To truly make a difference, one must be different. From the very start, OTEP was always a band on a mission: To open minds, win hearts and to push music into places that it has never dared to step before.
Led by vocalist, lyricist and shamnic figurehead Otep Shamaya, the Los Angeles crew exploded into the consciousness of rock and metal fans worldwide with their debut album Seves Tra in 2002. With their leader’s scabrous, evocative poetry front and center, OTEP’s hybrid sound immediately stood apart from the crowd while showcasing a liberated artistic philosophy that has driven band and singer breathlessly forward. Incorporating everything from heavy metal and punk rock to experimental electronics and cutting edge hip-hop. OTEP’s sound resonated strongly within a great and ever-expanding number of converts.
Otep Shamaya is a cultural anomaly. An award winning writer, musician, performance artist and activist for LGBTQ rights and animal welfare. REVOLVER MAGAZINE has called her one of the most prominent voices for social change in modern American music.
