Phil Demmel left Machine Head in 2018 and he's been a pretty busy guy ever since. Demmel recently filled in for Gary Holt of Slayer during their European dates, and now Demmel is getting his old band Vio-Lence back together for one show. Vio-Lence will reunite on April 13 at the Oakland Metro in Oakland, California to perform their 1988 album Eternal Nightmare in full.
Vio-Lence's lineup for the show will consists of guitarists Phil Demmel and Ray Vegas, vocalist Sean Killian, bassist Dean Dell, drummer Perry Strickland. This only differs from the original lineup that played on Eternal Nightmare in that Vegas is replaced by Machine Head guitarist and vocalist Robb Flynn.
Now if they could get Flynn to show up, though maybe Demmel and Flynn are on two different career paths now.
