Transmaniacon feat. Lydia Lunch and Maya Berlin
The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet

Transmaniacon take their name from a Blue Oyster Cult song and describe themselves as 21st century schizoid people of the blue planet, which references a King Crimson song. It’s clear to see their prog influences, however, the music they make is a heavier brand of prog rock. They have teamed up with Lydia Lunch and Maya Berlin to bring to life The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet in the form a concept album. Suzie Pellet is a character created by horror/fantasy artist and novelist, Ian Miller. Transparent green/mustard half and half vinyl, limited to 300 copies of CD on New Heavy Sounds.

The Darkening Plain

Transmaniacon were initially a collective of musicians assembled to provide the score for a film of John Shirley's book 'Transmaniacon', also drawing inspiration from Blue Oyster Cult's 'Transmaniacon MC'. The film ended up being canned, but the musicians continued on to make this pummelling sci-fi concept album from its discarded remains. It's a hard, slow stoner-prog monolith full of twist, turns, dystopian paranoia and huge doomy riffs, mixing the classic hard-rock/proto-metal of bands like Steppenwolf, Cathedral, Alice Cooper and Black Sabbath with a thick modern stoner sound a la Sleep.
