British rockers The Darkness have added to their extraordinary awards collection by winning the best video gong at London's METAL HAMMER AWARDS yesterday (07JUN04).

The flamboyant group won the award for their hit LOVE IS ONLY A FEELING video, which featured frontman Justin Hawkins and the band melodramatically playing guitar in Australia's Blue Mountains.

Heavy metal veterans Iron Maiden were named Best UK Act, Metallica won Best International Act, Slayer were named Best Live Act and Welsh rockers Funeral For A Friend won Best Breakthrough Band.
