MISANTROF ANTIRECORDS RELEASES PLAAG DEBUT ALBUM

Posted: January 30, 2011 in OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASES

The 30th January sees the release on Norway’s MisantrofANTIRecords of the debut album from Belgian self-styled Hell Rock’n Rollers PLAAG.  The album, titled “UGH!” was recorded during 2009 and 2010, and was engineered and produced by PLAAG founder and front man Somber, whilst mastering was carried out by CARPATHIAN FOREST bassist Daniel Vrangsinn.  “UGH!”, which is described by Somber as a “a piece of pure, get down and have a good time Black ‘n Roll”,  is available both in CD format,  and, in keeping with Misantrof’s policy, is also available for free download in high quality MP3 with complete artwork at http://plaag.misantrof.net/ whilst the CD is available for purchase directly from the band at http://plaag.bigcartel.com/

Originally formed as a one man project in 2009 by Somber, who performs vocals and plays all the instruments on the album, PLAAG is inspired by early black metal, but with a touch of twisted humour.  A live line up featuring Razend on Drums, Triest & Mist on Guitars and Lava on Bass came together in 2010, and will make its live debut during 2011.

Although “UGH!” is the first full length release from the band, it is not the first time that PLAAG has appeared on Misantrof, having contributed tracks to the label’s tongue in cheek annual “Holy Fucking ANTIChristmas” albums in both 2009 and 2010. Misantrof ANTIRecords is home to bands like EPISODE 13, NIERTY, PROFANE PRAYER, as well as releasing archive material from some of the cult bands and musicians from the Norwegian Black Metal scene.  The label, headed by Daniel Vrangsinn, and which recently celebrated its fourth anniversary, is a 100% non-profit organisation, allowing all its artists to maintain complete control of their material and their earnings.
