hatbanger_ollie May has been a glorious month for black metal with no less than TWO possible AOTY albums seeing its release on the very same day! (this one and SISYPHEAN). The saxophone parts really turn this into an instant masterpiece! Favorite track: Planes of Our Existence.
Hayduke X

Hayduke X Magnum Opus is an absolute masterpiece of progressive black metal (with sprinklings of death metal thrown in for good measure) by one of the best bands in this style. IATT triumph once again. Favorite track: Demiurgos (Architect of Disaster).

A Blaze On The Northern Beaches From start to finish one of the most unique sounding black metal records. I love the different sections within the songs. Great guitar playing and amazing song structuring.
Favorite track: Elixir of Immortality.

Has been on my wishlist long enough, couldn't hold out any longer!

mourner I'm not the biggest fan of album titles like Magnum Opus. But if the shoe fits... This is really a grand release and the way the band has evolved and improved from Nomenclature is breathtaking. This is highly diverse and sophisticated progressive extreme metal with tremendous songwriting skills and full of exceptionally good ideas. But what will come after this Magnum Opus?

about

IATT is pleased to once again team up with Black Lion Records for the follow up to
2019’s Nomenclature; our new full length album entitled Magnum Opus.
We’ve meticulously crafted this album to leap from where Nomenclature left us
thematically. 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
for us; 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 - we
strive to transcend and elevate to our highest selves, “the great work”, Magnum
Opus.
