Altitudes and Attitude - Altitudes and Attitude

Altitudes & Attitude - Altitudes & Attitude (2014) Megaforce Records
Produced by David Ellefson / Frank Bello / Jay Ruston
Tracks : 1.Booze and cigarettes 2.Here again 3.Tell the world
3,5 out of 5

This is more or less a supergroup with a rather impressive debut EP coming in January 2014, Altitudes and Attitude feature David Ellefson (Megadeth) - Guitars/Bass, Frank Bello (Anthrax) - Lead Vocals/Guitars and Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle) - Drums. Plus a guest appearance from Gus G - Lead guitar on the track "Here again".
The fans probably expect a thrashmetal affair but that´s where you´re wrong, these songs have more in common with bands like Janes Addiction, Filter and pre)Thing. The music on this EP can be described as a mix between 90´s alternative metal and modern rock, I love the bass solo in "Here again" but I really get all excited when I hear splendid songs like "Booze and cigarettes" and "Tell the world". Especially "Tell the world" is a killer.
What a surprise!
