Unspeakable Cults


The slow, grinding oblivion of a society's collapse under its own fetid bulk has begun.  A fate worse than any soft-pated dreamer's feeble delusion, more dire than any intoxicated vision, more catastrophic than the worst predictions of any besotted minister - this is the effortlessly wielded wyrd of the Malefactor.  It appears on the surface as the accidental mental prolapse of an inebriated clan of degenerates playing at the machinations of the Roman Senate, but their simian ponderings are ill-suited to meet the grandiose disaster unfolding by the hands of He who masters the curse upon all mankind.

 Tonight, we inscribe the scrolls first with neoteric depictions of atrocity, to be followed by profundities from 2010 and 1995.  These years, which speak to the deepest chasms of the soul, are etched in chapters of repugnance...


Behold the Malefactor's unholy presence here.
