We're proud to announce the 2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards!
A riff-roaring, loud, and unholy metallic takeover of New York City is on the horizon, as Revolver Magazine and Epiphone are pleased to announce the return of their jointly-presented, annual hard rock awards show.
Now known as "The Epiphone Revolver Music Awards," the event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, December 13 at Webster Hall in New York City. The RMAs will be livestreamed by Twitch.TV and hosted by metal legend and Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine alongside SiriusXM's Jose Mangin.
As the primary print and digital destination for the latest and loudest from established and legendary hard rock and metal acts, as well as the first place fans look to to discover emerging talent, the Revolver name carries incredible weight. Therefore, it made perfect sense for the show to now be rebranded as the "Epiphone Revolver Music Awards."
The show's move to NYC this year is also a logical relocation, since Manhattan is also where the magazine is headquartered. The city was also selected as it is widely regarded as a hard rock mecca, thanks to its contributions to revolutionizing rock music through the years. NYC is home to legendary artists who helped pave the way for aggressive music, such as The Ramones, KISS, New York Dolls, Twisted Sister, White Zombie, and Anthrax, among countless others.
This year's show will feature the same top-tier talent the production has long been known for. The aforementioned Megadeth will serve as the headliners, while additional performers include Zakk Wylde, Lacuna Coil and Stitched Up Heart. A Fallen Heroes All-Star Jam, featuring Ace Frehley, Bumblefoot, Pop Evil, Butcher Babies, and more is also scheduled. More performers will be announced soon.
As is customary, attendees and viewers can expect plenty of surprises, both unplanned and otherwise, to unfold throughout the course of the show.
Tickets can be purchased right NOW here.
The Epiphone Revolver Music Awards isn't solely about the performances, though. It's here we are (and will be) honored to recognize your favorite artists for their accomplishments that make this music and scene so vital and viable. View the nominees HERE.
And remember to VOTE for the artists you want recognized at the show. Voting takes place now—and yes, you can vote as much as you want.
Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor will release his fourth book on July 11, 2017 via Da Capo Press. Entitled 'America 51: A Probe Into The Realities That Are Hiding Inside The Greatest Country In The World,' the book will address political turmoil in America as well as social commentary.
The publisher's description of the book is as follows:
"The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins 'America 51' with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multiplatinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America's origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn), while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American.
"Balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to family and 'man buns.' By continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in 'You're Making Me Hate You', Taylor skewers contemporary America in his own signature style."

The Dillinger Escape Plan are no strangers to making headlines with their antics, however, this might be a first for the band. During a live set, frontman Greg Puciato climbed a balcony during the band's performance of "Sunshine the Werewolf." Upon spotting a fan's burger at the top of the balcony, the singer exclaimed: "You guys have f–king food up here?" Pucaito then helped himself to a bite and tossed the remaining burger into the crowd.
Watch the clip below. Would you share your burger with Greg Puciato?
Halloween is arguably the most metal holiday, so it's no surprise that rockers and metalheads go all out with their costumes. Dedicated to gore, goblins, and ghouls, All Hallow's Eve's traditions parallel some if the themes found in metal music. This year, we saw rockers deck themselves out in everything from Donkey Kong to zombies. Check out our gallery of rockers in costume and let us know which ones you like best!
Death metal legends Cannibal Corpse have recorded a brutal version of the theme song to Adult Swim's animated series, 'Squidbillies.' The episode that the song appears on, entitled "Squash B'Gosh," can be seen at AdultSwim.com.
"The producers of 'Squidbillies' hit us up a few weeks ago and asked us to record the theme song for their Halloween episode that aired last weekend," explained the band.

Every Time I Die got into the Halloween spirit during their performance at Irving Plaza in New York City. The band took the stage dressed as the rock outfit Embarking To Infinity's Door and told the crowd that Every Time I Die were running late and that the faux-band would be performing in their place. Every Time I Die then proceeded to perform their entire set as Embarking To Infinity's Door imposters.
"Sad we couldn't play, extra sad we missed Embarking To Infinity's Door! We've heard nothing but great things," said a post on the band's official Instagram account.
Watch video footage of the band's performance below.
