). 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," says Ellefson
. "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." "We thought it would be cool to let fans hear something they wouldn't expect from us — which is what ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE
is," adds Bello
