Transmaniacon’s heavy progressive rock beast is ready to burn ears and fry brains.
New Heavy Sounds is super stoked to bring you the full on, take no prisoners, hard rock sci-fi concept album by Transmaniacon.
‘The Darkening Plain’ Transmaniacon take the blueprint and soundworld laid down by Bloodrock, Mountain, Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult and Alice Cooper, and add a hefty slab of dark doom, hard riffs, punk attitude and stoner metal to ramp it up for the 21st century.
The vibe is steeped in 70’s rock, but the sound is definitely ‘NOW’. Nothing encapsulates the cinematic darkness more than the album opener, which grafts a progressive approach to hard rock and doom.
‘Quintessence of Dust’ is a 24 minute monolithic mindfuck of epic proportions. An intense listen that features the spoken word talents of punk poet Lydia Lunch, and as the album’s opener; it’s also a pretty bold statement of intent.
‘Quintessence Of Dust’ is a grim eco warning, a tale of alien invasion and payback time for a future Earth’s corpulent consumerism, rampant waste and self centred greed.
A hideous flesh and metal robot army, hybrid humans inadvertently created by man himself, invade, take over and consume the Earth.
“Even in the most gruesome horror and far beyond the setting sun.
Everything dies, dust to dust” says Lydia Lunch.
And she’s right.
