Swarm Of The Lotus

Swarm Of The Lotus

Reptilian 78

Released on May 21, 2004

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

At the intersection of terror and chaos, sheer volume is the crowned king. Swarm of the Lotus is the latest throne-worthy audio beast Reptilian Records has committed to wax or plastic. Drawing justifiable comparisons to heavyweight behemoths such as Neurosis, Mastodon, Godflesh, Today is the Day, and Isis, Swarm of the Lotus clearly shares a table with the best. And one thing Swarm does better than the aforementioned five is bridging itself to the modern hardcore of bands like Converge and Burnt by the Sun as much as to noise rock, distorted sonic expressionism, deafening math mayhem, and pure hammering metal. It ain’t for the weak of spirit. Some songs are the sound of a caravan of boulder-pulling camels across the Sahara (while bombs rain down above), and others are like King Crimson eating acid proffered from the blood-stained palms of the Manson family. Reptilian is of course boastfully proud to have pulled this one from the fires – a three song (“Torrential”, “Ichabod”, “Withered Am I”), limited edition picture disc 7” of exclusive tracks from this devastating Baltimore quartet. Produced by low-end mastermind John Smulyan, the tracks blister like mustard gas on cyclopean infant. With characteristically brutal, cut-and-paste dementia-and-guts artwork from acclaimed fetish photographer Carlos Batts, the envelope has been duly pushed into Hell’s mailbox. Enjoy the feast.
