The 21-year-old Nekrutman is one of the most explosive young players in the drumming world, having garnered a legion of fans since bursting on to the international music scene just a few short years ago.

Greyson is featured on ALICE IN CHAINS vocalist William Duvall‘s “11.12.21 Live-In-Studio Nashville” CD, which came out in June 2022. Nekrutman has also performed or recorded with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, Bakithi Kumalo, Darren Criss, Drumeo, Pearl Drums, Meinl Cymbals and has been featured in articles by Rolling Stone, Rhythm, Rhythm And Drum (Japan) and Sweetwater Music.

SEPULTURA announced Eloy‘s departure on February 27, explaining in a statement that he was leaving to join “another project”, with some fans speculating that he will be the new drummer of SLIPKNOT.

The news of Eloy‘s exit from SEPULTURA came just two months after the band announced it would celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2024 by embarking on a “farewell tour” which will cover the entire globe.

In SEPULTURA‘s statement, the remaining bandmembers expressed their shock over Casagrande‘s departure, saying they were “taken by surprise” that their now-former drummer would “abandon everything related to SEPULTURA” less than a month prior to the start of the tour.

“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.”

Casagrande, who joined SEPULTURA 13 years ago as the replacement for Jean Dolabella, later took to his social media to write: “I would like to announce my departure from SEPULTURA.

“Being part of the biggest Brazilian metal band was one of the best experiences of my life. I just want to thank the band and crew members.

“It was a story of almost 13 years, in which I had the opportunity to learn and contribute with every song, show and recording. These were years of great dedication, intensity and commitment. We did 3 studio albums very well received by the 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 that will come. We are made of choices and they are not always easy. My departure will never erase my respect and gratitude to the band.

“There is a lot to come and I hope to continue making a lot of music and art. See you on the road.”

Nekrutman also commented on his addition to SEPULTURA‘s lineup, writing in a statement: “Today I express my heartfelt gratitude for the incredible opportunity to join the legendary ranks of SEPULTURA for their farewell tour.

“To contribute to this legacy is a privilege that fills me with both honor and excitement. SEPULTURA‘s fearless approach to exploring new territories in the metal sphere is something that I have always admired and strived to emulate in my own musical endeavors.”

He continued: “I am eagerly looking forward to adding my own spirit and passion to the mix, to connecting with the fans who have supported the band through its evolution, and to the electrifying experiences we’ll create together on stage. Here’s to the new chapters we’ll write together, to the stages we’ll conquer, and to the powerful music we’ll unleash upon the world.”

Confirmed “Celebrating Life Through Death” tour dates so far include shows in South America and Europe. More concerts will be announced soon.
