The nominees also feature some of the most exciting new talent shortlisted in the two Breakthrough categories.
Dream State - who delivered a stellar performance at Slam Dunk Festival this past weekend - are up against Employed To Serve, Conjurer, Boston Manor and Venom Prison for Best British Breakthrough, whilst Code Orange, Greta Van Fleet, Turnstile, The Fever 333 and Waterparks received nods for International Breakthrough.
Kerrang! Magazine Editor Sam Coare commented:
''The two categories that recognise emerging artists are packed full of remarkable talent. They reflect a new wave of rock music that is exciting, real and vital. It's not a 'scene' per se, because these acts are all very different from each other and set their own agendas, but they are all a reaction to the disposable nature of mainstream music right now.
''As Kerrang! enters its 38th year at the heart of the rock scene, the 2018 Awards shortlist is indicative of both rock's illustrious heritage and thrilling future.''
The winners will be announced at the ceremony on June 21 at London's Islington Town Hall, where the Kerrang! Legend Award winner will be unveiled , among other merit honours.
