Atisa brings you into a world of emotional elements with the mixture and complexity of Swedish melodic metal, the groove of US hard-rock and heavy metal to fuel the power of this full force metal machine. Atisa brings all of the essential elements accessibility, technicality still melodic and emotional giving you the best of all worlds.
Atisa is not your typical female fronted metal band, Vocalist Theresa Elizabeth brings nontraditional style of writing when it comes to her vocals which allows her to step outside the box in this genre along with that Atisa fuses intense melodic harmonies, technical rhythms, unconventional grooves, creative technical drumming and of course extreme brutal growls and screams mixed with beautiful versatile singing.
Atisa formed in Los Angeles, California. Mike Gilyeart and Theresa Elizabeth whom met through Musicians Institute in 2007, conversed about their vision and future knowing that they had the same taste in music and similar business minded ideas, thus leading the formation of ATISA. Through various lineup changes and performances, at a time Los Angeles was not the place for Atisa. They decided to relocate to Seattle, Washington where they could REFUEL, EVOLVE, DEFINE, and that is exactly what they did. As of October 2012 Atisa released The Beginning.
