TALES FROM THE LOTUS PAD stands to prove the power of an underground movement. The circus-makeup rap-metal outfit Insane Clown Posse has a rabid following who immediately embraced this offshoot release without the benefit of any kind of promotional campaign whatsoever. In the grand old word-of-mouth tradition, ICP fans (who refer to themselves as Juggalos) rallied together to push Dark Lotus's album onto the Billboard charts, taking the benighted record industry (this is strictly an indie release) by storm. While those who are expecting Insane Clown Posse Part Two from these guys will get something a bit different from what they bargained for, the overwhelming Juggalo response to Dark Lotus is proof positive that ICP fans should certainly be able to relate to the group and their music.
