Lamb Of God Once Again Recruit Guitarist Phil Demmel For International Touring


Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head, etc. guitarist Phil Demmel has once again been recruited to ‘Phil-in’ with groove metal titans Lamb Of God. Demmel remains that band’s hired gun of choice, having filled in for guitarist Willie Adler on the ‘ShipRocked‘ cruise this past January.

Demmel‘s Vio-lence bandmate Sean Killian previously stated in April that Demmel‘s role came about due to Lamb Of God guitarist Adler being reluctant to partake in the COVID-19 vaccine, thus limiting his travel eligibility to certain countries.

Demmel commented on his upcoming run with the band below. You can catch him out with the platinum-certified Virginian outfit at the following shows:

08/05 Rasnov, ROM – Rockstadt Extreme Fest
08/07 Lokeren, BEL – Lokerse Festival
08/09 Ljubljana, SLO – Cvetlicarna
