“Formed from the poetic marrow of creative intercourse, OTEP is an Art Project/Band/Movement/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 allies have been described and this album proves this truth!
The details of OTEP‘s seventh studio record and Napalm Records Debut Generation Doom have been revealed. The album is set for an April 15th release. Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed. Initial pre-orders are available HERE.
OTEP commented on the new album:
“Revolution is the opiate of the artist. In pain. We remain. But healed in the sweet addiction to art. We are. For this album, I unleashed my soul and allowed it to soar freely. I communed with the moon in the chrome of its light. I kissed the sun at its fiery height. I waged war with the Nightmare Kings, I sinned with the opalescent women in the roaring seas of poetry. On a cycloptic mare, hooves made of iron and air, I charged into the inky heart of art and roared at the old gods in the ashes of their ruin, “You can’t look away, WE ARE YOUR MISTAKE. WE… ARE…
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 titled Generation Doom.
With OTEP Shamaya’s multifaceted vocal approach, from gut wrenching roars to soft seductive poetry to singing with a surprisingly magically beautiful voice, to her evolution as a writer and story teller, Generation Doom erupts with thunderous, punishing grooves that harmoniously detonate into dark industrial fury with magma flows of hard rock melodies that seamlessly shape shift into a mysterious musical beast we’ve just discovered, those who’ve heard Generation Doom say it’s best described as “genius, heart stopping and one of a kind.” Where will OTEP`s courageous odyssey take them? Nothing seems impossible.
