Metal Monday

I love metal music, and I love animals as you can all tell. When the two happen to come together, I think it's twice as Badass! Recently, I became aware of a Grindcore band called "Caninus", from Brooklyn, NY, who record and use their Pit Bull dogs as lead singers (To listen in, Visit the Caninus MySpace page. The guys promote animal rights and vegan lifestyle from what I can tell on their site, but I can't help but laugh when I listen... They say all they wanted to do is have fun and play music, and I can totally identify with that... the dogs are pretty cute too. Suck on that Michael Vick.

Another interesting article I read was For Those About To Squawk. This one highlights a similar situation with a an African Grey Parrot named "Waldo" who sings lead for a band called "Hatebeak". I've seen birds do some pretty crazy stuff, everything from beat boxing to head banging, and I believe they could probably head up a metal band too... this bird proves it.

Score one for all these animals who continue to prove that they are more than just feathers and fur, they are our best friends, and they're our family. Sometimes these magnificent creatures show us that they can do whatever we do... maybe even better.

Do yourself a favor, check out their MySpaces/links above and listen in... and have a Happy Metal Monday you animals you!
