It’s chilly and rainy and dreary here in the national capital region, folks, and it’s Inauguration Day, so an area that knows gridlock all too well is completely off the rails. What better time for some NECRONOMIDOL?!
This video’s from their live on the 7th; it’s not the New Dark Age Dawns show, but it might still be the first time you’re seeing Himari and/or Rei live.
I love you, Necroma
Also, check out this shirt from their DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH show coming up in a couple of weeks: Continue reading →
I know that I’d seen some of you all talking about this cool little project on Facebook at some point, and then they popped up again a few weeks ago and I’d been meaning to them anyway, and this is as good a time as any.
Speaking of things we’d like Hanako-san to destroy, Watanabe has only gone and pissed off the fanbase (and very likely BiS themselves) with his latest stunt, in which he merged all the horrible things he’s inflicted onto his idols over the course of his career into one big human rights violation lawsuit waiting to happen. And the fandom (myself included tbh) are furious.Continue reading →
How about some idorock! Nope, that’s not a question. Our pal Pure Idol Heart had sent me some video of 81moment a while back, and I kept waiting for a good opportunity to show them off, and I’m in a mood and it turns out that their first single is now on the way.
A few weeks ago, our pal dofphoto was like, “I can do reviews” and I was like “show me” and he was like “okay.” I’m not rescinding the pleasure responsibility necessarily, but I also know that other folks have a tendency to get music that I don’t, and Homicidols.com is nothing if not service-oriented. And so, after some negotiating, here’s dofphoto!
I have a long fan history with Party Rockets. In particular, Yoshiki Haruka. From the dark back part of the stage, Haruka stepped out into the light and took control of what could have been an international rock/pop group. Unfortunately, the trend for graduations within the Party Rockets camp left Haruka and Fumika abandoned to the point that Fumika publicly cried, voicing uncertainty about the future of their beloved group and the fantastic songs they would leave behind.

I was like, “Oh, message from the boss, that’s not good, I hope …” and then it was a bunch of mundane thoughts and then Watanabe’s like “we have a day off, how about a 100km marathon?” Continue reading →
Good for you, Rivers Phoenix, for finding this lovely gem from Shizukaze & Kizuna, a song they released all the way back in 2013 and just put out a video for late last year:
“That’s a really cool song!” you exclaim, and you’re right, it is; there’s a lot of good metal things happening in there. And this group, they were at JAM and other pretty big events … how is it that we haven’t heard of them? Continue reading →
This is true. I don’t know if I’m allowed to share the message itself, so I won’t, but a fan who wanted to buy BiSH’s Less Than Sex tour final DVD via Amazon Japan found that they couldn’t; upon contacting the company, they were informed (in English!) that “the item is only available for domestic orders due to the restrictions of the music production company that sells this DVD.”
That’s talking about Avex, and Avex seems to have a problem with sales abroad. Continue reading →
