The 2012 Revolver Golden Gods awards will without a doubt be an insane event packed with legendary presenters, stellar live performances and numerous talented nominees. The best part? You get to vote for the winners.

There are 11 categories “Best Guitarist” (presented by Epiphone), “Best Drummer” (presented by Drum Workshop), “Best Vocalist” (presented by Rockstar Energy Drink), “Album of the Year” (presented by Marshall Amplification), “Best Live Band” (presented by Samson/Zoom), “Most Metal Athlete,” “Comeback of the Year” (presented by Eagle Rock Entertainment), “Riff Lord,” “Paul Gray Best Bassist” (presented by Dean Markley), “Best International Band” (presented by Musicians Institute) and “Most Dedicated Fans.”

One award that needs no nominees is the prestigious Golden God award, and this year the special honoree is none other than Gene Simmons of KISS.
