Megadeth To Headline Metal Awards Show Where Ozzy Will Be Honored

03/10/2009
.
(PR) Megadeth has just been confirmed to headline the first annual Golden Gods Awards on April 7 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles.

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 also feature performances from 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 (DJ? WTF?). The night will culminate with rock legend Ozzy Osbourne being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

After over 20 million albums sold worldwide, metal legends Megadeth remain at the top of their game. The band are the reigning kings of thrash, with a classic catalog that stretches from Rust In Peace and Peace Sells…But Who's Buying? to their latest critically-acclaimed creation United Abominations. Megadeth has headlined stadiums around the globe for 25 years and influenced a generation with their classic sounds, incendiary and thought-provoking lyrics and screaming guitars. The band is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to 2007's United Abominations which will see its release in late '09.

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 Motφrhead'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.
