Orange Amplification is reinforcing its hard rock credentials as it sponsors, for the third consecutive year, the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards presented in association with World Of Tanks. This prestigious event, hosted by Steel Panther, takes place at the London Indigo2, Greenwich on the 16th June 2014, preceded by the pre-show boat party on HMS Hammer presented by Vans.
The Metal Hammer Gold God Awards are some of the most coveted metal music awards in the world. They’re always accompanied by an exclusive, explosive party, which features intimate live music performances from the most sought after bands in the business. Orange Amplification has a long history of being the amp of choice for metal guitarists and bassists and their credentials were further reinforced recently with the launch of the very metal Dual Dark amplifier whose earth shaking tonal depth would make the heart of any metal head melt!
Satch, Michael, Lexxi and Stix of Steel Panther, renowned for their ability for absurd mimicry of the 1980’s metal are hosting the event. Expect spandex, mad jokes and superb craftsmanship in their performance! The Dillinger Escape Plan are looking forward to wrecking havoc on HMS Hammer, as are Texan hell raisers Upon A Burning Body, Rex Brown’s Kill Devil Hill and death metal heroes Dying Fetus. Names for the main event will be announced in the coming weeks.
