Hosted by Scott Ian with live performances from…
Killing Joke, At The Gates, Babymetal Feat. Dragon Force, We Are Harlot and Suicidal Tendencies.
Taking place at IndigO2 in London on 15th June 2015, the Orange Amplification presents the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in association with World Of Warships once again has the fans at its core and brings them together with the artists, shoulder to shoulder, like no other event.
“Metal Hammer wouldn’t exist without its readers, and so it’s a particular point of pride for us that once a year we get to throw them a party they’ll never forget, and admission is free,” says Alexander Milas, Editor-in-Chief of Metal Hammer & TeamRock. “The HMS Hammer is the only metal party boat of its kind anywhere in the world, and we’re frankly trembling at the thought of this year’s lineup. All aboard!”
HMS HAMMER 2015 LINE UP
UPON A BURNING BODY
Mixing slamming metal grooves with huge hooks and choruses that could fill an arena, Upon A Burning Body remain one of the most promising young bands in the game today, and if their most recent live shows on these shores are anything to go by, they should go down a storm on HMS Hammer.
The Artists Formerly Known As Code Orange Kids underlined their potential to unite hardcore punks and iron-blooded metal heads by supporting the mighty At The Gates last year, and with riffs heavy enough to make any metal fan’s stomach rumble, they look set for great things indeed. Mark this intimate set as the start of something special for them.
Fronted by two of the most fearless young front women in metal today, Butcher Babies’ modern metal smackdown has seen them win over new fans in droves, and after a Spring spent supporting In This Moment, bank on them having honed their live show into something very special indeed.
Our host, Anthrax icon Scott Ian, had this to say: “It’s a good thing I just found my Killers T from 1982 because I can wear it while hosting the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards! See you all down there for a night of killer bands, killer booze and killer metal! Hey, there’s a theme developing here…”
