IATT is pleased to once again team up with Black Lion Records for the follow up to 2019’s “Nomenclature”; the new full-length album entitled “Magnum Opus”.
Meticulously crafted to pick up thematically where its predecessor left off, the listener is catapulted from the 1700s (Arsenic Ways) further back in time to a much darker, older world and the esoteric sciences of Alchemy. It was in this time man aimed to harness the world around him, bending the natural elements in a quest to obtain power, knowledge, control, and even immortality itself. Alchemy was the key to unlocking the secrets of existence and elevating one’s self to the pinnacle of enlightenment through transmutation and manipulation of the earthly elements. It was only through the process of Magnum Opus (the great work) that alchemists could harness the elementals in their purest form to create the Philosopher’s Stone – the key to power, enlightenment, and immortality.
Just as in alchemy itself, creating this album has been a journey of transformation; a period of great growth as individuals and as a unit. It’s through adversity, struggles, and the forging of the elements – of literal blood, sweat, and tears – IATT strive to transcend and elevate to their highest self, “the great work”, “Magnum Opus”.
The band comments:
“We are excited to unveil the culmination of all our hard work and present a new exciting chapter in IATT’s story. Magnum Opus is an album of discovery; both in terms for us as writers as well as for listeners who seek to unravel the saga we present.”
