Without Name - The Way Of Purity - Italy: "We only play for people we respect and trust because we want to make sure that our message is properly received by people present at the show. We don't play for money, we don't play for the fame. All his said you can already guess what we think of Explosive stage and why we played there. Surrounded by the flames on the stage, late at night, we felt like creating our own hell. Everytime that Explosive Stage will call us, we'll answer and play because people that act like us are few but we are able to recognise them."
Emil - G.U.B. - Slovenia: "Playing on The Explosive Stage on one of the biggest festivals in Europe was an experiance we will never forget. It doesn't happen everyday that you get to share the stage with bands such as The Exploited, Suicidal Tendencies, Hitman, Al and the Black Cats and many many more and being one of the youngest to perform made us even more excited about the whole thing needless to say that we had the best sound on stage so far."
Honza Kapak - Hellsound Studios - Czech Republic: "I personally had chances to play with 5 different bands at ExitÂ´s Exlosive stage and I always simply loved performing there. Wherever looking, you meet just full proffesionality - organizers, stage/sound crew, luxury hotel accomodation, and last but not least.... huge crowd of hungry serbian metal fans ready to make your performance a special event. Then, touring the countless number of other Exit stages with simply any kind of music you could just imagine makes this festival something very unique and rare for me personally. Whenever I took part I simply didnt wanna go home. Hope to get back soon."

We also managed to meet Lee Dorian and the guys from mighty Cathedral backstage and that was a pretty unique experience too."
Timur Iskandarov - Tamerlan - Serbia/Russia: "It was the first time for me and my friends to present the music in this kind of environment. The ancient atmosphere of Petrovaradin fortress and the great mood of the visitors combined with fantastic equipment and technical characteristics of the stage itself has made this one of the best Tamerlan performances. It was just magical and hopes are truly high to experience something like that once again."
Urok - The Stone - Serbia: "Hellish stage for hellish band! When ever The Stone strike at Explosive stage we feel like rising hell all over again and again!
