Avenged Sevenfold Dominate Golden Gods Awards
M.Shadows beat Corey Taylor and Bruce Dickinson to lift the Best Vocalist Award, while band mates Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance were jointly awarded the prize for Best Guitarist. Temporary drummer Mike Portnoy won the award in his category and the band took the plaudits with the award for Album of the Year for Nightmare.
The band also headlined the evenings show and although Portnoy didn't make an appearance he paid tribute to the late Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan saying: "It was an honour for me to play on the album and do the job the Rev wasn't able to complete. The thing that blew me away was the fans! Thank you all."
