KICK*ASS*METAL and the KICK*ASS*METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME. We have known for all of 2016 That Otep “Generation Doom” was the GREATEST Nu-METAL album of the year 2016, but there was news earlier in the year and in the middle of the year, that The Butcher Babies were going to unleash on Planet Metal, an album in late 2016, but the Butcher Babies just put out a press release, that there next Splatter Platter will be unleashed on Planet Metal in 2017.

 

So I was looking forward to the Greatest Groove Metal Band of this Decade the Butcher Babies, going up against THE GREATEST NU-METAL Vocalist and Band of all-time Otep, but it did not happen. So Otep easily wins the 2016 NuMetal Album of the year in 2016, with no competitors with in a million miles of Otep’s “Generation Doom” 2016

 

As a Otep “Generation Doom” another KICK*ASS*METAL Heavy Metal Hall of Fame album for Otep, just a perfect career, with artistic vision and integrity in tack….and aspiring Nu-Metal Vocalist. Otep has been the Greatest in NuMetal History since 2002….14 years of the greatest Nu-Metal Vocalist of all-time.

 

Personal Favorites from Otep’s “Generation Doom” are “Zero”  “In Cold Blood” “Royals” and “Equal Lefts and Equal Rights”

There are always 700 albums on my desk to be reviewed. And this gets the KICK*ASS*METAL treatment today, because the best of the best will always rise to the top, and Otep just carries a higher rating World-Wide, and of all-time over 99.9876% of the stuff on my desk at any given time. Otep does not make albums, these are MAJOR works of Supreme Immortal Art of the Highest Order !!!!!!!!!!

Out of all the NuMetal artist. Otep is the heaviest of the NuMetal bands, and are the most metallic in essence and are metal to the core and metal to the bone.

7th Full Length albums, and like the previous albums, it is just an album that will survive the test of time, and be around forever. We are not a NuMetal publication, we are a specialized press that deals with the subject matter of authenticity and originality, and have a gothic/avant garde/ symphonic/ dark metal slant to our coverage, along the WORLD-CLASS artistry lines of all-things KICK*ASS along the spectrum of Classical, Gothic, Rock, and Metal.

As a Otep fan since day 1, starting with the debut album, this was one of the Most anticipated albums of 2016.

After releasing 6 of the greatest albums of all-time and a couple of KICK*ASS and KILLER DVDs which are also the greatest of all-time.  All I really could do is just listen to this album, and see if there is any evocation based on originality in the song-writing.

Otep has a perfect career in our eyes with all releases rated at the

100 out of 100 PERFECT ALBUMS level of perfection.

The song-writing on this album is extremely top notch and World-Class, as well as the lyricism. Otep as a lyric writer is one of the best of the best of all-time.

Otep is a band who’s albums can fit PERFECTLY in between HEAVY ROTATION spins of Butcher Babies “Take It Like A Man” and Human Waste Project “E-Lux” just as easily as Crisis “Deathshead Extermination”, Holy Moses “Strength Power Will Passion” and Fear of God “Within The Veil”

The next section is the TOUR DATE NEWS

via LoudWire:

OTEP are set to release their seventh studio album, Generation Doom, and will be hitting the road in full support, embarking on a lengthy North American run stretching from April 8 through May 28. OTEP blurs the lines of categorization, employing rap and alternative elements in their hard-hitting sound.

Support on the trek will come from Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf singer) on select dates along with September Mourning, Through Fire and Doll Skin.

“This will be a spiritually lawless celebration of art & freedom,” promises the band, who seem mentally ready for battle given the attitude conveyed on the first single, “Lords of War.”

Band leader and frontwoman Otep Shamaya talked to us about touring and said, “The best part of being on the road is playing, seeing our fans and having that spiritual intercourse between my band and the audience is really something amazing. That feeling is indescribable and that’s why we’re so addicted to it. That’s why I’ve been fighting in an industry that’s been cannibalizing itself.”

September Mourning will be supporting their 2015 EP, Volume 1 and will be a perfect sonic fit for the tour, bringing their taste of dark music to the fold. Former Flyleaf singer Lacey Sturm just released her debut record Life Screams and will be joining the tour for a select series of dates seen below. Through Fire represent the only male-fronted group on the trek and will be releasing their debut album later this year on Sumerian Records. Opening each night will be the all-female outfit Doll Skin, a punk tinged group who released their debut EP In Your Face last year.

The Next Section is from the bands official website a February 17th press release

OTEP Unleashes “LORDS OF WAR” via Loudwire

New OTEP Album GENERATION DOOM out April 15th via Napalm Records 

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 will be released April 15th.
LIMITED EDITION Pre-orders for GENERATION DOOM are available NOW in exclusive bundle packages from the webstore HERE!

Better grab yours quick! Select vinyl editions have already sold out!

Today the first song from GENERATION DOOM  is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of Loudwire.  Check out “LORDS OF WAR” by clicking HERE.

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.”

In support of Generation Doom, OTEP will be hitting the road in April on the official GENERATION DOOM TOUR.

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.

More on OTEP:

Originally discovered by Jack and Sharon Osbourne in Los Angeles, she was offered to play Ozzfest as an unsigned band and was the first female fronted band to play the touring festival. She signed with legendary label Capitol Records, without a demo, after only 5 live shows, and strictly on the power of her live performance. OTEP has gone on to record seven studio albums, an EP, and a live album.

 

Nominated by GLAAD for Outstanding Artist Award alongside Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert, she won MTV’s prestigious BEST VIDEO for Music With A Message Award. Singer, writer, activist, she spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2008 on behalf of ROCK THE VOTE. A celebrated spoken-word artist, she appeared on HBO’s DEF POETRY twice, recorded an unreleased spoken-word album and authored three books of poetry. She’s authored a book of short stories titled MOVIES IN MY HEAD and produced and directed an audiobook of one of the stories titled PINEBOX JAKE. Utilizing her incredibly dynamic vocal range she’s also a successful Voice Over Artist appearing in many projects including the award-winning PlayStation video game THE LAST OF US and in feature films including THE HOBBIT: The Battle Of The Five Armies and many others.

 

Her live performance alongside her very talented musicians has been described as a “complete mutiny of the senses”. Combining spoken word with a cathartic range of emotional roars and soft melodies over an equally bedlamite alchemy of masterful music. When asked about her current line up she’s said: “These are the most talented group of musicians I’ve ever worked with. We are a family. These are my brothers in arms. My guitarist Aristotle and I have a spiritual connection on an alchemical level that’s preternaturally conducive to creativity. Along with my amazing drummer Justin Kier, we are a force of nature and resistance fighters. Music is our weapon. They believe in what we’re doing, what we stand for, and have the utmost affection and respect for our fans, The OTEP TRIBE.” Armed with the lethality of master artists, they continue to inspire and crush live shows around the world.

Below is a blurb found RoadrunneR / Blabbermouth — February 4th, 2016

 

OTEP, the band led by singer, poet, illustrator, author and activist Otep Shamaya, will release its seventh studio album, “Generation Doom”, on April 15 via Napalm. The CD was produced by Howard Benson, who has previously worked with such acts as MOTÖRHEAD, PAPA ROACH, THREE DAYS GRACE, FLYLEAF, P.O.D. and HALESTORM.

Commented Shamaya: “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… GENERATION DOOM!”

With 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.

“Generation Doom” track listing:

01. Zero
02. Feeding Frenzy
03. Lords Of War
04. Royals (LORDE cover)
05. In Cold Blood
06. Down
07. God Is A Gun
08. Equal Rights, Equal Lefts
09. No Color
10. Lie
11. Generation Doom
12. On The Shore

Speaking about the current lineup of OTEP, Shamaya said, “These are the most talented group of musicians I’ve ever worked with. We are a family. These are my brothers in arms. My guitarist Aristotle and I have a spiritual connection on an alchemical level that’s preternaturally conducive to creativity. Along with my amazing drummer Justin Kier and bassist Corey Wolford, we are a force of nature and resistance fighters. Music is our weapon. They believe in what we’re doing, what we stand for, and have the utmost affection and respect for our fans, the OTEP tribe.”

OTEP’s sixth full-length studio album, “Hydra”, sold around 2,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 155 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was issued in January 2013 via Victory Records.

OTEP was formed in Los Angeles in 2000 and immediately signed to Capitol Records, an achievement based solely on the strength of its live performance. They were selected to appear at Ozzfest after Sharon Osbourne witnessed one of these incendiary performances. Their debut at Ozzfest was only their ninth live show, a major achievement for any band. It would be the kick-off for a career spanning 15 years.

Since there are 110,000 Metal heavy metal bands to write about, 110,000 hard rock bands to write about, and 110,000 avant-garde albums to write about. You may wonder why, this album review has a rushed priority.

Because Otep Shamaya has a #1 World-Wide Ranking as the Greatest NuMetal Vocalist of all-time….!!!!!
