The selection process for induction into the Hall of Heavy Metal History is overseen by the Hall of Heavy Metal History Nominating Committee. The committee is comprised of major record company executives and Legendary musicians. Nominations for induction into the Hall are submitted by both the Nomination Committee and fans alike. Fans can submit a potential nominee, via an online form between April and September.
In September, the anonymous nomination ballots are collected from the fans and the Nominating Committee. The Committee meets to review and count each vote for each Nominee in their respective categories. The Nominees with the most votes in their category are then officially Inducted into the Hall of Heavy Metal History by the Nominating Committee.
