Highly rated vocalist in the Melodic Rock field Matti Alfonzetti had made his name with British Hard Rockers JAGGED EDGE and domestic artists BAM BAM BOYS, WASA EXPRESS and SKINTRADE among others. Alfonzetti had also had experience demoing with TALISMAN.
Upon JAGGED EDGE's demise Alfonzetti travelled back to his homeland to front the Pop-AOR act BOXER for an eponymous album in 1998. He would then assemble the suitably titled ALFONZETTI. Musically the band explored commercial Hard Rock with AOR balladry of distinction.
