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.

About the song, Otep Shamaya says:
“LORDS OF WAR is a cry of defiance against the ever-encroaching military industrial complex, against police brutality, against tyranny in politics, against CAFO’s, against the injustices our people face on a daily basis. Revolution is the opiate of the artist. We’d rather be in battle than at peace. We’d rather be a wolf than a sheep. They’ve had their chance to reign. But this is our time, our moment. We are GENERATION DOOM.”
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.
With OTEP Shamaya’s multifaceted vocal approach, from gut wrenching roars to soft seductive poetry to singing with a surprisingly magically sultry voice, to her evolution as a writer and story teller, GENERATION DOOM erupts with thunderous grooves that harmoniously detonate into dark industrial fury with fiery flows of hard-rock melodies that seamlessly shift into a mysterious musical beast that takes your breath away. Those who’ve heard GENERATION DOOM have best described it as “genius, heart stopping, a classic, and one of a kind.”
Where will OTEP`s courageous odyssey take them? Now ….nothing seems impossible.
