Cats might be more badass than you think, especially if we're talking about metal cats. 'Metal Cats' is a new photo book by Alexandra Crockett that features both felines and their heavy metal-loving guardians.

The death metal pairings prove that the scene isn't all chainsaw guitar riffs and throaty growls. For instance, members of Napalm Death, Thrones, Cattle Decapitation and more show their furry sides behind the corpse paint.

Benefits that are put toward the book will be forwarded to no-kill cat shelters on the West Coast, which is reason enough to pick up a copy even if you don't consider yourself an avid follower of the genre.

If these metal cats had thumbs they would definitely flip the sign of the horns. It's cute to see these hardcore rockers' soft sides.
