Progressive blackened extremists IATT (formerly I Am the Trireme; now pronounced “eye at”) have finally unleashed their awaited sophomore album, Nomenclature,today via Black Lion Records. The album delves into the themes of mysticism and the dark nature surrounding primitive medicine circa 1700.
Labeling IATT as the “Philly’s best kept secret,” Decibel Magazine is currently streaming the entire album.
The band inform:
“We’ve really pushed ourselves with the album. We dug deep with Nomenclature to create a unique, cohesive album that reflects the evolution of IATT and our trajectory. We challenged ourselves compositionally and feel we’ve come out the other end of this album as better musicians and a tighter unit; expanding in some areas, growing and maturing in familiar ones, and focusing in on what makes us IATT with scalpel-like precision.”

Upon their formation in 2008, IATT quickly began to heave their mass out of the dark abyss and shape themselves into a great leviathan in the world of extreme metal alongside acts such as Rotting Christ, Goatwhore, Suffocation, Exhumed, and literally countless other heavy hitters in the extreme metal community
While never claiming to be strictly black metal, the band hold strong to belief of black metal in its purest form – unencumbered and in direct opposition of ALL religious ties and affiliations. In a time where ideals and strong beliefs have shifted into trends and thoughtless practices, leaving the scene littered with hollow shells in the image of the forefathers; the Philly based ensemble set a course true to their convictions and shines an unapologetic ghostly light through the fog into the beyond.
Now in the current landscape of extreme metal, IATT have fixated their eye on progression and pushing the boundaries of their sound; delivering a dynamic, aggressive flurry of darkness and grandeur… With their impending sophomore album Nomenclature, Blackened Progressive Extremists IATT usher in a new era. Tales of horror surrounding ghastly practices, diseases mistaken for malevolent forces, and the terrors of crude medicine set the stage for an auditory onslaught, sculpted with scalpel-like precision.
