I got my first Otep cd over 10 years ago, and over 10 years later they havent lost their potentcy. The Ascension is an album thats highly infused with emotion, politics, and that make you want to get of the couch and do something. Like a more upto date heavier and more aggresive version of "RATM" in many senses.
A good mix of heavy and relatively lighter tracks that most people will be able to appreciate.
Essential tracks include "Eet The Children", "Confrontation" and "March Of The Martyrs"
and then theres the lighter songs such "Perfectly Flawed", "Ghostflowers" which are equally as good.
Looking forward to their future release "Atavist"

To be honest we thought it was going to be an album that had a song on it we had wanted to get, it wasn't, but wow it was great buy! We listen to it a lot of the time. The price is great for the amount of songs you get. Each of them full and rich in metallness. I will be buying more Otep cds in the future

It's a testament to bands like Otep that they are still going at all. They first came flying into the nu-metal scene around 2004 when the whole genre was starting to fizzle out. Korn members started to find Jesus, the novelty value of Slipknot gradually wore off and Fred Durst became, well, not very interesting anymore. Otep, whilst admittedly never reaching the dizzy heights that their contemporaries did, always had that something different with their strong front lady Otep (yes, the band is named after the vocalist) Shamaya

Fast-forward to 2007 and the band are back with `The Ascension'. They have adopted a much more experimental sound but the rap-influenced and Coal Chamber-esque whispered vocals, so often seen throughout nu-metal, remain prevalent. On the whole Shamaya's vocals are a treat to listen to, but sadly the same cannot always be said for the instrumentation. Many of the riffs are uninspired and at times the songs just don't go anywhere. For example, first track proper `Crooked Spoons' starts with an interesting enough riff but when it is repeated time after time throughout the track, it starts to become a tad stale.

To Otep's credit it's certainly not all doom and gloom. The aforementioned experimental side makes for some interesting listening and bodes well with Shamaya's various vocal styles. `Ghostflowers' for instance is a stormer of a track, switching between ambience, searing metal and some ridiculously funky bass lines rather eloquently.

`The Ascension' isn't a bad record and Otep do have a lot going for them, but with so much more interesting metal being released lately, this simply isn't good enough.
