“Angelus Pestis”, the second LOTAN EP, is out today on all digital platforms. The five-track release has been getting quite good reactions from the press and it’s a good development since the band’s debut release, “Nihil sacrum”, out earlier this year.
Lotan stands for “Leviathan” – the seven-headed dragon and the origin of chaos who began a war against the cosmic order and gods. Lotan is a raw melodic black metal band from Denmark. Formed by Phillip Kaaber (Vanir) and Martin Rubini (Vanir), and joined by live members; Lasse Guldbæk (Abscission, Vanir) and Jon Schmidt (Northfall).
Lotan has released their critically acclaimed EP “Nihil Sacrum” in January 2021. And are now getting ready for yet another fierce release, entitled “Angelus Pestis”. Lotan’s lyrical universe is inspired by a mix between satanic spiritualism and existentialism. The music is melodic, heavy, and aggressive.
Kill your masters – kill your god.
