The Golden God Award will be presented to the legendary Dave Mustaine.

Taking place at IndigO2 in London on 15th June 2015, the Orange Amplification presents the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in association with World Of Warships once again has the fans at its core and brings them together with the artists, shoulder to shoulder, like no other event.

Dave Mustaine is best known as the frontman and creative force behind Megadeth, the band who in June 2015 celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the release of their seminal album ‘Killing Is My Business..And Business Is Good!’ (originally released on the 12th June 1985).

Formed in 1983, Megadeth are one of the true pioneers and innovators of metal music. The band have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including 11 Grammy® nominations and scoring five consecutive platinum albums-including 1992’s two-million-selling ‘Countdown to Extinction’.

Megadeth’s founder, leader and primal guitar-slinger and lyricist Dave Mustaine is still a key creative force in the metal world. The band released their 14th studio album, ‘Super Collider, in 2013 through Mustaine’s own Tradecraft label. Megadeth have just finished recording a new studio album ‘ due for release later in 2015.

“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
