SEPULTURA launch ‘Guardians of Earth’ Music VideoSEPULTURA have launched their environmentally conscious video for ‘Guardians of Earth’ in collaboration with Amazon Frontlines. Amazon Frontlines is a non-profit organization based in the Upper Amazon that leverages technology, legal advocacy and movement building to support indigenous peoples to defend their rights to land, life and cultural survival in the Amazon Rainforest.
The lyrics of the song were inspired when Derrick Green came across the Instagram page of Amazon Frontlines:
“The images of the fight and struggle of various Indigenous tribes, whose existence is under threat as they defend one of world’s most biodiverse ecosystems, were very touching and upsetting. Not only are Indigenous peoples being murdered but their rainforest territories are being burned and polluted at an alarming rate. The movement is inspirational and I felt that their voices needed to be heard loudly.”
“We appreciate Sepultura not only because they’re one of the greatest metal bands of all time, but because they are using their platform to shine a light on deforestation and the struggles of Indigenous peoples,” said Amazon Frontlines’ Executive Director, Mitch Anderson. “By sharing these stories with the world through their music, Sepultura is doing their part to support Indigenous communities, the Guardians of Earth, as they lead the fight to protect the Amazon Rainforest and the planet.”
The video is directed by Brazilian director Raul Machado who worked with the band on the ‘Choke’ music video back in 1998.
