BLACK LOTUS BIOGRAPHY
Black/Folk Metal drawing inspiration from the bands surroundings on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.BLACK LOTUS GENRES
The music of Black Lotus began as a collection of songs that Lindsay A. Kerr started writing in 2002. By the summer of 2005 it had evolved into a full band, and in December of that year the full length album "Light Subsides" was recorded. The album was released in late 2006 by China's Dying Empylver Productions.
Nick Engwer subsequently took over the bass duties and Christine Apro replaced Dani Hill. Several new songs were created and the recording of the Promo 2007 during the last two days of 2006..
April of the new year brough the band's debut live concert in Victoria BC, accompanied by Sistrenatus and Fauna.
Black Lotus parted ways with Tegan Musser and Christine Apro and welcomed Jason Robertson and Cameron Saunders to its ranks, forming the strongest lineup yet. New music is currently being composed to grace a second album, planned for 2008.
