Music fans often lament when their favourite rockers – especially the hard rockers and metal heads – fail to make the cut for the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But that doesn’t mean they won’t be inducted into a Hall of Fame.

The Metal Hall of Fame has announced the latest inductees into the Hall of Fame.

Hard rock and metal band concert promoter Jack Orbin, the independent concert promotions firm (founded by Orbin) Stone City Attractions, KISS, Dokken founded Don Dokken, Ratt founder and lead singer Stephen Pearcy, Geoff Tate, Graham Bonnett, Chris Poland, Metal Church, and Joe Satriani will all be inducted into the Metal Hall of Fame in a ceremony January 15 in Anaheim, California. Three time Grammy Award winning guitar virtuoso Steve Vai will also be in attendance for the Hall of Fame inductions.

Along with some of the inductees and an All-Star Jam, the Los Angeles metal band Heaven Below will be performing at the gala.

Television and radio personality Eddie Trunk and Whiskey A GOGO Ultimate Jam Night and Almost Fama Show host Jes Fama will share the hosting duties for the gala event.

A non-profit organization, the Metal Hall of Fame is dedicated to enshrining musicians and executives who make metal music what it is today and inspire metal fans around the world.
