Lotan (Leviathan) – The seven-headed dragon and the origin of chaos who began a war against the cosmic order and gods. Lotan is a melodic black metal band from Denmark. Formed by Phillip Kaaber (Vanir) and Martin Rubini (Vanir), and joined by live members; Lasse Guldbæk (Abscission, Vanir), Christian haystack (Fall of Pantheon, Ethereal Kingdoms) and Jon Smith (Ethereal Kingdoms).
The first wave of EPs plotted for this year starts now. Lotan’s lyrical universe is inspired by a mix between satanic spiritualism and existentialism. The music is melodic, heavy, and aggressive.
The concept that we as individuals have a true form, a true purpose, or a true meaning dictated by deities or any truth Sayers being divine or political is ridiculous. To become the dragon, we must first break of all chains of gods and men and revolt against the cosmic order. To be free one must truly live and to do that, no god or man can be the subject of our destiny other than ourselves.
Kill your masters – kill your god.
Phillip Kaaber – guitars, bass
