Disown is a four-piece Industrial rock band originally from Cleveland, Ohio. Along with guitar riffs and stabbing electronic synths similar to Nine Inch Nails or Linkin Park, Disown adds an arrangement of melodic, emotional lyrics similar to A Perfect Circle or Tool. Formed in 2000, Disown has shared the stage with HIM, Atreyu, Lacuna Coil, Static-X, Orgy, Godhead, Crossbreed, Mushroomhead, Trust Company, KMFDM and The Apex Theory. The original lineup consisted of Jae Rohrer on vocals and guitar, Mitch Langford on guitar and sequencing, Jesse Rohrer on bass, and Gerry Lakarosky on drums. In 2004, Disown appeared in an article of the Daily Kent Stater written by Mark Bodkin documenting the recording process of their first release "Angels and Atheists." Later that same year, they traveled to the Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio to demo three songs with Eric Rickey that would later appear on "Requiem of One." That same year, Disown replaced drummer, Gerry Lakarosky with Scott Kaczmarek. In 2005, Disown secured a spot on the OzzFest 2004 tour performing in front of more than 30,000 people. In 2005, the band secured business with Cleopatra Records and had their single, "Policy of Truth" placed on a tribute to Depeche Mode.
