Gigan recorded Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes (Willowtip), the 2011 album on which "Transmogrification Into Bio-Luminoid" appears, in Chicago with Sanford Parker. Guitarist Eric Hersemann, the band's main creative force, is a native Chicagoan, and last year he moved back here from Tampa, Florida, where he'd founded Gigan in 2006.
Given that song title, which sounds like a phrase you might encounter in one of the Calvin & Hobbes Spaceman Spiff strips (my other favorites are "Suspended in Cubes of Torment" and "In the Tentacled Grasp of a Buried Behemoth"), you won't be shocked to learn that Gigan play ridiculously convoluted technical death metal with a psychedelic sci-fi sheen. Despite its blazing complexity, "Transmogrification Into Bio-Luminoid" is surprisingly playful, even memorable (I wouldn't go as far as to say "catchy"). I'm especially a fan of the cyborg vocals at 5:06.
