“Late”

Altitudes and Attitude

(Single Review)

Altitudes and Attitude is a band I recently played on my radio show, Rockstarclassics. I found the duo’s more radio-friendly approach was more apt for a Monday afternoon show.

The band is the brainchild of Anthrax’s bassist, Frankie Bello, and Megadeth’s bassist, Dave Ellefson. The duo—most notable for their contribution to Thrash Metal—released “Late,” from their most recent album, “Get It Out.” This is a follow-up to 2014’s self-titled EP, which is produced by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther, Stone Sour). The music is the product of nearly ten years of nonstop touring and writing together to create a cathartic exercise for Bello. “Late” is a biography of years of pent-up rage caused by highs and lows of his life (including the death of his brother, as well as his father running away from home when he was a child). The lyrics are heartfelt, but the music poignant.
