"Almost 11" (Pavement Entertainment; 2020)

Reviewed by Snidermann

I dig all configurations of bands: three-person (Motorhead, Rush), four-person (Van Halen, Thin Lizzy, Kiss) and of course five-person (AC/DC, Judas Priest). My current review is a band called Sepsiss and their 2020 recording "Almost 11."

Sepsiss has the usual five-person set up: drums, bass, lead, rhythm guitar and vocals. And what a vocalist they have in lead singer Melissa Wolfe. Sepsiss was started by Wolfe and William Savant. What a metal outfit they are! Strong guitars (of course), thundering bass and drums and, of course, the haunting vocals of Melissa Wolfe.

The muiscal presentation is outstanding from the start and never really lets up until the last chord has sounded. The mixture of heavy metal music and the angelic voice of Wolfe combine to make a truly killer musical experience.

The band's new album, "Take the World by Swarm," will be released in December 2023 (check out the video for "Bleedlines" here) but  for now, check out the heavy metal brilliance of "Almost 11." Like me, you'll find yourself anxiously awaiting the band's next release.

I'm gonna spin this fucker agian right now and maybe again after that. I think I found my current fave band!

Ckeck out for more information on this truly unique band.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
