Cyanotic defines aggressive electronic rock, melding elements of Coldwave, drum 'n' bass, Digital Hardcore, IDM and heavy metal to create a unique sonic assault. The band enjoys a rapidly growing fan base, thanks to strong support via word of mouth and relentless shows with the likes of Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Meat Beat Manifesto, Chemlab, 16 Volt, Andrew W.K., Stromkern, Dismantled, Acumen Nation, DJ? Acucrack, Bile, Nocturne, Rabbit Junk, Cruciform Injection, Defragmentation and many more.
Sean Payne, Drew Rosander and Brian Blake formed Cyanotic in 2002. The band released its EP Mutual Bonding Through Violation in 2003 under the band's own Glitch Mode Recordings, to critical acclaim despite a limited printing of 1200.
Transhuman, was released in mid-2005. It was Cyanotic's first full length album, containing 12 tracks and featuring production by Jason Novak of Acumen Nation / DJ? Acucrack and Chris Cozort of iammynewt. The album became an underground hit thanks to strong word of mouth, positive reviews, relentless touring and a rabid internet fanbase.
The original Transhuman sold out as of August 2006. Due to popular demand, Cyanotic began production on a 2-disc deluxe edition, Transhuman 2.0, soon after the "Hail the Glitch 2k6" summer tour. The double album features the original Transhuman, digitally remastered by Chris Cozort of iammynewt, as well a second disc featuring new songs, alternate mixes, bonus tracks and guest appearances from members of Front Line Assembly, 16 Volt, Acumen Nation, DJ? Acucrack, mindfluxFuneral and fellow Glitch Mode Recordings buddies Rabbit Junk. Transhuman 2.0 saw its release via WTII Records and BitRiot Records in association with Glitch Mode Recordings in July 2007.
Cyanotic has done remixes and production work for many prolific artists, including Pigface, Chemlab, 16 Volt, Acumen Nation, Rabbit Junk and See Colin Slash. Cyanotic has also contributed exclusive tracks to various compilations. A new full length album, "The Medication Generation", is currently in production and set for release in summer 2009.
