Meet PUGTOPSY. The Black Metal Band Fronted By Pug Pupper!

By  | 

Do you think your dog has the best barks? The most brutal growls? Did you know your pupper doggo could be a heckin frontpupper of a Black Metal band? Well now you do…Meet PUGTOPSY!

This is not a joke either, the actual ‘vocalist’ is a pug puppy by the name of Pupcake Lövbacken. The rest of Pugtopsy is rounded out by guitarist Jordan Boksel, bassist Shan Dan and drummer Casey Liatorp. Before you go thinking this some fun parody act, let me remind you this band is signed to ARTERY RECORDINGS! So this pug is now probably going to be richer than you when they are selling out clubs n stuff.

The video was shared by Artery Recordings on April 1st so the career of this pug on vocals may be short but hey, this is going to a good cause! Merch is available and the profits from Pugtopsy shirts are going to Neuterhead: Ace of Spays

, a nonprofit group that assists pet rescue groups with spaying and neutering animals. The brutal vocals of this pug may be coming from the heart as possibly experiencing these horrid shelters. According to ASPCA:

  • Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats.  We estimate that the number of dogs and cats entering U.S. shelters annually has declined from approximately 7.2 million in 2011.  The biggest decline was in dogs (from 3.9 million to 3.3 million).
  • Each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats).  The number of dogs and cats euthanized in U.S. shelters annually has declined from approximately 2.6 million in 2011.  This decline can be partially explained by an increase in the percentage of animals adopted and an increase in the number of stray animals successfully returned to their owners.
  • Approximately 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted each year (1.6 million dogs and 1.6 million cats).
  • About 710,000 animals who enter shelters as strays are returned to their owners. Of those, 620,000 are dogs and only 90,000 are cats.

So what does everyone think? Should PUGTOPSY tour? Who should they tour with? I can surely see the memes coming such as ‘Fit For A PUGTOPSY’. HECKIN BAMBOOZLED! Listen to the track below!
