With the public voting now closed for the Heavy Music Awards 2017, and in the run up to the event on August 24 at House of Vans London, we are revealing the longlists of our categories, as nominated by our judging panel of over 300 industry experts.

For the Best Breakthrough Band category – presented by House of Vans London – we received almost 200 nominations – with the criteria stating that an artist must have released their first official single, EP or album in 2016.

With so many nominations, we have decided to break down the list into three segments. Below you’ll find the second part of the list, covering E through N.

The finalists, as announced in May, are:

Black Peaks (Easy Life)
Black Foxxes (Universal)
Casey (Hassle)
Dead! (Infectious)
I Prevail (Fearless)
Venom Prison (Prosthetic)
Zeal & Ardor (Radicalis / MVKA)

You can listen to tracks from each artist – and discover some new artists while you’re at it – via the embedded playlist at the bottom of this post.
