about

Noxious Emotion Seattle, Washington

Noxious Emotion has been brining Electronic Dance Industrial music from the NorthWest since 1992. During the height of the Grunge scene, Noxious Emotion was making a truly underground statement and musical style. This catalogue has been unavailable for years, now it's back, for those of you who want to know what it was really like during the height of the Industrial Revolution. ... more

THIS HALLOWED GROUND I LIE UPON, SUFFERING, MY TEARS FEEDING THIS SEED, TAKING FORM INSIDE, HEAR MY CALLING, WORDS OF PROMISE, ASH ON THE WIND, GLIMMERING TRUTH, GLIMMERING DECEPTION, THE FOUNDATION OF MY BEING. HIS HAND UPON MY SKIN, HIS FEAR IN MY MIND, FATHER, TAKE ME ON, SHOW ME ALL THAT I'LL NEVER BE, TAKE ME ON, CAREFUL NOT TO CROSS THE LINE, YOU NEVER KNEW ME, NOW I CAN ONLY DREAM YOU A MEMORY. THE TALONS RIPPING MY MIND LIKE SO MANY TRAILS IN THE WIND, FIGHTING THIS CONTENTION WITHIN, CANT SOMEBODY HELP ME, CANT SOMEONE SAVE ME FROM THIS CONTENTION. THROUGH THE TWO BLACK HOLES THE PATH AND PAIN ARE ENDLESS, IN MY EYES ALL SEEMS OTHERWISE, THIS SKIN IS A TRAP TO MY SOUL, A MISERY I CANT CONTAIN, THE ACHE IS DULL, THE ACHE IS SLOW, A CONTENTION WITHIN, IM ALL ALONE, IM ALL ALONE ASKING YOU TO REMEMBER ME, REMEMBER. THE WATER IS FOUL, UNTAMMED AND SPOILED, SWALLOWING DESPAIR IN QUANITY, MOISTENED LIPS DROWING IN BODILY FLUID, SHAMED IN ELEGANCE THE KING LOOKS ON, PROVIDING THE NEED THE WHORE DRINKS DEEPLY, A SPOKEN RAGE, THE DEAD MAN YELLS TO ME, DESPISE LIKE ACID DRIPPING FROM HIS MAW, HATE OF SENTIMENT AND VOID OF RESPITE, BEYOND IN SEARCH OF THE LIVING, ALIVE SEEKING DEMISE, THE REWARD OF THE OBSCENE AND SO HERE I STILL LIE ON THIS HALLOWED GROUND, SUFFERING AND FEEDING THIS SEED OF IMMORTALITY
