Italian thrash-metal legends EXTREMA will join MAX & IGGOR CAVALERA on their one-off Italian show in Milan, November 10th, for the “Max & Iggor Cavalera … Return to Roots” tour. The two former members and founders of SEPULTURA are celebrating the 20 years of “Roots” by playing it in full on their European tour! “Roots” is without doubts considered one of the greatest masterpieces of metal, so far.
EXTREMA released their new effort, “The Old School EP”, on May 27 via Punishment 18 Records. The EP features five tracks originally written during the band’s heyday – primarily unheard as finished recordings until now.

at Live Club – Trezzo sull’Adda – Milan
Gates open: at 8pm
EXTREMA at 8:45pm

Watch the video for the refreshed track “Carcasses”, taken from the EXTREMA’s Old School EP:
The Old School EP embodies the spirit, immediacy and brutality of the years in which its tracks were originally written, accented by fresh, pummelling production. Recorded last year at Fear Studios in Alfonsine (Ravenna, Italy) with The Seed of Foolishness producer Gabry Ravaglia, these tracks do not just prompt the “old school” cliché – they are the real deal – recorded in classic brutal fashion with only minimal writing tweaks.
All five tracks were originally written in 1987, shortly after the release of EXTREMA‘s We Fuckin ‘ Care EP. Only one of these songs saw the light on an album – “Life” was originally released in 1993 on the band’s first full-length album Tension at the Seams. The track has been re-recorded for The Old School EP in addition to tracks the band is known for performing live-only or releasing as raw demos on rare tapes, including “Child Abuse”, the instrumental “M.A.S.S.A.C.R.O”, “Tribal Scream” and “Carcasses”. The idea came to guitarist Tommy Massara while tidying EXTREMA‘s audio archives. He began listening to a tape on which there were no notes or text records of any kind.
In addition to those tracks, “The Old School EP” is featuring two bonus tracks, including live versions of “Life” and Motörhead‘s “Ace of Spades”, both recorded in Rome, Italy.
