Hello everyone,

I was wondering if you could help me out with a question that I have been working on. Bands like Gojira, Wolves in the Throne Room and even Cattle Decapitation infuse ecological and sustainability related messages into their music. Are there others?

Hate to be that guy, but my Atmospheric Black/Funeral doom project has a lot of lyrics and ethos on homesteading, self sufficiency, homebrewing and shit like that. As someone who's really into all those, you can find ecological themes like that with my music

Infernal Coil are death metal in the vein of Knelt Rote and they deal with this topic a lot.

Solid work! Was it named after Cold Body Radiation's LP mixed with their name?

While clearly ecological lyrics might not be very common I think metal has had plenty of "back to the earth"/"back to nature" kind of themes. Usually it seems to stem from a more pagan mindset where one idealized that lunar world view as closer to nature in opposition to the more solar and transcendent type thinking of Christianity. Not uncommon is also a general loathing of the modern world and a will to remove oneself from it.

I dunno how to use this thing! (I mean, this is my first time using the forum) Hahaha, but I want to colaborate with this topic because I really like it :3. Looking for an answer have some lyrics of vegetarianism and environmental issues, Ecocidio is one of my favourite songs. If you enjoy grindcore/death metal, is THE band, THE ecological grindeath band xD. Another one could be Re- Animator with their album called "That Was Then... This Is Now".

I dunno what the fuck I did, but here will come my answer again xD!

This is my first time replying in a MA forum. I would like to add Looking for an Answer (grindcore/death metal), they've some lyrics about Animal Liberation (I think that some members are vegan or vegetarian) & Environmental issues. If you like the genre, that's THE band, THE grindeath ecological band! :3.
Another one could be Re-Animator (United Kingdom, thrash metal) with their album called "That Was Then... This Is Now", artwork is very explicit. Extra fact: this is not my favourite album, the only one that I really enjoy is the first one.

You'd probably be able to find some in Panopticon's work.

Yes! I think that CD is under-rated.

Demolition Hammer has a few great ones. They certainly have a way with words, those New Yorkers.

Downwind Death
Torrents of liquid death fall from infected skies
Man-made poison atmosphere, downwind death reprise
Toxic vegetation reaping fruits of ill-effect
Aquatic horror, emanating deadly manifest


Cataclysm
Solar holocaust, accumulating frost
An icy tomb awaits you
Polar caps build, glaciers rumble from the poles
Ice covered regions


Infectious Hospital Waste
Low tide, revealing a display so vile
Preys upon the unsuspecting
AIDS link, vials of unknown serum beached
By deliberate acts of dumping

Solefald’s Neonism has ecological themes but it’s buried underneath the abstract/philosophical lyrics. Definitely worth a listen, I mean he mentions Darwinism and Calvin Klein in one song but it works. It’s more of an attack on urbanization and corporatism and a move away from the old way of life (ie. when we were closer to nature
).
