Hugely popular rock and metal portal The Pit has returned to partner with the Heavy Music Awards for a third consecutive year, supporting the Best International Band category.

The Pit’s Matt Alioto said, “The Pit always looks forward to the Heavy Music Awards; we are excited to be involved in a night of heavy performances and heavier awards.”

HMAs co-founder Dave Bradley said, “The Pit has become a genuine force in the last few years, building a hugely engaged audience around the globe – and the team have always been a pleasure to work alongside. We’re very excited to expand our partnership with The Pit for HMA19 as we go bigger and better on all fronts.”

Best International Band was won in 2018 by Metallica, following victory for Gojira at the inaugural Heavy Music Awards in 2017.
