Sepsiss is a female fronted metal band from Manchester, NH....founded in 2011 by Melissa Wolfe & William Savant.
They combine a traditional heavy metal sound with modern rythyms, light synths, & a blend of urban hardcore. Melissa sings clean vocals while William adds harsher vocal pieces. Then you have heavy percussion alongside William's synths, composition, and multi-genre experience, delivering a wide variety of down-tuned grueling bass, traditional, urban, modernized heavy ensembles. Usually a 6-piece; the group specializes in live shows, passionate fans, and hard work ethic.
Melissa Wolfe and William Savant were raised on the seacoast , in NH were both grew up on a healthy dose of culture and art .

William Savant , being from Portsmouth and having a back round in live events, recording and rap music , developed a local reputation inspiring collections of musicians to work on projects, throughout the region. Guitar enthusiast, He held auditions in Manchester 2010 for a ' new type of heavy metal' . Interested in particulars, He sought out original ideas in cooperating Latin , African drums and unique guitar approach and in synco -metro -metal style .
A big part of this adventure was finding a critically and dynamically unique voice to match the sonic fingerprint of the texture and tambre ideas. Melissa Auditioned for the act in the summer of 2010. The band and staff members mistakenly misplaced the names on the scheduled audition. No one in the staff knew her name and wrote her down as ashley. Ashley never made it. But...Melissa did! And so , it wasnt long before William and Melissa started crafting up ideas to embellish the blueprint. With so many amazing singers in the genre, Sepsiss aims for an honest texture and a true note. melissa dramatic dark pop cuts through heavy guitars sweetly with many versions of her personality in the mix spectrum. Heavy was a must , and clean was a MUST. Focusing on singing verses , sprinkled with appropriately placed textured screaming, harmony lines and dance ready formula. Keyboards are played hip hop style with an occasional classical outline.
