Metal Hammer’s Golden Gods awards night returned this Monday, celebrating the best of Metal from the last 12 months! The demonic Golden Gods made right here at the Alchemy Studios, has proven to be a massive hit with both the exciting newcomers and long-standing legends at Metal Hammer magazine’s annual awards. Lifted high by the likes of Slipknot and Saxon and lauded as ‘cute’ by none other than Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliot, our accolade of iconic design is fast becoming an object of desire for some of metal’s finest. Hosted the day after Download’s 10th anniversary festival, there was a special edition to this years ceremony with an award for the Best Download Moment ever!
Awarded to Slipknot for their epic headline set of 2009, frontman Corey Taylor was presented on stage at Download last week by Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas and Download organiser Andy Copping. As you can see from the video below, things got pretty emotional.
