The latest announcement from the MetalCamp HQ is the addition of Slayer. Call them thrash gods or just call them Slayer, but call their names at the festival main stage this summer.
Struggling with a lineup shift as Slayer’s guitarist Jeff Hanneman had to excuse himself from current tour dates due to the most metal disease ever–necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh eating infection. Exodus’s Gary Holt will be filling in for now. No word on whether Jeff Hanneman will return by MetalCamp.
MetalCamp runs from July 11 – 16, 2011 in Tolmin, Slovenia.
