As is tradition, welcome to Death’s Door, Hellions. Wipe your feet on the mat and pull up a bone throne. July was a good month for the ol’ plug-and-chug. I feel like garbage physically today, folks. Which honestly feels like an outward manifestation of how I feel on the inside…

Hey! Listen to Hanormale!

Most of the time when we ask you to listen to something it’s because we think it’s good, that it deserves more listens, and that you might enjoy it. Today I’m not sure if this is good or if you’re going to like it, but it’s certainly different and probably…
