Last night’s (11/1/16) exclusive live event at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, NY witnessed the official confirmation regarding this year’s Revolver Golden Gods Awards show:
For nearly a decade, Revolver Golden Gods & Epiphone have thrown the premiere & only US Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Awards Show: The Revolver Golden Gods. Despite a hiatus in 2015, Revolver & Epiphone have re-branded this exclusive one-of-a kind event as The Revolver Music Awards. Revolver expressed the great pride they take in representing both the legends as well as emerging talent in the Hard Rock & Heavy Metal scene. The Revolver Music Awards is highly revered in annually celebrating and awarding the heavy metal community’s favorite artists.
Traditionally, the Revolver Golden Gods has been held in Los Angeles, CA, but this year, Revolver has decided it will feature this highly anticipated event on Tuesday, December 13th at Webster Hall in New York City! NYC has certainly been at the forefront in paving the way for commercially successful hard rock acts: The Ramones, KISS, New York Dolls, Twisted Sister, White Zombie, Type O Negative, Carnivore, The Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Biohazard and Anthrax, to name a few.
As one-of-the BIG 4, the show will feature Megadeth as the headlining act. Additionally scheduled performances will feature Zakk Wylde, Lacuna Coil and Stitched-Up Heart. There will also be a Fall of Heroes All-Star Jam featuring Ace Frehley of KISS. Bumblefoot, Pop Evil, Butcher Babies, Iced-T, Jim Florentine…and more. Additional guests will be announced in upcoming issues of Revolver Magazine.
In previous years, The Revolver Golden Gods has aired on VH-1, Palladia, AXS TV and XBOX. This year’s Revolver Music Awards will witness its highest viewership with an exclusive live stream via Twitch.TV, a subsidiary of Amazon.com. Twitch.TV currently hosts 1.5 Million broadcasters and 100 Million visitors per month. Additional live-streams will take place via SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal & Octane, along with Guitar World, Revolver’s websites, Facebook Live and YouTube Channels.
Hosting the show this year will feature Jose Mangin & The Architect of Aggression, himself: Megadeth’s Mr. Dave Mustaine! Of course, Mustaine himself was ever-present in promotion of both this year’s awards show, along with his new signature line of beer, “A Tout Le Monde”, (translation: “I Love You All…Now I Must Go”) which was named after one of Youthanasia’s most commercially successful hit singles. Mustaine expressed his acknowledgment of NY being as worthy (if not more) as California in holding the Revolver Music Awards. Mustaine delved into the early days of Megadeth performing in NYC at the legendary L’Amour’s.
In paying tribute to late Megadeth drummer Nick Menza and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots, Mustaine shed light on his relationships with both. Megadeth’s exclusive headlining performance will also celebrate the 30th Anniversary of “Killing Is My Business”. Towards the end of his standup speech in front of many loyal and excited Megadeth fans, Mustaine invited everyone back to the bar (drinks on the house) where he proudly served his new Quebec brewed beer.
