NEWS: Heavy Music Awards 2020 – The Winners!

After much delay this years Heavy Music Awards finally took place last night and there weren’t many surprises in the winners this time around. It seems strange to have a Best Festival award at the end of a summer where there have been no festivals in the physical sense however it seems logical to award that on the basis of previous years. It is nice to see a the owners of a smaller Metal venue picking up an award in this mix of previously critically acclaimed artists, while we tip or hat to Polaris, who have worked incredibly hard to get where they are today. You can read the full details here.
