Kerrang!'s deputy editor Daniel J Lane said: "It's been an amazing year for our music and it's really exciting to see such a diverse range of bands nominated for this year's K! Awards.

"I personally love the fact that our very own home-grown heroes Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon and The Blackout are going head-to-head with US heavyweights like My Chemical Romance, 30 Seconds To Mars and Avenged Sevenfold."

The awards ceremony takes place in London on Thursday 9 June. More information, including the full list of nominations, can be found on the Newsbeat website.
