Subscribe to Loudwire on

The 5th Annual Loudwire Music Awards are in the books! Thanks to everyone who voted over the last few weeks to determine the best in hard rock and metal in 2015. Below is a complete list of the winners from all 17 categories.

BabyMetal took away the most victories, winning all three categories they were nominated in: Best Metal Song of 2015, Best Live Act and Most Devoted Fans. The Japanese sensation amassed hundreds of thousands of votes, demonstrating they will be a competitive force in the years to come. Last year, BabyMetal won Best New Artist of 2014 and have quickly made the ascent to dominating just one year later.

Also winning multiple awards were Slipknot and Ghost, each with one band victory and one band member victory. Slipknot were voted the Best Metal Band of 2015 with Corey Taylor winning the Rock Titan award. Ghost won Best Metal Album of 2015 and a Nameless Ghoul was crowned Best Bassist of 2015.
