The band is celebrating the arrival of Magnum Opus with the official visualizer of album track "Ouroboros." Watch it now at youtu.be/vbHXo7Kmj74 Meticulously crafted to leap from where Nomenclature left off thematically, Magnum Opus catapults the listener from the 1700s (Arsenic Ways) further back in time to a much darker, older world and the esoteric sciences of Alchemy. It was during 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 was a journey of transformation for the band; a period of great growth as individuals and as a unit. Through adversity, struggles, and the forging of the elements - of literal blood, sweat, and tears – IATT strives to transcend and elevate to their collective highest selves, “the great work”, Magnum Opus. The band comments on Magnum Opus: “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 of us as writers as well as for listeners who seek to unravel the saga we present. Magnum Opus is an epic, dynamic saga that takes listeners on a journey of transformation and enlightenment through the lens of esoteric alchemy. The culmination of great discovery and transformation; this collection of songs is our most expressive and meticulously crafted body of work to date” Magnum Opus was produced by Joe Cantamessa and got mixed and mastered by Marcos Cerutti. Cover artwork by Nightjar Illustration (Adam Burke). The album features multiple guest performances by members of Thank You Scientists, Windfaerer, Uada, Shining, Emperor, and Burial In The Sky.
