X Japan Awarded Best International Band Award At Golden Gods Awards

X Japan won the Best International Band Award at the annual Revolver/Metal Hammer Golden Gods heavy metal awards ceremony held in LA last night.  X Japan beat out other well known bands such as Lacuna Coil, Rammstein, Meshuggah, Behemoth and Sepultura

Here is Yoshiki's acceptance speech.

Thank you Revolver. Thank you so much for recognizing us,” “Some people might have heard of us, we’re from Japan. Well, our band name is X Japan. We toured North America in 2010, and did our first world tour last year. Now we are finishing our first worldwide debut album. And we are planning on doing another world tour soon. And to our beloved fans: Thank you so much for your support, we are going to keep on rocking. And we fucking love you.”

The 2012 Revolver/Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards will be re-broadcast on Viacom’s VH1 Classic later this year in a smaller version, while the event was streamed live on both Facebook and Xbox Live for Gold members.  X Japan is best known for their opening theme to the X anime and for doing the Saw IV theme.

Good job X Japan!  Much respect!
