    Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O'Brien will fill in for Exodus' Gary Holt when Holt leaves the Slayer European tour to play with his own band Exodus at the Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile on April 4th. Holt has been filling in for Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman since the tour kicked off February 26 in Australia. So O'Brien will fill in for Holt who is filling in for Hanneman! Oh, what a tangled metal web they weave.

    Holt's last show with Slayer will be April 4th in Padova, Italy; O'Brien will join the band for the April 6th show in Croatia, and will finish the European dates with Slayer that wrap up on April 14 in Holland.
