NECRONOMIDOL’S New Dark Age Is Going to Be Awesome

As we saw the other day, NECRONOMIDOL’s year-starting one-man promised new songs, new look and big announcements. That did not disappoint.

And it looks like they had fun, which, in the context of what follows, should be deeply troubling. Continue reading

Meet the Newest Member of NECRONOMIDOL

The New Dark Age is impending, friends, and NECRONOMIDOL is preparing us. As you can see in the banner (and more clearly in their new artist photo), they’re back to a quintet and appear to be ready for some good ol’ fashioned sacrilege.

And who might that rather elegant-looking mistress of the damned opposite Risaki be? Continue reading

A New Dark Age Dawns: NECRONOMIDOL’s Future Is a Terror

Now this is how you do a press release. And just in time for the holidays!

NECRONOMIDOL, who already hit us with their video for “psychopomp” earlier in the week, has a major announcement about their future that can fittingly only be announced via violence-and-the-macabre video:

NECRONOMIDOL. Live. With a Band.

Yesterday was actually a pretty good start to the week; we got a whole bunch of news about releases and there weren’t any casualties in the marathon and there were even a couple of surprise new MVs. Pretty good day! My highlight, though? See the post title.

“NYX” is off of Necroma’s exquisite from chaos born EP. I don’t know if I could be said to expect any video, much less live, from most of the songs on that record, just given the very distinct moods they convey and the challenge of translating that to a visual medium, but I gotta say, this looks like a lot of fun.

A Dark Day: Now Hotaru Is Leaving NECRONOMIDOL

It’s actually quite pleasant outside, so she must be content with the decision.

I did not expect to see this in my feed when I woke up (late) this morning:

Hotaru’s going to be following on Kusaka Karen’s heels and graduating to (ironically) enroll in university. Her final appearance as a Dark Girl will be either on the 29th or at the Corazon Fest (genuinely a good bill!) in December (I can’t tell and translators suck).

This one stings. Continue reading

NECRONOMIDOL Welcomes a New Denizen of Darkness

Ever since Kusaka Karen’s graduation last month, it’s been only a matter of time before NECRONOMIDOL unveiled their updated roster with a new member. As one is wont to fear having to say about idols who are the physical embodiment of your nightmares, that day has finally arrived:

Imaizumi Satoshi Imaizumi Rei. Give the future devourer of some poor jerk’s soul a follow, would you?

TY Viz Major for correcting the gender reading that Google horked up.

The Dark Girls Are Down One Kusaka Karen

We’ve known for a little while that Karen was leaving NECRONOMIDOL at the appointed time, and that came yesterday and honestly, it is kind of sad. There hasn’t been additional media yet (blog post, etc.), but we do have this nice photo from after the live:
