The host, Anthrax icon Scott Ian, had this to say: “It’s a good thing I just found my Killers T from 1982 because I can wear it while hosting the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards! See you all down there for a night of killer bands, killer booze and killer metal! Hey, there’s a theme developing here…”
Live bands performing
KILLING JOKE, one of the most influential post-punk bands of all time, their music has influenced some of rock’s greatest such as NIN, Nirvana and Ministry. Playing in their hometown of London, it will certainly be a show to remember!
AT THE GATES made their successful comeback in 2014 with the release of their first album in 19 years. Considered to be one of the major progenitors of the melodic death metal sound, they will honour us with their presence and performance at this year’s show!
BABYMETAL, the international pop-metal sensations, have gone from strength to strength since exploding onto the scene in early 2014, selling out shows and arenas across the world, and are now bringing their Metal Resistance to the Golden Gods for an exclusive one-off performance backed by power metal giants, DRAGONFORCE! All hail the FOX GOD!
WE ARE HARLOT are on a mission: to be the band to bring back rock! Fronted by Danny Worsnop, who previously led Asking Alexandria to a No. 5 debut on the Billboard 200, the quartet have a classic, hard-edged sound. Their debut self-titled album is critically acclaimed worldwide and they’re ready to inject the Golden Gods with a huge dose of rock’n’roll swagger.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, created in 1981 by vocalist Mike Muir, are one of the few crossover-thrash acts to break out onto the world circuit. More than 30 years later and they’re one of the most iconic and notorious bands from that era and it’s an honour to have them grace the Golden Gods stage this year.
