Otep
Otep
Otep got their start in late 2000, when singer/band namesake Otep Shamaya brought her Marilyn Manson-meets-Kim Gordon style of singing to a crew of musicians known only as Rob, Moke, and eViL j. The foursome began gigging around Los Angeles and scored a deal with Capitol solely on the strength of their live show (they'd not yet recorded a demo), releasing the Jihad EP the following year. Rumors of cannibalism and dabbling in the mystical arts helped add to their mysterious image, and they found themselves being complimented by the likes of Marilyn Manson himself for their antics. Their eighth live show ever was at 2001's Ozzfest, and Otep stepped back into the studio with Terry Date at the tail end of the year to record their full-length debut, Sevas Tra, which saw the light of day in the summer of 2002. That summer they again joined up with the Ozzfest tour, gaining a prime spot on the second stage. In 2004 the group released its sophomore effort, House of Secrets. Working with producer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne), Otep followed up three years later with The_Ascension and supported it on spring 2007 dates with Static-X.

One Day Waiting
One Day Waiting is an alternative metal band from the Hudson Valley NY. The band was established in 2013 and is comprised of 4 equally dedicated members who maintain a fusion of the melody of rock music with the intensity of metal.

The lead vocalist is Tyler Kray. He's been listening to rock / metal since 2005 and first started to perform in bands by 2011. Inspired by bands like Disturbed and Drowning Pool, he incorporates a heavy singing style with clean and raspy vocals along with harsh screams. He is also responsible for writing the majority of ODW's lyrics.

Nick Cozzolino, the guitarist, was turned onto rock music at the age of 10. Going to his first concert, not knowing anything about rock music, he saw Shinedown and Trapt perform. It was then that he knew that's what he wanted to for the rest of his life. He started playing guitar at age 11 and has been in and out of bands since 2010. ODW is the right fit he has been looking for. His roots are southern rock, hard rock and alternative metal.

The bassist of the band is Connor Koch. He has been listening to all types of music ever since he was a kid and has always had a passion for playing and performing. With a wide range of influences from Paul McCartney to Steve Harris to John Entwistle to Johnny Christ, Connor incorporates hard, punchy finger picking technique and elegant high end fills along with a deep bottom end to solidify the band.

John Zambito began playing the drums at age 5 and was brought up listening to hard rock/metal music. Main influences on his playing style are Lamb of God, Disturbed, Pantera, Metallica, A7X, Trivium, and Korn. John delivers a style of drumming that revolves around a syncopated double bass foot technique along with the incorporation of tribal drum beats, crafting a unique, tight, and punchy sound. John also aids in the lyric writing process.

One Day Waiting continues to grow as time progresses. They bring the frantic raw energy at their concerts that empowers the audience to listen and feel their music. As of 2015, they have played in 4 different states and have released two EP's.
