Album review: Nekromantix- "What Happens In Hell, Stays In Hell"


Everyone's favourite undead psychobilly rockers are back with their latest release, "What Happens In Hell Stays In Hell." With frontman Kim Nekroman's distinctive vocal stylings and signature coffin-shaped upright bass, Nekromantix are ready to be the soundtrack to any party with thirteen songs about ghouls, sleepwalkers, and other things that go bump in the night.

From the opening strains of "Bats In My Pants" to the very end of "Triskaedekaphobia," Nekromantix prove why they are still one of the biggest bands of the psychobilly genre. Kim Nekroman sounds appropriately sinister as he sings about graveyards and ghouls.

What sets "What Happens In Hell Stays In Hell" apart from other psychobilly albums is that despite the fact that all of the songs have a sinister edge to them, they explore music genres well beyond psychobilly. There are the fast tracks, like "Bats In My Pants," songs with a goofier pop edge to them, like the Katy Perry inspired track, "I Kissed A Ghoul," and tracks with a country edge, like "Bela Lugosi's Star."

It's true that "What Happens In Hell Stays In Hell" doesn't exactly reinvent the psychobilly wheel, but that does not make it any less enjoyable. Rather, what you get is an undead-themed musical romp, where each song could fit in easily with everyday listening and Halloween parties alike.

Nekromantix and their unique psychobilly-meets-country sound have made it clear that what happens in hell may stay in hell, and judging by this album, the afterlife and hell sound like one great party.
