Brazilian thrashers, Sepultura, have announced that Eloy Casagrande will replace  Jean Dolabella on the  drums. The 20-year-old drummer from Sao Paulo, Brazil, who won the Modern Drummer Undiscovered Drummer Contest as a teenager in 2006, is more than eager to join the band. Casagrande has stated:

When I got the invitation to join Sepultura, I was in shock. I’m a fan of the band for years; it’ll be an honor to play with them.

Guitarist Andreas Kisser has also stated:

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.

Sepultura’s latest album, “Kairos,” was released in June 2011 through Nuclear Blast.
