27 May 1997
Transmissions from Uranus is the second full-length album by American Industrial metal band Hanzel und Gretyl. It was released in 1997, on Energy Records. It followed the pace set by the band's debut release, Ausgeflippt, as its style was very electronically oriented. The album enjoyed significant success, with the song "9D Galactic Center" even being featured on the soundtrack to Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. This was the band's last release on Energy Records, as the company went out of business in 1998. This was also the band's last release with a focus on machines and space, as their image changed radically upon the release of their third album, Über Alles, which was a satire of totalitarian regimes.
The CD contained a video game named "The Alienator", which could be installed and played on any computer at the time of its release.
