It’s official: Revolver Magazine’s readers love Avenged Sevenfold. The band cleaned up big at the 3rd Annual Revolver Golden Gods Award Show. In addition to picking up “Best Album Of The Year” for Nightmare, singer M. Shadows received the award for “Best Vocalist” while guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance picked up the “Best Guitarist(s)” award. Plus, drummer Mike Portnoy, who recorded drums on Nightmare and toured with the band behind the album, won the “Best Drummer” award.
But the award show also proved that fans and Revolver Magazine aren’t the only ones who love A7X. First, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and Rob Trujillio come out to introduce the band’s six song set. Then, after performing “Nightmare” and “Beast And The Harlot,” A7X performed the Guns N’ Roses classic “It’s So Easy” with ex-GN’R bassist Duff McKagan. Then, after playing “Bat Country,” the band is joined by none other than Vinnie Paul for a rendition of Pantera’s “Mouth Of War.”
While we are still searching for video of these performances, our friends at Metal Injection tweeted the picture of A7X performing with Paul live from the show. While highlights of the show will be aired on VH1 Classic on May 28, we’re sure that YouTube videos will pop up shortly.
Here’s a list of who else won at the Revolver Golden God Award Show last night:
Rammstein- “Best Live Band”
The Murderdolls- “Comeback Of The Year”
Black Veil Brides- “Best New Band”
