Roadrunner Records is extremely pleased to congratulate the artists who are nominated for the second annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards this year!
Rob Zombie, whose Hellbilly Deluxe 2 just debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Chart at #8 last week, is nominated in the “Best Live Band Category.” Zombie will also close out the award show with what will be a “must see” performance.
Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor is nominated in the “Best Vocalist” category. Stone Sour are currently hard at work in Nashville on their third album for Roadrunner, which is being produced by Nick Raskulinecz.
Also, Megadeth garner two nominations. The critically acclaimed latest album ENDGAME is nominated in the “Album of the Year” category. Frontman Dave Mustaine, who was the recipient of the inaugural Golden God Award at last year’s ceremony, is also nominated in the “Best Guitarist” category. Mustaine is also confirmed to present the “Most Metal Athlete” Award at the event.
Winners will be determined by public online voting at www.revolvermag/goldengods. Voting is open until March 30, with winners being announced live at the 2010 Golden Gods Awards Show at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on April 8. The show will be broadcast on VH1 Classic on May 22.
