The winners of the  2022 Heavy Music Awards winners have officially been announced.

The UK-based awards serve to shine a spotlight on the rock and metal scene and this year's nominees were revealed in March by a panel of 700 industry insiders before the winners were decided by a public vote.

Across the 11 different categories, four bands led in the total nominations department including Architects, Don Broco, Trivium, and Spiritbox ,all with four nominations each. Other industry heavyweights were nominated including Bring Me The Horizon, A Day to Remember, and Gojira along with newer acts such as Turnstile and Code Orange.

With so many bands and so many categories, Architects were the big winners taking home two awards including Best Album for their LP For Those Who Wish To Exist as well as Best UK Artist, knocking off Bring Me The Horizon who had won the award the last three years in a row.

International artists won big as well, with Electric Callboy becoming just the second German band to win a Heavy Music Award since Rammstein in 2020. The group took home Best Video for their song "Pump It."
