Prepare to Get DEATHLESS

Friday has already begun in Japan, and it’ll be creeping (like death!) up on the rest of us in due time. And you know what that means …

It’s Time to Get #Deathless4Necroma!

Once again, the overall details are here, and right here are the really relevant bits:

  • Friday, Feb. 24 (that’s today/tomorrow!)
  • Corpse paint and/or spider
  • On your face
  • Snap a selfie (or, gods forbid, a group photo)
  • 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!

For real, if anybody goes full Gorgoroth for this exercise, I’ll send them a very nice note via email. WHAT AN INCENTIVE.

I Review Things: NECRONOMIDOL | “DEATHLESS”

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.

So. On to the review!

Your First Look and Listen at Necroma’s ‘DEATHLESS’ Is Here

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.

Get Your Corpse Paint Ready: In Two Weeks, We’re Going ‘DEATHLESS’

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.

NECRONOMIDOL Will Officially Have the Most Appropriate Release Format This Year

I know what you’re thinking, and I should append the title with “… That Isn’t Human Skin,” but SEO and all that

Shame on me, friends, for almost not catching this very retro-appropriate press release from Necroma — never send email, basically — and not being able to share … Continue reading

Heaven Help Us All: JyuJyu’s Got Plans

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?

Anyway, it ain’t much, but JyuJyu unleashed a pair of new songs onto the world and announced their first one-man (with this lineup, at least). May all gods dark and terrible protect us.

Brighten Your Mood with NECRONOMIDOL Live

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

Also, check out this shirt from their DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH show coming up in a couple of weeks: Continue reading

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.

Japanese black metal darkwave idol group Necronomidol

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