Cats. We Love ‘em! Cute, cuddly, intelligent and independent, they are part of the family for millions of us. However we all know about their reputation for dabbling in the darker side.

Since the Middle Ages cats have been associated with witchcraft and demons, kept by witches as familiarsthose hellish imps that took the forms of animals to assist witches in their evil deeds”. Sounds pretty metal! Even today, some of these these stereotypes have survived. You've probably heard the one about black cats bringing bad luck, right?

Black Metal Cats is a Twitter account that celebrates the inherent doom that our feline friends possess. Bored Panda has compiled our favourite tweets from the account, perfectly pairing dark, black metal lyrics with brooding pictures of cats that hilariously capture the mood. Best viewed with slow, heavy metal music playing in the background.

Which one is your favourite? Let us know in the comments below!
