Metal cats: the new vogue in town


Written by Valentina Romano

I am pretty sure that not many of you have heard of Metal Cats, or am I wrong?

Well it was quite a surprised for The Golden Scope as well, as this is actually a new trend that has been gaining popularity on the web as well as among people.


Metal Cats are cats whose owners are heavy metal/hardcore musicians, and – believe it or not – those animals somehow manage to look and behave just like their human friends. In other words, the cats become metal too!

The Metal Cats’ vogue has been spreading all around the U.S. and it has now entered Europe. Soon it will probably move over to Asia and Africa too.

Recently, photographer Alexandra Crockett published a book that collects and showcases incredible shots of hardcore metal musicians with their lovable fluffy friends.

The book, which is called, indeed, Metal Cats, shows how all these people, even if belonging to bands such as Napalm Death, Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, Skeletonwitch and Lightning Swords Of Death, have actually a soft spot for their cats!
