Joins already announced acts
UPON A BURNING BODY
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.
“Metal Hammer wouldn’t exist without its readers, and so it’s a particular point of pride for us that once a year we get to throw them a party they’ll never forget, and admission is free,” says Alexander Milas, Editor-in-Chief of Metal Hammer & TeamRock. “The HMS Hammer is the only metal party boat of its kind anywhere in the world, and we’re frankly trembling at the thought of this year’s lineup. All aboard!”
Metal Hammer are pleased to announce the final, headline, act for HMS Hammer. That act is the legendary Napalm Death.
“Napalm Death is independent of thought and independent of action,” offers frontman Barney Greenway of Napalm Death’s nomination for Best British Band in this year’s awards. “In some ways, competing against other bands for something nice and shiny undoubtedly gives a certain warm feeling inside, but we promise we won’t be filled with hate if somebody else scoops it. Thanks though for your considerations – you’re just too kind and we’re just (deliberately) too fucking noisy.”
“At Metal Hammer we love to throw a great party – the clue is in the name,” says Alexander Milas, Metal Hammer editor-in-chief. “From the flattening volume of Upon A Burning Body and Code Orange to the riffing might of Butcher Babies, this year’s HMS Hammer is going to fly. Add grindcore legends Napalm Death to the mix and you’ve got a recipe for absolute mayhem. Anchors Aweigh!”

Our host, Anthrax icon Scott Ian, had this to say: “It’s a good thing I just found my Killers T from 1982 because I can wear it while hosting the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards! See you all down there for a night of killer bands, killer booze and killer metal! Hey, there’s a theme developing here…”
