and misanthropic. Metal Cats is hard evidence that while the music may be brutal, the people in the scene are softies for their pets just like everyone and sometimes more.

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.

Alexandra Crockett is a freelance photographer and jeweler based in Seattle. Originally from southern New Jersey, Alexandra has photographed people in the metal scene up and down the West Coast. She studied at university in Sweden as well as the United States, and has a dual life in both the art and music scene and academia.
