True story: I’ve listened to this like 30 times
I approve. Continue reading
Jeez Louise, you guys, you’re supposed to tell me when Hiroshima’s own loudols (I love that word) release something new. This is their seventh(!) single, due for release on Tuesday.
Honestly, I’d love to know who wrote this, because it sounds so much like a heavied-up version of a down-catalog Sakura Gakuin song that I’m surprised that it isn’t a down-catalog Sakura Gakuin song. Continue reading
I told you we weren’t done with debuts for 2016! Next weekend, yet another electrock* group will be setting off on the road to idol glory. I refer, of course, to:

In a coincidence that Alanis Morissette would almost certainly misidentify, yesterday, I used DAIDAIDAI’s teaser video to sum up my personal feelings about the onrushing end of election season; today, it’s the video of their debut that, front to back, might encapsulate your experience.
I wanted this to be about three minutes longer, but I’ll take it!
Ah, this is good. So DAIDAIDAI (die die die!) have been doing regular promotional appearances with flyers on which is printed a QR code to download their two demo tracks. Unless you happen to show up where they are, no music for you!
But their very cool manager just added the songs to Bandcamp, and you can get a free listen (no download, though) for about 23 more hours:

Let’s set the right energy for what’s about to come next and come back to Broken by the Scream. Remember them? A landing place for an ex-969er? Part of that two-week stretch where it seemed like there was another metal-sounding unit either debuting or recently debuted or about to debut in a few months or something but WOW that’s a lot of metal are you sure you guys are okay?
Well, they may have basically just been a Twitter account before, but they’ve apparently been in the works for a while, and leave it to literal gift to civilization Viz Major to find an old demo on YouTube. Continue reading
Yep, more new idols! Or, in this case, not so much new as new to us.
Meet Sola Sound (Twitter | Facebook!). Their online lifespan goes all the way back to March, and it looks like they debuted in May. Three members, doing kind of a PassCode Lite sound, with a little of the edgy kawaii presentation, and a website that looks a lot like NEVE SLIDE DOWN’s … holy shit, has We-Bstudio colonized?(no) Continue reading
Don’t ask me where and how I first wound up following Production Axcis (that’s a company, not a group) and their Atelier di marionetta (pretty much literally, “dolls factory”*) on Twitter, but I’ve always been kind of confused about it and the two young women associated with it. I even did a search of old stuff on here just to make sure that I hadn’t previously written about them and forgotten it — nope.
So! They just (well, Friday) dropped this full-length MV on YouTube. The song is called “Poison Girl,” and though you’re probably seeing this in the morning, just try to imagine that you’re listening to it on the way to the three-story club that only cards on the first and third levels and mostly plays shit like Prodigy and Chemical Brothers and Skrillex on that coveted second floor, where you’re looking forward to drinking too much and getting stuck in a weird pelvic tangle with two strangers in leather who seem nice enough until they actually invite you back to their place and your brain immediately turns “their place” into “torture chamber” and you hurriedly find your friends and escape. Good night!
We here at Homicidols.com, like to pride ourselves on a spirit of discovery and, unlike the 2-year-old monster who won’t eat anything other than Spaghetti-O’s and chicken nuggets, open-minded willingness to try just about anything. So when I see things show up in the Idolmetal group at odd hours, I know enough to mark it down and come back in the morning, because it’s probably at least worth a look.
And folks, what a look.
