Revolver Magazine announced the 6th annual award show will happen on Wednesday, April 23rd at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA and will be headlined by Guns N Roses. Axl Rose will also be the recipient of the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award.

Voting is now open on the official Golden Gods website.

Interestingly enough, no television partner was announced for the event yet. As of this moment, the only way to watch this year's Golden Gods will be to attend the event in person. This will be the first year that the show isn't produced by Josh Bernstein, a longtime Revolver producer who left the company last year, so it will be interesting too see how the format changes without Josh, who I know was vital to the show's success in the first five years.
