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 read more...

EXTREMA The Positive Pressure (Of Injustice)

The positive pressure of Pantera...

Genre: thrash metal / groove metal

This album "The Positive Influence ... of Pressure" by Italian thrash metal band Extrema is actually okay.

It is basically a sort of Pantera rip-off type of groove metal - especially the vocals are very influenced by Phil Anselmo, but there is also a lot of midtempo Pantera-style heavy, groovy riffage. This is both a good and a bad thing. The good thing is that we are dealing with Pantera-style riffage, and Pantera-style riffage is, per se, a good thing. The bad thing is that Pantera-style riffage had already been made by Pantera themselves, and there really is no need for another band to do that.

That being said, I think that a good number of the groovy riffs om this album sound original. For instance, "To Hell" is certainly not a Pantera rip-off track (if you ignore the vocals) although it is groovy. There are a couple of tracks like that, which is what makes this album okay.

Fans of groove metal might enjoy this album... if they can forgive Extrema for sounding like a second-rate Pantera.
