Necroma Can Get in on the 24-hour Game, Too

This slipped through the cracks for me the other day; if I hadn’t be oshi-ing yesterday, I’d have missed it again:

To prep for their tour-ending one-man at LIQUIDROOM, Necroma’s going to do the 24-hour thing, 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. I believe that we may be able to view remotely? Ricky, if you’re out there, please illuminate us as to exactly what’s going to happen during those 24 hours. We know that the only one of the members who actually needs human sleep is Rei, but how do you fill that space in time? Continue reading

I Review Things: NECRONOMIDOL | ‘DAWNSLAYER’

I love being on press lists! When the presser email came in yesterday, I did a little jig to myself and immediately downloaded the review copy of “DAWNSLAYER.” I listened to the whole thing through twice, bothered Terry about it, bothered other people I know about it, and decided that “yeah, so you don’t normally review singles but come on it’s basically an EP there are five total songs and also Necroma,” so here we are. On to the review!

We Interview Idols: NECRONOMIDOL

I’m sure by now you’ve all read Krv’s take on last week’s NECRONOMIDOL one-man in London, if not check it out here, because he put this experience into words far better than I ever could! But let’s just say; it was only a few months ago that I said that I’ll probably never attend an idol show for personal reasons (aka Japan is expensive), if you told March!Kerrie that in 4 months time she’d be having a quick chat with Necroma inside a tiny kitchen she’d say “did I get drunk and post bad self-insert fanfiction again?” But now I’ve had a few days to reflect on what the heck just happened, I can certainly say it’s real. I have audio files and photos to prove it. Continue reading

Necroma Screamed for Vengeance and Got a New Single and More for It

Ye gods, that’s an awful title

Well, friends, either I was drunk all day yesterday or this set of announcements from NECRONOMIDOL slipped through the cracks. Regardless, just so you know, as they wrapped up the “Blood Red Skies” show as part of the SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE tour, Necroma unveiled themselves a brand new song that’s going to be out as a single at the end of August:

With a follow-up tour of New Caledonia to boot! “DAWNSLAYER,” though, what a title. That’s so dark and even reverse-Luciferian that I can barely stand it. Continue reading

Man, NECRONOMIDOL’s European Tour Keeps Getting More Interesting

The weirdest stuff happens sometimes, you guys, and in weird clusters.

We’ve known about Necroma hitting France and Italy this summer for a while, and it’s been pretty seriously suspected that there was more in the works than just what we knew. Ricky even kind of hinted at it during a recent twitcast.

So when Terry got wind of a London show (via), the hype machine started to heat up.

Ain’t no hype machine no more!

Get your tickets here!

But that’s not even all! Continue reading

Damn, You Guys, Necroma Had a Week

All right, partly because I feel badly about having missed out on the first of these bits of NECRONOMIDOL news in the first place and also because I wanted to gather a bunch of stuff together, I’m doing this thing a little bit weirdly.

First up! If you haven’t yet seen Necroma’s feature piece from the Bandcamp home page, you really should check it out:

The scene is infused with the playfulness of dance, twinkling piano, and elaborate costumes.

Let’s Break Open Sunday With Some Blackened Alt-Idol

Good morning! It’s Sunday. It should be a day for laziness, not just because it’s the last day before the start of the 9-5 work week, but because the entire Abrahamic tradition flat-out says that there’s a day when you’re supposed to do absolutely nothing. I support that notion, but will not be doing nothing, because doing nothing is butt. Something is always better than nothing!

However, if you do opt for the more godly way, I encourage you to break into the mood with this clip of Oyasumi Hologram and VMO playing together. It’s not the raw spectacle of the last time I shared that happening, but it’s still pretty impressive.

Interested in Seeing a NECRONOMIDOL Show Online? Here’s How to Get Tickets

Sharp-eyed Alex caught this ticket promo for a “secret” Necroma show — secret in the sense that the time and date will only be announced once you’ve submitted for one of the limited e-tickets, but not secret in the sense that a) you can order the tickets and b) it is stated to be an online performance.

You can order here. And remember to complete the process from the confirmation email! Continue reading

Who’s in the Mood for NECRONOMIDOL Live?

From what I’ve seen across the idolverse in the last week and change, a bunch of folks were either just in Tokyo or are about to be in Tokyo, and they’re talking about their idol experience — saw so-and-so, got a great cheki, bought this merch stuff. And a bunch of people saw Necroma! Which, we’re very lucky that you made it home!

I doubt very many of them were at this show over the weekend, but maybe they can tell us about it from when they were at a show; if you’ve puzzled at all over the live performance of “ITHAQUA” since its triumphant appearance in our lives a little while back, this is for you:

A Spectre Will Be Haunting Europe — The Spectre of NECRONOMIDOL

This is very new and very light on details, and in fact I skipped right over it earlier and had to be shown the error of my ways by our translator pal, but holy smokes, you guys, NECRONOMIDOL is taking their dark gospel to Europe:

Details are currently non-existent, except that they’re going to France and Italy in the early part of July, and may be add other countries, too. Unholy smokes. Continue reading
