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:
【重大発表】 ・SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE ワンマンツアーの大阪公演追加！ 夏の終わり頃大阪で2Days主催！
Update your social profile picks for the day, and/or relentlessly show the world your commitment
Use #Deathless4Necroma and tag @NECRONOMIDOL on Twitter or Facebook or maybe even Instagram
And remember to tell your friends!
Also remember, in the wise words of the Supreme Nothing himself: Have fun with it. You don’t need to go wildly down the road of making yourself into a member of Abbath’s backing band; smash some white paint on your face, trace some black around your eyes and mouth, grimace/stick your tongue out at a camera, profit. If actually painting your face isn’t your idea of a good time, or if paint is hard to come by or the opportunity doesn’t present itself etc., you can also tweet out images of other black metal stuff, or of Necroma, or turn your profile pics white-and-black. The only limit is your imagination!
Here’s a fresh tutorial to show you how it (the painting) is done:
You can also follow Brian’s advice and accessorize!
Bringing back the disclaimers! It’s not a secret that I’m a huge mark for NECRONOMIDOL, and that their producer, Ricky Wilson, has been a friend to Homicidols.com in what I hope is a mutually fulfilling relationship; that being said, while I never had much reason to think that DEATHLESS would be anything less than great, I made a strong effort to put the relationship behind me for this sucker; I may love idol and I may love dark idol and I may love NECRONOMIDOL, but we don’t build community trust without honesty, and we don’t make other fans by being sycophants.
Oh, oh my friends, I don’t want to paint everybody’s expectations for NECRONOMIDOL’s DEATHLESS album as being as high as mine, but, if “ITHAQUA” is any indication, it’s going to be the early front-runner for Album of the Year.
I know they’re in Japan, but we’re one fjord and/or burning church away from it being Norway
Man, Necroma’s doing a real number on pretty much everybody else in idol+metal anymore; while others (not named FRUITPOCHETTE or Babymetal, at least) fall into predictable sounds or just plain fail to stay in operation, Necroma’s out here blasting away with the forces of evil. The song I dig; the only thing that could make this video better would be if their final approach to the camera were on the backs of timber wolves and/or polar bears, and/or maybe if they were wielding outlandish bladed weapons.
Hello everybody! I wanted to share this quick reminder about the next big community idol support project, this time to celebrate NECRONOMIDOL and the release of their DEATHLESS album that I could not be giddier about.
They say, when you love something, set it free. That’s terrible advice, because everybody knows that the best way to love is to completely suffocate the object of your affection until it can’t possibly escape! Hence, in the past several months, we’ve shown our deep abiding love to BiS with the New Idol Army and PassCode with International Hackers … and now, with the release of their DEATHLESS album rapidly approaching, we’re going #Deathless4Necroma.

About a week ago, I had tweeted pure, raw excitement over this event — JyuJyu! Necroma! Uh, Dance for Philosophy! And others!(?) — that was going to be all incredibly dark and spooky and ARE YOU UNMOVED BY THE FACT THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN?
New collaboration: Wota sign up to be killed by JyuJyu and necromanced back by NECRONOMIDOL, then killed again, on & on #IdolPublicityStunts
It’s chilly and rainy and dreary here in the national capital region, folks, and it’s Inauguration Day, so an area that knows gridlock all too well is completely off the rails. What better time for some NECRONOMIDOL?!
This video’s from their live on the 7th; it’s not the New Dark Age Dawns show, but it might still be the first time you’re seeing Himari and/or Rei live.
I love you, Necroma
