LOTAN (Leviathan) – The seven-headed dragon and the origin of chaos who began a war against the cosmic order and gods of Mesopotamia. Lotan is a black metal act from Denmark that mixes melodic black metal and black’n’roll with an aggressive overtone. Formed by Phillip Kaaber and Martin Rubini (both members of the renowned Danish Viking metal act Vanir), and joined by Lasse Guldbæk, Andy Dragsberg, and Jon Schmidt.
Lotan released two critically acclaimed EPs Nihil Sacrum and Angelus pestis in 2020 and 2021. And are now getting ready for yet another fierce release. This time it’s a full-length album Lotan that will be released via UPRISING! Records in early 2023. The album follows the same path as the EPs and draws its lyrical universe from a mix between satanic spiritualism, Mesopotamian myths, and existential philosophy.
The dragon has been reborn – Lotan.
“Lotan” will be released on digital and LP (black vinyl, limited to 300 units) via UPRISING! Records on March 31st, 2023. Pre-orders are available here.
Tomorrow, the first advance of the album, “Ignis”, will be released as a digital single and lyric video.
