SEPULTURA Introduces New Drummer At Brazilian 'Dante XXI' Release Party: Photos Available

Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA made their first public appearance with their new drummer, Jean Dolabella (ex-UDORA), last Tuesday (July 11) at Clube Belfiore in São Paulo during the Brazilian release party for their new CD, "Dante XXI". Check out pictures at Whiplash.net.

Dolabella joined SEPULTURA as the replacement for founding member Igor Cavalera, who left the band last month due to "artistic differences."

Igor announced earlier in the year that he was taking a break from the group's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son (who was born in January). Filling in on drums during the band's European tour with IN FLAMES was Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max in SOULFLY for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003.

Igor is the second Cavalera to leave SEPULTURA. In 1996, Max Cavalera exited the group after the rest of the band fired Max's wife Gloria as SEPULTURA's manager.
