What a epic album.

Some old school OTEP style music with some new twists, great lyrics and melody's. There are OTEPs usual intro's and meaningful ranting and some dam catchy tunes.

OTEP are one of my favourite bands, I cant really compare them to any other as they are so unique, but if you listen to In this Moment, Within Temptation, night wish, killswitch engage, korn, evancesce you are bound to like this.

There is a CD+DVD album available, which is well worth the extra money. Including some exciting music videos of OTEP and some commentary from OTEP Shamaya and band.

Overall this album is another success, as good as if not better than OTEP Smash the control machine & OTEP Ascension.

Atavist 28 April 2011
By A. J. Campa - Published on
Format: Audio CD
One word to describe this album? Intense. This album was heavily anticipated by all Otep fans, and was I worried about it not living up to the other Otep albums? No, because so far, everything that Otep has released is golden. When hearing "Fists Fall", I knew Otep would be giving us something along the lines of "Smash the Control Machine" BUT heavier than "The Ascension". "Fists Fall" didn't disappoint me one bit, but it's nothing compared to the rest of the album. The intro "Atavist Animus" is classical Otep whispers that remind any fan of "Requiem", good short intro to the most intense song on the album, "Atom to Adam". "Atom to Adam" doesn't cease to blow me away, yet, disturb me at the same time. This song hits HARD and is one of my favorites on the album, great opening. "Drunk On the Blood of Saints" is another personal favorite, and it hits just as hard as the previous track. Oteps growl when singing "Drunk On the Blood of Saints" is an easy way to get the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up. "Remember to Forget" is another good track, catchy chorus with very emotional screams by the beautiful Otep. "Skin of the Master" is a good one as well, somewhat soft verses but the chorus are HEAVY. The only real soft song (in a sense of being a ballad) is "We Dream Like Lions". Soft songs don't bother me, especially when they're done WELL, like Otep. I think she always makes great ballads that appeared on the previous albums, "We Dream Like Lions" is just as good. Looking for poetic Otep, growls, whispers with scary and haunting noises as background? Listen to "Baby's Breath", beautifully and hauntingly spoken words by Otep.

All in all, this album DOES NOT disappoint. I'd recommend buying the deluxe CD/DVD version rather than the standard version. The packaging that comes with the deluxe version is AMAZING and VERY impressive for a band that doesn't have as much money as, say, any wealthy and popular musician. This has got to be the best packaging I've seen with any album I've ever bought. The deluxe version includes a DVD that has three music videos (Rise, Rebel, Resist/Smash the Control Machine/Run for Cover), a video where Otep talks about the recording process and what each and every song on this album is about, a short film called "Baby's Breath", and a video called "Alchemy & Atavism", which is a slideshow of the album art. The deluxe edition ALSO includes a fold-out poster! Buy it!

I have all of Otep's albums. This album is pounding and rarely lets up, and that's what I like about it. I could probably do without the horror story component (Number 8, Baby's Breathe). It's not a song, rather a blip from a horror graphic novel she's working on. It's not really my cup of tea (not a fan of horror), but I know there are plenty of folks who might dig it. The rest of the album I thoroughly enjoy. It's great to listen to when you want to get pumped up and filled with that lion roaring kind of energy. It'll put some fire in your veins, for sure.

I love Otep, this is a nice album, some songs are okay but will take time to enjoy as much as the others. I bought this because of one to two songs but have grown to like the majority of them. Looking forward to more music.
Good But Not Great 22 Jan. 2013
By Mitchell - Published on
Format: Audio CD
First Off Let Me Say This, I Love Otep. The First Four Albums Were Amazing...This Album Atavist Is Good But Not Great. The Songs Are Heavy, And Good. In My Opinion Nothing Beats House Of Secrets. The Biggest Songs That Stick Out Are Adam To Atom, Drunk On The Blood Of Saints, We Dream Like Lions And Stay Away. Fists Fall Is Good Too. So It's Kinda Of A Win Lose Situation. Some Of The Album Is Good, The Other Half Is Not So Much. Any Otep Fan Should Buy It But If You Are Just Starting Into Otep, Purchase The Older Ones First. There's A New Album Coming Out Tomorrow Called Hydra. It's Their Six And Final Album. Honestly I Pray It's Better Than Atavist. Well Just Have To Wait And See. Anyway Otep Rules! :)
