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.

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.

Sneak Peeks at Tonight’s New Face Off and Robot Combat League

  • ScifiMafia
Yes, admittedly it isn’t necessarily an obvious pairing, Face Off and Robot Combat League. Let’s look at what they have in common. Both on Syfy, Tuesday nights, one after the other, and both are competition shows. Face Off is one of Syfy‘s highest rated shows, and Rcl is just getting started.

If you’re a fan of one, though, I recommend you give the other a try. Face Off showcases the creation of some excellent special effects makeup. It’s a competition show with competitors that try to do their best work, as opposed to strategizing against the other contestants. Robot Combat League, on the other hand, is… well it’s fun. Come on, it’s fighting eight-feet-tall robots! And if you saw last week’s series premiere, you’ll want to know that it looks like the rest of the episodes will feature two battles per episode,

Syfy’s ‘Robot Combat League’ Debut Hits Two-Year High For Network

  • Deadline TV
Robot Combat League came out swinging last night for Syfy. The 10 Pm premiere of the mechanically inclined competition series Wednesday pulled in 1.3 million viewers for the network. While not as high as the 1.7 million the make-up artist series Face-Off averaged on Syfy in its most recent season, that’s a steel solid number for an unscripted show on the network. The tournament-style robot battle show’s 748,000 viewers Wednesday in the Adult 18-49 demo scored even better. That result for the Chris Jericho hosted series is a more than two-year unscripted premiere high for NBCUniversal owned network. The Face-Off premiere on January 26, 2011 got 896,000 in the demo. Last night’s Robot Combat League also garnered 200,000 views pre-premiere on multiple platforms including Syfy.com, VOD, Xbox 360, Roku and Hulu. Robot Combat League is produced by Smart Dog Media.

'Robot Combat League': Chris Jericho hosts real-life 'Real Steel'

At least since 1927's "Metropolis," and continuing into the modern era with "Transformers" and this summer's anticipated blockbuster "Pacific Rim," robots have been a fixture in movies and television. Some of the mechanized creations have become popular characters in their own right, from Robby the Robot of "Forbidden Planet" and the nameless robot in TV's "Lost in Space" to those lovable droids R2-D2 and C-3Po in "Star Wars," to name just a few.

A burgeoning TV and movie genre over the years has pitted robots in battle against one another, and for a while, the "battling robots" TV trend was popular, most notably in the Comedy Central series "BattleBots." But that series featured robots created by home inventors doing battle. "Robot Combat League," premiering Tuesday, Feb. 26, on Syfy, ups the ante, combining elements of "BattleBots" with cinematic robotics.

Robot boxing isn’t just for your little Rock’em Sock’em game anymore. In the new Syfy series Robot Combat League, metal giants dole out powerful punches on other robots. Much like in the Hugh Jackman-starring Real Steel, competitors shadowbox in an exo-suit that translates every uppercut and right hook to their mechanical avatars.

The show began with an idea from producers Jeremy Whitham and Craig Plestis. They gave the duties of creating the show’s robots to Mark Setrakian, whose credits include the animatronic effects in Hellboy, Men in Black, and Batman Forever. He was also a
