In three weeks, on May 10th, 2019, Italian groove thrash metallers Extrema will release their seventh studio album “Headbanging Forever”, via Rockshots Records! Today the band has unleashed another track off their new record.

Check out the breakneck-paced track “Pitch Black Eyes” below.

Extrema’s frontman Tiziano Spigno states: “The lyrics are inspired by Lovercraft’s prose poem ‘Nyarlathotep’. The poem itself is a bleak view of human civilization in decline: Nyarlathotep is a tall and swarthy man, whom wanders the Earth, demonstrating his magical powers. In every city he gets, he brings terror and destruction, announcing the world’s collapse”.

For this album, the band enlisted Gustavo Sazes (Machine Head, Arch Enemy, Angra, Iced Earth, Gus G., Aamaranthe, a.o.) to create the album artwork.

“Headbanging Forever” has been produced by Tommy Massara & Gabriele Ravaglia. Recorded and mixed by Gabriele Ravaglia & Maxx Canali at the Fear Studio in Italy, and it has been mastered by Alberto Cutolo at Massive Arts studios in Milan.

Extrema’s original line-up was established between 1985 and 1986 in Milan, Italy. In a very short time, the band led by guitars player Tommy Massara achieved a huge success. Tommy is the only remaining member of the original line-up, and over the years he also played the role of artistic and executive producer.

Hundreds of concerts made the band more and more close-knit and open towards a constant growth path, capable from the beginning of welcoming influences external to heavy metal, a consistent choice within an evolutionary framework which saw Extrema start from the rebellious attitude of Motörhead to later incorporate the style of Californian thrash metal, a scene with which the band shared the utmost care for the technical side of music and a devastating presence on stage.

The band’s reputation as musicians and performers kept growing in a perpetual live context, with extensive tours and the participation to prestigious festivals with the likes of Metallica, Slayer, Motörhead, and Korn, a.o.

Extraneous from the beginning to political and ideological implications of any kind, Extrema’s lyrics have always strived to alternate challenging and contemporary themes with lighter subjects, true to rock & roll form.

In May 2017 the band welcomed the new frontman Tiziano Spigno. Thanks to his entry, Extrema can finally release all the creativity repressed in recent years: a violent, direct and engaging approach which is - at the same time - also varied, courageous and experimental, resulting in the new album “Headbanging Forever”.
