Relolver Magazine Are a Bunch of Sluts

2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards Announced

Fresh off the pop music carnival known as the Grammys, with the dreaded Academy Awards looming around the corner, it’s official, kiddies. We’re balls deep in irrelevant awards season right now and the Hood Metal faithful are feeling a bit neglected. FEAR NOT, BITCHES! Recognizing the elite of metal, or whoever happens to be promoting a new record at the time, Revolver Magazine will once again throw their hat in the ring, offering up a fourth helping of the annual Golden Gods Awards.

Hosted by tamer of lions, WWE’s Chris Jericho (dubbed the “Billy Crystal of Metal” by one Mike Portnoy), the awards are going down Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 at Club Nokia in the City of Angels. April 11th also marks the opening of The Grammy Museum’s new Golden Gods: The History of Heavy Metal exhibit. An exhibit that will feature all sorts of historical metal shit including Ronnie James Dio’s hand-written lyrics for “Holy Diver” and Jonathon Davis‘ bagpipes. No word yet on whether the exhibit will feature Devin Townsend’s once glorious skullet, Tommy Lee’s custom made Fleshlight, or the coveted table James Hetfield has now taken the form of. Overall, the exhibit should be a pretty sweet deal. Fuck, I can’t even mention “Holy Diver” without imagining myself riding tigers through the starlit sky. So fucking majestic.

Anyway, tickets on sale, blah blah blah. When I run through the nominees later, ya’ll are sure to not give a fuck. However, there is one slightly bitchin’ piece of information regarding the program. Partnering up with the Revolver Golden Gods Awards to bring you a live broadcast of the event for the first time is XBOX 360. IKNORITE? As weak as the actual awards are, it’ll be pretty sweet to see metal and hard rock icons rubbing elbows, binge drinking and getting their ultimate BRO on at one of the biggest sausage-fests in history, LIVE.

I’m sure I’m delusional about this being the Hood Metal viewing event of the year, but I can’t help but be intrigued by some of the least employable dirtbags of society (and I say that lovingly) getting all suited & booted to hit the town, rat-pack style. Granted, this ain’t Revolver’s first rodeo with this freak show, but without the ability to actually watch the train wreck go down live, my interest has been a big fat goose egg. This time around, you better believe my ass will be strapped into the recliner with the liquor dispensing helmet fully engaged.
