Biography

Nekromantix is one of the premier psychobilly bands in the world�a live juggernaut whose shows and albums are a guaranteed good time. None of that changes on Life Is A Grave�& I Dig It!!!, but they�re just not the same band. Antithetic to their horror aesthetic, they�ve changed into something�better.

For nearly a decade, Nekromantix wrecked across ... Read more in Amazon's Nekromantix Store

Ok, this album is probably their best album... It is kind of hard to pick one.
Travis Cupp
Other stand out tracks for me were Gargoyles Over Copenhagen, Murder For Breakfast(a very funny song), Necronomicon, and Haunted Cathouse(my favorite song on the cd).

Ok, this album is probably their best album... It is kind of hard to pick one. Return of the Loving Dead has everything. This album stays true to the psychobilly genre. They are still extremes in that area. Unlike Curse of the Coffin, Nekromantix did not try too hard and over do the psycho image (although i do not regret buying Curse of the Coffin). Nekroman is a beast on his bass, and the lyrics are great. The songs on this album are all in the same catagory, but somehow they cover a variety of feelings. When you are in the mood to just kinda rock out, there are songs that are very appealing, when you wanna hear/see something messed up and twisted... Oh yeah, you can get that on this album. And if you are in the mood for just moderation, there are a few songs for that, or you can basically just turn the volume down a little, except on the twisted ones!The album has some good length to it, and i would reccoment this album, and actually gaurentee that you will like it if you like bands such as, Tiger Army, Horrorpops, Nekromantix (duh), Koffin Kats, and The Misfits. If you ever liked any of the Nekromantix albums... then get this one. You will become a Nekro fan for life. If Nekromantix is new to you, then you might want to sample a few of their songs first (Who Killed The Cheerleader, Hellcat, Subculture Girl, and Nekronomicon... that should cover some of the variety)

Honestly... Get the album

If you have any questions regarding the album you can e-mail me at tcupp@recupp.com

I bought this album in August of 2005 at a record store in Banff, just browsing the store and looking for something that I thought I would like. I saw this album sitting among racks and racks of other albums and it stood out because I remembered listening to 'Gargoyles Over Copenhagen' on an Epitaph promo cd, a song which grew to be one of my all time favorites. However, now my taste for this band has grown to encompass not only to allow me to enjoy simply one or two tracks, but simply the entire disc.

This album is quite simply a masterpiece. Nekromantix have an instantly recognizable, signature sound that is supplied by the dark, evil vocals of lead singer Kim Nekroman as well as the 'CoffinBase' that he also plays. This combination of instruments and vocals creates a band that sounds something like The Clash straight from the '50s. This entire album reeks of nostalgia from B grade horror movies and mid-'50s Rockabilly. However, this album is simply great, insanely high-energy punk rock with a country-esque flair. Although the album may be very high energy, it is also very accessible to the average listener who wants to get into the heavier side of punk. An excellent, all-round buy.

Standout tracks:

Nice Day for a Resurrection

Subcultural Girl

Gargoyles Over Copenhagen

Trick Or Treat

Murder For Breakfast

Haunted Cathouse*

Now, I'm gonna have to disagree with many psychos out there when I say that this album is pretty darn good! I love these kings of psycho just as much as any other psycho out there and i'm gonna have to say that this album is one of there best and it comes pretty close to rivaling curse of the coffin and hellbound. I don't think they got watered down at all and actually think that this hellcat release is really gonna help to get the gospel of psycho out to all my fellow american teens and psychos who don't know what there missing. I love this album and its a hell of a lot better than Demons are a Girls Best friend.

This is some of the better psychobilly out there. Like the review title says, this is like some marriage made in hell of the Misfits (Glenn Danzig-era) and the Stray Cats. The geetar is both twangy and thunderous. Each track is good; hard to pick out a favorite. This is also my first exposure to NEKROMANTIX, so I can't comment on their other albums. Highly recommended, get this or be fed upon by the Loving Dead!

Nekromantix are the perhaps the most underated band ever. They are a truly talented band and are one of the greatest bands it has been my pleasure to listen to! The true quality of the Nekromantix is a force to be reckoned with, and this is shown to the highest standard possible on their latest album 'The Return of the Loving Dead'. With their sound most oftenly reffered to as Psychobilly, Nekromantix took this genre of music to new levels, mainly by changing the original formula of Psychobilly and creating their own unique style and sound that sounded more punk and gothic.

Much like the Misfits, Nekromantix base the themes of their songs around their fascination with Horror films. Return Of the Loving dead is a rare album for the main reason that every song is as good as the last, a rare find in any album & once again proving how talented and powerful this band really are. Who Killed the cheerleader is a perfect song in every way possible, sick & clever lyrics, screaming guitar solos, pacy drumlines and a pulsing bassline. Trick or Treat is a very clever song and is all about my favourite event of the year, Halloween. Haunted Cathouse has one of the greatest endings to a song ever, so amazing it sends a chill down my spine every time i listen to it. These songs are nothing short of amazing...

Return Of the Loving Dead proves that Nekromantix have now reached the height of their long lived career. Return of The Loving Dead is much like a great horror movie, Its clever, thrilling, fun and leaves you wanting more.
