The story of the Nekromantix began back in 1989 ; the band was founded by Kim Nekroman, who just had left the Royal Danish Navy after 8 years in the submarines. After two local danish shows, the band appeared on a big festival in Hamburg, Germany, only six month after their first rehearsal session. This resulted in a record deal for the first Nekromantix release Hellbound.
By that time the psychobilly scene was mainly dominated by british bands, and world-wide psycho fans welcomed the Nekromantix new and different psychobilly style. The music is best described in terms like "Elvis meets the Wolfman", add punk attitude and spice it up with a universe of monster movies lyrics. Outrageous wildness on stage plus their trademark, the hardcore-slapping coffin shaped upright bass, the guys have proved that it is allowed to have fun.
After heavy touring all over Europe the Nekromantix released Curse of the Coffin in 1991. The same titled low budget video was shown several times on MTV's "Alternative Nation". This classic album was to become an influence for new bands for the years to come.
The follow-up album Brought back to Life, in 1994, resulted in the only psychobilly band ever being nominated for a Grammy Award, followed by a tour in Japan. It is considered by many as their masterpiece and as a perfect album.
The fourth album, the critically acclaimed Demons are a Girl's Best Friend, was released in 1996 and the Nekromantix appeared in the news on Danish national TV, followed by several European festival appearances and tours.
Their fifth real album was the awaited live album, Undead Live, which includes all on stage favorite tunes. As it was said by Kaptain Zorch, "they obviously care about their music, and go to great pains to reproduce their recorded sound live on stage".
The sixth album, name here, was produced and released in the USA, with still the same philosophy than the others. Why the USA ? It is still a great mystery, but some have their own idea about it. A kind of "successful career achievement" parody, or maybe just not to do like the Stray Cats... Unless it was just a good deal for them, who knows ? Even the band doesn't !
Despite the fact that all their albums has been low budget recordings released on small independent labels and that absolutely no money was spent for promoting, the Nekromantix have achieved world-wide acceptance and been touring Japan, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Finland, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, France, Spain and Denmark.

my big brother got me into loving Nekromantix, as well as other pyschobilly bands. if you listen to them loud enough, its like feeling your inner Psycho emerge, causing a massive concentration of Awesome to erupt from your veins. the face-shattering guitar combined with the thumping stand-up base creates a lethal musical experience. they're ugly motherfuckers, but they're one of my favorite bands.

Nekromantix are one of the best bands around right now. Their hard hitting beats and kick ass melodys make them a great band to wreck to. I would recomend seeing them in the near future. They make for one hell of a night.
