British band The Darkness are set to cement their position in the big time at tonight's prestigious Kerrang! AWARDS.

The much-hyped rock band are nominated in three categories at tonight's (21AUG03) London ceremony, the heavy metal equivalent of the GRAMMYS.

The Darkness, fronted by the flamboyant Justin Hawkins, are up for Best British Newcomer, Best Album and Best Live Act.

Metallica, the Foo Fighters, Evanescence, Linkin Park and the Murderdolls are among other bands nominated for Kerrang! gongs.
