I present new analytic solutions of type IIB supergravity with fully backreacting D7-branes describing the addition of an arbitrary number of flavors to the Klebanov-Tseytlin and Klebanov-Strassler theories. I provide a detailed analysis of the field theory and of the duality cascade which describes its RG flow, Seiberg duality is understood as a large gauge transformation in supergravity. Moreover the string background suggests that the UV behavior is a duality wall.
