Editorial Reviews

Review

"Metal Cats proves these necromancing rockers love their kitties as much as you and I...It’s pretty much impossible not to get behind the feel-good, communal nature of this project."
-Wired.com

"Crockett noticed the strong bond, and interesting dynamic, between men in the metal scene and their favoured felines. She soon set to work capturing these endearingly enamoured owners and their pets on film. The results are brilliantly unique and unexpected..."
-AnOther

"Amonumentally awesome series"
-Huffington Post

"Aside from the entertainment value, the book also serves a great cause"
-Spin

"Combination of something fluffy and something hardcore"
-Examiner.com

"Black leather, spikes and tattoos? Check. Creepy and/or scary-sounding band name? Check. Adorable little kitty cat on your shoulder? Check!"
-Guitar World

About the Author

Alexandra Crockett, a musician and jewelry designer, has been present and active in the metal community since the age of 15 and is currently a doctoral student in the Bay Area. 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 for the book formed around giving accolades to local musicians and artists in the metal scene, while also bringing to light no-kill shelters and their importance for animal rights.

If you are like me, a metal head who loves kitty cats, then this picture book will make you throw your horns.

The pics were great, the book was filled with pictures however, not one picture had the pet's name or owner's name? You had to look in the index and the font is tiny and not very legible. Very disappointed with that.

My son is a heavy metal artist, and the gentlest soul you could ever meet. He and his wife have one black cat, no kids, but they love their cat. Its so heartwarming to see the gentle side of these heavy metal guys.

Metal? Yeah! Cats? Yeah! Put them together and you get this great book with sweet and not so sweet kitties. And, I admit, sometimes the owners are as much eye candy as the cats. Would recommend to metal heads and cat-herders alike! :D

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Funny cats. You look silly.

Production quality could be a little better, however. And I wish there was a hardcover available.

Adorable, humorous, and interesting. I absolutely love the idea behind this book, was a must pre-order when I first saw it on Amazon. Finally received it today and as expected, it lives up to its title. Brutal and kvlt metalheads snuggling and showing off their adorable kitties! The book begins with an great heartfelt introduction by Bariann Tuite, then you get pages and pages of awesome unique photograph after awesome photograph - lots of the metalheads personality shining through in each individual photograph with their beloved felines. My only complaint is that I wish that the band members names were listed on the pages - there is a great index in the back of the book, however, but there is a lot of blank, black spaces under and beside a lot of the photos. Seeing the metalhead's name and their band logo would have been nice, but that doesn't stop this book from being a must purchase for any metalhead who loves cats! The photography is great, nice mixture of different genres of metal guys, and great quality thick pages. Makes a great coffee table book but another great thing is that a portion of the proceeds will go towards no-kill shelters. Recommend!

Missing the names of cats and their owners, I hope she makes corrections and gets this baby reprinted!!!! It's too hard to look them up in the back.... I'd also like to see more artists with their cats, from punk or alternative bands.

I absolutely love the concept for this. So many of the dudes in this are adorable and the cats look so full of personality. My main issue, however, is that a lot of the photos are webcam quality and the printing is kind of... weird on a lot of pages. Like a photo that takes up one page and 1/3 of the next page, and then the remaining 2/3rds are black, then on another page it's the same thing but the extra space is white. I guess it's supposed to be gritty and imperfect because that's more underground and Metal, but it might have been a touch too kvlt for my tastes. There are still plenty of gems in the book though, so this metalhead does not regret the purchase even if it's a little less professional looking than she prefers.
