OTEP's EVIL J Talks Shop With Former MEGADETH Bassist; Video Available
Former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, who currently works for Peavey Electronics (manufacturer of musical equipment, gear and accessories) as an artist relations representative, conducted an interview with OTEP bassist Jason "Evil J" McGuire during the band's recent tour. Watch the nine-minute PVTV report below.
OTEP is scheduled to film several shows this month for the band's first-ever DVD.
The group's new album, "The_Ascension", sold 10,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release back in November to debut at position No. 81 on The Billboard 200 chart. Produced by Dave Fortman (MUDVAYNE, EVANESCENCE), "The_Ascension" sees the band challenging itself to avoid clichés and classifications and finding a new landscape of sound and vision. "We said 'genre limits and music fads be damned, let's write music that is important to us and that motivates us," Otep Shamaya previously stated. "I wanted to write songs we believe in and let nothing stop us from building the album we want to make."
