SEPULTURA – Drummer Eloy Casagrande Quits, To Join SLIPKNOT?

SEPULTURA drummer Eloy Casagrande has left the band and been replaced by Greyson Nekrutman.

The Brazilian extreme metal four-piece, who will next month start their Celebrating Life Through Death farewell tour before breaking up in 2025, announced the news on social media today (February 27).

“Welcome @greyson_nekrutman to Sepultura who replaces @eloycasagrande who has decided to leave Sepultura,” they wrote.

“Greyson’s first shows with us starts March 1 as we kick off the Celebrating Life Through Death Farewell Tour.”

The band also declared their shock over Casagrande’s exit, saying they were “taken by surprise” that their now-former drummer would “abandon everything related to Sepultura”.

“February 6th, a few days prior to the first rehearsal, drummer Eloy Casagrande informed the band that he was leaving Sepultura to pursue a career in another project,” they said.

“The band were taken by surprise, without prior warning, he immediately left the band, abandoning everything related to Sepultura.

“Luckily American virtuoso Greyson Nekrutman will take the position of Eloy Casagrande and is welcomed as the band’s new drummer for the Celebrating Life Through Death farewell tour.”

A rumor going around has Eloy jumping ship to join Slipknot.
