WELSH boys Bullet For My Valentine were booed last night when they collected their award for Best UK Band.

As a sea of black descended on top London night spot Koko for the fifth annual Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, the boys seemed shocked at their reception.

But the crowd only had time for Californian quartet Machine Head - who played an incredible live set following their appearance at Download Festival just days earlier. 

They stole the show with two awards including Best Album for the critically-acclaimed The Blackening.

Frontman Rob Flynn also picked up the prestigious Golden God accolade - the award show’s top honour.

Lamb of God - who also put on a fantastic performance - walked away with just one gong, despite an impressive five nominations.

Other celebs included Slayer, guitar god Slash and the Black Sabbath boys.
