Otep’s music talks about the dark things that we all try to whisper. Self harm, physical or sexual abuse, suicide. We’re afraid to talk about those things because they’re a frightening reality. Not only does she say them, she screams them. Her voice is unstoppable and has saved many lost souls from feeling so alone.
I liked Emilie Autumn’s album Opheliac better than Fight Like a Girl or Enchant because it’s the exact middle between those two extremes, between the more melodic fairytales of Enchant and the horror-operatic style of FLaG. I hope she’s going to even this out better in her next album.
I miss the Horrorpops.
Their last album up to date was released February 2008, and the last time any big news was heard from them was over a silly doll in 2010.
