Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2012: Riff Lord, Sponsored By Jackson
Where would we all be without epic riffs? Fucking nowhere, that’s where.
And the winner of this year’s Riff Lord award is…Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel from Machine Head! Yes!
From Davidian to Imperium to Aesthetics Of Hate to Locust, Machine Head have given us countless amazing riffs over the years, and after storming Download last weekend, they’re going to make their first ever UK festival headline appearance at Bloodstock in August! Nice.
