Following Paramore and 30 Seconds to Mars' domination are Bullet for My Valentine and You Me at Six. They grab three gongs, including Best Album and Best Live Band. Voting to determine the winners will commence again soon on Kerrang! official site, while the prize-giving event will take place in London on July 29.
