Artist News Awards

Kerrang! Awards presented

By | Published on Friday 12 June 2015


It being the Download Festival this weekend, there’s the customary accompanying rawk events in London this week and next, with the rather fine first edition of the RockComm conference at Rich Mix earlier this week, while, as always, both Kerrang! and Metal Hammer are in gong-dishing-out mode.

The latter’s Golden Gods are next week, while the Relentless Kerrang! Awards were last night and, while this long list of winners does look pretty relentless, don’t worry, they don’t actually hand out every prize on the night.

And at least everyone was nice and dry for these proceedings. As in they weren’t damp. Not that they weren’t boozing (this was the Kerrang! Awards after all). Whereas – given this weekend’s forecast – when the rock fraternity regroup post-Download for the Golden Gods, I’d expect a bit more overall dampness.

Anyway, here are a bunch of winners…
