Slayer - Exodus Guitarist Filling In On Tour


Last weekend, we brought you the news that Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman is recovering from an emergency surgery on his right arm after contracting necrotizing fasciitis (commonly known as flesh-eating disease), possibly caused by a spider bite.

The injury will keep the guitarist sidelined from the band's upcoming live shows in the Australian Soundwave Festival tour, that is set to kick off on February 26.

None other than Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has now stepped in to replace Hanneman on this tour.

Nice, just in time to plunder the land down under.

so our marsupial metalstormers can start warming up their pipes for the mandatory "SLAY-ER! SLAY-ER!" chants. Or as they say in Australian,

"SLAYER SLAYER SLAYER OI OI OI!!!"

The word gen means "illusion" or "apparition." In India, a man who uses conjury is called a genjutsushi ["a master of illusion technique"]. Everything in this world is but a marionette show. Thus we use the word gen.

Not who I expected at all, but a very good choice. Too bad I won't be able to see it.
