Otep seems like the type of artist that’s either very much loved or absolutely hated by people – not much in-between. If you picked up Generation Doom in 2016, then you know the song “Equal Rights, Equal Lefts” isn’t really all that heavy up until the end, but the video’s pretty provocative when it comes to pairing the lyrics with images.
Plus, the video is all about equality, which is fantastic! Check it out above, though I’m warning you this probably falls under the NSFW category.
Norma Jean‘s new album Polar Similar is out now, and it’s a total rager. Though if you want to feel exactly how the band wants you to feel about its music, you really ought to check out the discolored, cold, and angry video for “1,000,000 Watts” above.
Then of course, get a copy of Polar Similar here.

Within The Ruins‘ new album Halfway Human is out today via eOne Music, though if you watch the new video for “Objective Reality” enough, you’re going to have a pretty difficult time getting in your car and going to your local record store to pick it up. Maybe you should just pick it up digitally here instead?
