Otep - The Ascension [LP] (180 Gram, White Colored Vinyl)

A hard-hitting, multifaceted, female-fronted metal outfit from Los Angeles, California, Otep got their start in late 2000, when singer/band namesake Otep Shamaya brought her Marilyn Manson-meets-Kim Gordon style of singing to a crew of musicians known only as Rob, Moke, and eViL j. The foursome began gigging around Los Angeles and scored a deal with Capitol solely on the strength of their live show (they'd not yet recorded a demo), releasing the Jihad EP the following year. Rumors of cannibalism and dabbling in the mystical arts helped add to their mysterious image, and they found themselves receiving nods of approval from the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson himself for their antics.

In 2004 the group released its sophomore effort, House of Secrets, which introduced elements of funk, hip-hop, and ambient into the group's melting pot of metal. Working with producer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne), Otep followed up three years later with Ascension and supported it on spring 2007 dates with Static-X. In 2016 the band released their seventh studio album ''Generation Doom'' and continue to tour
