Legendary Italian metal band EXTREMA has announced that it has parted ways with V2 Records and signed a new worldwide deal with Scarlet Records. The band, whose latest full-length effort, "Set The World On Fire", was released in 2006, is working on a double DVD, entitled "Murder Tunes & Broken Bones – 20-Year Anniversary DVD". Due at the end of May, the set will include the complete concert recorded live at Milan's Rolling Stone during the band's most recent Italian tour and a long documentary narrating the 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, D.R.I., 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 the summer Scarlet Records will re-release the band's entire catalog, from 1992's "Tension At The Seams" to the recent "Set The World On Fire", including the out-of-print "Better Mad Than Dead" (2001), with new artwork and bonus tracks.

EXTREMA, who were recently rejoined by singer Gianluca "GL" Perotti, is preparing another gigantic tour of Italy. More information will be made available soon.
