Today (April 11, 2012), the GRAMMY Museum® in cooperation with Revolver Magazine, will debut a major NEW exhibition, Golden Gods: The History of Heavy Metal.  Through rare artifacts from iconic Metal bands and interactive experiences, the exhibit will teach visitors about the origins of Heavy Metal, its many sub-genres, the bands that made Heavy Metal famous and offer a look into the controversy that has surrounded the genre for the past four decades.

Launching on the same day as the REVOLVER Golden Gods Award Show taking place next door at Club Nokia at L.A. LIVE, this will be the first major museum exhibition to explore Heavy Metal in America, and the genre’s impact across the globe.  Visitors will enjoy a wide-array of items, including:

\m/ Handwritten lyrics and sketches from Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister;
\m/ Several wardrobe pieces, from acts like Black Sabbath and Gwar;
\m/ Stage props from bands such as Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Slayer and more;
\m/ An interactive “scream booth,” designed to introduce Metal vocal technique;
\m/  Several famous guitars including Chuck Schuldiner’s (DEATH) B.C. Rich Stealth;
