Cyanotic defines harsh electronic rock, melding elements of electro, drum 'n' bass, glitch, metal and dystopic cinema to create a unique sonic assault.
The band enjoys a rapidly growing fan base, thanks to strong word of mouth and a reputation for high energy live performances, playing alongside acts like Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Meat Beat Manifesto, Everytime I Die, Andrew W.K., Stromkern, Dismantled, Acumen Nation, DJ? Acucrack, Bile, Nocturne and many more.
Cyanotic had its beginnings in the midi ghettos of the midwest US in early 2002. The band's first release, a collection of demos and remixes entitled "Mutual Bonding Through Violation", saw release in the summer 2k3 via Cyanotic's own label, Glitch Mode Recordings. The limited edition E.P. of 1200 copies, now out of print, was met with immediate praise and extremely positive reviews. Subsequent tours of the United States began shortly after, with the band recording and producing between shows.
The summer of 2k5 saw the release of Cyanotic's debut full length album, "Transhuman". A harsh electro-metal diatribe combining aggro punk attitude, machine driven beats, infectious synth rhythms, brutal guitars and layers of sonic experimentation. The album became an underground hit thanks to strong word of mouth, positive reviews, relentless touring and an ever-growing fanbase.
Due to popular demand, Cyanotic began work on a deluxe reissue of the out-of-print debut in fall 2k6. "Transhuman 2.0" is a double CD set which contains a companion disc that fully deconstructs and reshapes the original album into pure sonic molotov, featuring guest appearances from members of Front Line Assembly, 16 Volt, mindFluxFuneral and Rabbit Junk.
Having recently signed to the upstart electronic Bit Riot Records (a sub-label of WTII Records) and wrapping up a successful headlining US tour with fellow labelmates mindFluxFuneral, Cyanotic is now poised to claim its place amongst the stalwarts of the heavy electronic music scene.
Amongst all the shows, promotion and recording, the group have completed production work and remixes for bands including Pigface, Chemlab, 16 Volt, Acumen Nation, Rabbit Junk, See Colin Slash and many more.
