IATT also known as 'I Am The Trireme' are a band from Pennsylvania that has been featured before in this zine ans plays a progressive mixture of symphonic black metal and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Nomenclature" which will be released in September by Black Lion Records.
Grim black metal screams start off the album before going into a faster direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and symphonic elements are also mixed into the heavier sections of the music.
Clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while spoken word parts can also be heard briefly. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with some semi clean yet rough vocals also being added into some parts of the music as well as the songs also mixing in a good amount of growls and melodic death emtal elements and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and a couple of the tracks are instrumentals. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mysticism and the dark nature surrounding primitive medicine circa 1700.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from IATT and if you are a f an of symphonic black metal and progressive and melodic death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cor Pulmonale" "Molyneuxs Problem" "Yersenia Pestis" and "Arsenic Ways". 8 out of 10.
