Sepultura change a band member. World yawns.

It’s happened, the very unstable lineup of Sepultura lived to see another change — drummer Jean Dollabela has left the band in order to pursue solo projects, and will be replaced by a 20-year-old “drum prodigy” Eloy Casagrande (video of him performing a solo can be seen above).

Hey, at least there’s no drama this time around, right? According to Dollabella, the split was on good terms:

I wish all the best for Sepultura and I’m very happy and excited with my new path.

From now on I’ll focus on my work as a musician, producer and music teacher in São Paulo. I’ll keep working on my project with Indireto [the Brazilian experimental project featuring Dolabella and Scarceus guitarist Augusto Nogueira] and others that are already coming along.

And Andreas Kisser had the following to say:

The period we spent with Jean in the band was very positive. We’ve recorded two great albums together and did a lot of concerts which will be in Sepultura‘s history. We only have reasons to thank him for his contribution and energy all these years.

Aaaw, how nice of them. Now let’s wait for Max to use this opportunity to push for the reunion once again. In the meantime, I watched the video of Eloy playing, and you can safely remove the quotation marks from drum prodigy. Kid’s got skills.
