Legendary Italian metal band EXTREMA have just announced that they’ve parted company with V2 Records and signed a new worldwide deal with SCARLET RECORDS.
The band, who’s latest full length effort, ‘Set The World On Fire’, was released in 2006, is working on a double DVD set, titled ‘Murder Tunes & Broken Bones – 20 Years Anniversary DVD’, set to be released at the end of May 2007, which will include the complete concert recorded live at Milan’s Rolling Stone during the last Italian tour and a long documentary narrating the whole band’s career (20 years of metal madness with highlights such as the support slot for Slayer in Milan during the infamous ‘Reign In Blood’ tour and many other shows with legendary bands like Metallica, DRI, Danzig, Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, Sepultura, Testament…), with lots of unreleased interviews, video footage (including the now legendary show with Metallica at Turin’s Delle Alpi stadium in 1993) and extras. A live CD, ‘Raisin’ Hell With Friends: Extrema Live’, will also be released along the DVD. After next summer Scarlet Records will also release the whole band’s catalogue, from the mighty ‘Tension At The Seams’ (1992), till the recent ‘Set The World On Fire’, including the no longer available ‘Better Mad Than Dead’ (2001), with new artwork and bonus tracks. But it’s also time to speak about the future: as it happens with every so called rock’n’roll band, splits, reunions and so on, former singer Gianluca “GL” Perotti, who left the band mainly for personal reasons after the show in Verona in November 2006, is Extrema’s singer once again, having solved his problems with the rest of the guys. Last, but not least, Extrema are fully intentioned to embark on another gigantic tour across Italy and not only. More important news to come.
