Yes, you read that right. There is a brand new colouring book filled to the brim with your favourite metal stars and their cats.
Musician, jewellery designer and zinester Alexandra Crockett has put together pictures of your favourite metal bands including Black Goat, Thrones, Isis, Lightning Swords of Death, Book of Black Earth, Skarp, Harassor, Akimbo, Aldebaran, Atriarch, Oak, Ghoul, Ludicra, Holy Grail, Xasthur, Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, Exhumed, Morbid Angel, Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Gypsyhawk, Nausea, Phobia, and Napalm Death, along with many others.
On the Power House publishing website, who are selling the brand new book, this is how the book is described:
“Beginning her idea for the book by doing promotional photos for bands and friends she would cat-sit for, she found an interesting dynamic between men in the metal scene and their cats. The idea formed around giving accolades to local musicians and artists in the metal scene, while also bringing attention to no-kill shelters and their importance for animal rights.”
Here’s a few examples of what you can expect to see in the Metal Cats Colouring Book:

This got us thinking about other rock colouring books we’d love to see. Here’s a selection of what we’ve come up with:
Enter Shikari Saves The NHS
It’s pretty well documented about Enter Shikari’s mission to save the NHS – so why not turn it into a colouring book? Who wouldn’t want to get the crayons out and colour in the Enter Shikari boys assisting with heart surgery? Or frontman Rou Reynolds punching Jeremy Hunt in the face? No one.
