The Black Siren usually doesn’t get personal. But, in this case, we can’t help but make an exception.
While updating our headlines this afternoon with Papa Emeritus‘ surprising candid remarks about Pop music, our editor-in-chief’s umbrella cockatoo was caught ‘red-taloned’ getting into Ghost‘s “Year Zero.” She just managed to capture some birdie headbanging and a sinister laugh [:36] that would even make a Nameless Ghoul proud.
T. Ray’s response: “I didn’t hatch him, but there’s no doubt he’s my baby.”
Kay Kay the cockatoo is a 12-year-old rescue from the Southern Nevada Parrot Rescue and Rehoming Society who was bounced from foster home to foster home until Ray fell in love and gave him a permanent residence with her and his jenday conure brother, Khukla.
Another famous Metal birdie is the notorious amazon singing Drowning Pool‘s “Bodies” while she thought no one was looking:
For those with an eye for art, the large picture in Kay Kay’s background (coincidentally and appropriately) is a custom-framed, limited edition, numbered print of “Spirit” by Zbigniew M. Bielak.
