Revolver Music Awards: Complete List of Winners

  • Axl Rosenberg

The Revolver Annual Excuse for Industry People to Get Together and Drink took place last night here at New York’s Webster Hall.

I’m told they also handed out some awards.

Dave Mustaine took home a Lifetime Achievement Award, while Anthrax took home a Lifetime Achievement Award Revolver Innovator Award. Neither of those honors were awarded by the fans.

The fans did get to vote on all the other categories, though. Below, find the winners in bold, alongside their fellow nominees. Check back soon for our coverage of the show’s red black carpet, including interviews with members of Killswitch Engage, Gojira, Periphery, and more.
