AllMusic Review by Gregory Heaney
On what's been announced as the band's last splash, Otep go out in a furious blaze on their sixth and final album, Hydra. With heavier guitars and sinister, off-putting electronics, it feels as though the bandmembers are using their final outing to expand their sound in some new directions, oftentimes transcending the nu-metal leanings they have traditionally worked in. The most static element of the band's sound, the vocals of Otep Shamaya herself, remain as emotionally charged as ever as they shine a truthful light on the darker corners of the human experience. While the absence of Otep's music and message will certainly be missed, Hydra finds the band going out at the top of its creative game, a small consolation that hopefully softens the blow caused by the group's departure.
