This year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods award goes to thrash metal pioneer Dave Mustaine from MEGADETH. This is the first time in history that an award recipient is being named upfront of the night.
Orange Amplification presents the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in association with World Of Warships live at the IndigO2 in London on 15th June 2015.
Speaking about the accolade, Dave Mustaine says: “I am truly humbled to receive this award, and to be recognised by your peers for your accomplishments, is almost as gratifying as not being recognised by the police for your accomplices.”
MEGADETH are one of the pioneers of the American thrash metal scene, the band is credited as one of the genre’s “big four” with ANTHRAX, METALLICA and SLAYER, responsible for thrash metal’s development and popularization. Megadeth plays in a technical style, featuring fast rhythm sections and complex arrangements.
