Eloy Casagrande Joins Sepultura


Eloy Casagrande, our friend and young prodigy, was just named the new drummer for the Brazilian Thrash Metal band Sepultura. Congratulations Eloy!

Here is a portion of the story from

Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA have announced the addition of drummer Eloy Casagrande (GLÓRIA, ANDRÉ MATOS) to their arsenal of world-class musicians, replacing Jean Dolabella as the band's full-time percussionist.

The 20-year-old drum prodigy from São Paulo, Brazil, who won the Modern Drummer "Undiscovered Drummer" contest as a teenager in 2006, is more than eager to begin his career with the veteran metal icons.

"When I got the invitation to join SEPULTURA, I was in shock," said Casagrande, who was born in Santo André, São Paulo, Brazil on January 29, 1991, the same year SEPULTURA's classic fourth album, "Arise", was released. "I'm a fan of the band for years; it'll be an honor to play with them."

Commented guitarist Andreas Kisser: "I'm sure Eloy will do a great job with SEPULTURA. He's already a musician who shows a lot of strength and technique, although he's young. We did a rehearsal with him and it was fantastic; he played the old and new material as if he was in the band for a long time. SEPULTURA will show the world another Brazilian talent on the drums."
