Kim Nekroman is the bassist and lead singer for the psychobilly band Nekromantix and the lead guitarist of HorrorPops. He is married to Patricia Day, lead singer and bassist for HorrorPops. He is from Denmark, and worked for the Danish Navy as a submarine radio operator for eight years before beginning his music career.

He plays the upright bass (coffinbass) that he custom made from an actual childs-size coffin. He is also the lead guitarist and performs backing vocals for the psychobilly group led by his wife, the HorrorPops. He is an endorser and user of Gallien-Krueger bass amps.[1]

Timeline[edit]

In 1991 the band toured extensively in Europe, releasing Curse of the Coffin, their second full-length album that same year. The Brought Back to Life LP appeared in 1992, and 4 years later Nekromantix released their fourth disc, Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend. A tour in Japan followed, as well as a 1999 live set for Kick Music. Nekromantix signed with Epitaph for 2002's Return of the Loving Dead, and are still with the label through Dead Girls Don't Cry and 2005's Brought Back to Life Again, the latter of which was actually reissue of an out print 1992 release. Latest release on Hellcat is "Life is a Grave & I Dig it!".

Nekromantix[edit]

Backing up Nekroman's vocals in '07 were guitarist Troy Destroy and drummer Andy DeMize. However, the current line-up is Lux on drums (after the death of Andy DeMize), Franc on guitar and Nekroman himself on coffin-bass and lead vocals.
