The night after Download Festival 2004, the 2nd annual Metal Hammer Golden God Awards was held, at the Hackney Ocean in London (Monday, June 7th). drummroll, please... We are pleased to announce that Killswitch Engage took home the Golden God for Album Of The Year with The End Of Heartache. Quite the honor (actually, shall we say 'honour' considering this is a UK special?). The band also performed a 3-song set at the awards ceremony that evening - 'Fixation Of The Darkness', 'Rose Of Sharyn', and 'My Last Serenade'. Congratulations to the band, and many thanks to all of you out there who voted. The band celebrated at the awards afterparty at the nearby Hackney Central, rubbing shoulders with the likes of fellow winners Slayer, Dimebag Darrell, Funeral For A Friend, In Flames, HIM, and so on as well as Soil, Machine Head, Ill Nino, Hatebreed, God Forbid, Iron Maiden, The Brides Of Destruction, Shadows Fall, and more.
