Emperor Gutt. Corpse Grinder Cult Leader

Between the bone and the gristle, where meat runs to fat and the iron taste of blood is purer than water. That first bite into pink, blood-flesh. That’s when you know your strength, and know how weak they are. That we can take what we wish, and feed our children what we wish, and be…
