Metallica, You Me At Six and Paramore are just some of the nominees for this year's Kerrang! Awards.

Surrey rockers You Me At Six are up for five gongs for Best Single, Best Album, Best British Band, Best Live Band and Hottest Male, for guitarist Max Helyer, after their album 'Cavalier Youth' hit the number one spot.

Metallica, who are rumoured to be headlining this year's Glastonbury Festival, have been nominated for Best International Band and Best Film for 'Through The Never', while Paramore are up for Best Live Band and Best Event for Parahoy!

The acts join Fall Out Boy, 30 Seconds To Mars, Green Day and 5 Seconds of Summer in a number of categories.

Kerrang! Editor James McMahon said: "This is the third Relentless Kerrang! Awards I've presided over now, and I don't think I've been quite this excited before.

"There are bands nominated I love, legends lined up that I respect, and the party itself will contain some unforgettable surprises.

"It's a testament to the strength and size of the rock scene right now that bands as diverse as 5 Seconds Of Summer and Behemoth, and Baby Godzilla and You Me At Six can galvanise a community to vote in their thousands."

He added: "Respect to Kerrang! readers for remaining the most loyal, passionate, cool-ass music fans on the planet. We hope our 2014 party does you justice."

The event takes place on Thursday, June 12 at London's Troxy.
