Apologies for the so-late-it’s-just-awkwardness of the post, but I forgot that I wanted to make a big deal out of this on Friday because such is life. And what is life, even, now that we have the literally eternal — that is, existing infinitely, beyond the bounds of time and space — presence of NECRONOMIDOL looming within the shadows of existence? Worthless, that’s what it is, but the question is also rhetorical flourish and all right let’s just skip to the point.
NECRONOMIDOL, beloved and befeared like few others, revealed at the risk of inducing utter madness among their followers (or, at least, those who aren’t already under complete spiritual enslavement) some upcoming plans, and yes, I do believe that we’re all going to be happy people:
The last time the Inquisition came to Europe, thousands were killed, thousands more forced to convert or driven into exile, nascent nation-states reformed by fire and blood. The aftermath of its quest for infidels and heretics extended far beyond the realm of the spirit and deep into the temporal affairs of emperors and kings. The reverberations of its impact can be felt through the centuries even to today.
And that was even before NECRONOMIDOL showed up!
Yes, the Darkness Girls will be returning once again to terrorize the European continent, bringing with them endless plagues and excellent music. It’s a long-ass tour with big events and extended stops and why am I doing my traveling in the wrong hemisphere this year? The choices we make …
Anyway, the important stuff, like where and when: Continue reading
The NECRONOMIDOL EUROPEAN INQUISITION 2019 announcement has dropped, short on dates but full of intriguing details. For those of you within affordable travel distance of London, the one date you will certainly want to save is the mid-July weekend of HYPER JAPAN.
NECROMA will be joining the distinguished ranks of former HYPER JAPAN alumni including Yoshiki and Toshi (X Japan), Dempagumi.inc, friends of Homicidols Mutant Monster and Charisma.com, and site favorite LADYBABY.
In all, Necroma confirmed eight summer gigs in six European countries, including a couple of out-of-the-way spots with some rather esoteric connections. Continue reading
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
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
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
Let’s just leave this here:
Babymetal‘s European tour is now fleshed out a bit, though not all that extensive — it may be that they add some festival additional appearances later in the summer or finally please their Asian fans and spend more time in their relative back yard. As always, stay tuned.
More on the tour.
