The group formed in 1988 at Radio Onda Rossa during the hip-hop broadcast that Militant A kept as a DJ with his band then called "Onda Rossa Posse". In this context Militant A, and his partner Castro X, starts posting first rhymes, introducing Italian texts in Rap music. In 1989, they began to take concerts in community centers, first in Rome, then throughout Italy.
After 1990 the experience of Assalti Frontali starts with the presence of Militant A guaranteeing the continuity of the project, and welcoming various artists such as X Castro, NCOT, 00199, Susi, Brutopop, Ice One, Lou X, Valerio AKA Guerra, SanSante, Sioux, Penni, LaTLaO. The discs of the ‘90s are legend of italian hip-hop ("Terra di nessuno”, "Conflitto", "Banditi”).
In 1993, Assalti Frontali participates in the soundtrack of "Sud", by Gabriele Salvatores, writing the song that opens the film.
In 2007 Assalti Frontali produces "HSL - Hic sunt leones", played by Brutopop and mixed in Euskadi in the Kaki Arkarazu studio.
In 2006 the group changed its mix: voice Militant A, flanked by Pol G and Glasnost that fill the music with the soulful rhymes and irony; the music is composed by the young Bonnot who writes most of the songs of "Mi sa che stanotte…", with which Assalti Frontali won the PIMI (Italian Prize for Independent Music), as "Best Album 2006".
In 2008 Assalti Frontali produces "Un’intesa perfetta", while in 2011 they released "Profondo rosso", a compact disc with 10 tracks with a strong identity that mark an era of exciting movements in different areas and in a period marked by the economic crisis. Songs like "Roma meticcia" (video by Marcello Saurino), "Cattivi maestri", "Lampedusa lo sa", "Mamy" (video by Marcello Saurino), "Sono cool questi rom", "Spugne", become true street anthems.
In July 19, 2014 "Il lago che combatte" is released in collaboration with Il Muro del Canto. This song became viral, making everyone know about the existence and the story of SNIA lake, the only natural lake in Rome.
In November of 2016 the ninth album is produced: "Mille Gruppi avanzano", preceded by the singles "Spiaggia libera" (video of Daniel Martinisi) and "Io sono con te" (video by Marcello Saurino).
