For those that might be interested, last night the Revolver Golden Gods Awards for 2014 took place and were streamed across the Internet over mediums such as Amazon.com to name one of the few and as in the past, the greats of the Metal Scene assembled en masse in order to honor talent and achievement in our crushing genre.

I secured the winning list from the official Revolver Magazine site and wanted to get it out to you readers of the PM.com blog so you are in the know in case you didn’t watch the streaming video and were otherwise engaged but dying to know the results. I admit that I didn’t really watch too much of it this year but will watch the highlight reel that will air on VH1 Classic in the coming weeks for sure. Despite that I did notice a lot of my Metal Media friends were in attendance and thanks to their numerous Facebook postings I was able to enjoy the happenings through their eyes. Here are the winners in the various categories.

Full Winners:
Best Vocalist: Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age
Best Live Band: Rob Zombie
Most Devoted Fans: Avenged Sevenfold
Best New Talent: Twelve Foot Ninja
Comeback of the Year: Deep Purple
Paul Gray Best Bassist Award: Chris Kael, 5FDP
Best Film & DVD: Pierce the Veil
Best Drummer: Arin Ilejay, Avenged Sevenfold
Song of the Year: Five Finger Death Punch, ‘Lift Me Up’
Most Metal Athlete: Josh Barnett, Mixed Martial Arts
Dimebag Darrell Best Guitarist: Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, Avenged Sevenfold
Album of the Year: Black Sabbath, ’13?
Golden God Award: Joan Jett
Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award: Axl Rose

The night featured performances by Slayer, A Day To Remember, The Pretty Reckless, Suicide Silence (who were joined by Max Cavalera for “Roots Bloody Roots”), Joan Jett and Guns N’ Roses. Clearly Avenged Sevenfold were the big winner this time around and made me think back to the time when the Foo Fighters won almost every Hard Rock and Metal category during the Grammy’s a few years ago. Their a band that I still need to catch in concert so perhaps when they headline this years Rockstar Mayhem Festival. What are your thoughts about the winners of these awards and if you saw the show what did you think of it? Let us know in the comments below which have been left open for your thoughts.

The Winners Of The 2013 Revolver Golden Gods Awards Are…

Poster - Revolver Golden Gods - 2013

Hey so the other night we had the Revolver Golden Gods awards happening out in California at the Club Nokia and like all awards shows this features a lot of patting on the backs, speeches and special performances but of course this one is focused on the Metal greats. It is here that fans get the chance to hear what keeps the nominees and hopeful winners inspired and as Metal as possible and they are chosen by the readers via a several month tallied poll. I generally post the poll for you all to participate but am not sure I did it for this go round. Sorry, I get busy over here at the Command HQ and neglect a thing or two every now and again. Anyways, that being said I saw a few clips online but did not manage to find time and sit through the whole show. Considering I was not there to enjoy it in person and that there was much toasting and celebrating Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman, I felt watching on television would not be as cool as being there. Despite that, I figured that our readers might want to see who won what award so here now the list.

The winners were all posted up and I copied the list directly from the Revolver Magazine page for your easier digestion. Take a look……we can discuss afterward.

• “Album of the Year” (presented by Orange Amplification): Deftones, “Koi No Yokan”
• “Best Guitarist” (presented by Epiphone): John 5, of Rob Zombie
• “Best Drummer” (presented by Drum Workshop): Arejay Hale, of Halestorm
• “Paul Gray Best Bassist” (presented by Dean Markley): Lemmy Kilmister, of Motörhead
• “Best Vocalist” (presented by Rockstar Energy Drink): Corey Taylor, of Slipknot and Stone Sour
• “Song of the Year” (presented by Affliction): Black Veil Brides, “In The End”
• “Best Live Band” (presented by Samson): Slipknot
• “Best New Talent” (presented by Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival): Device
• “Most Metal Athlete” (presented by Roadrunner Records): Triple H
• “Comeback of the Year” (presented by Eagle Rock): Tenacious D
• “Most Dedicated Fans” (presented by Xbox LIVE): HIM

So without trying to offend anyone, I am really not too keen on this list of winners because I have been around the Metal block a lot these last few years and just think that there are so many more extraordinary things happening out there that seem to have been overlooked. Oh well. For some I guess this winning list kicks major ass but for me it just doesn’t outside of a couple of them. I’ll let you try to figured out who I was 100% behind on your own time. Now tell me what you all thought. I would so love to hear your own opinions on this stuff. The comments are open.
