“It’s always bullshit, right?”, replied Andreas, when asked if the separation was peaceful or troubled.

Afterwards, Roman Laurito (who also presents the program) asked Andreas if Eloy is going to join the American band Slipknot (a rumor that started to gain strength in recent months).

“Man, I don’t know, old man. So, what he told us was that he was leaving the band to dedicate himself to another project, to do something else. The day before the tour, anyway”, reported the guitarist, who gave more details about the breakup.

“Man, we already knew that Eloy is a phenomenal musician, probably the best drummer on the scene, right? He’s a guy who really, you see veteran drummers, the guys are impressed to see him play. He has a really fantastic technique.

We knew there could be a possibility of him having another proposal, another possibility of doing it. But it was very strange, the way he chose to do things, because we were organizing [detalhes da tour de despedida do Sepultura]. Two days before he broke the news, we were organizing the setlist, doing the big screen thing, the details, how it’s going to be, how it’s going to work, what song we’re going to play, what the visuals are going to be, etc. And suddenly, he decided to do this, well, it seems to me that he had been organizing a process for some time and decided to speak at that moment.

So, I’m not going to judge, because it’s beside the point. We have already announced that he left and he is going to announce what he is going to do, in short, it is his responsibility. But we have a phenomenal drummer, one more”, added Kisser, referring to Greyson Nekrutman, Sepultura’s new drummer.

The full interview can be seen below. Andreas talks about Eloy Casagrande around 1 hour and 42 minutes into the video.

Eloy Casagrande’s departure

Sepultura announced the departure of Eloy Casagrande through a post shared on social media.

“On February 6th, a few days before the first rehearsal (for the farewell tour), in an extraordinary meeting, drummer Eloy Casagrande informed the band and managers of his departure from Sepultura, to pursue a career in another project.

The band was taken by surprise, without prior notice or any kind of debate about how to make the transition. Communication was made and he immediately left the band, abandoning everything related to Sepultura.

Fortunately, the virtuoso American drummer Greyson Nekrutman will take over from Eloy Casagrande, and will be welcomed as a new member of the band on the Celebrating Life Through Death farewell tour,” the statement said.

Eloy’s version of his departure

On the same day that Sepultura announced Eloy’s departure, the drummer gave his version about the end of the professional relationship, which began in 2011.

“I would like to announce my departure from Sepultura. Being part of the biggest Brazilian metal band was one of the best and richest experiences of my life. I would like to thank each and every member and the entire team.

It was a story of almost 13 years, in which I had the opportunity to learn and contribute with each song, show and recording. These were years of great dedication, intensity and commitment. There were 3 albums very well received by critics, countless shows on 5 continents and a lot of stories to tell. So, first of all, I reiterate my thanks to Sepultura and the fans for everything we’ve been through.

Maybe for the band’s fans it doesn’t make sense at this point, but decisions needed to be made thinking about new cycles to come. We are made of choices and they are not always easy. My departure will never erase my respect and gratitude to the band.

Fortunately, there is much to come. I hope to continue making a lot of music and art. See you soon on the road!” wrote Eloy.

While he was a member of Sepultura, Eloy recorded the albums “The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart”, “Machine Messiah”, “Quadra” and “Sepulquarta”.
