The metal scene is known for its love of dark, depressing and disturbing imagery and ideas, and its fans are often mischaracterised as violent, hateful and misanthropic. Metal Cats is hard evidence that while the music may be brutal, the people in the scene are softies for their pets just like everyone else.

She studied at university in Sweden as well as the United States, and has a dual life in both the art and music scene and academia.
