  • I’ve been a die-hard Otep fan since the day I picked up the jihad ep and so I was right in line to pick up “House of Secrets”. I’ve got to admit it, I was a little dissappointed the first few times through it.
    I put it down for a while and then a week or so later, I picked it up again and started listening to it. It still is a classic like the other Otep releases, it just comes from a different place.
    The first ep and album came from a dark place in the past and talked about raging against these haunting demons from the past, and with her superb talent, the releases were filled with just that. This album is more about stopping demons that could come about. It’s political in some ways, as I’m sure you heard.
    It is a hell of alot heavier than the other releases, the vocals are not rap-influenced poetry anymore, they are screams, bellows, and other sounds like a normal metal band. This record is alot more straight ahead metal than the others.
    Joey Jordison from Slipknot did the drum tracking for most of the album, so it can be pretty intense. Filled with angry, ferocious songs that should keep people talking about Otep until the next record.
    If you love Otep, you’ll love this one too. If you don’t like Otep (I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t)this is a huge difference from their other stuff, so you owe it to yourself to check it out.
