The band formed in the fall of 2000 in California. After performing area shows, Sharon Osbourne saw the band and was impressed enough to offer OTEP a spot for the Ozzfest 2001 tour. During this time, the band was unsigned, but had several showcases for labels lined up. Capitol Records was intrigued by OTEP and asked them to perform another showcase and soon was signed with them. Their first album for Capitol was 2002's Sevas Tra.
For their second album, House of Secrets, the band decided to hire producer Greg Wells, who recently worked with The Deftones.
In November 2006, OTEP began a North American tour to promote their new album, titled "The Ascension."
