Derrick Green Rocks!

Derrick Green is the frontman of legendary metal band Sepultura, and he is also a long time vegan. He joined Sepultura in 1998 after the departure of their original vocalist and in that time he has recorded eight studio albums with the band and toured the world. Their most recent album “Quadra” was released in 2020.
Derrick was first inspired to ditch meat after attending gigs in the 80s’ hardcore punk scene and learning of the realities of slaughterhouses. He says, “..what had a big impact was CRO-MAGS just for the fact this band were vegetarians and they had reading material about being vegetarian so it really kicked it off for me to sample and experiment with this, and it stuck with me, this lifestyle of being a vegan, actually.”
In an interview with PETA, Green talked about the time when he first stopped eating animals, “I had always eaten meat my entire life, and I never questioned it until that time in my life when I started questioning a lot of things. I experimented with not eating meat. And then after a while, I didn’t have the desire to eat it anymore. I just opened my mind to it and just stayed with it.”
While he grew up in the US, Derrick is these days based in Brazil, the birthplace of Sepultura in the 80s. Speaking about the ease of sourcing animal-free products, he said, “There’s definitely more variety. There’s even vegetarian stuff in supermarkets here in Brazil. So it’s incredible!”
Green has also helped to educate others on the violent reality of the meat industry by including abattoir footage in the music video of the Sepultura song, “Convicted in Life.”
Green sums up his view on Animal Rights by saying,: “Animal rights is important because you can really tell how civilised a society is by the way that it treats its animals.”
