Twitch and YouTube personality Nik Nocturnal is back to respond to our Loud List of Death Metal Musicians Being Wholesome by.
“This is the best clip in the world,” Nik says of one classic Metal Injection video where cannibalistic‘s Morgue grinder was out shopping at Target. “Everyone should watch this clip, really every day, but definitely during the holidays. It’s so healthy.”
Chuck Schulinder is not only the godfather of death metal, he is the godfather of wholesome death metal moments. While being interviewed on MTV, Schuldiner wore a shirt with cats on it to “dispel any misconception” that death metal artists are cruel to animals. Nik loved Schuldiner’s composure during the interview, but he had even better things to say Obituary‘s Don Tardy.
Tardy has made it a habit for many years to take care of dozens of feral cats in his hometown. Nik gave Tardy a metal “aww” when the drummer talked about having a big heart and using some of his money to feed some needy animals.
“Get you a man who can do both,” Nik said. “Foot some kittens on the street and go, ‘Ohhhhh!’ That is what everyone should strive for.”
