Now in its fourth year, Revolver magazine's Golden God Awards have quickly become the Grammys for hard rock and heavy metal bands. And this year's awards ceremony plans to be the biggest to date, featuring live performances from Slash, Evanescence, Korn and Marilyn Manson in his first American performance in nearly three years. "The 2012 edition is without question the most epic one yet, from the performers and presenters to the nominees and honorees,” stated Revolver's Editor-in-Chief, Brandon Geist. And as an added bonus, Geist also noted that this year's event will be broadcast live on Xbox LIVE. So turn off Call of Duty for a change—your thumbs will thank you for it. The all ages event will be hosted by WWE superstar Chris Jericho, and will take place on Wednesday, April 11th at Club Nokia at L.A. Live.
