COMMENTS

Otep began as a band in Los Angeles, California, in late 2000. The name Otep is from Otep Shamaya's stage name and is an anagram for 'Poet'.

Joey Jordison (Slipknot) appeared on the band's second album 'House Of Secrets' (2004), performing drums on six tracks. There was a rumor at the time that Joey was to produce the album, but this is credited to a Greg Wells.

Members of Des Moines' metal band Destrophy have performed in Otep. Ari Mihalopoulos played guitar from 2011-present, Erik Tisinger was touring bassist from 2011-2013, and Joe Fox was touring drummer in 2011. Also, American Head Charge/F.O.R. guitarist Karma Singh Cheema performed guitar in the band from 2006-2007.
