Inside the Homicidol Mind: This Pikarin Interview Has the Best Title Ever

It’s slow out there, gang; there isn’t even all that much live stuff happening. It’ll pick up again soon! In the meantime, I happen to share the belief that downtime is the best time, because it’s when you can dive deeper into subject matter than you’d usually have time to, and so I’ve been looking […]

The B-side Is the Best Side: BiSH’s ‘NO THANK YOU’

I’ve extolled the virtues of B-sides before, and the reasons why are pretty simple: While the A-side of any single is the big seller, the accompanying track/s will, by nature, be something either a little bit different (to show a different look) or there to please the fans, or even an early version of a […]

The Team Homicidols Best of 2018

Aw, come on Maniac, you can’t possibly make me write my own Best-Of List when my opinions are about as relevant as Peter Andre’s bathwater? Oh, fine. So, what would the best list look like if I took complete control over Best Of? Probably something like this: /record scratch Hold on! Kerrie, I love and […]

Your Homicidols Best of 2018

Wrapping up the year’s best always comes with a strong exhalation. Relief. It’s a lot of work to get all of the gears moving, and I’m really just an administrator in the whole thing — poor Kerrie, for instance, even in prior years when she was “just” handling the art and stuff, really has the […]

Best of 2018 Ballot #3

Voting’s totes closed, amigos. Thanks for playing! We’re on a record-shattering pace for total votes this year, gang, and thank you so much for being part of this. The Homicidols Best Ofs aren’t meant to be the Awards That Maniac Wants to Give, or even Gee What Does Team Like; they are and always have […]

Best of 2018 Ballot #2

The only ballot still open is #3! Second ballot, team, taking us to about the 2/3 point. There were some tough choices and even individual disappointments in the first set, so guess what lies ahead! This is a good group of stuff, though, and what I think some people took to be omissions earlier will […]

Best of 2018 Ballot #1

Sorry gang, voting on this ballot is closed! It’s time! It’s time! We got here, friends, and we literally couldn’t have done it without you. After completely crowdfunding the Homicidols Best Of in 2016 and 17 and driving people completely nuts, Kerrie developed a plan to not only better track the best things over the […]

It’s Best Of Season and We Need Your Help!

All right you galoots, after a few weeks of teasing about it, I can finally say that we’re ready to get down to business for the official Homicidols Dot Com Best of 2018. Appropriate, seeing as how we just today got hit with stuff that’s probably going to be in the running for the Best […]

Here Is Just Our First Reward for Getting Oyasumi Hologram Stateside

Yesterday afternoon was annoying. I had seen this MV release in my feed, I had set up this post as a shell, and I was just waiting for a chance to do something with it. The time, it did not come, not until late as all heck and it wasn’t worth forcing out something to […]

Kaqriyo Terror Architect’s EP Is Already Feeling Like One of the Year’s Best

It’s time, it’s time! Kaqriyo Terror Architect, befoulers of decency and soon-to-be queens of the underground if there’s an ounce of justice in the world, have previously made it known that their first EP was coming, and that we should prepare. Today, we get our first taste, and I don’t know if anybody could have […]
