We’ve known for a little while that Karen was leaving NECRONOMIDOL at the appointed time, and that came yesterday and honestly, it is kind of sad. There hasn’t been additional media yet (blog post, etc.), but we do have this nice photo from after the live:
Yep! The Dark Girls have re-released their NEMESIS album on vinyl through Specific Recordings. That is, the Specific Recordings that’s based in France. That can swing distribution around Europe and the Americas. That … uh …
I run! I’m not particularly good at it, but it’s a good way to keep my maniacal frame svelte and fit, and this latest routine has been the most steadily that I’ve been able to keep at it and build miles since I re-started to run for fitness as an adult. Unfortunately, I do have a tendency to overwork, and I recently managed to resurrect some old foot strain that I’ve lately been managing by going out a little less frequently.
All of that background is to say that logging lots of miles is a good way to listen back through some of my favorite idol material, and I was really motivated to do that after work yesterday. I can get into the emotions of the songs for pace and, because my brain has nothing else to worry about, pick through instrumentation and the like. Last night, I opted for NECRONOMIDOL’s recently released (excellent) mini-album from chaos born.
Disclaimer: Necronomidol is making an explicitly international push for this record; this humble little site was included in their press release, which, wow. And because I surf social media all the time for idol news and saw the pre-release stuff hit Facebook the other day, I was out in front of the announcement; hence, this is a little bit of a hybrid. How appropriate!
Unless I’ve completely lost the ability to put two and two together, this is a narrated visual history of Necronomidol from way back (1.75 years!) to the “Vulture” days until the present, their “Road to Liquid” promo (Liquid Room being the site of their one-man next month).
And is this saying that there’s a new song in there?
