Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA played on December 4, 2011 at Trix in Antwerp, Belgium as part of the “Thrashfest Classics” European tour with EXODUS, DESTRUCTION, HEATHEN and MORTAL SIN.
Multi-camera video footage of SEPULTURA performing the song “Desperate Cry” during the Antwerp concert can be seen below.
SEPULTURA‘s setlist for “Thrashfest Classics” consists of material exclusively from the “Beneath The Remains”, “Arise” and “Chaos A.D.” albums. The trek’s other co-headliner, EXODUS, is performing songs from the “Bonded By Blood”, “Pleasures Of The Flesh” and “Fabulous Disaster”; DESTRUCTION is playing tracks from “Sentence Of Death” and “Infernal Overkill”; and HEATHEN is performing selections from “Breaking The Silence” and “Victims Of Deception”. MORTAL SIN‘s setlist consists of material from the “Mayhemic Destruction” and “Face Of Despair” albums.
SEPULTURA played its first show with new drummer Eloy Casagrande (GLÓRIA, ANDRÉ MATOS) on November 25 in Lichtenfels, Germany.
Casagrande joined SEPULTURA as the replacement for Jean Dolabella, who left the band because he could no longer handle being away from home for long periods of time.
Eloy is a 20-year-old drum prodigy from São Paulo, Brazil who won the Modern Drummer “Undiscovered Drummer” contest as a teenager in 2006.
Dolabella left SEPULTURA after a five-year run of relentless touring and two studio albums. He joined SEPULTURA in 2006 following the departure of the band’s original drummer, Igor Cavalera.
SEPULTURA is touring in support of its 12th studio album, and Nuclear Blast Records debut, “Kairos”, which hit stores in July.
