Yukueshirezutsurezure drop “REDERA” MV on Eve of 7th Single Release

Tomorrow, Yukueshirezutsurezure drop what they are calling a “double-A-Side” single and, if you’ve caught the song previews,  you understand the description.  “Still Roaring” and “REDERA” are two of the best tracks we’ve heard from Not Secured, Loose Ends in a while.

On the eve of this double-barreled release, they have also given us a new MV.

Ska-punk Tsurezure? Yes please.  Continue reading

NECRONOMIDOL Announce New Member Selection

NECRONOMIDOL has given us one month’s time to prepare for an expansion of their ranks. The Darkness Girls will unveil both their new member(s) and new costumes at a free live on March 23.

With the massive number of graduations and disbandments in the past year,  the list of potential NECROMA recruits is tantalizing.

Did Ricky-San draw from this deep pool of known idols, or cast brand new talent?

Is it new member or members? Will we see a five, six or thirteen member formation?

Since the announced live has a school entrance ceremony theme, will the new costumes be an ultra-dark version of seifuku? 

Let the rampant speculation begin:

Zsasz Dropped a Little Zszomething

Holy zszhit! After starting out strong with their dark take on Neverland with Peter Peter, months of teasers on Twitter and a quick YouTube drop of Shokuji/EAT, Zsasz’s digital debut is finally here!

For those not in the know, Zsasz are produced by the legendary and incredibly handsome gothic Vocaloid producer UTSU-P! Eagle eared listeners might have even heard several of their songs before, for instance the lead track on the album originally had vocals from digital diva Kagamine Rin. We at Homicidols tried to reach out to Miss Kagamine to learn how she feels about the cover of her song, but on account of her not being a real person she just didn’t want to give any comments! Celebrities can be so difficult. Continue reading

Dang, NECRONOMIDOL’s up to Some Stuff

Apologies for the so-late-it’s-just-awkwardness of the post, but I forgot that I wanted to make a big deal out of this on Friday because such is life. And what is life, even, now that we have the literally eternal — that is, existing infinitely, beyond the bounds of time and space — presence of NECRONOMIDOL looming within the shadows of existence? Worthless, that’s what it is, but the question is also rhetorical flourish and all right let’s just skip to the point.

NECRONOMIDOL, beloved and befeared like few others, revealed at the risk of inducing utter madness among their followers (or, at least, those who aren’t already under complete spiritual enslavement) some upcoming plans, and yes, I do believe that we’re all going to be happy people:

A Very Special Edition of the Mond– Tuesday Match Game

Hey, do you guys remember IRONBUNNY? I sure do, and even though I ultimately wasn’t moved to make them a proper Homicidols Big Deal, things changed when they popped up in the Western metal press:

I’ve had them on speed dial for the past week because I noticed on Twitter that they’d recorded an MV, which I took to be an almost dead certainty that we’d be getting that MV in due time, and sure enough it happened! It’s a good song, and what incredible timing, considering that I hadn’t had a chance to write up the latest BABYMETAL MV yet but still intended to do so — but would life really be best served with two separate posts about idol metal that has happened to connect to one degree or another in the West, or would things be much more fun than to smash those two things together into a single empty competition? You know the answer by now! Continue reading

HOT TAKE: BEYOOOOONDS Goes One Step Beyond Idol-Metal!

BEYOOOOONDS (with five “O”s in their name”) continue to kill it with another blast of pop goodness! For me personally, this is a group that has single-handedly injected a massive fire back into HELLO! Project with their personalities, enthusiastic spirit, and just plain incredibly fun music. Their mega-workout themed update on a 400 year-old classical piece-turned gay-rights anthem-turned football stadium rocker was a humongous winner in it’s own right, and now they’ve unleashed “HOT!”, a full-on banger of a rock tune that’s a new epic for the masses.

Now if you’re somebody who’s gotten into idol through the whole Babymetal/rock idol/or this so-called “alt” thing, you might be thinking “Man, I don’t care about this H!P stuff.” and I’m here to tell you, this is the one to get on board with. No really, turn up your volume and hit that play button….
