Biography

Extrema are not just another Italian Heavy Metal band, they are Italian heavy Metal! The band, driven by the crunchingly abrasive guitars and energetic personality of Tommy Massara, came to light During the cold Milanese Winter of 86. However the definitive line-up (Mattia Bigi on Bass, Christiano Dalla Peligrino on Drums and GianLuca Perotti on Vocals) was not set in stone until 1989. There then came, after some initial hardships and a spell in the U. S, the forging of a united, solid and extremely tight unit. 1993 saw the release of their first studio album Tension at the seams. The release hit the Italian Metal scene full frontal, which at the time was suffering an identity crises, and as a result started to look upon Extrema as their focal point. The album enjoyed world wide release and was closely followed by an Italian tour cumulating in opening slots for Mettalica as well as the huge Italian star Vasco Rossi who personally chose the band. Their video Child of Boogaow caused interest outside the then rather closed and tight nit Italian Metal scene. The end of 93 saw the release of the mini LP Proud, powerful n alive which included the superb cover of the Dead Kennedys Too drunk to fuck In Jan 1994, Extrema were well and truly baptized, when after enthusiastic reviews they dominated the polls in the best new band category.

    Ragazzi,nel panorama mesto e grigio della musica italiana,gli Extrema sono una delle poche realta' da salvare.Ok,avranno un manipolo di fedeli rispetto alle "tribu'" di fans per Liga,Vasco,Pausini ecc.ecc. ma almeno loro sono un gruppo che non si e' svenduto al successo ed al commerciale.Li ho ascoltati a Firenze lo scorso luglio come supporto ai Motorhead e mi sono piaciuti.Trash metal?Si e no,forse i primi album un po' di piu' ma suonano comunque un rock duro ed essenziale.Grandi EXTREMA!!!!!!!!!!

    Grandi Extrema, li ho visti a Firenze una decina di giorni fa come opener dei Motörhead e hanno spaccato di brutto. Dal vivo ottimi i vecchi classici ma notevoli anche i pezzi nuovi!
