I will show you his face, the one who lured the maiden to her death. In his songs, he wove promises of eternity and she took his words quite literally.

The Liar will have his tongue cut out, the Traitor will have his treachery branded upon his face while the Killers of the Soul ride the storm to a distant place.

There, they will have their fun, serenading the old and the blind with requiems meant for the dead.

The beast was here all along…
