Related Acts:Horrorcore supergroup consisting of Psychopathic Records' Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid and Blaze Ya Dead Homie. Dark Lotus' lyrics revolve around the occult, the supernatural, murder and insanity. In other words, they're a Darker and Edgier variant on the Psychopathic artists' normal lyrical content, although these artists were pretty grim to begin with.The group originally consisted solely of ICP and Twiztid; their first single, "Echo Side", debuted on ICP's The Amazing Jeckel Brothers; Blaze Ya Dead Homie was added to the line-up and it was announced that a sixth member was yet to be revealed. It was Esham, who had signed to Psychopathic, and planned to release a solo album with the label during this time, but he left following a disagreement with the label, and his position in Dark Lotus was first filled by professional wrestler Vampiro, who unlike Esham, actually recorded a song for the group, and then Marz (Zlatko Hukic), a former guitarist for Ministry and current solo Rap Metal artist (who nowadays is minus the metal). Conflict between Marz and Violent J eventually led to Marz being booted out of the group, and being replaced by Anybody Killa. Reactions from Juggalos was less than favorable, as Dark Lotus fans preferred Marz' ultra-messed up raps and harsh delivery. Of course, opposition to ABK's presence in the group would not have been as strong if Violent J had not decided to pull the original version of Tales from the Lotus Pod from stores and replace it with a George Lucas Altered Version that contained new ABK vocals and a Take That towards Marz.After Anybody Killa left Psychopathic, it was decided to retain a permanent five-member line-up, and Dark Lotus released what some consider to be their Magnum Opus: The Opaque Brotherhood.
