Brazilian-born drumming machine Eloy Casagrande has released the first statement as a member of Slipknot.

The former Sepultura drummer, whose addition to Slipknot was officially announced on Tuesday (April 30th, 2024), posted on his social media today a photo of him wearing his Slipknot mask and outfit, and included the following message:

“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 to all the maggots and fans around the world. See you on the road. Here comes more pain.”

Slipknot made its first festival appearance of 2024 Saturday night (April 27) as one of the headliners of Sick New World in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show marked Slipknot‘s second performance with Casagrande, after their intimate show Thursday night, April 25 at Pappy + Harriet’s in Pioneertown, California.

For both shows Slipknot adopted a classic look, bringing back the 1999 red jumpsuits and elements of their early masks into their modern versions, tying into the fact that the band is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Casagrande abruptly quit Sepultura three months ago, shortly before he was supposed to begin rehearsals for the band’s recently launched 40th-anniversary farewell 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,” said the band in a statement at the time.
