OTEP Frontwoman Talks Vegetarianism, Cruelty To Animals; Video Available

A two-minute video clip of OTEP's vegetarian frontwoman Otep Shamaya talking about vegetarianism, cruelty to animals, and speaking up for animals can be viewed below.

Otep is a budding vegetarian and very educated when it comes to all areas of animal rights. She even mentioned that PETA videos and literature influenced her decision to adopt her new vegetarian diet. Otep says, "If we're going to kill things to eat for our own sustenance, we should at least treat them like the heroes they are instead of the victims they become."

According to Otep, the band's music can be described as, "The hopes of countless souls burning, yearning for emancipation."
