October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

One of the worst records ever released by MTM. Total nonsense, this modern metal. Nuff said !

I don´t know if Freddy is right or not, 'cause I have'nt heard this album yet, but the first one, called READY, is incredibly good, pure AOR 100%.

From: John Date: July 22, 2003 at 13:45
The first couple of songs take some getting used to. But if you can look past the VERY modern sound, the melody is in there. Give it a chance if you liked the first.

From: Date: July 25, 2003 at 3:57
Have to agree with Freddy. Major disappointment. Typical example of a band that want to evolve. Butn can i say its the wrong direction they are taking. First album was superb. It made them stand out of so many others. But this is more of the same crap thats out there. Well not worth talking any further about this album. I hope this band finds the way back............

From: tomcat Date: October 25, 2003 at 10:49
well, i kinda like this release..i remember driving my car to pick up some wine last summer and on my compilation cds i make there was this song 'give it all away'..it was a cool tune, the same can be said for 'happy guy'.. Alfonzetti just tried something else and i must say it's cool enuff for me...

From: CC Date: February 19, 2004 at 10:51
I really love this album,yes its got that modern guitar sound but Alfonzettis voice brings it back down to the melodic rock arena that he is best known for. I think the way he has combined both modern & classic sounds is really cool & he should be applauded!

From: TIM (2) Date: July 7, 2004 at 10:20
Cannot believe MTM released this rubbish, it's just a horror-show from beginning to end. Decent vocals, but no tunes and absolutely no reason to play this more than once whatsoever. It won't even do the decent thing and fetch a decent eBay price as no bugger wants it. Crap. 0/10.

From: jeff Date: July 14, 2004 at 16:07
this cd is crap. big fan of mattis, but this is crap.

From: Rycheage Date: July 15, 2004 at 20:55
No cohesiveness at all. Pure crap and it all sounds alike. Not recommended and DOES NOT sound like 'Ready'. That was at least decent AOR. This is a poor excuse for a release.

From: Kip Date: September 28, 2004 at 16:27
Why the hell would a band who released their first CD in 2000, come back with a new metal piece of garbage like this? What, did they lear about grunge after the new millennium? Did they suddenly say - OH SHIT I guess we better make a grunge album since good rock and metal isn't popular anymore... Well DUH!?? But can anyone think of ONE melodic rock band that went on to make it big in another genre??? The only ONE I can think of that crossed over 'okay' is Southgang to Marvelous 3.

From: Kip Date: September 28, 2004 at 16:30
But then again Southgang's crossover made more sense because it was back in the early 90's. Which brings me back to my original question - Why would a band go from melodic to crap between the years 2000 and 2002? Seriously if I were in their shoes I'd say 'Well since I play melodic rock I know I'll never be HUGE so I'll just write songs I like and stay true to myself' but no - they did, and so many other bands didn't - and everyone who does this instantly loses me as a fan until they go back.

From: Erik Date: January 24, 2005 at 5:22
Matti( Bam bam boys, Jagged Edge) has one of the best voices around but this is just horrible stuff. Grunge attempt at its worst. How can a band release such a follow after the perfect "Ready". Just avoid this one and get the their first album which has a few gems on it.

From: Geoff Date: January 24, 2005 at 5:54
Matt Alfonzetti is a great artist and has written many brilliant melodic rock tracks, but I think this baffled many. There is no real point in releasing an album like this in 2002 on a lable like MTM. Odd decision, especially after Skintrade failed to make any sort of impression... but I do kind of like 'The bitter end'. I don't dislike the CD as I don't mind a few songs, but it's just extremely disappointing and Matt can do 100 percent better than this...

From: z4roxx Date: December 11, 2006 at 12:56
Too boring,modern and anonymous to be an Alfonzetti’s work.I hold it only for his name,an holy singer who made great everything(also that painful and horrible Damned Nation cd).Too bad to be sung by Matti.

From: juan carlos Date: August 22, 2007 at 12:50
"The Bitter End" es un buen tema con sonido actual y según mi amigo Fexstyx el album en sí es bien moderno y con aires Grunge, Al menos el tema en cuestión no está nada mal. El único tema bueno del album, pues parece que sí.

From: hair metal again Date: February 20, 2014 at 12:54
ok release by ALFONZETTI,tryin to mix his previous sound with the SKINTRADE ones!the result is acceptable and i cant understand the negativity about it!at least it has fine musicianship and some good songs!"the bitter end" is a great song!
