I don’t know about where you live, but it’s a pretty nice day here at Maniac Mansion. Then the skies darkened and the lights flickered and the frozen fingers of the dead seized my heart: Necronomidol has put out tracks and art from their upcoming EP, From Chaos Born.
There are three songs: “psychopomp” (which, if you’re at all familiar with esoterica, come on) recalls that creepy black-metal-in-a-music-box thing that may as well be the group’s signature at this point; “Shimin Kaihougun” is another call back to NWOBHM with some cool power metal moments; “Taman Shud” sounds like a really fun dance party — like the one where that guy ate all the bad acid and tore off half of his face because he thought it was full of spiders — and is actually about a mysterious death and a reference to medieval Persian poetry, so. Necronomidol, everybody!
I like how the girl in the cover art inexplicably holding unspeakable evils at bay looks like a composite of Necroma’s members. I also like how the expression on her face says “Oh, there you are; I’ll just go ahead an unleash these upon your world now!”
I really do love you, Necroma.
Just … who thought it’d be a good idea to give them fucking guns?
