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 debut Night of the Loving Dead on Hellcat Records. Prior to that, the band 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 towards Texas's own hellacious Reverend Horton Heat, you will find Nekromantix their perfect Danish counterpart. Break out the pomade and the fangs, kids.
