* {{Homage}}: To an internet creepypasta/hoax, of all things. The video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kBK33DvIoM santa sangre]]" (NSFW) appears to be based on the elusive splatter anime ''Anime/SakiSanobashi'', about a group of schoolgirls finding themselves trapped in a bathroom with no exit, eventually going stir crazy and murdering each other. Not to mention that the song itself is named after an Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky [[Film/SantaSangre movie]], and the bathroom in the video has ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'''s "brand of sacrifice" symbol painted in blood on a wall.


In early 2020 it was announced on Twitter that every member (Risaki, Rei and Michelle) except Himari would leave the group. No reasons were given for the members' departure; it was said that it was caused by an "incident" behind the scenes, but the reason will probably never be known. The management said that they were in the process of recruiting new members, and [[https://twitter.com/NECRONOMIDOL/status/1256206745443028994 the official Twitter]] revealed them, as well as a date of June 2020 for the unit's "rebirth". They are Nana Kamino, Shiki Rukawa and Toda Roa.

"rebirth". They are Nana Kamino, Shiki Rukawa and Toda Roa.

However, history repeated itself in 2021: the unit entered a hiatus since April because of Nana's health issues, Shiki's sudden graduation and Toda's commitment to her parallel solo singer-songwriter career. The management had plans to introduce a fifth member to the group, but at this point the future of Necronomidol is up in the air.

Interestingly enough, they were self-produced and the unit's founder and producer is an American man living in Japan, who, as a fan of both idols and horror, wanted to create an idol unit themed around the paranormal: by all accounts, he succeeded. Unusually for a Japanese idol group, they also toured several times in Europe and the US, building a nice following for what is a ''very'' niche product.

Necronomidol, the ultra-dark idol unit, was founded in mid-2014 as an example of an ''alt-idol'' group that is DarkerAndEdgier even among other alternative idols, as opposed to the usual IdolSinger tropes. Their initial output consisted in a blend of traditional Japanese folk music and aesthetic with BlackMetal; later on, they began to incorporate other metal genres and other styles such as DarkWave and {{Synthwave}}, for a catchier sound that still mantains the general somber attitude. Their imagery is influenced by, other than the aforementioned BlackMetal's visuals, the occult, Japanese and Western horror tropes and (as their name implies) the Franchise/CthulhuMythos.
