^ Classic example of Metal brotherhood, with Benji Webbe (Skindred) being mobbed by Londoners The Defiled and in the back Andrew O'Neill (comedian) asking If we can hear him.
This is when we got to the nitty-gritty of the awards being given out to the winners, the competition was tough, nominations were tighter than Cheryl Cole's arse in leather trousers. But waiting patiently, the announcements came out.

< Watain could not wait to rub the skull of one of their golden victims.
Swedish Black Metal quartet Watain won the 'Best Underground Band' Golden God award from which the following were also nominated: Ancient Wisdom, Shining, In Solitude and Black Breath. Unfortunately Global Metal Apocalypse could not get a quote from the band on their achievement but we are adament that the lads are extremely pleased, if only they can now let England win tonight.
< The Defiled made light work of showing how to climb onto the top of an amp.
London Groove/Thrash Metallers The Defiled won the 'Best New Band' Golden God Award from which the following were also nominated: Animals As Leaders, Primal Rock Rebellion, Kobra & The Lotus and Heights. Two interviews were conducted, one before the award was given and one after the award was given (in order) and so below are the two interviews, check them out and expect The Defiled to get more and more prolific.
< Devin Townsend, Canadian legend, stared at the person asking him if he should be a poltician.
The other nominations for the award were:
Canadian guitarist legend Devin Townsend won the 'Dimebag Darrell Shredder' Golden God award and was very surprised to actually win it, the mastermind behing the sensational Strapping Young Lad and his now much-loved project The Devin Townsend Project came away victorious.
We have an exclusive video interview with the legend himself below.
< Saxon performing the salute of the South Yorkshire regiment
Someone compard Saxon getting the 'Best UK Band' Golden God Award to receiving the OBE, but we disagree because the two awards are two classes apart, let alone different fields. However for Barnsley quintet Saxon this was a moment coming true, a remarkable moment in the band's 36 year existence, they truly remain and will always be regarded as one of the major heavyweights alongside legends Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath, next stop: rock and roll hall of fame.
You can catch their thoughts below, part 5 coming soon.
