Heavy Music Awards 2018

PPL is proud to be supporting the HMAs again in 2018.

The Heavy Music Awards were launched in 2017 as a way to democratically recognise the best across a number of disciplines in heavy music. 

The HMAs shine a spotlight on artists, producers, venues, festivals and designers who’s incredible talent deserves the attention of the wider world. To achieve this, a judging panel of several hundred key music industry figures nominates finalists, before the public votes on the winners. 

PPL is proud to have been a supporter of the HMAs since its launch in 2017, sponsoring the inaugural 'Best International Band' category, which was received by the French heavy metal band Gojira.

In 2018 PPL will be presenting the award for 'Best UK Band' at the ceremony in Camden, London, on 23 August 2018. The finalists in this category are:

  • Arcane Roots (Easy Life)
  • Architects (Epitaph Records)
  • Creeper (Roadrunner Records)
  • Enter Shikari (Ambush Reality)
  • Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes (International Death Cult)
  • Marmozets (Roadrunner Records)
  • While She Sleeps (Independent)
