In the 11 different categories, four groups topped the total nominations department, including Architects, Don Broco, Trivium and Spiritbox, all with four nominations each. Other industry heavyweights have been nominated including Bring Me The Horizon, A Day to Remember and Gojira, as well as newer artists such as Turnstile and Code Orange.

With so many bands and categories, the Architects were the big winners taking home two awards, including Best Album for their LP. For those who want to exist as well as Best British Artist, knocking out Bring Me The Horizon which had won the award for the past three consecutive years.

International artists also won big, with Electric Callboy becoming the second German band to win a Heavy Music Award since Rammstein in 2020. The group won best video for their song “Pump It”.
