Previous hosts have included Alice Cooper (2011), Chris Jericho (2012) and Devin Townsend (2013).

There's also HMS Hammer, hosted by Vans (opens in new tab) , a pre-show party boat. It's one of the smallest live music venues in London; full of VIPs and competition winners who've cast their votes, the boat will host intimate performances from some of the most exciting bands coming out of America: mathcore trailblazers The Dillinger Escape Plan, Pantera/Pissing Razors supergroup Kill Devil Hill, death metal innovators Dying Fetus, and deathcore groove metallers Upon A Burning Body.

Metal Hammer is the heavy metal bible, now in its 28th year of publication, and its coverage of the world of metal – from the cutting edge to the extreme – is unparalleled. Alexander Milas, Metal Hammer editor-in-chief, says, “The Metal Hammer Golden Gods have built an iron-clad reputation as the most outrageous awards show of the year, so who better to host than the mighty ’Panther? But this is more than just a party – it's a celebration of the great and good of our musical community, both new and old, and it's a thank-you to the readers who've supported us for nearly 30 years and with whom we can't wait to throw the horns."

Voting is open now and you have until Friday 23 May at .
