Otep - Upcoming Album Details Unveiled


Otep are back with a new album. They are about to unveil "their most uncompromising, candid, all-inclusive and controversial assessment of the current residing political regime" that they have ever released in the form of their eighth full-length album, aptly titled Kult 45. On July 27th 2018, Kult 45 drops via Napalm Records.

"You can expect a complete and total mutiny of the senses on Kult 45," says mastermind Shamaya. "That said, it's important for fans to know that this record is not just an indictment of Trump. The idea is rather to empower people to stand up and remind them this is our country and we have the power. It's primarily a rallying cry for people with common sense and good-natured patriots to rise up and know that we own this nation."

"Although the album is produced well technically, lyrically, it's very raw. Musically, we explore different genres - we're trying to reach everyone. I don't want to be limited to one genre or to be anchored to a particular space where I can only reach certain political minds. It's important to me that I'm sending a clear and concise message to the Resistance - the people out there bending the barricades and fighting for justice is this country."

Kult 45 was recorded at The Lair in Los Angeles, completely utilizing the same equipment used for Otep's first album, Sevas Tra (down to Shamaya's vocal microphone, a SHURE Beta 58), in order to create a sound reminiscent of their roots. Otep was self-produced by the band, with assistant engineering from Larry Goetz, Nicolas Schilke and Lizzy Ostro.

Shamaya explains that Kult 45 is the most authentic album Otep has ever released, at least since their first record, and self-producing it helped achieve this result. "We had the freedom to be able to write, record and exist within the songs on Kult 45. Things needed to be said and songs needed to be written that reflect the times. We weren't under anyone else's agenda, there was no pressure to create a 'single' or a song for radio, and the band was really able to shine."





Tracks:

01. Hail To The Thief
02. Halt Right
03. Molotov
04. Said The Snake
05. Undefeated
06. Trigger Warning
07. Cross Contamination
08. Shelter In Place

10. To The Gallows

12. Invisible People
13. Be Brave
14. Wake Up (Rage Against The Machine cover)
15. Feral Oracle (Bonus Track)
16. The Tribe Speaks (Bonus Track)

The band will go out on a headline tour supporting the new album, beginning July 5th in Las Vegas, NV at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The tour will run for nearly a month and a half, coming to an end in Ventura, CA on August 18th.

Gee, how original. Sounds pretentious as fuck.

All political gibberish aside, this band has always sucked, and this will likely suck, as well.

Haha, that's like saying "compose your own Metal album and upload it here, instead of writing a review of an album". :lol:

It can't be any worse than Ministry's "Antifa." The cringe in that video is insurmountable.
