Kaqriyo Terror Architect’s EP Is Already Feeling Like One of the Year’s Best

It’s time, it’s time! Kaqriyo Terror Architect, befoulers of decency and soon-to-be queens of the underground if there’s an ounce of justice in the world, have previously made it known that their first EP was coming, and that we should prepare. Today, we get our first taste, and I don’t know if anybody could have prepared enough for it.

Two-hour window, of course, but:

You know the drill. Continue reading

ZOC Feels Too Good to Be True

As if 2018 hasn’t already been absolutely lousy with great idol debuts, along comes every idol’s greatest champion, Oomori Seiko, with a unit of her own. Like, when this was announced, I thought, oh neat it’ll be cool if she stands in as producer and writes some tracks — I didn’t expect that she’d don the skirt herself and step right the hell up as leader.

Given the quality of this pre-debut teaser, I’m guessing that she just didn’t want to feel left out:

And this is just the intro! There’s precious little info about where this project is heading (even Natalie.mu is stripped down to the basics of them debuting tonight). That means speculation — the stupider the better! — so I’m going to go out on a wild-ass limb and say that it’s time to go all-in because: Continue reading

Here’s Our First Look at the New PassCode Single

Man, few things can get me as revved back up and into an idol mood as something new from PassCode; I’ve been watching their Twitter like a hawk for the typical preview of the double A-side to drop (the art got me particularly hype) just so that I could bask in the thermonuclear glow of PassCode doing PassCode things. It’s just a shortened clip from the MV that we got this morning, but that’s a lot more PassCode than we had just yesterday, and that’s fine. Take it away, screaming vocoder digicore idols:

Some of you can probably the see the whole thing via that link in the tweet, but many of us can’t! I even went chasing after PassCode on Facebook to see if they’d added an upload for us there yet, but alas: Continue reading

Let’s Just Call It the Boss Single

In case it hasn’t been obvious, I’ve become a little bit of a BiSH skeptic over the past year or so — even my original support for the last single waned in retrospect. It grieves me, actually; my all-time idol top 10, regardless of whether it’s song-album-video-person-whatever, has BiSH all over it, and I remain an ardent supporter of the idea of BiSH and the incredible barrier-breaking potential that I think they have. This is why, even almost two years into a long run of mostly being disappointed by them, I get the giddies when they spin off new stuff, especially new stuff that appeals directly to my own biases!

That’s a split solo single for Aina — nothing new there — and the Captain herself. Continue reading

So How Do We Feel about EMPiRE Right Now?

I’m asking this question because we’re coming up on the EMPiREiversary and folks in this community seem to fall on a simple continuum when it comes to WACK’s first explicit collaboration with Avex — people seem to be EMPiRE fans, or they’re fairly indifferent, or somewhere blithely in between. This is relevant because hey, there’s a new EP coming out in a few weeks, and the MV for the lead track is out in a few days, and just kind of let this wash over you:

That looks sleek as hell and sounds like it’s either going to be epic or another reductive “Orchestra” knock-off. Neither, for what it’s worth, would be bad in the absolute, but one is seriously better than the other, you know? I also thought that maybe we were looking at clips from at least two total MVs, actual results of course yet to be determined. Continue reading

I’m Like Crying about This New Zenkimi Song

Well if this isn’t completely out of left field — masters of the quasi two-hour teaser release window Zenbu Kimi no Sei Da have graced us with a new song without a shred of warning or even a new release date to consider. It’s just out here, and it wants us to listen to it!

Prepare yourself. Either in the link or after the jump, your life is about to change. Continue reading

It’s Time for Another Tsurezure Song! Also Holy Shit!

How many days has it been since the first time that Not Secured, Loose Ends, the idol formerly and technically still known as Yukueshirezutsurezure, teased the first track from their upcoming exFallen album? Enough that it’s time to have another one!

Ir’s the usual two-hour window, but that’s okay; here on Homicidols.com, time has no meaning! Continue reading

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
