Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, Nekromantix are a psychobilly outfit who harness the imagery of horror films and ghoulish monsters for their metal-infused hard-rocking psychobilly.
Formed by bassist and frontman Kim Nekroman in 1989, Kim left a career of eight years working as a submarine operator, leaving to pursue his love for music. Peter Sandorff (guitar, vocals) and Kristian Sandorff (drums) joined shortly after to form the trio. The band’s initial live performances quickly garnered attention and soon they had established an enthusiastic fan base, both in their home country and in Germany.
Nekromantix released their debut album, “Hellhound” in 1989, followed by their second, “Cure the Coffin” in 1991. The band toured extensively throughout Europe, gaining many new fans on the way. After a lineup change, their 1992 album, “Brought Back To Life,” earned the band a Grammy Award nomination for ‘Best Heavy Metal Album.’
Further European tours followed although they were soon to find international success and break into the US market, after signing a deal with Tim Armstrong’s label, Hellcat Records. 2002’s “Return of the Living Dead,” helped find the band further exposure, distributed widely in the US. Relocating to Los Angeles, their 2004 album, “Dead Girls Don’t Cry,” continued their success, with US tours following its release.
Whilst there were constant lineup changes, Kim Nekroman continued to the lead the band onwards, known for his signature coffin-snapped double bass. Their 2007 album, “Life Is a Grave & I Dig It!” gained the band their first top 40 single, peaking at number 21 on the US Heatseekers Chart. A North American tour with Reverend Horton Heat offered fans an all-star psychobilly lineup, releasing their eight album, “What Happens in Hell, Stays in Hell,” after, in August 2011.
