Top 10 Metal Musicians Who Love AnimalsMetal musicians are associated with dark and scary looks, tattoos, growling vocals, roaring guitars and so on.
But behind this public image there's another truth - the truth about their soft side. Some metal musicians have dogs, some others - cats. A third group loves animals that are not dogs or cats. And last but not least, there are metal musicians who love animals in general and are animal rights activists.
Add more musicians if you know - every music fan knows more about the hobbies and personal life of their favorite musicians.
The Top Ten
She's at #1 because she loves animals in general. Alissa growls death metal vocals like a lion but she's an animal rights activist who takes part in international campaigns and received awards for her work. She has been a vegan since 1998. - Metal_Treasure
And what is her position on the rights of HUMAN animals? Since she's won an award from PETA (one of the most radical anti-human covens on the planet), she must agree with Ingrid Newkirk's pronouncement, "A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy," which, of course, states the radical animal-rights position that human life is no more valuable than animal life, and, in fact, LESS so. Since humans are inarguably, biologically, omnivores, what is her position on the human ANIMAL'S right to eat animal protein? Would she deny a grizzly bear's "right" to feast on elk, or a polar bear's "right" to kill and eat seals? You are presenting animal-rights activism (and vegetarianism) as somehow noble, when it is in truth totally conflictive and irrational at its core.
Shepherd is a good choice for favorite animal - zxm
R.I.P. Dio. He had German Shepherd(s). - Metal_Treasure
He is the singer and lyricist for deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation. You can make very wrong conclusions judging by their gory album covers, name of the metal subgenre and extremely aggressive heavy sound. You would probably misinterpret even their band name.
Their songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals, and the abuse of the environment. Travis Ryan is a vegetarian. - Metal_Treasure
Bruce owns a cat and a parrot. He also loves dogs and horses.
I guess he loves dogs, well I just think that - zxm
He really loved kittens - TheStargazer
R.I.P. Chuck. One of the Godfathers of death metal loved animals, especially kittens. - Metal_Treasure
He resides in a rural property and keeps a number of animals, including dogs, cats, chickens and a variety of birds. - Metal_Treasure
He likes dogs. When he was 11, he had a pet dog... but now get ready to read something disgusting: He witnessed his pet dog being raped by his next door neighbor! Hammett was left traumatized and recalled: "I went to my neighbor's. The guy took down his pants and started having sex with the dog! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. When he got up, I just took the dog and left." - Metal_Treasure
He loves cats and he's also a vegan. - Metal_Treasure
Very vocal about his opposition to the whaling industry - TheStargazer
He's got a dog and loves walking his dog. Lyrics of the song 'Fiddler On The Green' (Demons & Wizards) are based on something sad he saw while walking his dog - he witnessed 2 car accidents that killed 2 kids in one week at the same intersection. Sad story and a sorrowful but beautiful ballad. - Metal_Treasure
He loves cats also, Metallica has two cats: Tab and Frankie, they are almost always in their studio.
He loves dogs but he's also a hunter and he shouldn't be high on this list. - Metal_Treasure
He's a hunter
R.I.P. Randy. - Metal_Treasure
