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!
OTEP ‘s seventh studio album and Napalm Records debut: GENERATION DOOM produced by Howard Benson was released last Friday! April 15th. GENERATION DOOM can be ordered HERE.
The latest single from the GENERATION DOOM, entitled “In Cold Blood” has been receiving radio play across the country and today OTEP unveils the epic video for the song. The video was directed Paul R. Brown who has worked with the likes of My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, Audioslave, Slipknot, Sevendust, Bullet for My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold and Static-X to name a few.
