If Otep Shamaya's music still qualifies as metal, it's due more to gratuitous deathcore ogre retching than to riffs. Or maybe it's because she gets mad a lot -- notably at a webcamming pet-torturer in "Voyeur," who she opts to torture herself. More often she recites poetry about "mental sodomy," "celestial incest" and sundry dominatrix fetishes in a breathy Marilyn Manson whisper-to-scream, over synthesized drippings and, in "Seduce & Destroy," quasi-Middle-Eastern tones. Later she halfway nods to very early Patti Smith and (in the cutely bubble-rapped "Apex Predator") Blondie's "X Offender."
