I Review Things: NECRONOMIDOL | ‘DAWNSLAYER’

I love being on press lists! When the presser email came in yesterday, I did a little jig to myself and immediately downloaded the review copy of “DAWNSLAYER.” I listened to the whole thing through twice, bothered Terry about it, bothered other people I know about it, and decided that “yeah, so you don’t normally review singles but come on it’s basically an EP there are five total songs and also Necroma,” so here we are. On to the review!

Oshi Digest #1: Lilim

Welcome to the very first celebration of Oshi Digest! Sari, the macabre painted demon of NECRONOMIDOL, was the winner of Queen of the Scene, thereby elevating her to the status of Official Oshi of Homicidols.com, a crown she will wear until she’s dethroned. Good luck, mere mortals!

So Necroma’s Risaki wasn’t the only member of the group to contribute vocals to somebody else’s project; Sari sang the chorus for this band song by this band that brings back that whole Scorpions thing that was supposed to be about Kamen Joshi:

We Interview Idols: NECRONOMIDOL

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

Into The Darkest Heart of The British Empire: NECRONOMIDOL in London

Pukovnik Krv and Kerrie hit up the NECRONOMIDOL show in London this past week, where an interview may have been conducted(!) and many photos taken. Here’s Krv’s take on the event, plus many of said photos. If you dig it, why not give my dude’s Bandcamp a look, too?

A few days have now passed since the convening of spirits that occurred one fateful night in The Smoke, rousing rowdy rambunctious rebels ’round the Sassenach lands to descend upon The Water Rats, a watering hole for the toffs. Therefore, I must drop my pompous tone to declaim in detail the shit that went down.

As the first underground Japanese idol group, to my knowledge, to host a one-man live in the UK, I was expecting there to be a decent turnout. In actuality, a crowd bigger than I’ve ever seen them draw in Japan turned out as Japanophiles, weebs, otaku and bangya flocked to the show as well as wota, leaving the place packed with a melting pot of young and old, Northern and Southern, upper and working class, and all races coming together for … Necroma?

Your Wota-ing Guide to NECRONOMIDOL in London

Show of hands: Who’s going to see Necroma tonight? It’s a lot of you! That’s friggin’ awesome. You’re lucky ducks, and I’m incredibly jealous, especially because this was shaping up to be The Year When Maniac Saw a Lot of His Favorite Idols, but things didn’t quite work out with NSLE and I don’t have the means to go all the way to Europe, so on we wait.

But you’re going! Or maybe you’d like to be vicariously going, and you’d like to be prepared for that incredible moment in time when Necroma will be right in front of you on stage. Either way, you don’t want to make an ass of yourself — these are idols! In fact, they are idols of pure darkness! You don’t just attend an idol live*, you join an idol live. Continue reading

Necroma Screamed for Vengeance and Got a New Single and More for It

Ye gods, that’s an awful title

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:

With a follow-up tour of New Caledonia to boot! “DAWNSLAYER,” though, what a title. That’s so dark and even reverse-Luciferian that I can barely stand it. Continue reading

Man, NECRONOMIDOL’s European Tour Keeps Getting More Interesting

The weirdest stuff happens sometimes, you guys, and in weird clusters.

We’ve known about Necroma hitting France and Italy this summer for a while, and it’s been pretty seriously suspected that there was more in the works than just what we knew. Ricky even kind of hinted at it during a recent twitcast.

So when Terry got wind of a London show (via), the hype machine started to heat up.

Ain’t no hype machine no more!

Get your tickets here!

But that’s not even all! Continue reading

Damn, You Guys, Necroma Had a Week

All right, partly because I feel badly about having missed out on the first of these bits of NECRONOMIDOL news in the first place and also because I wanted to gather a bunch of stuff together, I’m doing this thing a little bit weirdly.

First up! If you haven’t yet seen Necroma’s feature piece from the Bandcamp home page, you really should check it out:

The scene is infused with the playfulness of dance, twinkling piano, and elaborate costumes.

Interested in Seeing a NECRONOMIDOL Show Online? Here’s How to Get Tickets

Sharp-eyed Alex caught this ticket promo for a “secret” Necroma show — secret in the sense that the time and date will only be announced once you’ve submitted for one of the limited e-tickets, but not secret in the sense that a) you can order the tickets and b) it is stated to be an online performance.

You can order here. And remember to complete the process from the confirmation email! Continue reading
