OTEP INTERVIEW ( HEAVY METAL GROUP )
Otep Shamaya Q&A
WHAT HEAVY METAL GROUPS DID YOU GROW UP LISTING TOO?
- Tool, Pantera, Alice in Chains, Slayer, Korn, Metallica, Slayer
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE HEAVY METAL T-SHIRT?
- Black Sabbath
DO YOU THINK HEAVY METAL AND HORROR MOVIES GO HAND AND HAND?
- Absolutely. Both radiate emotional intensity.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HORROR MOVIE?
- The Shining
WAS IF DIFFICULT FILMING THE “FISTS FALL” MUSIC VIDEO?
- Not at all. It was thrilling.
WHAT TRACK FROM SOUNDS LIKE ARMAGEDDAN DO YOU JUST LOVE TO PLAY LIVE?
- All of them but My Confession might edge out the rest.
IF YOU COULD DO THE SOUNDTRACK TO ANY HORROR MOVIE, WHAT MOVIE WOULD IT BE?
- Jacobs Ladder
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE VENUE TO PLAY?
- There's so many but honestly it's not the venue that makes the shows amazing, it's the audience.
ANY “HORROR” STORIES FROM THE ROAD THAT YOU CARE OF SHARE?
- There's a venue in Milwaukee called The Rave (opened in 1927) that is across the street from where Jeffrey Dahmer lived. The venue is an old opera house and meeting place for a secretive organization called The Eagles which (to my understanding) were like Masons for the entertainment industry. There's a derelict pool in the basement, steam room etc, and if you're very quiet, you can sometimes hear the pitter pat of tiny wet footsteps of a little girl who drowned in that pool. Sometimes she giggles. It's spooky.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR OTEP?
- World Domination.
