PAUL BOSTAPH Posts Footage Of SLAYER's "Hell Awaits" With PHIL DEMMEL

Phil Demmel, perfect for every band.

Paul Bostaph has posted drum cam footage of Slayer playing "Hell Awaits" with guitarist Phil Demmel. Demmel filled in for guitarist Gary Holt for four European shows in 2018, so the footage (most likely) is from one of those four.

"Full circle. Karma. It’s so crazy how things work out. I got a text less than 24 hours after I played my last [Machine Head] note," said Demmel in 2018 after completing the run of shows. "11 years ago (almost to the day), I had to leave a tour to fly home and be with my family when my father passes away. Some amazing dudes stepped in to cover for me and to help the band out. I am filling in for a legend who was replaced a legend in a legendary band on their farewell tour.

"Despite the fact that Slayer is the reason I wanted to play heavy music, it’s beyond my utmost honor to asked to do this. Learning 19 songs (Not just songs, SLAYER songs) has been a daunting task and I have worked very hard to do Gary and the entire camp proud. As we all here send our love and support to @garyholt_official as he goes through a life altering time, the rallying this camp has done is amazing.

"Thank you all for your support as I grab the baton for a few shows and fly the Bay Area flag high on stage right. And lastly, the biggest hero is @martarino for being so selfless after having her partner home for 2 days, sends him off to follow this crazy dream. All hail the Queen."
