Affliction Clothing's web channel "Affliction Vision" will be streaming live video from the "black carpet" at the first annual Epiphone Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which is being held today (Tuesday, April 7) at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles. It will be hosted by OZZY OSBOURNE/ex-ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson starting at 6:00 p.m. PST. Log in, watch and chat at this location.
A 30-second commercial for Epiphone Revolver Golden Gods Awards — featuring Ronnie James Dio (HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX) and Vinnie Paul Abbott (HELLYEAH, PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN) — can be viewed below.
America's first-ever hard rock and heavy metal music award show will be broadcast on MTV2 as a one-hour special debuting Saturday, May 2. The ultimate evening of heavy music will feature performances from MEGADETH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, HATEBREED, ALL THAT REMAINS and SUICIDE SILENCE, along with a very special DJ set from SLIPKNOT's Corey Taylor to kick off the event. The night will culminate with rock legend Ozzy Osbourne being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine commends Revolver on the awards, noting: "Finally a heavy metal award, of the people, by the people, and for the people! This evening's line-up of talent is a heavy metal fan's wet dream! Only Revolver would have the credibility to make our dreams come true with the first annual Golden Gods Awards. To see Ozzy get a lifetime achievement is long overdue. It is an honor to say, 'YES! MEGADETH will headline!' I doubt JETHRO TULL will be getting an award."
Hosted by actor/comic Brian Posehn ("The Sarah Silverman Program"), the night — a celebration of one of rock's most enduring and fan-supported genres — will also feature special appearances by MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister, Glenn Danzig, Maynard James Keenan of TOOL and PUSCIFER, Jonathan Davis of KORN, ALICE IN CHAINS, Vinnie Paul, Scott Ian, Olympic gold-medalist Shaun White, Chuck Billy of TESTAMENT, PROTEST THE HERO, Marta Peterson from BLEEDING THROUGH, ISIS, Ken Susi and Trevor Phipps of UNEARTH, Brendon Small from DETHKLOK, STEEL PANTHER, WWE wrestler CM Punk, Sirius XM radio host Jose Mangin, "Chaos" radio host Full Metal Jackie and many more.
