Ẁurdah Ïtah is a 1974 album by Magma/Christian Vander.

The album was recorded by a core quartet of Magma members (only consisting of drums, bass, piano, and vocals[3]). Initially released under Vander's name as a soundtrack studio album[1] for Yvan Lagrange's 1972 avant-garde film Tristan et Iseult,[4] it was re-released on Magma's label Seventh Records in 1989 with the Magma logo on its cover, and is generally regarded as a Magma album.[5][6][7]

Ẁurdah Ïtah (which translates from Kobaïan roughly as Dead Earth) is the second part of the Theusz Hamtaahk Trilogy. It is preceded by Theusz Hamtaahk (Time of Hatred), which is only available on live albums, including Retrospektïẁ (Parts I+II) (1981), and Trilogie Theusz Hamtaahk (Concert du Trianon) (2001), and succeeded by Mëkanïk Dëstruktïẁ Kömmandöh (1973).
