Formed from the poetic marrow of creative intercourse, OTEP is more than a band. OTEP is an Art Movement, a Revolution; Breaking ground. Breaking rules. Breaking barriers. Articulate. Aggressive. Pure Adrenaline. ARTcore of Heavy Mental Rock.” This is how mastermind/vocalist OTEP Shamaya and her band have been described and this album proves this truth!
Transcending from the darkness, like wolves into the light, OTEP is an explosion of inspiration and motivation, empowered by their dedication to the arts, being a voice for the voiceless, and fighting injustice. Rising from the labyrinth of Los Angeles, California, OTEP is unleashing a roaring anthem: GENERATION DOOM.
