Alexandra Crockett's photo book 'Metal Cats' documents metalheads and their beloved feline companions.

Who would have thought that these head-thrashing heavy metal musicians would also be cat-lovers? Crockett's project just goes to show you that you can never judge a book by its cover.

That being said, there is still something inherently comical about the images featured in the book. I mean, these aggressive, growling members of bands with names of Napalm Death and Cattle Decapitation look pretty funny snuggling with their precious kitty cats. It's also pretty heart-warming, and many of the photos will be sure to elicit of a chorus of "aww's!" Also aww-worthy is the fact that proceeds from the book will be donated to no-kill cat shelters on the West Coast.
