The Kerrang! Awards are set to take place this week in London. As well as the voted for categories, the awards ceremony will also see Kerrang! bestow a number of merit awards recognising career-long achievements. This will include the latest inductee into the Kerrang! Hall Of Fame (sponsored by Marshall) and the Kerrang! Legend Award. Some of this year’s nominees include Foo Fighters, Metallica, Marilyn Manson, Biffy Clyro, Marmozets plus more.

Kerrang! Magazine Editor Sam Coare said: “The two categories that recognise emerging artists are packed full of remarkable talent. They reflect a new wave of rock music that is exciting, real and vital. It’s not a ‘scene’ per se, because these acts are all very different from each other and set their own agendas, but they are all a reaction to the disposable nature of mainstream music right now.

As Kerrang! enters its 38th year at the heart of the rock scene, the 2018 Awards shortlist is indicative of both rock’s illustrious heritage and thrilling future.”
