Necronomidol and Chiaki J. Konaka talk about their experiences with cosmic horror fandom in Japan. Is it different than in the US? (moderated by Brian Callahan)

We are extremely pleased to introduce our Guest of Honor for 2018!

Formed in 2014 NECRONOMIDOL are the dark heroines of Japan's independent idol world. Playing songs in such diverse genres as darkwave, black metal and NWOBHM and featuring strong influence from the author H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, NECRONOMIDOL boasts legions of devoted fans around the world. Based in Tokyo but playing shows in Taiwan, Thailand, New Caledonia, England, Italy, France and the US, NECRONOMIDOL plans to further their quest of world domination in the name of the Great Old Ones to even more far-flung corners of the globe in 2018!
