Solitary Experiments formed in 1994 as a collaboration between Dennis Schober and Michael Thieleman, who had briefly collaborated before as 'Plague'. The following years saw occasional live shows and the release of a couple of demo tapes before the song 'God, Where Are You?' from the 'New Violent Breed' compilation in 1999, which would become a hit in their native Germany as well as Holland and the USA. Their debut album 'Final Approach' was released on Machinery later that year.
A couple of high-profile festival performances in 2000 (including a slot at that years chaotic Wave-Gotik-Treffen) preceeded their second album 'Paradox' in 2001, with their first performances in the USA later that year. The 2002 remix collection 'Final Assault' would be their final release on Machinenwelt, moving to Out of Line for 2003's 'Advance Into Unknown'. A tour with Icon of Coil followed a year later, with Solitary Experiments 4th studio album 'Cause and Effect' released in September 2005.
