And The Golden Gods Go To…

Posted by on April 9, 2010

Last night, Revolver Magazine held their 2nd annual Golden Gods award show in L.A. Whilethe ceremony included  performances from the likes of Rob Zombie, Slash and guests, Fear Factory, As I Lay Dying, The Devil Wears Prada and Brian Posehn’s all-star band, all we can report on at the moment is who won what. Unfortunately, we all will have to wait to actually see the performances and acceptance speeches when VH1 Classic airs it on May 22, although Revolver tried their hardest to update fans via their Twitter account. So for now, take a look below at who were the big winners from last night. You can take a look at the whole list of nominees here to see who the winners beat out. Honestly though, not many surprises. Alice In Chains were the big winners of the evening, winning both “Album Of The Year” and “Don’t Call It A Comeback”. Look for some recaps of some sort from Metal Insider correspondents early next week
