I’m basically just ganking stuff off of Pure Idol Heart left and right anymore, and credit again goes there. Here’s Hanako-san, an absolute terror of a human being, doing her thing like only she can:
New people, welcome to the idol metal underground; out and visible are highly technical genre-mashing Babymetal or thrashy elegant Fruitpochette or creatively blackened NECRONOMIDOL, among others, but nobody can match Hanako-san’s raw fury. She’s dirty, profane, violent. Like idol’s GG Allin, minus the poop. Which, considering that she’s the ghost of a girl who died in a school restroom, is kind of ironic.
I badly want Hanako-san’s new album. Yes, to review it, but also because I want to be able to say that I own one of the most absurd things imaginable. I can’t think of another idol, ever, doing grindcore.
