Kawasaki Golden God Award: Dimebag Darrell “Shredder” Award
In honour of the late great Dimebag Darrell, his brother and drummer of Hellyeah and Pantera, Vinnie Paul, is here to hand out the Dimebag Darrell Shredder award.
The nominees are:
- Zoltan Bathory/Five Finger Death Punch
- Satchel/Steel Panther
- Jeff Kendrick/DevilDriver
- Dino Cazares/Fear Factory
- Pepper Keenan/CoC + Down
And the winner is…
After showing riffs of steel and solos that any of his heroes would be proud of, Zoltan Bathory of 5FDP has laid claim to being one of the finest riffsters of his generation. Including a show-stopping set at Download, a sold out UK tour and their face-melting set here tonight, there’s nothing holding back the Death Punch sound.
