The Grammy Museum at L.A. Live, in cooperation with Revolver magazine, will debut “Golden Gods: The History Of Heavy Metal” on April 11, 2012 to coincide with Revolver‘s popular awards show, Revolver Golden Gods. Through rare artifacts from iconic metal bands and interactive experiences, the exhibit will teach visitors about the origins of heavy metal, its many subgenres, the bands that made heavy metal famous and offer a look into the controversy that has surrounded the genre for the past four decades.
The exhibit will feature never-before-displayed artifacts to give visitors a full overview of the vast history, and future, of heavy metal, including:
* Stage props
* Handwritten lyrics
* Original album artwork
* Live performance footage and interviews
In keeping with the mission of The Grammy Museum, the exhibit will also house a variety of interactive exhibits, meant to teach visitors about the elements of heavy metal music including a vocal “scream” booth, double kick drum interactive featuring a tutorial on heavy metal drumming and metal riff stations, highlighting the great guitar players of the genre.
“Golden Gods: The History Of Heavy Metal” will be on display in The Grammy Museum‘s Special Exhibits Gallery through February 2013.
