Mother Fuckin Rock and Roll…
The Nekromantix are a Danish-American psychobilly band formed in 1989 in Copenhagen, Denmark and currently recording for Hellcat Records. The band’s name is a mix of the words “necromancy” and “romantics,” with an “x” in place of the ending letters “cs.” Their music is generally structured around monster, horror, and science fiction themes which are reflected in their album and song titles, lyrics, artwork, fashions, and stage show. A central icon of the band’s image is bassist/vocalist Kim Nekroman’s “coffinbass,” a custom-built double bass with a body in the shape of a coffin and a head the shape of a crucifix.
The Nekromantix’ lineup has fluctuated several times throughout their career but has always centered around bassist/vocalist Kim Nekroman, the group’s founder and sole remaining original member. Guitarist Peter Sandorff, another founding member, served two stints in the band: from its founding in 1989 until 1993, and again from 1997 to 2005. During his second stay in the band’s lineup his brother Kristian Sandorff served as drummer. Throughout the band’s first eleven years and four lineups they released five albums on various European record labels, most of which were only available internationally as imports. Their fourth lineup, consisting of Nekroman and the Sandorff brothers, proved to be their most stable and helped the group cross over to American audiences by signing to the Los Angeles-based Hellcat Records label, through which the band has released three albums since 2002.
In 2003 Nekroman relocated to Los Angeles while the Sandorffs remained in Denmark, and in 2005 the brothers left the band. They were replaced by California musicians Tröy Deströy and Andy DeMize for the band’s eighth and most recent album Life Is a Grave & I Dig It!, released by Hellcat in April 2007.
