Metal for Mother Nature: How Savage Lands and Season of Mist Are Rocking the World of Conservation

Savage Lands

After seeing first-hand how deforestation threatens Costa Rica’s ecosystem, two angry metalheads started their own non-profit organization.  Named after their joint passion for savage heavy metal and wildlife preservation, SAVAGE LANDS was founded in 2022 by Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren and musician-turned-activist Sylvain Demercastel, who’s a Costa Rica resident.
 
“Hearing the chainsaw on a daily basis, because of a recent real estate fever destroying Costa Rica’s ecosystem, we thought it was time to start a new type of action”, says Sylvain. “We are reaching out to this great active community of metalheads.”
 
Today, SAVAGE LANDS are debuting their first single. “The Last Howl” features Andres Kisser (Sepultura) and John Tardy (Obituary). 100% of the song’s royalties will go toward protecting threatened lands from deforestation.
 
Listening is already donating directly to the forest preservation effort. An extra step can always be taken by directly donating to the cause through: https://savagelands.org/donation/

Record Label Season of Mist is also partnering with the musicians of Savage Lands. Through this partnership, we’ll bang our heads together with members of Megadeath, Sepultura, Obituary and other legends of metal to support forests in Costa Rica. This is the first time a record label will be partnering & releasing the music of a non-profitorganization.
