Not to get too serious nor too silly, but these attempts to 'humanize', 'soften', 'pussify' or 'publicize' musicians that otherwise come off or attempt to come off as bad motherfuckers with a stiffy for Satan are downright embarrassing...

Cats are way cooler than metal fans.

You make it sound like this is some widespread trend. Is it?

Eh, that's not so big of a deal to me. I have noticed that a surprisingly high percentage of metalheads are cat people, and a picture of a tough metal guy with a fluffy cat is just kind of funny. If they're cool with putting it out there, I'm cool with seeing it and smiling at it. I don't really equate this with, say, a book called "Metalheads are Bronies Too!" or something. And I'm far too old to actually believe that most metal guys are really as grim and self-serious in real life as they make out in their interviews and promo pics.

I have to admit, I even willingly sent an interviewer a picture of me pretend-biting my cat: http://allabouttherock.co.uk/interview-unspeakable-axe-records-owner-eric-mr-axe-musall/ But then again, I'm not trying to pass myself off as a badass metal guy either, because I'm totally not.

I don't this is a big deal to anyone. I just think is quite absurd and nonsensical. Not believing this is a trend at all, I just wonder about the motives and reasons behind a whole book called Metal Cats, which is where these photos come from.

No one really imagines these dudes as all that grim, or at least not me, I just ask myself why a musician (and perhaps an underground musician), would even go for it...

-Hey would you like to be on a book with your cat? It'll be beyond cute.
-Yessssssssssssssss please!!!

I have a hard time imagining why anybody would give a shit about this, or how its a good idea to invest any time in at all.

Alex tried to get me OR my roommate at the time to take a photo for this rag like 4 years ago. NOOOOO WAY! So glad I told her no as well.
