Last night at the KOKO in Camden, the red carpet was laid out ready to recieve the metal royalty – it was of course the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards! And we did rather well. Trivium stole the show last night in picking up no less than THREE awards. In addition to winning Best Live Band, Travis picked up the award for Best Drummer, and Matt was given the most prestigious of awards – The Golden God. Satyricon also walked away with the Best Underground Band, and Within Temptation finally picked up their first ever UK award by winning the award for Best Video for ‘Angels‘. And to top it all off, we here at Roadrunner were voted the Best Metal Label for the second year running! So as we wipe away the tears, we just want to thank everyone who voted for us, thanks to everyone who buys the albums, all the bands for making such great music, and thank you to Marta and Brock for going and collecting it for us.
