we are at the start of the new and again I find myself playing catch up
with albums that have slipped through the net, but this also gives me
time to highlight some of the albums that you should be adding to you
collections and one such release is the Matti Alfonzetti’s latest
album ‘Here Comes The Night'.
new album see Alfonzetti return the Hard Rock scene with a stunning
release, although he’s never really been that far away from it as he
co-wrote songs for The Poodles ‘Metal Will Stand Tall’ album.
But it's his first solo album ‘Ready’ and its follow up ‘Machine' that really got the name of Alfonzetti firmly back on the lips of the melodic and hard rock fans. Never one to rest on his laurel's he’s always found new and exciting ways to expand in the business.
was his return to the musical style of ‘Ready’ that really grabbed
the Melodic/Hard Rock fans attention and he follows this up with this
excellent release ‘Here Comes The Night’. This is what fans of
the man have been waiting for and what better way to get the album
started than with ‘Losing You’. A great opener that takes up
exactly where 'Ready' left off, with an up-tempo riff laden rocker that
sets the bar for the rest of the album.
release continues to impress with the excellent title track ‘Here
Comes The Night’, a real melodic gem with the main man delivering a
velvet smooth vocal that will melt the hardest of hearts, before pick
the tempo back up with the very modern hard edged rocker ‘I’ll Wait
For You’. Then it's back to the pure bred Melodic Rock with the
stunning ‘Heartbreaker’ and that velvet smooth vocal simply oozes
tempo is picked up once more with the rockin’ 'Don’t Listen To Your
Heart’, before bringing a touch of the blues to proceedings ‘Why
Can't You Love Me’, then it's back to the rich melodies with the
ballad ‘Lay Your Love On Me’.
really get going with the anthemic rocker 'Rock N' Roll Heart’, which
is a real heads down boogie fest that will have you jumping from the
off. After that we're in need of a little cool down and what
better way than with another great ballad in the form of ‘Set Me
Free’. This stunning release comes to a close with what is my
favourite track off the album, the funk filled rocker ‘I Will Never
Let You Fall’, which caps off a great return to the Melodic Rock fold
for Matti Alfonzetti. Its been a long time coming, but it’s well
worth the wait.
