Extreme – Getting the Fuck Out

Extreme are back with their first studio album in over a decade, “Six”. We spoke to Nuno Bettencourt at his home in California about the record, which he did not want to be a soundtrack for the pandemic, but the soundtrack to “getting the fuck out” of it. He told us how Eddie Van Halen surprised him with a visit as he recorded the “Rise” solo, what it’s like to receive high praise from Brian May and other guitar heroes and, exclusively for the first time ever, that he is excited about his idea for the next Extreme album.

Extreme + Living Colour @ O2 Academy, Bristol, England

The sold out crowd were packed tightly in the venue, elbow to elbow, in anticipation of Extreme’s performance. There was not a spare space anywhere, and some people had to stand on the stairs that lead to the balcony. This is a band that are still fresh, still relevant, and this was evident from the moment they stepped on stage and throughout their two hour set.

Extreme | Six

It’s been 15 long years since Extreme, a band comprised of supremely talented individuals including one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Nuno Bettencourt, released an album. Was it worth the wait? Absolutely, but the strongest punches the album delivers are the first tracks on the record.


Extreme – venter fortsatt på sluttpoenget

Årets store trend for band som var svære på 80- og 90-tallet som har gjenforent seg på 2000-tallet etter noen års avbrudd, er å gi ut en liveskive til glede for en sulteforet fanskare, og da helst på det italienske plateselskapet Frontiers. Og denne trenden har også et gjenforent Extreme fulgt opp med den doble liveskiva/DVDen “Take Us Alive”, for å følge opp den noget skuffende comebackskive “Saudades De Rock” fra 2008. I den anledning slo vi av en prat med Extremes vokalist Gary Cherone.
