Very cool, very danceable EBM outfit from Portland, Oregon. Similar in sound to Front 242, or maybe a little bit softer version of Apoptygma Berzerk or Covenant. Almost minimalist in their musical style.

Noxious Emotion began as a collabaration between Mike Wimer and Shane Benson in 1993. At that time they began playing live shows, and released "This Hallowed Ground" in 1995, as well as material for various compilations. It took 2 years of touring and studio work, but their next album, "Count Zero" was released, furthering the characteristic Noxious sound.

Soon after the release of "Count Zero", Noxious Emotion added Darren Miller, and Megan Mace of Nocturne. In 1998, Shane left the band, and their album "Symbols" was released. It was 2000 before their current album, "Elements" was released.

Noxious Emotion have toured with a plethora of industrial acts, such as KMFDM, Apoptygma Berzerk, VNV Nation, Fockewolf, Hate Dept, Luxt, and SMP. They are distributed by ADSR MusicWerks, of Seattle.
