NECRONOMIDOL Welcomes a New Denizen of Darkness

Ever since Kusaka Karen’s graduation last month, it’s been only a matter of time before NECRONOMIDOL unveiled their updated roster with a new member. As one is wont to fear having to say about idols who are the physical embodiment of your nightmares, that day has finally arrived:

Imaizumi Satoshi Imaizumi Rei. Give the future devourer of some poor jerk’s soul a follow, would you?

TY Viz Major for correcting the gender reading that Google horked up.

The Dark Girls Are Down One Kusaka Karen

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:

This Is Legitimately Really Good NECRONOMIDOL Live Video

Going to Thailand has its advantages (besides recruiting unholy warriors of the future), I see — this is some of the clearest Necroma live video you’ve ever seen or heard:

There’s Actually a Ton of Stuff Going on with Necronomidol Right Now

By all accounts, TENEBRAE ASCENDANT was a big ol’ success for the Dark Girls, and the new “Skulls in the Stars” video rocketed right into the peloton of Video of the Year candidates, but they didn’t stop there. Continue reading

I Can Barely Handle Necronomidol’s ‘SKULLS IN THE STARS’ Video … Game

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for this video to happen, but it’s here now in concurrence with TENEBRAE ASCENDANT and oh man.

“Skulls in the Stars” is one of my Necroma personal favorites, a highlight of their album and a genuinely cool genre-bender of a track. Of course the video is a triumphant Ghouls-and-Ghosts-meets-Castlevania-meets-Super-Mario-Bros.-meets-Double-Dragon 8 bit story of the undead rising to fight the forces of evil!

There’s a ton of news flowing out of Twitter right now, too. Stay tuned.

I Review Things: Necronomidol | “from chaos born”

Cover of Japanese black metal idol dark wave group Necromidol's EP "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!

On to the review!

A Visual History of Necronomidol to Prepare You for Tenebrae Ascendent

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?

Or that there’ll be a new song at Liquid? Either way, neat. (I have the volume really low, so excuse me.)

Now make with the new official MV, Necroma.

The Natural: It’s Friday the 13th; What’s Necronomidol Doing?

After their Tokyo Candoll efforts, New Caledonia communion with the Ancient Ones tour and conversion of children to darkness, it feels like we haven’t had much chance to visit with the Dark Girls, but now’s as good a time as any to check in:

Ah yes, of course it’s time to corrupt and horrify the good people of Okinawa! Continue reading
