And the winners of the 2014 Revolver Golden Gods Awards are…

Posted by on April 24, 2014

goldengodsTonight, the sixth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards took place in L.A. While the show is still streaming live online, we now know every band and musician who is taking home a Golden God with them tonight. And let’s just say Slayer’s opening set and Nicolas Cage presenting Axl Rose the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement weren’t the only surprises of the evening.

Black Sabbath took the night’s biggest honor, winning Album Of The Year for 13. However, they were surprisingly beaten out for Comeback Of The Year by another influential rock group, Deep Purple. The big winners of the night were Avenged Sevenfold (winning the Best Guitarists, Best Drummer, Most Dedicated Fans) and Five Finger Death Punch (winning Best Bassist and Song Of The Year). Other surprise wins included Josh Homme for Best Vocalist, Rob Zombie for Best Live Band, Twelve Foot Ninja winning Best New Talent, and Pierce The Veil for Best Film & Video.

  • Magda Marinho says:

    Scar the Martyr IS Best New Talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Roy Rogers says:

    Twelve Foot Ninja certainly deserve their award. Phenomenal band.

  • InternetToughGuy says:

    I just can’t understand how A7X managed to get into almost all of these categories. Well, actually, since voting is up to the fans, I guess I know why.

    How Arin Ilejay beat out Mike Portnoy, and Synyster Gates & Zacky Vengeance beating out Iommi let alone Petrucci is just saddening.

  • Samuel J Dillinger says:

    Congratulations to Twelve Foot Ninja. Well deserved. They’ve worked hard for this. Also, how Dillinger Escape Plan don’t win BEST LIVE BAND every year is beyond me.

  • Nick says:

    im a huge Avenged fan and I even agree with you. if anything the only award I think they should have won other than the most dedicated fan (and they aren’t even nominated for it) is Best live band. Cuz you can not deny their live performances are amazing

  • Christopher Pelton says:

    I’ll say this though, if I was on the other side of a fence and heard that god awful noise that Axl Rose calls singing these days, I’d think a cat was in serious trouble. That was just awful, and I used to be a huge GNR fan. Also Mike Patton should be on the best vocalist list every year.

    This show was horrible! Cooper and Iommi were the only cool thing about the show.
