And that Beastlings, is the 2017 Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards show. Remember, support these bands. They make awesome music, and without your support they can’t make that music, they can’t tour, they can’t bring all of us pleasure in watching them. Support your local bands, indie bands, support bands who come through your city, buy their merch and albums. Give them a shot of making it as Golden Gods.
