Megadeth’s Ellefson Starts New Band With Anthrax’s Bello
Two heavy metal legends are coming together in a new project called Altitudes and Attitude.
The band is the brainchild of longtime friends Frank Bello of Anthrax and Megadeth’s David Ellefson.
The new group will release its self-titled EP on January 14.
The two bassists began writing music together while traveling the world during clinics now known as “Metal Masters.”
“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.”
