Earlier this evening, Webster Hall in NYC was taken over by the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal elite for the Epiphone Revolver Music Awards which was a rebranded “Golden Gods Awards” show and was happening in our media metropolis for the very first time. I wasn’t able to attend the awards despite wanting to be there with fans and friends but you can’t be everywhere. In addition to the fan voted winners two other awards were given out and let’s start with those.
Revolver Innovator Award:
Now let’s get on to all of the winners from the fan voting that we shared weeks ago to spark you into action. If you didn’t vote and someone that you admire the music of most didn’t win the award, you only have yourself to blame. Check out the list.
Album of the Year, presented by eOne
Metallica, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”
Beating Deftones, “Gore”, Megadeth, “Dystopia”, Meshuggah, “The Violent Sleep of Reason” and Volbeat, “Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie”.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I felt that Metallica would win this one when I posted the fan voting post several weeks ago. What I wasn’t expecting to hear were boos from some parts of the audience and a confirmation that I wasn’t hearing things from a friend that was situated right in the front. That both surprised and disappointed me considering how strong the new Metallica album actually is.
Song of the Year, presented by Century Media
Ghost, “Square Hammer”
Beating Amon Amarth, “Raise Your Horns”, Megadeth, “The Threat Is Real”, Metallica, “Hardwired” and
Testament, “Brotherhood of the Snake”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I wanted this one to win as well so congratulations to Ghost on bringing more acolytes into your dark church.
