Assalti Frontali is an Hip-Hop band from Roma, Italia. Their political attitude (close to left wing and strongly anti-fascist) is a main point in their lyrics, that rarely are not politically oriented.
Active since early ‘90, their first LP is “Terra Di Nessuno” (1991), that is a not-yet mature, but interesting work that gave Assalti Frontali a large visibility in the italian scene. “Conflitto” (1996) is probably their earlier real masterpiece, melting in one record a rock/punk instrumental attitude with rapped lyrics in an original and interesting release for the time. This record has a particular lyrics attitude that involves doubts and questions on life and society, with a very dark mood proper of other kinds of music; quite far from the usual “i am the man” hip-hop attitude.
after many years in the independent italian scene they signed for a major and realeasd “Banditi” for BMG. the record is musically more close to Hip-Hop stereotypes but it has still a very strong attitude in the lyrics.
In 2004 Assalti returned in the independet scene where they grew and released “HSL” (acronym for latin “Hic Sunt Leones”). During 2006, after only 2 years from their last record Assalti Frontali is back with “Mi Sa Che Stanotte…” that could become their second masterpiece and give a large popularity to the band.

after many years in the independent italian scene they signed for a major and realeasd “Banditi” for BMG. the record is musically more close to Hip-Hop stereotypes but has still a very strong attitude in the lyrics. Maybe Banditi will remain an isolated experiment in their career. In 2004 Assalti returned in the independet scene where they grew and released “HSL” (acronym for latin “Hic Sunt Leones”). During 2006, after only 2 years from their last record Assalti Frontali is back with “Mi Sa Che Stanotte…” that could become their second masterpiece and give a large popularity to the band.
