On paper, Get It Out, the new full-length debut from Altitudes & Attitude, might imply something other than a collection of smartly crafted melodic hard-rock songs. After all, Altitudes & Attitude is a collaboration between Anthrax’s Frank Bello and Megadeth’s David Ellefson – two virtuosic bass players who’ve anchored some of the fiercest thrash records of all time. But Get It Outreaches far beyond the boundaries of an all-star metal outing or an instrumental chops fest. Tuneful yet aggressive, fun yet thought-provoking, the album is a testament to the expressive strength of rock song-craft. Boasting producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Steel Panther), drummer Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle, Devo, Filter) and a deep bench of guest stars including Ace Frehley and Gus G, the record also represents the fulfillment of a lifelong but little-known ambition for two uniquely gifted artists. As Bello puts it, “All I ever wanted to do was write good songs. I’ve always been a melody guy. I love hooks; I love catchy songs with a good riff.”
A kind of rock ‘n’ roll primal-scream therapy, Get It Out is the result of nearly four years of writing and recording sessions – and decades of touring, searching, striving and living. “I’ve learned that writing songs is very cathartic,” Bello says.
