Revolver Golden Gods -- Los Angeles, CA -- April 7th, 2009

Hey! I just got back from the show, it was awesome!! Brian Posehn hosted, and was hilarious! At around 5 o'clock, I arrived at Club Nokia, and was lucky enough to see Andrew (andrew_metalhead) from this site and he let me and my friends come in line with him. He was second in line! Now we're even, as I helped him out with a similar thing on Friday when we saw Lamb of God.

Lets get on to the show!

Killswitch Engage was the first band up. I didn't know what to expect from them. I have heard mixed reviews about their live performances. I was blown away. Adam D. was hilarious and it was just a fun set to participate in!

The setlist went as follows:
1. My Curse
2. (New Song)
3. Holy Diver

I hope to catch them on Mayhem Festival in the Summer!

Suicide Silence took the stage next. I didn't like them, and their performance confirmed my disinterest. It was like listening to one long breakdown. I will give them props for having energy. I've never seen whirlwind headbanging as they provide. I was pissed because there was a lot of hxc dancers in the pit.

I do not know their setlist.

Hatebreed took their sweet ass time to hit the stage. The pits were brutal, and they were everything I imagined them to be. Hatebreed continues to be one of my favorite hardcore band, and Jamey Jasta is a great role model.

I don't know the names of many of their songs but I think it went something like this:
1. Live For This
2. Destroy Everything
3. As Diehard as they Come
4. I Will Be Heard

All That Remains was the one band I had really high hopes for. They exceeded in entertaining me and provided the best mosh pit I've had the pleasure of taking part in. Phil Labonte had so much fucking energy. I love All That Remains, and would also love to see them on Mayhem Festival in the Summer

Their setlist was this:
1. Two Weeks
2. Chiron
3. This Calling

Megadeth was great. I feel bad because I can't name their complete setlist, a total of, 3 songs. I really wanna look into them and learn more of their songs. I believe Andrew got one of their setlists after, so he can definetely post it. My one complaint is that they didn't play my favorite Megadeth song Devil's Island.

Incomplete Setlist:
1. Peace Sells...Use Fire
2. (no clue)
3. Holy Wars

Let me end of saying that there was about a 10 minute intro for Ozzy and he literally came out and mumbled some words for approximately 15 seconds. Still gotta love his music.

Overall, this was a great night. I'm really glad I experienced these bands and got to participate in America's first metal awards show!!

I waited five hours in line for this. Got the rail spot! Megadeth were fuckin amazing!! Head-banged like crazy and made direct eye contact with Chris!!!!

Seeing Ozzy, Slayer, Chuck Billy, Scott Ian, Vinne Paul and Lemmy from up close was also fuckin awesome! I shouted my ass off to greet all these heroes. Dave Mustaine got 'Golden God' award and Ozzy got the lifetime acheivement. I didn't give a shit about any of the other awards as they were fuckin lame as shit. Voted by kids and stupid Magazine emplyees and shit like that I'm sure.
Didn't care for the four opening bands. I was there to see Megadeth and Ozzy and loved every minute of them!! Got 2 free t shirts and a guitar pick before the show which they were giving out to the first few people in line. The Golden Gods shirt is kickass \m/ Don't care much for the hatebreed shirt so gave it to a friend.
Megadeth haven't announced any US dates yet and I'm wondering whats up with that! Oh well at least I saw them at this show although for a very short set. Still worth it for me!!! Who knows may be I need to save up some money and go to Canada to see them, as Dave has said in his most recent blog that they will do four shows with Testament in Canada and there was no mention of US.

Oh here's the winners list by the way .. as I said I cared only for 2 of these awards so don't diss me lol

* Most Awesomely Good Drummer: Vinnie Paul Abbott (HELLYEAH, PANTERA)
* Best Underground Metal Band: ISIS
* Metal Industry Award: Rainbow Bar & Grill
* Best Album: METALLICA
* Honorary Headbanger: Kat Von D
* Golden God: Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH)
* Best Riff: SLIPKNOT
* Most Viral Video: PROTEST THE HERO
* Most Metal Athlete: Shaun White
* Best Live Band: SLIPKNOT
* Best New Talent: SUICIDE SILENCE
* Lifetime Achievement: Ozzy Osbourne
* Best International Band: DETHKLOK
* MySpace Readers' Choice Award: THE ACACIA STRAIN
* Most Mind-Blowing Guitarist: Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King (SLAYER)
* Hottest Chick In Metal: Marta Peterson (BLEEDING THROUGH)

And oh by the way Megadeth's 1st song was Peace Sells..who's Buying (not 'Use Fire' ) and 2nd song was Sweating Bullets.

It's only gone downhill since giving Baroness the 2007 album of the year honors.

I heard that after this touring cycle is over, lamb of god will be taking a break from music to cure cancer, aids, and world hunger.
