Listen to Metallica on iHeartRadio

Metallica is up for a couple of Relentless Kerrang! Awards.  The group is in the running for Best International Band, while Metallica Through The Never is up for Best Film at the UK metal magazine's event. 

Some other veteran stars are getting recognition as well.  Iron Maiden is among the group's vying for Best British Band.  KISS bassist Gene Simmons' social media skills have earned him a bid for Tweeter of the Year.  The British group You Me At Six leads the list of nominees, while All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, and Paramore are some of the other multiple nominees. 

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has been tapped to join Andrew W.K. in hosting the ceremony, which will take place at The Troxy in London on June 12th.  Online voting is open until June 5th.
