Metal Hammer magazine and the Golden Gods have become institutions of rock and metal music worldwide. They have supported, introduced and awarded some of the most influential bands in the world and voting for the 2012 awards is now open at http://goldengods.metalhammer.co.uk

This year is the tenth anniversary of the awards and Metal Hammer intend to celebrate this in true style, and as always, they want the readers to help make this the biggest Golden Gods yet. By simply registering their vote, each reader has the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the awards.

The Orange Amplification Presents The Metal Hammer Golden Gods In Association With Hobgoblin are once again taking place at the world famous IndigoO2, on Monday 11th June, the day after the Download Festival. The world of rock and metal will be descending on South East London for what has become known as the weekend of rock’s grand finale!2002 was The Golden Gods inception year, the same year as The Monsters Of Rock Festival was resurrected as the Download Festival and Guns ‘n’ Roses played their long awaited comeback tour. In celebration of this landmark, Alexander Milas, Metal Hammer editor, promises to make this a year never to be forgotten…

“The Golden Gods have got bigger, messier and more debauched year after year. It’s an honour to not only give the greatest bands in the world the accolades they deserve, but also allow the greatest fans in the world to get up close and personal with their heroes. With the help of the Metal Hammer readers, I know this is going to be the best Golden Gods yet, and here’s to another ten years.”

The awards are as much about the fans as it is the talent, which is why these prestigious gongs are so sought after. Not only are the awards driven by Metal Hammer readers votes, it is the fans you will find at the front of the stage on the night rubbing shoulders with the talent.

Download Festival will also have a special award in recognition of also reaching that ten ten-year milestone. To cast you vote for your favourite Download moment go to www.downloadfestival.co.uk.
