Metal dudes love cats. Don't believe us? Well, "Metal Cats," the new book from photographer Alexandra Crockett is proof.

As Metal Injection reports, the volume shows a number of black and death metal’s most gnarly performers posing with their feline friends. Acts featured include:

Black Goat, Thrones, Isis, Aldebaran, Oak, Ghoul, Holy Grail, Cattle Decapitation, Morbid Angel, Skeletonwitch, Gypsyhawk, Phobia and Napalm Death.

Profits from the book will go to a good cause, with a portion of proceeds directed to a number of no-kill animal shelters.

The book can be pre-ordered from Amazon.

Check out some photographic excerpts from the book below.

    Ehm...one of the guys had a chicken. A chicken is not a cat.

    That's why it says "pets" in the title.

    Fair play but the title of the book is still "Metal Cats". Pretty sure you can't walk into KFC and ask for a cat bucket family meal.

    A word of advice, if you don't want to eat cat, don't order a donner kebab. Quite a few takeaways near where I live have been found to contain cat meat in their donner and I'm pretty sure it's common throughout England. And it's not just cat meat that has been found, it's rats and pigeons too.

    Funny stuff...certainly makes people see metal musicians in a different light.

    Let's be honest, metal cockatoo's are the best. I have one!

    Yeah, I've seen those before. Birds and lizards can respond to rhythmic music because they haven't lost their reptilian cortices through evolution, unlike cats and dogs.

    I was hoping they'd all have Lions, Panthers, Tigers etc in the pictures. It's just more metal. Even Pandas or Raccoons - Those bad asses wear natures corpsepaint.
