Revolver Golden Gods Awards 2013 Winners & Runners Up

Golden Gods Logo

Last night saw the return of the 5th Annual Revolver Golden Gods awards show presented by Epiphone and Xbox Live from Los Angeles, California. It was a night that was slightly harrowing due to the death of Jeff Hanneman, guitarist and co-founder of Slayer. But the many gods of rock wouldn’t let that get them down, many of them paying tribute with noise and ‘rebel yells’ to the great guitarist.

The night was a success. Hosted by WWE Superstar and lead singer of Fozzy, the ayatollah of rock and rolla, Chris Jericho. Including performances from bands such as Anthrax, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Deftones, Halestorm, Stone Sour, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Danzig, and Metallica.

If you’d rather watch the entire event for yourself than see the winners, then head on over to the music tab on the Xbox Live Dashboard and watch it on demand.
