METALLICA will be headlining Revolver’s 5th Annual Golden Gods Awards, on May 2nd in Los Angeles, and will be the recipients of the RONNIE JAMES DIO Lifetime Achievement Award.
Says Metallica: “Wow… a Lifetime Achievement award? Are we worthy? So say our friends over at Revolver Magazine and we are beyond honored that we will be the recipients of the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award at the fifth annual Golden Gods Awards Show on Thursday, May 2nd at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA. We are about to join some incredible stellar company with previous winners RUSH, LEMMY KILMISTER, OZZY OSBOURNE and MÖTLEY CRÜE.
The night will be quite the party as Chris Jericho (FOZZY) hosts America’s only hard rock awards show that will be broadcast live for the first time ever on AXS TV in North America and globally through Xbox LIVE and Facebook. We’ll be playing a couple of songs live as will many of our touring buddies including ANTHRAX, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, STONE SOUR, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, and others. ROB ZOMBIE and Tony Iommi (BLACK SABBATH) will be on hand to receive awards of their own… the Golden God and Riff Lord awards, respectively.
Fans everywhere will be able to vote for their favs for a number of awards to be presented that night (see the complete list in the official press release). Voting is currently open at GoldenGodsAwards.com and ends on April 15th.
