I'm glad you have discovered the musings of OTEP...now you must experience a ritual, so you must attend a show.

There's a few translations I have read in books in the past for SHA NAGBA IMURRU...'the one who saw all' as Cornpico said, or also 'the one who experienced all'.

You will find that Otep uses alot of latin and symbolism in songs.

'SHA NAGBA IMURU' is sumerian ... and its from the epic of gilgamesh ... which is quite a story.

"the one who saw/experienced all". i imagine there's a story behind them all.

I'd like to know more about it, if anyone has some info.
But then again, if everything has a story behind it, it makes it so hard to understand the whole picture of the Art.
