Season of Mist is partnering with the musicians of Savage Lands. Through this partnership, we’ll bang our heads together with members of Megadeth, 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-profit organization.
*Listening to Savage Lands is already donating directly to this forest preservation effort.*

More music is coming from Savage Lands next year. In the meantime, please share the news about “The Last Howl”, along with information about how the metal community can support this cause.
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 resident of Costa Rico.
“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/
