Avenged Sevenfold–vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman–became one of the world’s biggest rock bands by creating a sound that broke through obstacles of language, distance and culture. They raised the stakes and standards for the genre with a string of blockbuster albums, including their 2005 platinum-selling breakthrough, City Of Evil, 2007’s platinum-selling Avenged Sevenfold and two consecutive No. 1’s on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart: 2010’s Nightmare and 2013’s Hail To The King.

From M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold:

“We are excited to celebrate a night of heavy metal with all of our friends. We hope to see everyone there”

Also added to the bill will be a special live performance by IN THIS MOMENT. Known worldwide for their dramatic live performances, In This Moment– Maria Brink (Vocals), Chris Howorth (Guitar), Travis Johnson (Bass), Randy Weitzel (Guitar) Kent Diimmel (Drums)–have received rapturous praise in a range of national outlets.

The group released their new album RITUAL this summer via Atlantic Records in partnership with Roadrunner Records. Produced by longtime collaborator Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne), with RITUAL, In This Moment pushing their inimitably dark sound forward with a provocative sense of pervading doom and metallic blues power. Highlights include a dramatic reimagination of the Phil Collins classic “In The Air Tonight” as well as “Black Wedding,” of which Brink shares the mic with legendary Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.

“We are very excited to be a part of the Loudwire Music Awards this year,” adds Maria Brink of In This Moment. “We have a big surprise in store for everyone watching! Get ready for the Black Wedding!”
