While Otep's unique convergence of socially conscious poetry and nu-metal has always had a visceral quality, the live version has been a whole other experience. With Sounds Like Armageddon, fans can finally get a taste of the band's volatile live presence, putting listeners right in the middle of the pit with an 11-song set. Though Otep devotees will no doubt already be familiar with most of the set list, the album's finale, a cover of Nirvana's "Breed," serves as a nice bonus for anyone looking for something a little different.
