Launched in 2017, the Heavy Music Awards is an entirely independent vehicle to democratically crown the best of the year in heavy music.
Our panel of several hundred respected and knowledgable individuals from across the music industry make their picks for the year, then we collate those picks to create lists of finalists. You, the public, then vote to pick the overall winners. No politics, no input from us – just a genuinely democratic voting system.
Public voting for 2017 is now closed.
