Back In Black: How the Golden Gods awards came roaring back to life

Last December, we thought Metal Hammer might be gone for good. Now we’re back stronger than ever, with the biggest party heavy music has ever seen. Welcome to the 15th annual Golden Gods...

When Metal Hammer’s parent company collapsed six months ago, we didn’t know if the magazine would ever see the light of day again. This bleak time was made infinitely better by the huge outpouring of love and support from our scene, including a surprise staff crowdfunding campaign set up by Orange Goblin frontman Ben Ward and his partner Sandie Soriano. So when Hammer found a new home at Future Publishing, we set about putting together the best Golden Gods awards show in heavy metal history. You want riffs, legends, and the goddamn biggest party of the year? Then step this way! We’re back…. and it’s going to be loud.
