CANNIBAL CORPSE guitarist Pat O'Brien (pictured below) 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 4. Holt has been filling in for SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman since the tour kicked off February 26 in Australia.
