I have finished adding information about the inspirations for all NECRONOMIDOL songs. Any songs not directly inspired by something will be noted that way. If a song was inspired by a story I have named it but have not given a description of the story. If based on a mythology a short description is given. If based on a real life event I have covered it more in depth.
My reasoning for not giving story descriptions is that I would like you to go read the stories yourself. I find that it gives greater enjoyment of the songs that way.
As for lyrics on any songs from NEMESIS and earlier, I do not have official English lyrics so I will not be putting any up, at least until I am able to get them.
The information can be found in individual song pages. You can get to them two ways.
Release section: https://walkinshadow.com/releases/
First performance list: https://walkinshadow.com/miscellania/songs-by-performance-date/
The first performance list does not include the festival or LAMENT CONFIGURATION. You will have to get to those songs via the release section.
It has been a while since there was a big update to the site, so I am happy to say one is happening. I am adding some further information to individual songs as relayed to me by Ricky. He has given me some basic information on inspiration and left me to fill in the blanks (detail wise).
Ricky told me that he feels in depth insights about song inspirations may ruin the enjoyment and that individuals should come to their own conclusions while experiencing the songs. Hence only basics about the songs. I have taken the liberty of providing a bit of background on some songs if based on stories of legends, that way you can go read the actual stories for yourself. I know I have gotten even more enjoyment myself from reading the stories that certain songs are based on.
There are a few songs with no express inspiration and are noted as such. These songs have been given no further explanation or detail as to their content.
At this point I have done songs up to the NEMESIS release, but more will be on the way soon.
The first 14 entries on this list have been completed.
I have added the upcoming release to the release section with all the information I have. This includes all song information as well. If I have missed anything please let me know.
I have written up a quick history of the many outfits worn during the five year career of NECRONOMIDOL. There really isn’t much to it, but I always find the changes in outfits interesting. Enjoy.
No one-offs or costume swaps included, just official outfits.
NECRONOMIODL’s Stage Outfits: A History
I have been working on bulking up the site a bit and have added a few things of interest.
- This will be a list of appearances in print, web and broadcast that I can find from more “reputable” places.
Beyond The Red
- I will add links and information about the mini movie in this area.
- Each song now has its own page, you can find them through the releases section or through the First Performance Date list.
- I have started adding flavor text about each song. So far only Tamam Shud is done but more on the way in the future.
The live history is now complete, minus a few videos of course. I will continue to search the web for more to add. The end goal is to get footage for every show possible. Yes, I know there are a couple shows with no footage at all, we will just try to forget that.
I have added pages for each song the group has done. You can get to them through the track lists on each separate release or through the Songs by First Performance Date list. That is the only way to see the listing for SALEM since it has not been released yet. If there is an MV that goes with a song and it is on the groups official YouTube, I have it linked in the song’s listing. Sorry, I did not link the version of VULTURE that is out there. You should all be able to find it easy enough if you want to see it. I do have Ricky’s reason for removing it from the official YouTube on the songs page.
I am hoping to get some lyrics up for songs that I have them for. As of this time I do not have official translations for some songs on NEMESIS and all the releases before it.
I will keep working on the site. Is there anything you are hoping to see?
I have for the most part finished the live show history for the years 2014 and 2015. There are only some small details to fill in on a few of the entries. I am still trying to track down set lists and any live footage that might be out there. If you know of any that I do not have in the history already please do let me know.
