Ever heard of psychopath idols? Let’s get to know 9999.99 -count stop-, a rock idol unit made of happy psychopaths which call their fans psycho killers.
Giving a nickname to your fans is cute, but what if you decided to call them psycho killers? ABSOLUTELY cute, isn’t it? Today we’ll talk about a unit self-described as a happy group of psychopaths: let’s meet 9999.99 -count stop-.

One of the first thing I noticed is that their Twitter account has been created in 2014, but I couldn’t find anything regarding them before 2018. Maybe there is something dark hidden in their nebulous past… but I guess we have no way to know it. Back to the present, since they have recently released a MV and that’s why we are here.

Right from the start you realize this is not your average idol. Glitched guitars and vocals, a disturbing electric organ and an intense and obsessive rhythm. Yeah, that’s definitely a song made by psychopaths, for psychopaths. Just take a look at these girls destroying a room for no reason: why would a sane person do it? Nope, they’re definitely psychopaths. Happy psychopaths, to be more precise.

And here’s another video from them, in which they don’t seem possessed by madness. That raw and crunchy rock sound is still there though, albeit with a catchier and less crazy vein.

I have to say that their more psycho side is more interesting than when they are acting normal… or maybe they are acting like psychos but are actually normal girls? Maybe someday we’ll know the truth; for now, let’s enjoy the musical madness of 9999.99 -count stop-.
