The third EP by cult Italian Thrash/Groove Metal band.
Most fans probably already know that Thrash Metal is a fusion of Punk Rock and Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal is still the dominant ingredient, but sometimes the Punk Rock aspect is a bit stronger than usual like in this case here. Extrema’s “The Old School EP” is definitely a Thrash Metal album, but the Thrash Metal’s Punk Rock roots shine through quite a bit.
Already with the first song, you get a super-fast Thrash Metal treatment with that certain Punk Rock touch that you can also hear on many Tankard albums. Their music is similar. Extrema’s (and Tankard’s) Thrash Metal is still a nice blend of Thrash Metal with a certain Punk Rock vibe and screaming guitars. Yes, the guitar is a bit repetitive at times, but it still suits the song just fine.
5-song EP also features 2 live bonus-tracks.
Overall, this is a nice EP. Extrema does obviously not reinvent the genre, but this is Old School Thrash Metal! Old School Tankard-style Thrash Metal just as it should be!!
