Your New Favorite Twitter Account: Black Metal Cats

Posted by on February 4, 2016 at 1:35 pm

Social media has long been derided as the home of ridiculous cat pictures, videos and memes. This is true. Black metal is held dear by its fans as an art form worth taking seriously. This is also true. However. I love cats, I love black metal- and all extreme metal has a tongue-in-cheek quality to it. So, why not bring these two things together?

Presenting your new favorite Twitter account: Black Metal Cats!!!

The page takes epic looking photos of cats in snowy, heavily forested landscape and presents them with lyrics from great black metal classics. Most of the cats are Norwegian Forest Cats (or Maine Coons, they look pretty similar), naturally. It’s totally ridiculous…but it’s also totally awesome. Here are some highlights below, with links to the songs themselves.

Immortal- In My Kingdom Cold

Mayhem- De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

Darkthrone- Under a Funeral Moon

Marduk- Stone Stands its Final Vigil

Emperor- The Majesty of the Night Sky

Satyricon- Into the Mighty Forest

Immortal- A Sign For the Norse Hordes to Ride

Graveland- Thousand Swords
(This selection is sure to cause some hand-wringing, but that image is just too perfect)

Urgehal- Conjure the Hordes of Blasphemy

Dimmu Borgir- Det Nye Riket

Behemoth- Moonspell Rites

Immortal- Noctumbulant

Emperor- Beyond the Great Vast Forest
(Favorite Emperor song!)

Dimmu Borgir- Gud's Fortapelse Åpenbaring Av Dommedag

Basically any black metal song.
