Swarm of the Lotus is a sludge metal band from Baltimore, Maryland. Explosive. Mammoth. Mayhem. The absolutely crushing wall of sound that is SWARM OF THE LOTUS is a force to be reckoned with. Coupled with the band's fiery determination and passion to pursue their art, they can only move forward in a positive direction and have no other plans but to do just that. Since the band's inception in the city of Baltimore in the Fall of 1998, SOTL has come a long way and is still only at the beginning of their budding career.
