An astral full-length with an apt depiction by Eliran Kantor.
From worlds beyond come IOTUNN to release Access All Worlds, an illustrious full-length debut of varied songcraft and cosmic storytelling. Arriving on February 26th via Metal Blade Records, Access All Worlds finds the Denmark-based unit revisiting their artistic partnership with the acclaimed Eliran Kantor, who illustrated the cover for the band's 2016 EP, The Wizard Falls. Like its predecessor, Access All Worlds is as musically stunning as it is visually, brimming with electrifying solos and grandiose atmospheres that traverse reflective lyricism.
Guitarist Jens Nicolai comments on the record:
"We wanted to make an epic, strong and atmospheric yet rocking record both musically and lyrically. Jón came with the idea based on space travelers trying to find answers to the apocalypse, which reflects many of the impressions, feelings and thoughts human life holds that originates from something vast, mysterious, chaotic and breathtakingly spectacular. Everything just went berserk regarding the album theme. Is everything occurring in the lyrics just a dream? Is the album an allegory for any individual's chapters in life? Where does the album actually start and end? Stuff like that. We find that the album can be interpreted in various ways. For us, the album is a truly exciting journey, and we hope it will be for the listener as well, on his or her own terms."
