Denmark's Iotunn combine elements of progressive and space rock with the grandiosity of modern black metal. Their music conjures images of other worlds in line with their progressive aspirations.

I spoke with guitarist Jens Nicolai Gräs about how Iotunn grew out of a love of classic prog, and why they decided to scrap their first album and focus on writing heavier music. We also discussed the writing and recording of their debut full-length Access All Worlds, and the larger cosmic questions that drive the band.

My thanks to Jens for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
