Being an old guy, I had never heard Otep before. However, a local newspaper reviewer had provided so many positive comments regarding Otep that I asked her to loan me some music from Otep, and Jihad was one of two that she gave to me.
At first I was put off by the music. However, when you listen to music so far off from what you usually listen to, that is often the case. I listened to Jihad four or five times, and then read the lyrics. The principal thing that Otep Shamaya does that is different from other female singers is her growly, screamy singing. She reminds me somewhat of the "primal scream" technique that some metal groups liked to incorporate in their music back in the dark ages of metal. The growls and screams put me off a bit, because she does seem to rely on them a bit much. However, I read her lyrics, and listened and listened to give Otep the fairest review possible.
Who is Otep most like? Not any single group. Her lyrics are dark like some early Black Sabbath, but much more graphic. The complexity of her lyrics is reminds me of groups like Spock's Beard and some of The Moody Blues more challenging lyrics, though of course her lyrics are about the deeper, darker aspects of life. She throws in elements of rap, but she is not a rap singer. Neither would I really call her a gothic singer, because her lyrics and style do not really feel goth to me, they are too modern. So that leaves me without a real comparison.
While Otep will not be on my list of favorite singers, because her current style is out of my usual range, I appreciate that she is creating to please herself, and not any particular person. The third cut on this album, "Germ", is really interesting.

Let me just start out with: I hate the metal genre these days. Not because of the rap factor, but because it's become complacent. Now, I will admit, I found certain parts of Linkin Park and Papa Roach sincere when I saw them at the Ozzfest. But, it's not consistent, it's not one bleeding work of emotion and expression. Most people have the violent and heavy factor down, but it sounds hollow. This is what I call Pop-metal. Otep is a step beyond that. They've taken a female singer and thrust her through the hordes of male singers that are "normal." She has to be extraordinary to even become noticed in today's music. And she is that. She's today's Janis Joplin, and the same "she sings with more balls than most of the male singers out there" comment can be applied to her. Otep's style looks promising IF they develop it. They're style resembles Morbid Angel with a spark of the rhythms of Slipknot, while the vocals are varied (rap, metal, etc). The crucial factor for their future is: whether they evolve or not. I have to say though; I find them significantly more ear pleasing than Kittie.

I am a huge fan of Otep i bought Sevas Tra and fell in love with the cd and i went to write my online review of it and say this site had there EP Jihad so i bought this cd and am in love with this cd also. Even though 4 out of 5 songs on this EP are on Sevas Tra i bought it anyways being a big fan of there's and i have to say the songs on this EP are a little diffrent then the sounds on there full length album butt still kick major ... They have another Guitar on this album so the beats to the songs are a little diffrent and Otep herself has a diffrent pitch and scream on this EP and i noticed there's a couple not many lyrics changes on this and there full length album. I strongly recommend picking up this cd as well and there Sevas Tra album you won't be disappointed.

I first heard about this band in April 2001 when i looked at a list of the bands for Ozzfest. I had heard Possesion then forgot about them until June when I was browsing [local store] and found this EP. Eager to hear more i bought,went home, put it in the cd player and was amazed! Their guitars and vocals are amazing Otep's voice reminds me of Kittie but deeper and scary. Too bad she fired her two guitarists late last year. I think their new guitarist used to play for the ... band Puddle of Mudd. They are performing on the first half of OZZfest this year and the full length album comes out this May. If you like bands like Kittie,Korn or anything very heavy and scary give Otep a listen. You will become a avid fan immediatly

I like a lot of Nu-Metal, but some of it seems repetitive. Otep restores the heavy and the anger to Nu-Metal, and best of all, they do it with a female singer. I saw Otep at an Ozzfest offdate this year and it was my first serving of them. Awesome show. Definatly one of the better preformances at that show. Otep (the singer's name) had a better scream than most of male singer's at that show. This woman's scream is beasty and brutal. After that show I went home and Amazon happened to carry their Jihad EP. I ordered it and it was not a disappointment. The CD matches their heaviness live. Order this EP now, it's inexpensive and it rocks. I can't wait for a whole album to come out in 2002. Best song: "Filthee."
