The bass players for two of the biggest heavy metal bands around are working together!

If you’re a fan of Anthrax or Megadeth, check this out. Dave Ellefson and Frank Bello have teamed up as Altitudes & Attitude.  Gus G. makes an appearance as well.

Frank and Dave had been spending a lot of time together recently doing “Metal Masters” bass clinics.  While traveling around doing those, they began to write.  According to Ellefson:

“What started out as simple bass ideas quickly developed into some really great songs together.” “Our fans would probably never suspect that a couple of metal bass players would have songs like these inside of us. It’s exciting to write melody with diversity while still pushing the limits of lead-bass playing. Frank’s singing, and both of us playing guitars and other instruments, gave us a whole new dimension for creative opportunities.”

Hopefully, they’ll return to their respective bands at some point. Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano left to help Volbeat record their CD and never came back! Check out their first song, Booze & Cigarettes, right here and listen for it during Q Connected Sunday night at 10 p.m. on KLAQ.
