Now that the tour is not just official and real and possibly proof that we’ve been living in a Bizarro World dimension for the past year or so, NECRONOMIDOL wants to make very special* connections with you.
The most special of all? Worship and interface from afar!
NECRONOMIDOL is pleased to announce the start of our new international fan club – The Hermetic Order of the Black Dawn! Check it out!https://t.co/XBlJd5gux6
Like any proper initiatory order, HOBD comes with degrees of membership — and just like the Masons or Scientologists, your degree comes down to how much you’re willing to pay! I don’t think that Ricky would appreciate my organizing a few shared accounts to get full access to all of the goods (which would of course then wind up elsewhere online before you can say “Necroma”), so I’ll refrain from that. It’s more than we get from being an international Ultramarine!
Also, for those of you/us who’ll be taking in Necroma’s black invasion of North America, the VIP ticket info is available. John with the goods: Continue reading →
Well, friends, the day has (gulp) finally arrived, and NECRONOMIDOL’s arrival on U.S. shores is not only definitely happening, but now thoroughly planned, and also barely a month away. Details are after the jump; first, feast your senses upon this video message from the members:
I understood Himari when she said “America”
This one’s personal, for what it’s worth. I don’t know how many folks read Colin’s old HuffPost piece on the idols set to break through to international audiences (in 2015!), making that heady jump from Babymetal to lots of great other stuff, but my dude even then was repping hard for Necroma, and they were still mere toddlers in the grand scheme of things. I had the same thought, though, that the darkness girls would catch on like a plague if given a chance to do so, and everything about Homicidols.com was ultimately about them and a handful of other projects (some of which have only come into existence since!), trying to help to build interest and support and bring them to this country.

Years-long droughts. Catastrophic wildfires. City-leveling earthquakes. Kaiju-jaeger battles. Ever-present threats of falling into the sea. Apocalypses that reshape entire continents. Smashmouth. Harvey Weinstein. These threats loom over the daily lives of the residents of the U.S. West Coast, often becoming all too real.
And NECRONOMIDOL hasn’t even gotten there yet.
Yes, friends, it’s likely old news for many of you by now, or maybe some of you are still emerging from shock, or maybe even others will need for you to revive them, guy, so go help your buddy, but Necroma is coming to the United States, confirmed by the Big Man himself (Ricky, that is, not the Abrahamic conception of deity), apparently to prove that there is no good or mercy in the universe, as the unofficial Year of the Natural Disaster is now going to have to contend with the physical arrival of the Darkness Girls.

Untitled. 13 tracks, though I’m guessing some pickup from “GiANT KiLLERS” to keep the creative load light. Plus this “teenagers only and women only” tour of theirs, About a Girl, and fresh merch — the album announcement was last, so I actually spent a half second thinking that the creative well had itself run dry, and that Watanabe was trying to cash in by any means necessary, but naw, forget that.
I’m sure by now you’ve all read Krv’s take on last week’s NECRONOMIDOL one-man in London, if not check it out here, because he put this experience into words far better than I ever could! But let’s just say; it was only a few months ago that I said that I’ll probably never attend an idol show for personal reasons (aka Japan is expensive), if you told March!Kerrie that in 4 months time she’d be having a quick chat with Necroma inside a tiny kitchen she’d say “did I get drunk and post bad self-insert fanfiction again?” But now I’ve had a few days to reflect on what the heck just happened, I can certainly say it’s real. I have audio files and photos to prove it. Continue reading →
Well, friends, either I was drunk all day yesterday or this set of announcements from NECRONOMIDOL slipped through the cracks. Regardless, just so you know, as they wrapped up the “Blood Red Skies” show as part of the SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE tour, Necroma unveiled themselves a brand new song that’s going to be out as a single at the end of August:
I wish there was some new music to talk about, but there isn’t, not really, and not in the case of three bear idols who are now people. Instead, ayukuma has big festival plans for the summer because of course they do, and we may as well get ourselves a kick out of it, same as them.
