Otep - Generation Doom mp3 album
The album will be the first to boast new drummer Justin Kier, who joined the band in 2013, playing alongside guitarist Ari Mihalopoulos, who joined in 2011. Frontwoman and band namesake Otep Shamaya is the only original member left in the group and she couldn't be more excited for the release of Generation Doom. Revolution is the opiate of the artist. But healed in the sweet addiction to art. We are," said the singer
Released April 15, 2016. Generation Doom Tracklist. 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.
Generation Doom is a welcome return by Otep. Having struck out as a musician on a whim in 2000 after seeing a lame band perform at a festival - ‘If they can be that terrible. I can be that terrible,’ she remembers thinking - she announced her retirement from recording after 2013's Hydra due to burnout. Album title Generation Doom refers to the possible annihilation of mankind. This nihilism is part and parcel of Otep's oeuvre, but the title also insinuates the possibility that the course can be righted. We are at a place now where we can either forever go backward and maybe we will never get back up again, or we can continue to move forward and truly fix this planet that we live on, says Otep. So it's our choice whether we will be Generation Doom, meaning we will be doomed, or we will be the doom of those plotting our doom. We are the generation that can change everything.
The album's earliest moments are also its most brutal, with Shamaya's politically and socially charged lyrics delivered with Gatling-gun ferocity over an equally vitriolic nu-tech-metal foundation - Shamaya's newly adopted climate change/Mad Max-inspired Imperator Furiosa guise, which adorns the cover, adds even more fuel to the fire.
