NECRONOMIDOL is one of the groups that grabbed most attention in the new wave of Alternative Idol units that hit the Japanese industry. More than any other unit, the five girls heavily implemented influences from Black, Death and Power Metal in their sound, all merged together with Idol pop sonorities. Their art direction follows this style as well… KHOLAT SYAKHL is probably one of the MVs I loved the most last year, and a clear showcase of the wonderful style of these girls.
That said, I was glad to know that NECRONOMIDOL will be back with a new EP titled from chaos born, featuring six new tracks and set to be released on June 15 physically in Japan, and internationally through iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and pretty much every other digital delivery platform. You can check out some samples of the new tracks on the group’s official website. I like what I’m hearing so far, so I have good expectations for this.
This cover kicks ass. Not casually, since it was made by legendary manga artist Toshio Maeda (best known as the creator of Urotsukidoji and La Blue Girl). The girls from NECRONOMIDOL surely know how to promote themselves properly.
You will find a review of the from chaos born EP in the next days here on the blog. In the meanwhile, the girls are getting ready for their biggest show to date at Ebisu Liquidroom, where they will perform the new songs for the first time. Tickets are already available, in case you’re one of the lucky fans that lives in Japan and can attend the concert.
Stay tuned for more!
