With the Awards ceremony done, all gathered at Rouge for the Kerrang! Awards after-party - with the beers a-flowing, a merry time was had by all... Cristian & Laz running round snapping shots of themselves with System Of A Down, Lars Ulrich, & Linkin Park amongst others... Robert even indulging in a spot of impromptu The Darkness kareoke (we believe in a thing called love too)... Acey, cool as ever, taking all the shenanigans in his stride.

Watch this space for their collective photos and memories of the event. We make no apologies if said memories are somewhat confused and hazy... the Roadrunner presence was still going strong after 4am this morning....
