It’s Time for the Lovely Pain of New Tsurezure, Y’all

Happy Friday indeed! Ever since The Idol Formerly Known as Yukueshirezutsurezure made it known that, finally, a new album would be on the way, I’ve been waiting with bated breath to get a glimpse. For a unit as … not iconic, maybe, but also kind of iconic, NSLE has actually had their share of sound experimentation. However, when they decide that it’s time to tease that new album, and the track in question is self-titled (and the album is exFallen, my goodness), you get the feeling that this is as rootsy as their material can be.

It says two hours, but you know the drill. Continue reading

So Many Things Change, But Zenkimi Remains Stalwart

Hold on to your butts, gang; digital-I-don’t-even-know-what-anymore-core masters Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da, hot off of their last teaser that put their usual through a blender, have another one for us:

And only about an hour late because of a stupid commute!

Yes, you should first click the link in the tweet if the time is still within the window, and yes, the rules apply, but only for suckers: Continue reading

I Will Not Complain about Another Free Zenkimi Song

After yesterday’s introductory blast to NEORDER NATION, I definitely didn’t think we’d have another preview coming so fast, but here we are!

You know the drill. Continue reading

Yeah, I’m Ready for “NEORDER NATION”

Nothing is as predictable as a Codomomental act teasing a good series of promo tracks ahead of their releases, and as soon as the “see you at 21:00” tweet happened the other evening, I created a placeholder for this post. Look how smart I am! Then they did a bunch of other announcements first, and boy did I have egg on my face! But you know what? Eggs are delicious.

But also, per the usual manipulation of Codomomental’s good faith and trust, what they’re saying is available for a couple of hours is actually our eternal plaything! If you can, of course click the link here, but know that goodies never really go away here at Homicidols.com.

Eternal life after the flip. Continue reading

Hakuchumu Has Landed

While you go ahead and get yourself familiar with Hakuchumu, I’m going to get things warmed up a little bit. Last week, @Eyex1st pinged me about a new group. With new stuff. And a … eccentric producer. And, naturally, an entire Pringles tube full of interesting.

Just look at this series of teasers:

My very first thought was that this was a project up to something, whatever that might be. It was all in the service of setting up: Continue reading

Let’s Help Bakuon Dolls Syndrome 0 Make an Album

What the heck was I even doing yesterday when I took a swing past Bakuon Dolls Syndrome’s Twitter? I mean it — I can’t remember why I was looking. But, as luck would have it, I stumbled right into the middle of some big ol’ changes. For one, now they’re Bakuon Dolls Syndrome 0; for another, they want your help with crowdfunding a self-produced record:


That’s the live version, natch

Go Get ’em Candy GO!GO!

I’ve already given away to whom I’m referring here, but let me just say that some casual what-are-they-doing Twitter cruising a little while back turned out a result that for one sweet second made me think that Hauptharmonie still lived, and that I might know true joy again.

Alas! It was Candy GO!GO! and the short-version PV for their new single!


I mean, it’s called “HONEY TRAP” ffs

This is their umpteenth single, releasing the day before this live DVD celebrating the group’s seventh(!) anniversary:

Living Dead I Dolls Will Rise Again

Ah, the heady days of mid-late 2016, when every new idol whatever was ripe for exaggerated excitement, a world of possibilities. Look, somewhat loud stuff! Also idols! Nothing could be better!

We have learned better since then. Though there are always exceptions, and we are incredibly easy marks for whatever poorly shined bauble is dangled in front of our ever-shortening attention spans, it takes more than just showing up to take the majority of fans from acknowledgement to acceptance to love.

But back in 2016, like a shout in the dark did Living Dead I Dolls enter the world. They were a short step up the quality ladder from most of the metal-oriented idol acts, and the members did solid work, and things went pretty well for about a year. Then poof! Like so many fleeting things in idol, fleeted and frittered away.

And then late last night: Continue reading

Make It a Very Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da Kind of Day

Hey! It’s time for the rollout of Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da’s sixth(!) single!

You know how this works. They say “it’s available for two hours” and everybody else says “yeah but HTML” and we all look around because nobody wants to acknowledge the elephant in the room. Continue reading

What’s New, Wagamama Rakia?

It’s been a nice refreshing breath lately for Wagamama Rakia, who’ve always been good but haven’t always been noticeable (despite this, they weren’t even considered for the Corenament!). On the strength of their good year so far, I started to follow them more closely, with payoff. New things are afoot!

To recap: They have themselves an anniversary live coming up in June, but are also embarking on a two-man tour (neat!) and … are adding a fourth member! And also continue to be loud and increasingly interesting. Let’s keep our eyes open.
