Unspeakable Cults

Malefactor

Autumn is traditionally a time for reflection, but no good will come from contemplation of the hideous fate already unfolding in the dark corners of the earth.  The season has been heralded by a fiendish exhumation and a grotesque series of public executions. Those who pray for a gentler world are fools, and the impotence of hope befits their idiocy.  Not even the dead are free from the cruel grasp of the Malefactor, as he unveils gruesome trophies from his personal ossuary dating back to 1997 and 2012, the inaugural years in a series recounting the awesome glories of the last three decades that will span the rest of the year.

Behold the Malefactor's unholy presence here.
