Brasilialainen metallilegenda Sepultura ilmoitti joulukuussa aikovan lopettaa uransa 18 kuukautta kestävään jäähyväiskiertueeseen. Nyt yhtyeen riveissä soittanut rumpali Eloy Casagrande on ilmoittanut bändille yhtäkkiä aikovansa lopettaa yhtyeessä keskittyäkseen ”toiseen projektiin”. Bändi on pestannut Casagranden tilalle yhtyeeseen uudeksi rumpaliksi Greyson Nekrutmanin. Voit lukea bändin tiedotteen tästä:

“The Celebrating Life Through Death Tour, a farewell tour over the next 18 months that will celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary and also its farewell to the stage.

Beginning of December the group clearly defined the intention at the announcement, it is a ‘conscious and planned death’. As poetic as it sounds, a tour of this magnitude took nearly of year of preparing and planning which would require a lot commitment, ethics and loyalty to their fans, as well as respecting for the band’s history – something that is a clear priority to Andreas KisserDerrick Green and Paulo Xisto.

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. 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.”
