The show - as far removed from those stiff black tie events as you can get - features live bands as well as the Awards. Invited bands, VIPs and of course Metal Hammer readers will all be attending and this year those masters of Gothic majesty HIM are confirmed to headline.
Last year, the very first Golden Gods, attracted the likes of Marilyn Manson (absinthe anyone?), The Darkness (who picked up their very first award), Funeral For A Friend, Lemmy, Amen, Gary Numan, John Paul Jones, HIM, Inme, Cradle of Filth to name a few. Fun and games were had by all with kickass live appearances, strange people in strange outfits and some very bad behaviour. oh, and Entertainment Arts kindly provided game pods for sideline entertainment.
