Hold on to Your Butts for the End of the Month

NECRONOMIDOL may seem more unintentionally chaotic than usual over the past year, but they’re still going strong and are about to celebrate their seventh (!) anniversary on July 27. Not bad for a project that a lot of people not named Ricky Wilson probably thought wouldn’t make it to the stage, let alone global touring and distribution and stuff.

For that anniversary, a special video is coming our way. This is just a taste:

Entities of darkness! The underworld! Blackened thrash! This is going to be very good, gang.

Dark Idol Debut: NECRONOMIDOL Initiates Three New Members

NECRONOMIDOL debuted their new lineup last night at The Music Apocalypse, in a set sandwiched between Burst Girl and Broken By The Scream. This follows Sunday’s announcement of the addition of three new members, making the group a quintet after the recent withdrawals of Shiki Rukawa and Roa Toda.

Joining veterans Himari Tsukishiro and Nana Kamino onstage last night were: Continue reading

NECRONOMIDOL Promises Sweet, Delicious, Fiery Pain on Their New Album

NECRONOMIDOL’s new album — first full-length with the new lineup — is just days away, and you know what that means: IT’S LEAD SINGLE TIME. I know we were all kind of shocked when The Breakup happened, and then intrigued as the new group took form, and then everybody had their own opinions about “santa sangre” but this particular development, this new album, has felt like the part that we’re all most eager for. You like when Necroma dominates your soul and grants you immortality just to inflict as much agony as possible for all time, in song form!

If vämjelseriter can deliver on even a fraction of the promise in here, it’s going to be a hell of a lot of pain: Continue reading

You, Yes You, Could Be NECRONOMIDOL’s New Manager

Have you ever wanted to be part of the exciting world of music management? Ever wanted to travel the world, meet interesting people, explore new cultures, learn how to swear in foreign tongues, possibly have your soul purged from your body and cast into the Pit to be destroy to create a suitable host for some ancient demon’s return to this dimension that it may take its rightful place as ruler of our world? Then friend, have I got a job opportunity for you!

Blood in the Bathroom with NECRONOMIDOL

When NECRONOMIDOL teased this MV … good lord, was that just yesterday? yesterday, I was a tiny bit skeptical, I’ll admit. Long right in my personal tippy-top group of favorite things in music (let alone idol, but also and especially idol), Necroma felt almost inviolable, and so the big membership upheaval from earlier in the year was actually kind of hard to reckon with, and I feel like I’m still getting used to the idea. But, that being said, just as life turns to death and death to decay, all things must change, and that includes an idol group that personifies the living darkness! And so, when the thing dropped a little while ago, I held on and …

Oh hey, this is good! And of course so — Ricky didn’t suddenly stop knowing what to do when the last of the OGs left, of course the core concept and ability to meld talent to it are still there, so what the hell was I worried about? No, man, if you dig on Necroma, you’re going to dig on this. It’s just, like, a lot more gruesome than you might be used to! Continue reading

Sheer Madness: NECRONOMIDOL Graduation Turns Into All-Star Reunion

My apologies for the lateness of this article, but I am still picking up the pieces of my shattered mind.

There was nothing to prepare us back in March when Rei, Michelle and Okaki, the last remaining original member of NECRONOMIDOL, announced their departure from the group. Just as there was nothing to prepare us for the blight that has since afflicted the entire world, driving us into our homes, delaying the three members’ graduation show and, meanwhile, wholly transforming the way idol lives are both performed and delivered. 

This past Saturday night, Rei Imaizumi, Kakizaki Rizaki and Michelle were finally able to hold their long-delayed graduation live to both an in-person and streaming audience.

NECRONOMIDOL’s New Members Debut in “TUPILAQ” MV

The new members of a resurrected NECRONOMIDOL make their first appearance in “TULIPAQ”, an MV released on the virtual eve of their no-audience livestream debut.

Sole surviving NECROMA member Himari is discovered by new disciples Shiki, Nana, and Roa who instruct her in the crafting of a tupilaq: a vengeful monster created by witchcraft, given life by ritualistic chants and then set loose into the sea to seek and destroy an enemy (thanks Wikipedia!).  Continue reading

NECRONOMIDOL Awakens with Three New Members

Since mid-March, in his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu has been waiting and dreaming of the coming era when new dark disciples will emerge from the depths and spread madness to the far corners of the world once more.    

That wait is (almost) over. NECRONOMIDOL have announced they will be resuming activities in June  with three new members.

NECRONOMIDOL Announce Multiple Graduations, Hiatus and Imminent Resurrection

NECRONOMIDOL have announced the immediate graduation of  Rei Imaizumi, Michelle and original member Risaki Kakizaki.  In addition, they have cancelled all events for the next two months including their upcoming one-man on March 23 where they were to introduce new members and costumes.  The group will be on hiatus until further notice.

The word itself from Manager-san.

Okaki, Rei and Michelle will be independently hosting their own graduation live on April 27th. 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:
