My love affair with the darkness in music began 30+ years ago when I first heard Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine and I quickly fell down a rabbit hole of music by bands that had a dark quality to them. Before that point I was a huge Punk and Tharash/Speed Metal fan. You could say there was darkness there but the main emotions I felt was aggression and nihilism. I did find the deathrock and 2nd wave black metal world fairly quickly, and it blended with all the previous sounds I had been collecting in my head for years. Along the way I started a label, but I had partners and felt the music it released should be bands I felt had potential to sell and go further. In hindsight, it was a mistake. Don't get me wrong, the bands were great and people loved them but my soul always called for bands that dug deeper, to darker depths.

After years of being away from label life, a band with members that I hold as good friends, allowed me to press the vinyl release of their debut full length. This of course was DETOXI. Originally this was just going to be a one time thing but it got me remembering how much I had always wanted to release music that talked with my soul. So here we are together, and I promise that whatever is released via PLAIN DISGUISE, is something my soul has fallen for and hopefully the darkness you crave can be satisfied as well. Thanks for stopping by!
