Rising metalcore stars, The Devil Wears Prada, who laid waste to last night’s Revolver Golden Gods Awards when they performed “Assistant to the Regional Manager,” ” Ben Has a Kid,” and “Danger Wildman” for the sold-out metal crowd, will host “Headbangers Ball” this Monday, April 12.  In addition to their hosting duties, the band will treat fans to another viewing of their brand-new music video, “Assistant to the Regional Manager,” that premiered on “Headbangers” April 5.  “Headbangers Ball” airs on MTV2 at 3:00AM ET/PT.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
