Robin Graves
- Nocturnal Pulse

"This Libertine, A Merciless Necrophile Employs A Drug Which Induces Death-Like Sleep.
His Victims Are Nailed In Coffins And Buried, Shortly After Which They Revive.
The Libertine Waits By The Grave, Placing His Ear To The Soil To Hear A Scream;
If They Do, It Suffices To Make Him Discharge Over The Gravestone.
He Has Killed And Then Enjoyed Most Of His Loved Ones In This Particular Fashion"

- Infernal Overkill

"This Libertine Uses A Machine Which Drills Through Bodies
With A Hollow Steel Bit, Extracting Cylindrical Gobbets Of Flesh
When Removed; If Not Removed The Machine Bores On Automatically, Bringing
Him To Violent Rapture Amid The Jabbing Arc Of His Victims's Blood"

- Zyklon Beats

"Gradually Perfecting His Art On Various Parts Of The Body Over The Years,
This Infamous Skin-Beater Now Thrashes His Victims From Head To Toe
Until She Is Flayed Alive; Wearing Her Skin To Dinner Almost As An
Erotic Afterthought"

Gian Pyres
- Carnivorous Licks

"This Libertine Used To Revel In Just Licking A Lover's Face. Now As A Mature Man
He Prefers To Twist Her Head Right Around Until She Stares Backward.
In This Way, He May Simultaneously Gloat Over Her Tortured Face And Buttocks."

Dani Filth
- Oral Pleasures

"A Renowed Blasphemer, This Libertine Now Goes As Far
As To Deflower Then Crucify Young Virgins, Leaving Them To Suffer
The Agonies Of The Damned As Carrion For Ravens
And Other Less Picky Nightcrawlers..."

- Unbiblical Chords/Torture Chamber Music

"This Libertine Poses As A Priest, First Cataloguing Sordid Confessions
From His Flock Before Showering His Seed Into Their Cold Dead Eyes.
Another Of His Manias Is To Have A Naked Nun Sit Astride A Large Crucifix
Whereupon He Plunges His Priesthood Into Her Cunt Up To The Hilt:
His Thrusts Making Her Clitoris Grind Upon Christ's Beard."

Robin Graves Age 27 Stabbed To Death 13 Times By His 17 Year Old Female Cousin, A City College Co-ed, Who Had Learnt Of Her Mother And Father By Graves' Nefärious Midnight Rites. Purchasing The Knife More Than Twelve Hours Before The Deed & Practising It's Efficiency By Cutting Off Two Canaries' Heads In The Kitchen Of Their Shared Abode, She Then Crept Into His Bedroom To Make The Savage Attack. Motive... Revenge Killing. Adjusted Insane.

Mr. Nicholas Barker Age 25 Killed By What The Coroner's Report Attests To As "Several Persons". His Body Was Found Beaten & Asphyxiated By Fiends Who Crudely Carved An Obscene Phrase ("Die Pig") Reminiscent Of The Tate Killing In His Chest. Cause Of Death Included Extreme Blood Loss And Genital Amputation. Police Suspect Female Involvement Due To The Use Of Lipstick Used To Mark Out Knife Cuts And The Non-Retrieval Of Testicles.

"There Is A Drive Within Me So Powerful That It Completely Takes Over My Sense Of Reasons And Values. Every Day Of My Dark-Glassed Life I Am At The Mercy Of This Insane Maddening Lust To Commit The Ultimate Crime Of Horror, And Only When It Is Done Will I Be At Rest. This Is What I Intend To Do, But I Do Not Know Why..." Gerard Schaefer Jr. - Psychopath
