Held on April 11th, 2012, in L.A. and hosted by pro wrestling star (and metal diehard) Chris Jericho, the fourth installment of the Revolver Golden Gods awards show was a weird and wild time. Evanescence, Slash, Black Veil Brides and more performed, Tenacious D presented the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award to Rush, Yngwie J. Malmsteen played the national fucking anthem — but the highlight of the night might have been during Trivium's set, when the Florida metal veterans brought out a pair of very special guests for an all-star jam.
The guests? The frontmen of two of Trivium singer Matt Heafy's favorite bands: Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor and Machine Head bandleader Robb Flynn. The song? Metallica's "Creeping Death." Needless to say, the results were explosive, with all the aforementioned players clearly having the time of their lives jamming together and paying tribute to metal's biggest band by covering what is arguably their greatest song. Flashback to the momentous performance above.
