    RITUAL INSCRIPTION is the first release on the new Bakersfield-based creative music label Epigraph Records. Recorded live at a jam-packed midnight concert at Metro Galleries in downtown Bakersfield, the album features the fierce improvisational intensity of internationally renowned percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani from Japan, with the mangled electronic alchemy of Los Angeles guitarist Jeremy Drake and the slash-and-burn brass of Bakersfield trumpeter Kris Tiner. This edition is limited to 500 numbered copies, with one of five original designs screen printed on the back of each jacket by cover artist Alex Sarad. Bandcamp customers can choose from four available designs during checkout (subject to availability).

    Includes unlimited streaming of Ritual Inscription via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
