That’s literally the worst headline I’ve ever written; you’re welcome
With the Makuhari Messe show announced, you knew it would only be a matter of time for BiSH, now officially existing to shovel money into Avex’s gaping maw, to announce a new record to build on the steady success of “DEADMAN” and KiLLER BiSH and now “Promise the Star” and continue their inexorable rise to being big enough, but not staid enough, for Budokan.
And while my nose is straight up my own butt with the Corenament, releases continue to be announced and excitement continues to be built. John on two releases that are sure to be loud and satisfying.
Well, looks like EiT PARK RECORDS/Disk Union is going to send a couple more releases our way. These are a couple I have been waiting for, since it has been a while for each group. First we have a mini-album from 偶想Drop entitled “Painfully violent”. I am sure most of you have seen it on […]
You all know that I’m a big supporter of Osaka’s indie, solo rock-and-metal-and-awesome idol Ophelia 20mg, and I’ve been very excited to share her videos over the past couple of weeks; well, now she’s got out a full trailer for her upcoming album:
Technically, BLOODTHIRSTY was already released, and we’ve had a chance to see promo material from one of idol metal’s best individual performers, but Yajima Mai just released this album trailer on YouTube the other day, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t share it and tell you that you should think about trying to acquire it … somehow?
Tell me at which song preview you felt utter despair overwhelm you
This is just a quickie — I’ve seen folks sharing this in various places around the International Alt-Idol Internet Fandom Consortium Inc. (Kari) — but I wanted an excuse to do something with the perfect modern idols, Yanakoto Sotto Mute, and their release of these details around the upcoming BUBBLE album is perfect.
This was a fun bit of news from yesterday that I wanted to save, and also because I had no idea what the original tweet was definitely saying until after the fact. But! It could have been predicted that Hauptharmonie would have a new release coming along at basically any moment, seeing as how they tend to put out something of substance at a rate that would even make Billie Idle blush, and it’d been … wow, many months since the release of the (very good) Herz ueber Kopf. So this, by itself, wasn’t tremendously shocking:
Bringing back the disclaimers! It’s not a secret that I’m a huge mark for NECRONOMIDOL, and that their producer, Ricky Wilson, has been a friend to Homicidols.com in what I hope is a mutually fulfilling relationship; that being said, while I never had much reason to think that DEATHLESS would be anything less than great, I made a strong effort to put the relationship behind me for this sucker; I may love idol and I may love dark idol and I may love NECRONOMIDOL, but we don’t build community trust without honesty, and we don’t make other fans by being sycophants.
Oh, oh my friends, I don’t want to paint everybody’s expectations for NECRONOMIDOL’s DEATHLESS album as being as high as mine, but, if “ITHAQUA” is any indication, it’s going to be the early front-runner for Album of the Year.
I know they’re in Japan, but we’re one fjord and/or burning church away from it being Norway
Man, Necroma’s doing a real number on pretty much everybody else in idol+metal anymore; while others (not named FRUITPOCHETTE or Babymetal, at least) fall into predictable sounds or just plain fail to stay in operation, Necroma’s out here blasting away with the forces of evil. The song I dig; the only thing that could make this video better would be if their final approach to the camera were on the backs of timber wolves and/or polar bears, and/or maybe if they were wielding outlandish bladed weapons.
