Time for some good ol´ thrashmetal from Italy, Extrema have been around since 1987. They have shared the stage with titans like Metallica, Slayer and KoRn and released 6 studio albums including the new one "The seed of foolishness". Page Hamilton of Helmet did a guest appearance on their previous album from 2009 but now they´re back with some classic Bay Area influenced thrashmetal, just listen to the new single "Pyre of fire" that bring thoughts to Metal Church and Anthrax. The 6 minute long "Ending of prophecies" has a majestic ending that would do just fine on a Queensryche album, the more grunge-like "Bones" will please fans of Alice in Chains. What a powerful song. The album closes with a real singalong chorus in "A moment of truth", a nice classic rock tune that could´ve been written by Ugly Kid Joe. This is great metal folks.
