Hailing out of the flourishing Southern California noise community, Misery Ritual is Kyle Ferguson, whose confrontational, cathartic, and unrestrained live performances have soldered an immediate imprint on anyone fortunate enough to bear witness. An intensely personal, unfiltered purge of negative emotion, Searing Blood divides its sides with perfect cohesion between Fergurson’s studio and live incarnations. The first half is some of Ferguson’s most concise and punishing studio work, an compellingly bleak cacophony that is complemented seamlessly by the live performance on the flip, recorded in spring 2018 at Coaxial in Los Angeles. An unflinchingly unique and arresting young voice in harsh noise and power-electronics. Edition of 50. Comes with insert and download code.
