OPETH, MOTÖRHEAD, AMON AMARTH Members Among Swedish Rockers Supporting Animal Rights

Swedish progressive metallers OPETH have issued the following update:

"Djurens Rätt, Sweden's largest non-profit animal rights organisation, asked if [OPETH drummer Martin 'Axe' Axenrot] and his cat Max would be interested in being photographed for a very special calendar of rock stars and their pets. Axe being a big animal lover didn't hesitate one second, which resulted in Max and Axe being Misters July! Members of AMON AMARTH, CRUCIFIED BARBARA, DEAD BY APRIL, DIA PSALMA, HAMMERFALL, MANDO DIAO, MILLENCOLIN, MOTÖRHEAD, SONIC SYNDICATE, THE HIVES and THE SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES all had their pics taken with their pets as well, so if you want to see a slightly different side of your favourite rock band, we suggest you order one of these beauties right away.

"Swedish fans can buy it here, and if you live abroad you can go to this location (PayPal only).

"All profit goes straight into the important work these nice people at Djurens Rätt do."
