Church of Misery base all of their songs on serial killers. I'm not well versed in who a lot of these killers are, but after listening to the eerie intro of Killifornia with Ed Kemper talking about holding a severed human head and wondering if he was insane, I felt compelled to do a little research on the subjects of these songs. Staggering just how fucked up these guys were, with Herbert Mullin killing a total of 13 people because he believed that in doing so, he was protecting California from earthquakes...or Ed Kemper having oral sex with the decapitated head of his mother. Crazy and creepy to read some of this stuff. However, these songs are the perfect soundtrack to the stories of these disturbed individuals.
Since Church of Misery is from Japan, Rise Above included an OBI strip as part of the packaging. It's a real nice touch, and shows how much Rise Above care about the packaging of their releases.
