SLIPKNOT vocalist Corey Taylor and ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian will host this year's Kerrang! Awards, which will be held at a "top-secret" London, England location on August 3.

"It's going to be awesome presenting the Awards with my good friend Corey," says Scott Ian. "I've done it the past few years on my own and let me just say it gets a little lonely up there. I really can't wait."

"When I was asked to co-host the Kerrang! Awards my response was very simple: when and where?" adds Taylor. "Even though I don't stand a chance in hell of keeping up with the mighty Scott Ian, I plan to hold my own in the only way I know possible... through sheer determination and large amounts of coffee."

When asked if Taylor should wear his trademark SLIPKNOT mask onstage for the ceremony, Scott Ian replied: "I'd actually prefer it if he didn't because I find it a little disconcerting. Anyway, why should he get to hide away? Maybe I should be the one wearing a mask? See how he likes it!"

"Scott and I are going to have the time of our lives," Taylor insisted. "And maybe if I'm lucky, he'll dance with me later."
