As you saw last week, the band confirmed Eloy’s identity on their social media pages. And now, Sepultura’s former drummer has confirmed on his Insta account.

“It’s an exciting moment. Unthinkable until then. There is nothing to lose, there is nothing to win. There is just living. We’re here as one. Thank you Slipknot for trusting me. Thanks all the maggots and fans around the world. See you on the road. Here comes more pain.”

Casagrande made his debut with Slipknot at a last-minute intimate club show at the Pappy & Harriet’s Barbecue Bar in California on April 25. The band wore their classic red jumpsuits they wore in 1999 during their debut.

Interestingly, there’s still one member of the band whose identity isn’t confirmed or revealed. Longtime keyboardist Craig Jones left last year – but who replaced him?

If you’re gonna replace a metal drummer – who better than Sepultura’s drummer?
