The project was founded in 2003 by singer/multi-instrumentalist Hamlet.
Musically it has always been covering a wide range of genres, from dark-wave to different, sometimes quite radical sorts of progressive rock, supported by avant-garde lyrics. After years of live shows and accumulating the material, in his own recording studio, Hamlet began working on a conceptual album titled: 'The Dream', which was released in 2007.
The album came out to be a dark and gloomy mix of progressive rock, trip-hop, ambient and industrial music and gathered quite positive response in local press. Hamlet recorded all the instruments himself, following the philosophy of strictly individualistic music making approach.
After a complicated twist of faith, the project has found itself in Belgium in summer 2008, where the work on a new conceptual album has started. This album, under the title 'Blessed' was released several months later, musically following the same direction.
In 2010 after a certain amount of concerts and a small Belgian tour, the album Charcoal was released, as the very first Transport Aerian album having the musicians from Hamlet's live line up present on the album, which made its sound slightly more variable and less authentic, yet it became much more experimental, empowered by other musician's minds and skills.
After 3 years of silence, during which Hamlet was working with a wide area of different projects (including international Fabulae Dramatis), Transport Aerian came back to life with a brand new album, called Bleeding, which was released in august 2013.
Transport Aerian sets its aim in creating absolutely new and original atmospheric music.
