Slayer Phil Demmel

Former MACHINE HEAD and VIO-LENCE guitarist Phil Demmel made his live debut with SLAYER last night (Monday, December 3) at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.

After the show, Demmel took to his social media sites to write: “Never has 90 minutes gone by faster. Made a few mistakes but I feel really good about this 1st one. Much love to all of you for the ongoing support.”

Demmel is filling in for SLAYER‘s guitarist of the past eight years, Gary Holt, who announced on Sunday that he would miss the rest of the current SLAYER European trek in order to return home and be with his dying father.
