Some days ago I wrote about X JAPAN Becoming First Asian Band Nominated for Golden Gods Award.
The winners were announced yesterday, and X fans can rejoice: the band won the Award for Best International Artist!
The other nominees in the Best International Artist category were Rammstein (Germany), Lacuna Coil (Italy), Sepultura (Brazil), Behemoth (Poland) and Meshuggah (Sweden). Winners in different categories were Avenged Sevenfold, Slash, Korn and Evanescence, amongst others.
In his acceptance speech, Yoshiki thanked the people from Revolver for the acknowledgement. He talked about their 2010 North American tour and their world tour in 2011, before revealing they have currently the final stages of their worldwide debut album. They are also planning their second world tour. Yoshiki finished by thanking the fans for their support and promised they will continue to rock from now on.
