The “Best Guitarist” award has been renamed after Dimebag Darrell, the late, great Pantera guitarist.

“I am very honored that Revolver is renaming the Best Guitarist Award after Dime! He was and always will be what heavy-metal guitar playing is all about,” said Vinnie Paul, brother of Dimebag and his bandmate in Pantera and Damageplan. “This award is given to the person with those special skills that sets them apart from others. Dime always went for it and I know he would be proud of the winner of this award. So go for it and may the best shredder win!”

Voting for all categories is open now at GoldenGods2014.com and ends on April 4, 2014.

In addition to Epiphone®, sponsors of the 2014 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS include Eagle Rock Entertainment, Fearless Records, Randall Amplifiers, Razor & Tie, Roadrunner Records and Victory Records.
