Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2013

Now in its eleventh year, the Golden Gods has become one of the most exclusive parties in metal. Motörhead will be coming from a string of European festivals in front of hundreds of thousand people, to the IndigO2 to play their most intimate show in years.

Motörhead states, “It’s awesome to be headlining our first ever award show. It’s an honour to play some kick ass rock’n’roll at the Golden God Awards.”

The fans have always been at the core of everything with the Golden Gods, and this year in no exception. The awards are reader voted, and every person that votes has a chance to attend the event, which is why a Golden God Gong is so sought after by the bands ‘ they actually mean something.

As if an exclusive set from arguably one of the most important bands in rock music was not enough, Motörhead will be part of a multi-band line-up with other acts to be named imminently. 2013 is already looking set to be the biggest party yet, so voting has never been so important.
