Revolver Magazine presented the 5th annual Golden Gods Awards Thursday (May 2). The show is essentially the heavy metal Grammys, presenting awards for various categories in the hard rock genre.

Hosted by WWE wrestler, rock singer and host of "Robot Combat League" Chris Jericho, the show was loaded with tributes to Jeff Hanneman. A founding member of metal band Slayer, it was announced shortly before the show that Hanneman had died. Fellow Slayer member Kerry King led the audience in a "moment of noise" as a tribute to Hannemen, because a moment of silence just would not do.

The full list of winners from the show is below:

Best Guitarist:John 5 (Rob Zombie)

Best Drummer:Arejay Hale (Halestorm)

Best Bassist:Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead)
