Melding the skronk of the Cramps with the grim stylings of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Denmark's Nekromantix have been swaying suggestible American kids into the dark and decadent waters of psychobilly since 2002's debut, Night of the Loving Dead, on Hellcat Records. Prior to that, the bandmates had been active in their native land since 1989, making them already-seasoned scene vets and import-only curiosities. Since followed by two more LPs, Dead was a blistering 13-track workout featuring lead bassist and singer Kim Nekroman's trademark coffin-bass plucking and frantic howling. If you have any predilection toward acts such as the hellacious Reverend Horton Heat, you will find Nekromantix the perfect Danish counterpart. Break out the pomade and fangs, kids.
