A new non-profit initiative named And Justice For Paws... was recently launched by Bob Legowe, co-owner of Brutal Panda Records. The initiative will raise money and awareness for domestic and wild cats, all with a heavy metal twist. The series aims to release a fundraising metal compilation in each of the 50 states, kicking off with a New York edition that features songs by Tombs, Imperial Triumphant, Car Bomb, Unearthly Trance, and more (listed in full below).
Besides the compilation, there will be merchandise such as patches and custom catnip containers for sale online.
Lugowe shares his inspiration for the project:
Like many people, animals and music are two of my biggest passions and I've always strived to find the perfect way to combine the two for a greater good. I decided there was no better way to do this than showcase like-minded bands and artists who are equally impassioned about their pets and want to make a difference in their local scene. I've started by partnering up with City Critters in NYC from whom I adopted my wonderfully weird orange furball Mr. Fink. We could all stand to learn more from animals and I hope that these compilations and silly merchandise will play even a tiny role in doing just that.
