Hold on tight! Exit festival has once again proven that they really know what bands should besiege the infamous Petrovaradin Fortress. Held in Novi Sad (5-9th July), Serbia, this festival is more than a good excuse for all of you headbangers to storm the infamous Explosive Stage, one of many at this prestigeous event. This year’s line up at Explosive stage is absolutely awesome! One of the greatest acts are the legendary German thrashers, Destruction who along with Sodom, Tankard and Kreator share part in the Big Teutonic Four of thrash metal! Fans will be pleased to hear some of their greatest songs from albums such as Sentence of Death/Infernal Overkill, Eternal Devastation and Release from Agony! Hardcore veterans and the pioneers of D-Beat, Discharge, who were crucial for the making of both hardcore and thrash metal scenes are also one of those bands you MUST hear live! Fans of hardcore would also appreciate to hear Rattos De Porrao, Brazilian punks who are also known for their collaboration with Sepultura! For those of you who are deep into the frosty woods of black metal, Samael is the real deal! Of course, the most popular band on the bill are the US based melodic death metal legends Black Dahlia Murder! But the biggest surprise of this year’s line up is Full of Hell, grindcore band whose aggressiveness and sheer brutality on stage are unmached! For those of you who enjoy a more settled, calm and cheerful sound and who are more prone to listening to folk metal, Arkona is the real deal! And in the end, you must check out local thrash and death metal legions brought to you by Quasarborn and Sacramental Blood! What are you waiting for? Order your tickets ASAP!
