The Metal Hammer Golden Gods (not the Revolver Golden Gods) have named a winner before the event for the first time ever. Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine will be crowned this year’s “Golden God,” for the June 15th installment of the Metal Hammer Golden Gods at London’s Indigo2 venue.
Said Mustaine in a statement:
“I am truly humbled to receive this award, and to be recognized by your peers for your accomplishments, is almost as gratifying as not being recognized by the police for your accomplices.”
Dave Mustaine follows last year’s Golden God Award winner, Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth. The timing is pretty good, too, as Mustaine recently spoke with Rolling Stone Magazine about the new Megadeth album in the works, slated for release later this year or in early 2016.
