Marmalade Dream

The meat grinder of the north - St. Petersburg Russia was created as a sacrifice factory and an indoctrination camp; a delivery device, as it were, for all things gilded nefarious. Like captured soldiers or political subversives, Russians were here commanded to dig their own graves before kneeling in tattered wares upon the lips of eternity. Under whip cruel and oriental, weilded by whispers of the Khan, and echoes of Babylon, this circus of the underworld grew forth from the black, oily swamp, and unfurled its tendrils macabre across this earth in the marmalade halflight.
