Q:
Hi Anders, I check the Nasum - page almost every day hoping for news on a possible dvd-release of the concert film. I'm from Germany so I didn't have the chance to see it yet. Anything planned for the future with the film? I was on the farewell tour and liked it a lot. Would be cool to refresh memories again. Maybe you do a limited box including dvd and concert on vinyl ;-)
All the best!
Harry
A:
Keep watching... :) / Anders

Q:
hello Anders,
Here Geert from Belgium. Sorry it's not a nasum question, but maybe you can help me to find a connection with a member of Genocide superstars. I'm looking for the lyrics of 'hail the new storm' cd.
tanx and cheers
Geert
A:
I'm sorry Geert, but apparently there are no proper lyrics to the album. You can make up your own! :) / Anders
Question from David (IP: 181.112.219.39) posted August 8, 2016 23:48:49:
Q:
Hello Anders! I want to know something... Why you can´t relive Nasum again with the last line up (2012) reunion 20 th anniversary? but in permanent way... that was so fantastic! Rotten Sound, Sayyadina, Burst members and great musicians. Fans of Nasum love their music, i know that´s a Utopia but why Not???

Greetings from Ecuador
A:
Because Nasum ended as a band October 6, 2012. I would love to play with the other guys any day, but we all got other stuff to do, other bands to play in, so no more Nasum or "band with all the Nasum members"... / Anders

Q:
What chord progressions do you guys use in your music? Like the ones that are slow & crushing for death metal.
A:
Nothing unusual really, although the drop-a tuning we used made it easy to play very harmonic chords every now and then without to much hassle. / Anders

Q:
Tjena.
Finns det någon chans att vi kommer att se reissues av Necrony?
/Wilhelm
A:
Varken jag eller Rickard är faktiskt speciellt sugna på det. Intresset från bolag saknas inte - känns som det är någon ny som frågar var och varannan månad, men som sagt, där finns inte riktigt på våra önskelistor. / Anders

Q:
Hi Anders,
I do believe there was a post a couple of years ago showcasing 4-5 instrumental only songs. Most likely a session or so. Unfortunately I am no longer able to find that and was wondering if its still up on the website or if I can retain these songs somehow. Thank you! \m/
A:
Here you go. It was the result of a session Urban, Jon and I had back in 2005. / Anders
Question from Kostas (IP: 2.84.116.104) posted December 26, 2014 20:04:18:
Q:
Hi Anders i'm a fan of nasum for more than 7 years now but something came to my attention lately which i can't just ignore like it never happened ...

Seriously what's up with the celtic cross Nasum t-shirt man ? can you give an actual explanation about it because the answer you gave to Jordan J doesn't seem clear to me.

Do you have any connections with nationalism ? Because all that years i was under the impresion that nasum are against these kind of stuff ...

I know that the t-shirt was pulled off immediately after it's release and that shows that you've realised that a lot of people can take it the wrong way (which is justified if you ask me) but what was the logic behind it anyway ?
A:
The t-shirt was designed and printed by Relapse, and yes, I approved the design. However I wasn't aware of the, let's say "negative use" of that particular symbol.

"Do you have any connections with nationalism ? Because all that years i was under the impresion that nasum are against these kind of stuff ..." Although I think this question is really stupid, I also believe the circumstances makes it justified, so to answer it: of course we have NO connections WHAT SO EVER to nationalism, other than that the subject have been on the receiving end in a number of lyrical bashings on the albums ("The Idiot Parade" being the obvious example).

It's unfortunate that the t-shirt was made, and it's not on the market any longer. / Anders
Question from Arnold (IP: 46.194.131.66) posted November 22, 2014 01:40:30:
Q:
Vilken låt var det tänkt att ni skulle köra på P3 galan innan Mieszko dog?. Minns att det skulle vara en annan version av den låten iaf.
A:
P3 och Burning Heart ville att vi skulle spela "Wrath" i och med att vi hade gjort video på den, men vi ville grinda. Dock fanns det ett tidsspan att fylla ut och vi hade repat in en förlängd version av "Circle of Defeat" där vi helt enkelt slängde på de inledande grindpartierna en gång till där låten ursprungligen slutade. / Anders

Q:
Tja,

en användare på YouTube som går under namnet "Siegfried Productions"
hävdar att han gör någon slags live-clip sammanställning av den sista turnén som ni gjorde. Han skickar därför ut förfrågningar till personer som lagt upp klipp från era sista spelningar på YouTube där han förfrågar ifall man kan skicka klippen till honom i original.

Han hävdar att han gör detta på uppdrag av er. Stämmer det?
A:
Japp. / Anders

Hej!

Det ligger en "Pathological Performances"-vinyl ute på Tradera för tillfället. Är det en officiell release eller bootleg? Står att det är Poserslaughter som har släppt den, men hittar ingen vidare info via google... Har du eventuellt mer info?
A:

Hi Anders! I'm a big Nasum vinyl freak/collector and I just want to ask you that is there any possible way to order the domedagen 7" in each version as one pack?
Ps.: I can say that it was the greatest moment in my life when we (Freedom Is A Lie) played as a local support band in Budapest/Hungary with you guys!

Q:
Om man letar efter Shift-CDn, men inte hittar den under merchandise här, är det ett ganska dött lopp då eller?
A:
I betydelsen att vi inte säljer den, ja. Men det finns ju vanliga skivbutiker och distros som har den. / Anders

Tjena Anders !
What do you think of Neaera´s cover of "Shadows" ?
A:
I choose not to comment on specific cover versions, but my general feeling is that I am very flattered for being an inspiration for some other band. / Anders

Q:
Hur många kassetter gjordes av Domedagen? Har du någon aning om vad man får ge för ett ex i dagens läge?
A:
Jag har ingen som helst aning. Den pressades aldrig upp av någon firma, utan vi kopierade kassetter själva efter bästa förmåga. Så jag har faktiskt ingen aning, och det är dessutom väldigt svårt att avgöra om ett exemplar på marknaden är ett "original" eller en "kopia". / Anders
Question from Nils (IP: 85.227.159.191) posted January 25, 2013 02:55:18:
Q:
Hallå, Anders. Jag har alltid undrat varför ni stämde upp gitarrerna från A-drop till B#-drop mellan Helvete och Shift?
A:
Det har att göra med att Mieszko och Urban upplevde att A-drop inte riktigt fungerade live. Tydligheten försvann, så då blev det B#-drop live och så följde det med in i studion. Det var B#-drop under farvälturnén också. / Anders
Question from Joey (IP: 68.49.165.241) posted January 19, 2013 03:02:39:
Q:
Is it true you guys play riff and drum parts at fast tempos like say 150
A:
I have no idea. I haven't bothered to meassure the speed and find that kind of "extreme sport" mentality in grindcore pretty uninteresting. / Anders

Q:
How do you guys feel about electronic dance music? Do you guys like it or do think its killing music with its pop image? And what bands do like suck or do you think American metal or any metal needs a change?
A:
Well, as most any other music style electronic (dance) music has a mainstream and an underground, so no matter what the mainstream does the underground remains the same. As for any modern metal, I think we've had enough of breakdowns by now... / Anders

Question from Josh (IP: 82.113.121.99) posted October 13, 2012 19:46:05:
Q:
Hey,

Anders, I just went to the previously asked questions like I do at some times. I became more than annoyed when I read was this user named Olive wrote, meaning you would try to make money out of Nasum and its destiny. I have seen you on one of the last shows of Nasum in 2004 and two times on the farewell dates. This were some of the best times in my life. You know, I love to see people playing great music with a big message like you do. And I know your attitude, its my attitude. This is what I enjoy so much.
So what I want to say is that Nasum is definitly NOT about to make money. I can totally understand your decision when it comes to the farewell tour and everything else. This has definitly not been a tour to raise profit, this has been a tour to give the spirit of Nasum some last great times. And the same counts for Grind Finale, the compilation and everything else which happened after 2004. Anders, I, and I think 99,99% of the people know that. So fuck this dude.
Thanks so much, Anders!

And heres one last question: Do you have leftover Merch from the Farewell tour which you will put online? Unfortunatly I did not have enough money with me at the Tivoli show to buy a baseball shirt.
A:
Thanks. Yes, there are some leftover merch that will be put up online soon, but it's mostly odd sizes and not all of the designs we had on the tour. I'm sorry to say that there isn't a single copy of the baseball shirt left among the leftovers... / Anders
Question from Felix Forsgren (IP: 90.230.25.119) posted October 8, 2012 20:45:36:
Q:
tjenare! har länge undrat om låten "söndermald" från "industrislaven" är gästad av någon annan sångare eller om ni bara lagt effekt på sången? och föresten, går det fortförande att få tag i era gamla demos och LPs?
A:
Du har lyssnat på CD:n förstår jag, där två låtar i mitten blivit samma "nummer"... "Söndermald" är den tunga instrumentala låten som är sist, sen kommer "Revolution II" som är låten "Revolution" igen fast med pitchad sång som inte sjunger någon text alls. Bara en rolig sak i studion. Gammalt jox finns möjligen att hitta begagnat, men inte nytt. / Anders

Q:
Anders! I had a question I forgot to ask Keijo personally when I saw you guys in Seattle. Does he know how to speak Swedish? Seeings how you guys play songs like Löpandebandsprincipen, Den Svarta Fanan, etc... Just thought it would be interesting to know, seeings how Finnish & Swedish don't come across as sounding the same at all..

Also, Cheers for adding me to the Tattoo blog! :)
A:
Swedish and Finnish is two completely different languages that comes from different roots. However, there are some Swedish speaking parts of Finland and for some reason some people in Finland learn to speak Swedish. Keijo and our Finnish crew know some Swedish but don't really know how to speak it. Some times Keijo speaks Swedish and he seriously sounds like the backwards speaking dwarf in "Twin Peaks". Very funny. But never the less he can sing the few Swedish songs we play. / Anders

There are no presales as it's a free show. The only way to guarantee a "ticket" is to be there in good time. / Anders

Q:
Who knows, this logo might find future usages? There'll definitely be no more shows, or albums (though, honestly, I wouldn't mind a compilation or two, or maybe even a DVD, to come out), but there would definitely be more Nasum tattoos!

I'll send an EPS version of it to the nasum@nasum e-mail. Also, I might try to do a full typeface (font), hope you wouldn't mind?
A:
Well, I have most of the letters in the "Nasum alphabet" already and might do something once all this touring is over, so thanks - but no thanks. / Anders

Q:
One more question - would flags be allowed at the London concert? Tried to search for info for this specific venue, but nothing surfaced.

And one more thing, if you want a vector of this, just tell me where to send it. ;) It is a Cyrillic Nasum logo that I've made.

http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/5165/nasumlogocyrillicwhite.png
A:
Don't know about flags. That is a venue question. We wouldn't mind, but I'm not sure that most of the audience will enjoy a flag in their face.

Thanks for the logo. I actually have made something similar myself when some possible Russian shows were under discussion. But you version was better! / Anders

Q:
I fucking hate to "ask" for songs, guys, and I won't, so I'll just tell you that I managed to hear some fan recordings (oh, yes, I admit that I did) of "The Final Sleep" from this tour, and it fucking rocked. I know that this tour isn't about Mieszko but about Nasum as a whole (or at least that's how I think about it), yet I really hope to hear this one when you hit London; it is a fucking golden tribute to Mieszko.

See you in London.

And a side question, can you tell me the average price for most of the tees, 'cause I'm a broke student who's not even living in London, and I really don't wanna bring a lot of money to the venue; just what I'd spent for the night.
A:
It's fully legit to yell out your songs of choice during the shows... Just saying... I guess the average price will be €15, i.e. something like £10 in London... / Anders

Hej Jesper,

would it be possible for you to let us have the back side of the Inhale/Exhale CD as high-res? You know, the gasmask people and the Gondol. I made a real sexy wallpaper back in '99 but I have lost it and my original CD is in my old country still... Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I don't have that particular image in any high res format at the moment. Perhaps you can borrow the cover from someone and scan it? / Anders

Question from Cyril Wright (IP: 76.195.60.226) posted August 6, 2012 00:19:34:
Q:
Dear Anders, will there be any new merchandise such as patches/backpataches to made and sold? Would you be up to do an interview via phone call, videochat etc. after your tour is over? And final question: I was thinking of making a DVD documentary on the history of Nasum 1992-2012. I would have to meet up with all the members of the band or at least the ones I can get a hold of. I have some ideas for that I would like to discuss with you about. Your show in Los Angeles at The Black Castle was great. You are all swell guys. Thank you for putting out great music and doing a final farewell for the fans :)

Mosh it up and grind the world.
A:
We'll try our best to have patches and other smaller stuff for the final European tour as well as some new t-shirts and perhaps something else. You can contact our press contacts for interviews and such. We already have some ideas for DVD documentation, but that remains to be seen if there will be something or not. / Anders

Hi Anders, I'm from Ecuador, and luckily a could arrange a work visit to France and saw you guys at hellfest. Nasum has been really important for my music and you guys are immortal for me. Anyways man, do you have any plans to press the Nasum discography in vinyl sometime??
A:
Relapse were supposed to put out some reissues on vinyl a couple of years ago, but I don't know what happened with that... / Anders

Question from Ingmar Versolmann (IP: 212.183.71.110) posted July 23, 2012 12:07:14:
Q:
ok. as you stated in some previous announcement, NASUM won't continue after the farewell tour. i saw you twice so far (and it was great!) so i think it would be cool if you 5 guys (anders, jesper, urban, jon and keijo) start a new grindcore-band. is there any serious discussion between the NASUM_2012 members on this thought? you 5 guys sum up musically the great mix within the spectrum of grindcore ranging from crust-ideas from SAYYADINA, gore-ideas from REGURGITATE, hardcore-ideas from BURST, and (more or less) death metal-ideas from ROTTEN SOUND and grind-idead from NASUM!!!!
A:
No, that will not happen. Most importantly: we all have "real" bands to focus on once this Farewell tour is over and it would be impossible for us to start a new grindcore band as it would be seen as a continuation of Nasum and people would obviously demand Nasum songs live and so on. I will not rule out that some of us will play together again in some form, but a new band with this line-up is totally out of the question. / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders, how long will you continue milking the Mieszko-death-machine? Meaning, after the comp, the r€union, the far€w€££ tour, the new m€rchandi$€ and $o on and $o on... all as an excuse for Mieszko's memory : when will you REALLY put Nasum to rest?
A:
First of all: fuck you for bringing Mieszko's death into this question. Did you know him? Was he a friend of yours? No? Second of all: Nasum is my creation, I am the remaining founding member (and has been since 1995) and it's been a part of my life for more than half of my life and something I've put down more hours into than anything else, simply because there are thousands of people enjoying our music. They are still doing it and they will keep on doing once the final show is played October 6th. And what I do in the future to maintain Nasum is nobody's business than mine. Third of all: this is not a reunion, it has never been, and it's not about Mieszko. Fourth of all: Add as many Euro and Dollar signs you want, but you don't know shit about our economy. Don't like it? Don't go to the shows, don't buy the records, don't buy the t-shirts. / Anders

Q:
Hi, I'm thrilled to hear about you coming to play Helsinki, but quite sad that we don't get Black Breath or Skitsystem. Therefore, I was thinking of also coming for the final show at Debaser Medis. As it's a free-of-charge show, is the only way to surely get in to be waiting in front of the place early enough? Any idea what time the doors will open, and how many people the venue holds? I was thinking of also attending the Sweden Rock Cruise, which should arrive in Stockholm at 18:15 on the same day, but not sure if that would be early enough...
A:
Yes, there are no pre-sales for Debaser Medis as it's a free show (actually free until 21.00, but it's quite likely that the place will be "sold out" by then). It's a 800 capacity club, so there should be space left after the Sweden Rock Cruise is over. I would expect that you are not the only one from that ship that wants to come to the show. Doors are at 19.00 according to the website: http://www.debaser.se/kalender/8313/. / Anders

Q:
Tjena, Anders. Har en fråga angående mixningen av Shift som du kanske kan svara på. Vad jag förstått så spelar både Urban och Mieszko kompgitarrer på skivan, men hur har de fördelats i stereopanoreringen? Samsas de med både höger och vänster högtalare eller ligger de mixade i varsin och i sånna fall, vem spelar i höger och vem i vänster?
A:
Vad jag minns så spelade de in varsin första- och andragitarr på de låtar båda spelar på. På minst hälften av plattan har Mieszko lagt alla gitarrer och bas av den enkla anledningen att vi bara repade halva skivan med fullt band. Å andra sidan har Urban lagt alla stränginstrument på "Creature" som han skrev och som aldrig repades över huvud taget. / Anders

Or is it possible to get Tickets for one Day for the Extremefest in Austria? Looks like this is the only date i´m able to go to by now.
A:
The answer to your first question is yes, just stay tuned... As for Extremefest - they are a traveling one-day-festival thing so the ticket for Austria is for just that day. I jumped the gun there - Extremefest is a festival with rotating bands and I don't know if they sell day-tickets. / Anders

Q:
Hi Nasum,

I would like to ask you Anders, what type of china and ride you use on the album inhale/exhale? mainly that china sounds as a cymbal I was always looking for.

thanks for reply

best wishes :)
A:
Dude, it's been 13 years since "inhale/exhale" and I can't remember what I had then. I can say this much though: it was a Sabian china. My brand of choise has always been Zildijan, except for the china where I've always used a Sabian.

Also note - as I always says when it comes to questions about particular sounds - that the cymbal has been recorded through a microphone, and processed in several ways until it ended up on the record, so it's slightly difficult to judge a cymbal by how it sounds on a record... / Anders

Q:
It's been 6 years since that fateful day, but it seems to me yesterday ... I well remember,having had a bad feeling that something bad would happen .. yes is the usual things that we say and nothing changes, I know. . but the bitterness I felt when I saw the site closed and especially when I understund of what happened was infinitely,you were the band more interesting for me ... anxiety assails me still, especially listening to songs like "Darkness Falls"from the last album that takes me back many personal memories and nostalgia, and it seems to interpret the sadness of the event .. but However it is like as you were still,like that time has stopped,many tells you,but I repeat,thank you for this site,for what you've been and will continue to be!Your music is still alive! ..Some question:
1)You ever played the song "Ros"live?I search from the video in this site and all in Youtube but nothing,i'd like to listen it also in low quality.
2)There is a remote possibility in the future to review you and the other ex-members together, with you under voice,even for once,for one last concert? would be great..
3)In an interview,you say that after Grind Finale"There’s nothing more to release (although a picture disc release of “Shift” would be great to complete the collection, but I don’t think that will happen)",exactly what you're talking about?what is this possible picture disc?
4)There is something material from "shift" that you can still publish(in another interview you talk about some unfinished song from shift session)will never come out completed?
5)I know that the name"Nasum"is take from a film,and from a a temporary name become final.What were other possible names(if
you had thought,at that time).
A:
1. "Ros" was never played live.
2. My voice is not fit for any live shows...
3. The three first albums were released as picture discs shortly after the demise of the band, and "Shift" was still such a "new" album that a picture disc would interfere with the sales of the normal vinyl edition. It was always a dream to have the albums complete on picture discs, but there are currently no plans to release "Shift" in that format.
4. There might be some unfinished and/or lost songs from many of the recordings, but everything that can and will be published is on the albums and "Grind Finale".
5. Wow, I don't recall any other possible band names. I think it always was Nasum. / Anders

Q:
Hey there, Anders!
Its been a long time since I've last said anything on here.
I always had stated that I would get something "Nasum" related tattooed on my body, and a few days ago it came true.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v202/firesparkz01/76981_471884757299_512877299_5428689_8192275_n.jpg

Ive said it before, and will say it again that Nasum changed my life after hearing such excellent music. To show my appreciation and love for the music you & Mieszko were able to create in such short time, I figured this would show it. Shift seemed to grow on me a lot more recently over the millions of times I've listened to it, and those symbols, I felt were meaningful and interesting. There you have it, I don't know how to sum up the rest.. other than I fucking love Nasum, and always will!

What do you think of it? :)

Q:
Hi there Anders. Hope all is well.
I've been ruminating over this for some time..
But are there any meanings attached to the four symbols which make an appearance on the cover of 'Shift'?

With the exception of the symbol for recycling..

Take care!
Scott
Cape Town, South Africa.
A:
To keep it simple, all the symbols represent different kind of subjects connected to Nasum's lyrics and the overall political themes. The first one is kind of a sun, the second one is kind of tricky, but I think it's a take on globalization and the last is the biohazard symbol. The artist had a really good explaination of all the symbols but it's nowhere to be found now. / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders, this question is actually about Genocide Superstars: Do you know how many different shirt designs the band had? I own a white one with an imperial eagle and crossed scythes, if memory serves me right that particular design was also on sale one Nasum site. I always wondered if there were more shirts printed.
Thanks and best regards, Ulrich.
A:
There was a black version of the same design printed at the same time. I also remember a 3/4-shirt, you know a white shirt with slightly longer black sleeves made with one of their logos before that. I can't remember if there were any other designs prior to that. / Anders

Q:
Enjoying the live Doombringer CD and wondered what distortion pedal Mieszko used live DS-1, Boss Hm-2 or just the distortion from the amp

Thanks for any answers as I know it was awhile go for these shows
A:
I can't remember exactly, but as the Japanese promotor rented whatever stuff we wanted (go, Japanese promotor!) I guess we got the Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier and it's very possible that the amp's distortion was used. If not, it was the Mesa Boogie Preamp that was Mieszko's main distortion pedal from "Helvete" and to the end. / Anders

Q:
Hi, Anders! I have following question. Relapse records has posted Nasum t-shirt "Terror" with celtic cross on its front side. As we know this symbol usually associates with fascism. But I'm sure that Nasum is far from fascist theory. So what sence have you put in such t-shirt design?
A:
I just answered this. As replied then, this symbol - as many others, have been used in many different ways, and it's pretty obvious that it's not used in this case to promote fascism. / Anders

Q:
Hey there, Anders.

Its been quite sometime since I've approached you with my latest question, but the new Nasum t-shirt, "Terror", had brought something to my attention.

After a discussion with a friend of mine, he mentioned that the use of the "sun symbol" on the t-shirt has a strong tie with Nazism and white-power ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_cross ).

I'm sure this was meant to mock its previous history, but I was wondering what your thoughts were behind it, and if you were involved in the design at all?
A:
Well, according to the wikipedia link you attached a sun cross is "a cross inside a circle", which is not the case with the "Terror" design. And according to the same article I wouldn't say the tie is particulary "strong" to nazism/white-power... I prefer the musical reference: "In modern music tablature the sun cross can denote a change of guitar from an acoustic tone to a Distortion tone", which works with the song "Fight terror with terror" that is the basis of the shirt title and quoted lyrics in the print. I approved the design. / Anders

Q:
Tjenare!

Var det något album ni lade ner extra mycket tid på texterna eller blev det oftast så att texterna helt enkelt var en biprodukt av sången? Jag tycker att texterna till låtarna på 'Shift' är väldigt bra, därav frågan.

Riktningarna ni tog, var de medvetna eller periodvisa? Satte ni er ner och sa att nu jävlar skulle ni göra si och så eller kom det naturligt?
A:
Mja, jag tror att det skedde gradvis när vi började förstå att vi hade en publik. Personligen tyckte jag att det var enklare att skriva texter med jämnare kvalitet när vi inte hade så sjukt många låtar på skivorna, hehe... Själva textskrivningsprocessen var lite olika mellan mig och Mieszko. Jag satt hemma och filade, medan han skrev i studion i princip när han skulle spela in sången. Funkade bra, båda varianterna.

Jag skulle inte säga att den musikaliska utvecklingen var planerad eller uttänkt. Det enda jag kan minnas är att när det var dags för "Human 2.0" så var vi lite medvetna om vilka olika typer av låtar vi behövde skriva. / Anders

Question from steven.. (IP: 75.94.31.71) posted February 5, 2010 10:17:29:
Q:
dear anders,

2 questions(if you have the time):

1) did mieszko take any courses on enigneering? or was it an intrest or something he picked up during recording sessions?

2) is it absolutley neccesary to take classes to be an engineer? i have little exp. in recording live instruments, but moderate in mixing/producing and trying to master hip hop and electronic stuff(basically using programs w/ plugins, mixing boards for certain channels, local studios for vocal tracks etc.)

i have full confidence in reaching my goal of recording/mixing other artists (esp grind/death), as well as future projects of my own..long story short im trying to get the ball rolling as soon as possible and what better to ask than one of the groups that inspired me the most(meisko's mixing techniques for his vocals in helvete are superb). after searching around the q&a, i couldn't find an answer to any of em...
A:
1. Yes, he was in school for about a year learning the basic stuff, but I also think he had a natural talent for it. I can't really remember that he had a real interest in the subject in question before he took that course.

2. I think that it won't hurt to learn the basics through a course of some sort. Again, it's a matter of talent. I got neither any skills nor talent for sound engineering so it's just some pointless trial and error that's going on when I try to mix and shape the sound. Recording is easy, editing is easy, but mixing is something else. / Anders

Q:
Anders, can you imagine going back to the bassguitar including singing? With another band or project. Someday, somehow?
I mean your vocals were also very special to a lot of people. When I think back to Inhale/Exhale... This was fucking brutal. They were truly intensive and kinda independent. Argh, I am looking for the right word which should replace "independent". Brainfuck. But I think you know what I mean.
Cheers!
A:
Unless it's a band playing really simple music I would not consider playing any string instrument again. I'm quite happy being able to compose songs but I'm too sloppy to play the guitar or the bass for real.
Doing more vocals will never happen though. I was just lucky that I managed to record a few decent lines here and there as I lack any sort of technique for singing. / Anders

Q:
And one more question that I'm curious about. During the first eight years or so there was much more growling than screaming in the music of Nasum. But after about 1999 there was almost no growling, but there was much of screaming instead. So I wonder if it was a consious decision of yours to use more screaming, or it naturally came without much considering?
P.S. Not sure that no one asked this before, but thank you for spending time on reading this, anyway.
A:
It had to do with us starting to play live and couldn't do the dual vocals we had had on most of the records, so Mieszko obviously became the lead singer. / Anders

What the fuck happened to your life and dreams?
A struggle for something unreachable and slippery
Your skin is whipped, it's beaten so it hurts
All this fucking stress drowns your life in black

What? Are you supposed to lie down and die?
Burnt out, wasted and totally run down
- Throw out the corpse, waste the shit!
Is this the thanks you will get?
Wear and waste, wear and waste - bring on the next slave

- You have to produce, concentrate, feel no guilt
You feel their eyes, you always feel the preasure
And your motivation is golden watch
Consumed by time, a slave under the stress

What? Are you supposed to lie down and die?
Burnt out, wasted and totally run down
- Throw out the corpse, waste the shit!
Is this the thanks you will get?
Wear and waste, wear and waste - bring on the next slave

What happened to your life? - Burnt out!
What happened to your life? - Run down!
The stress took over your life!

Question from Jordan J. (IP: 74.210.12.87) posted July 17, 2009 21:55:34:
Q:
Morning, Anders.

From the years I've been listening to Nasum over and over again, "Shift" seems to give me some incredible feeling of nostalgia due to the very melodic parts in the songs. I was wondering what influenced you and the boys from Nasum to lean towards a more melodic side (Mostly the endings of "Closer to the End", "Darkness Falls", and parts of "Ros"), and who made the decision to head down that path?

I read a review online, where someone said that you guys were stealing from "At the Gates", which I thought was complete bullshit. It's really Nasum's own unique sound, and take on it.
A:
What it all comes down to is the drop-A-tuning that was introduced completely on "Human 2.0", which also has the first melodic parts ("Shadows" being the obvious example).
As for the examples you mention - the ending of "Closer to the End" is heavily inspired by Isis and I remember Jon laughing as he said that none of his other bands would let him getting away with such an obviously stolen part. "Darkness Falls" was the last song on the album and demanded a definitive finale (it's the same on all the last songs on the albums), and it's also a sort of sentimental and sad song so the melody was obvious. "Ros" has the same kind of melodic qualities as many other songs by Mieszko, as the mentioned "Shadows" and "Fury".
At The Gates was a source of inspiration as any other Swedish metal band, but perhaps not as obvious in our sound as for example Entombed. The only thing I can certainly say is stolen from them is the break and the word "Go!" in "Sixteen" on "Human 2.0"... / Anders

Your snare drum has one HELL of a bang to it. I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of snare model that was? It sounds tight as hell, and extremely pulverizing. I love it!
A:
I wouldn't judge the sound of a snare from a live clip on YouTube... But it's the Black Panther as usual.
Cool clip, I haven't seen it before. Completely out of sync though... / Anders

Hi Anders!

Do you know something about the Grind finale LP set repress? Are there any clear vinyls pressed?

Another...

Are there any black vinyls pressed from the Doombringer LP?

Mannnnny Thanxxxxx!
A:
"Grind Finale" was limited to 1000 copies all black. No represses are planed. And "Doombringer" was only pressed in weird colors as far as I remember. / Anders

Q:
åh fyfan, jag kollade nyss på spelningen ni gjorde på Hultsfred 2003, jag har aldrig fått sådana rysningar i hela kroppen som jag fick när ni körde igång Scoop. Damn. Jag har dock några frågor. Om Mieszko inte hade dött 2004, hade ni planer på att fortsätta? Andra frågan: spelade du på en black panther eller en pork pie virvel på Hultsfredsspelningen 2003 eller var det kanske någon annan?

Jag saknar Miezsko som fan, jag kan inte föreställa mig hur det är för dig som förmodligen var väldigt tight med honom.

A:
Ja, det fanns inga planer på att sluta. Nasum hade ju i princip bara börjat.

Hello, Anders!

What do you think about the new Nasum shirt on Relapse, "The Engine of Death"?

Q:
Good afternoon, Anders!

What was one of the funnest and most memorable shows you ever played with Nasum? There were obviously a ton of venues you played at, but I was wondering which one you had the most fun with out of them all and why?
A:
I believe that the most fun was at different festivals, like the two times on Hultsfred, Wacken and so forth. As for venue shows... well, you can't really beat CBGB's, can you? But I think the warehouse gig we did in Lancaster at the end of the US tour was the most fun. 100% party and I even played a couple of songs with a blown up baloon - in my mouth! / Anders

Q:
Hi anders odd question here but any info would be greatly appreciated.

Do you happen to know what bass Jesper used live in the Hultsfred Festival video? Mainly Ive seen him use it in the Human 2.0 era. It was 5 string and black.

Cheers if you have any info.

Andrew.
A:
Yes, it's my old 5-string Washburn bass, that my parents gave me on my 18th (?) birthday. It was used in Necrony and also in Nasum, like on this picture, where Mieszko is playing the bass. It's not a fancy bass at all. / Anders

Q:
Evening, Anders.

Through all the Nasum albums, I was wondering which one held your favorite snare drum sound? Are you very picky on having the perfect snare sound? Did you use different snares through out each album? I thought the production from each record would change the sound of it. Overall, I really loved it on "Helvete", it had such a bang on clang sound to it.

P.S - Any more info on the Nasum Tribute CD? I'm dying to hear other bands try to cover already amazing masterpieces.
A:
The snare is arguable the hardest "instrument" to get right in a recording, I have yet to experience the perfect snare sound on one of my own recordings. Of course playing death/grind it's extra hard especially if you want to avoid using triggers and go for that natural sound.
I can remember what snares we used. Soundlab had one of two that was primary used because they were better than mine. I don't think I've used my own snare on any (real) recording.
Can't say which album has the best snare right now, and no new info about the comp. / Anders

Q:
Hey man! I have two questions.

I know enough Swedish to know the meaning of "skit" in Swedish... Was Urban's last name made fun with or is it pronounced completely differently?

Also, I got the Grind Finale as a present from my brothers girlfriend who had it lying around (it actually was a gift from her ex boyfriend) yesterday. I saw that the booklet was layed in upside down. Is this normal?

Thanks! Happy Christmas for all of those who come looking here, or something.
A:
Skytt isn't pronounced the same way and I can't remember one single time that we made fun of it in that sense. The word "skytt" means shooter, so it's quite different from "shit".
No, the booklet isn't supposed to be upside down so you got an unique and - would I imagine - annoying copy. / Anders

Q:
Hey man

Are you fimiliar with synesthesia? It's a mental disorder where people can see sound, or smell colors, etc. You have different forms, but I noticed you might have the visual-sound form when I read with the detailed description of the cover of Helvete: "We wanted to have the cover look like the guitar sound". I also have that form of synesthesia, and it makes your music slightly more interesting to me, because your album covers always match the colour of the sound, and even the form sometimes.

BTW: Tilsammans was on yesterday, that was one freaky ass movie, man.
A:
Hey, not familiar with "synesthesia" since before, but I am happy that the combination of our artwork and music works fine. Aesthetics have always been important in everything I do.

Is "freaky ass" positive or negative? To me it's one of the greatest Swedish movies of all time. / Anders

Hey Anders,

After the tragedy,When i bought Grind Finale i feel very happy to have another songs from Nasum,particulary the outtakes of helvete and shift(the best album ever for me),
about this,inside "Finale"i read that there were three songs never got finished,also in one interview just you say that,before the desaster in Thayland,
there were some ideas in project for the sequel of "Shift"album before meeting in studio in january 2005...
so my question is:the six songs that we could download called"rehearsal demo by Ex-Nasum"are the result of this project,you completed the unfinished song of shift,
or there are not correlated?
and,another question:are there any english translation of"Ros"song that is song i prefer?

Thanks of all(i knew my English is very,very Shit!!)sorry..
A:
No, the Ex-Nasum thing isn't any old Nasum songs or ideas reused.
No translation is available. One day I will try to have all the Swedish lyrics translated on nasum.com. / Anders

Q:
Hello, Anders.

I'm not sure why I haven't asked this before.. but what was it like shooting a music video for "Wrath"?
How long did it take for the actual video to be made?
How fun was it?
A:
Before we did it, the director said "You're gonna play the song 50 times", and we were like "Yeah, right". But actually it was true... We started around 6 in the morning or something and carried on for most of the day. It was quite exhausting in the end and as I played the song for real each time I'm quite happy we didn't do a video for one of the blasting songs. I would have died.
The most fun part was when the extras came in the coveralls and gasmasks. It was a bit strange to play with a haunting person standing next to me... / Anders

Tjena! Uppskattar nasum.com som fan och kollar fortfarande in den regelbundet för att läsa Q&A delen mm. Jag samlar på Nasum skivor och då jag har en förkärlek till LP:s så undrar jag lite om fullängdspressarna som ju finns i olika färger. hur många ex finns vart och ett i? här är hur jag fått ör mig om att pressarna ser ut:

inhale/exhale 300gul, 700svart
human 2.0 100svart, 900vit
helvete 100clear, 400vit 500 grå
shift 500svart 500 röd??
grind finale 1000ex
dombringer ??
de tre försnämnda i 500ex picture disc
har du funderat på att i diskografidelen ha med hur upplagorna på skivor ser ut?
Nått nytt om ND spliten?
har också en fråga om vilka kent åtar som spelades på Mieszkos bergravning. minns att jag har lst det på sidan men inte det inte nu. vill minnas att en av dem va "után dina andetag"
till sist måste passa på att säga att jag bla genom denna sida, dina texter mm har fått uppfattningen om att du är en oerhört bra person med hög integritet, bra åsikter om musik och livet i övrigt samt med båda fötterna på jorden.
A:
Jag har så dålig koll på pressningarna att jag inte bemödar mig med att ha med den informationen på sidan. Din lista ser ganska korrekt ut, fast "Inhale/Exhale" kom i en vit (?) press också, fördelningen mellan röda och svarta på "Shift" stämmer inte och "Doombringer" kom i fyra olika utföranden (vilka tog slut innan jag ens hann få personliga ex av dem, förutom den genomskinliga...). Kolla med skivbolagen för mer exakta uppgifter.

Splitten kommer när den kommer (vagt svar jag vet, men jag kan inte säga något mer exakt än så)...

Q:
Morning, Anders.

I had a few questions on some music around the Swedish Scene..

1. On a previous question of mine, you said you did some rehearsal things with Regurgitate, and on some Youtube videos, I saw you on drums for one of their shows... How was that for you? Do you sometimes jam with them from time to time to get used to the songs?

2. What do you think of Retaliation? I know they were on the "Grindwork" split with you guys.. I thought some of their stuff sounded quite in the vein of Nasum. Did you ever play shows with them?

Have a good day!
A:
I did a few shows with Regurgitate when Jocke was unable to participate, so it was basically the same setlist at every show so the songs pretty much stuck with me after the first one. We had a few rehearsals prior to each show. It was quite fun to play their songs, and I guess if they would ask me to do a show today it would be pretty easy to get the songs going again.

My biggest problem with Retaliation is the lack of lyrics, which leads to improvised vocals that pretty much sound the same all of the time that makes it hard for me to distinguish one song from another. Other than that they are cool. We never played with them during the Nasum years, but Coldworker and Retaliation shared a stage a while back. It was a noisy performance for sure... / Anders

Q:
Hey, man.

Are you planning to continue your blog about grind/death metal drummers? And my second question, Nasum is still considered as one of the greatest death/grind bands up to date. Now we have seen bands like Sayyadina, Gadget, the Arson Project, etc. from the same country as you guys. How do you feel towards the current grind scene? Note that a lot of screamo/emo/metalcore dudes misunderstand the term grindcore...
A:
I don't have time to do any more Masterblasters interview right now, so perhaps in the future. I don't keep track of each and every grindcore band out there, but seeing as 10 years has passed since "Inhale/Exhale" came out when the grind scene was pretty small, it really looks good nowadays, so I am happy as long as people keep on playing grindcore the old fashion way. / Anders

Q:
Hey man.

I was wondering, considering that Mieszko recorded to tape, if the vinyl releases of Nasum's albums sound any different from the digital releases. Admittedly I don't know jack shit about the technicalities of recording etc., so bear with me if this is merely a retarded brainfart of mine...

cheers
A:
Alltough the LP's and CD's are made from the same master I would say - without having done any A/B comparisons - that there are a slight difference in the sound, but that's basically because they are two different formats. It might also differ from vinyl to vinyl due to the pressing plant, the turntable and so on.
Also, only "Inhale/Exhale" was recorded on tape, everything else - from that point - was digital. / Anders

Q:
At the time you finished Shift, were there any plans for a next album/splits/comps/etc.? I'm thinking no, cause I, as a "musician in 5 bands" (I hate to call myself this way), am always planning for next shit when there's something recorded, but mostly I'm tired of that band for a while. So I can understand after touring extensively and all... But still, were there any plans? What I also wanted to know was: did you ever plan to form a thrashcore/fastcore band or a crust/d-beat band? I know Sweden had Bruce Banner in the fastcore genre. What about other guys in your environment?
A:
Yes, we had an idea of what we wanted to do next. We were inspired by some of the more spontaneous songs on "Shift" that basically were made in the studio (for exampel "Circle of Defeat" didn't exist when we started the recordings), so the plan was to create a bunch of songs in the studio and see how that would pan out.
As for crust/d-beat - it can't possible be more crust/d-beat than Krigshot... / Anders

Q:
Hmm haha. So I take it you do shredding as well on an acoustic then? How was it when you wrote in Nasum? I'm guessing the same, but did you and Mieszko (and potentially the other members) write some songs together? Did someone then come up with one riff or the basics and did the other fill up the empty spades, or was the I-come-up-with-a-song-and-you-learn-it-technique more popular, or practical for that matter? If there were some mixed songs, did the credit go to whoever came up with most of the song?
A:
Almost the entire song writing was done individually. It was most convinient and it really worked well for us. It was better to have a bunch of finished songs when we entered the rehearsal room and both Mieszko and I were fast learners so it was productive times.
He liked to keep his songs a little bit more open for adjustments during the rehearsal whereas I were more "finished" with my songs when I showed them. Of course there were exceptions but they were few.
I don't think there's a single track credited to the both of us, when it comes to the music. We wrote lyrics for each other every now and then, but basically it was 100% individual song writing. / Anders

Was that just a one time thing, or have you been experimenting with recording for other bands?
A:
That's the only recording I've done outside my own "circle" (= the Krigshot LP, Ex-Nasum "demo", Coldworker demos and Coldworker albums). Oh, yeah, I recorded the drums, bass and vocals for the second Ruin demo as well (it was actually the same weekend as Regurgitate).
Hm... to be perfectly honest there is a rehearsal thingy with Regurgitate where I play the drums also, but that's it.
I would love to record other bands, but I haven't got the time or skills to do it. Yet. / Anders

Will Nasum ever be an active band again? I believe Mieszko would have wanted Nasum to continue.

No. Who would sing? / Anders

Q:
Hey man,

In the track by track pages, you comment that you never knew why Mieszko decided to call Sixteen that way, and that you'll never find out. I recently recalled that I heard the song "Sixteen Tons" a couple of weeks ago on the radio while driving home from a friend's house. I understand it's about the misery of coal mining, and it's a pretty old song, but I guess you could interpret it differently than it's originally intended to be. Is there a possibility that's why the song's called Sixteen, or do you think that Mieszko just thought it sounded cool (with all due respect)?

Cheers
A:
I'm almost 100% certain that that song has nothing to do with "Sixteen". It will remain a mystery. / Anders

Hey man,

did you have the chance to "live" from Nasum? And second, did Relapse or any label srew you over or ripped you off?
A:
No. As for the second question, I would express my deepest disappointment with Clean Plate Records (as described in the "Grind Finale" booklet). That's the closest thing to being ripped off by a record label. / Anders

Thanks for answering my question. If you know why did Nasum have a different tuning live to on your records?

I was suprised at the coldworker tuning as it sounds very heavy.
A:
We felt that it was hard to get clarity in the riffs with the drop A tuning live, it just became a big mess, so we changed it just a little bit. / Anders

Q:
Are there any english translations of your swedish songs like "Hets"?
A:
Not really, but here is a "quick and dirty" translation, without any poetic ambitions...

What the fuck happened to your life and dreams?
A struggle for something unreachable and slippery
Your skin is whipped, it's beaten so it hurts
All this fucking stress drowns your life in black

What? Are you supposed to lie down and die?
Burnt out, wasted and totally run down
- Throw out the corpse, waste the shit!
Is this the thanks you will get?
Wear and waste, wear and waste - bring on the next slave

- You have to produce, concentrate, feel no guilt
You feel their eyes, you always feel the preasure
And your motivation is golden watch
Consumed by time, a slave under the stress

What? Are you supposed to lie down and die?
Burnt out, wasted and totally run down
- Throw out the corpse, waste the shit!
Is this the thanks you will get?
Wear and waste, wear and waste - bring on the next slave

What happened to your life? - Burnt out!
What happened to your life? - Run down!
The stress took over your life!


"Hets" doesn't really mean stress. I have never really found a good English word for it. It's like a mix of haste and stress. / Anders

Q:
At the power it up page I read that Coldworker also takes part at the Nasum Tribute Sampler and will cover one song.
Is that true?
I thought that will be very weird for you!?
Didn't I read that you can't imagine to cover a Nasum Song with Coldworker when somebody asked you that?

Best,

Josh
A:
Yes, it's true. It felt like the right circumstances to do it, and it was a band decision. But it's really only for the comp, the cover will not be a part of our livesets etc.

We're going to play one of my old songs from the early years, before Mieszko started to sing (and before I started to play the drums in Nasum), so comparisons with the latter Nasum sound should be obsolete. / Anders

Q:
Hi Anders.
A few questions I had were 1) How was working with Unrest records I have heard some up and down things about that guy...drunk,drug dealer etc...2.why did you choose not to work with Unrest for any other vinyl releases? 3)what's up with the split with Napalm?
A:
1. It was one of smoothest collaborations with an underground label that I have experienced during all the years. Mike was very cool, everything I suggested he agreed to and then added all the extra stuff to make the "Grind Finale" 4xLP something extraordinary. I mean, he appologized because he could only do black and white print on the labels...

2. I didn't know about Unrest earlier and all the albums etc was already covered by other labels.

3. Not much, but one of these days... / Anders

Hey, Anders!

After buying "Rotting Paradise", I read in the back of the CD sheet that you use DB Drumshoes.. I was wondering what is the difference in using them, and how are those working for you? Did you ever use them in Nasum?
A:
No, I've been using them for less than a year. They are very thin shoes, so it's the next best thing from playing barefooted as I used to, and they certainly protect my feet. They work fine for me. / Anders

You're probably aware of the fact that POWER-IT-UP is releasing a Tribute to Nasum LP/CD/whatever the fuck. If you're informed on which band is gonna do what song, which cover are you looking forward to the most? Personally, I think Roten Sound's cover of Resistance will be very cool.
A:
The confirmed line-up is very exciting and if they get all of the bands they've asked it will be amazing. I'm surprised (in a good way) about the choices of covers so I'm looking forward to hearing the album. At this point I choose not to speak about what I look forward to the most among the individual bands/songs. I'm psyched about the whole release actually. / Anders

Just an answer to the guy below:
Anders is the fastest merch sender I ever did buisness with!

No the question for you:

Anders, do you believe in afterlive? Do you have any belief in higher "spirits" apart from religious things which I know you don't support!?
I think religion is the worst thing mankind ever created. Just a reason and an argument for war and the included killing of innocent people. But I still believe there is something after dead. Do you agree with my opinion?
A:
If there's an afterlife there should logically have been a "beforelife", and I have no recollection of a such. So if there's an afterlife you wouldn't probably remember this life...

But if you want to be on the safe side, become a mormon! (South Park reference) / Anders

I guess you are talking about "The Contaminated Void"? It's really a question for Orion Landau, the artist, but using silouette's are pretty common in art. The horror movie poster you are thinking of might be the first "Friday the 13th"? This is original art though, the man is one of the workers in Relapse's mailorder.

Hey hey again, Anders.

Has any band or person influenced you on your drumming when you started and now?
I can say, You, Brian Harvey, or Kai Hahto are some main influences for me to pick up the sticks and begin blasting away, so I was just wondering if any bands you liked growing up made how you play today?
A:
I am mostly influenced by rock drummers, but a real influential drummer for me as a kid was a friend of my brother. He was a really good hardrock drummer in the biggest band in town and my brother took me to his rehearsal place so I could try the big kit and so forth. I learned a lot from this and it really inspired me. Other than that my biggest inspiration ever is Neil Peart from Rush. / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders.

I was wondering what kind of sticks you use when you are drumming?
I almost found that lighter sticks were easier to grip and enable faster speeds.. but they break incredibly easy.
Do you find any difference between the lightness/thickness?
A:
I use a very long and heavy Swedish stick - Vincent 2R. I've played longer sticks during the last - I don't know - six years. I used to play Zildjian Super 5B but lately I've been playing the Vincent stick. I should probably try to learn playing shorter sticks though.

I need a certain weight in my sticks to be able to play at all, lighter sticks don't work at all for me. / Anders

Q:
Good mornin', Anders.

During the beginning process, the start of Nasum, and even in the later era,
I was wondering what your means of funding Nasum were?
Obviously you had some help from the fellow members,
but.. Did you have a side-job, or endorsements?

I always had an interest in how someone starts up a band, and how it's paid for..
A:
Music has always been a free time occupation for me, and every dollar earned has went back into the band in some way or another (equipment, rehearsal room rent etc). It was actually not until the last Nasum tour that we earned some private money, which incidentally mostly covered what we lost in income from taking a month of from work. You have to be on another level to actually live on the music. / Anders

Well, Relapse don't sell bootlegs, they sell authorized merchandise that's OK'ed by the band. Bootlegs are not OK'ed by the band, and does nothing to support the band.

Q:
Hey again, Anders.

I had asked this question awhile ago, I think like 8 months ago or something, but I kind of left out the overall, main question I meant to ask.

I've seen so many grindcore band videos, and I noticed all the drummers will be doing the blast on the snare with their left hand, while they hit the hi-hat and symbols with the right hand. I noticed you do that, too.

You, being a drummer for so long, I wanted to know if that was the actual correct way of doing it? Or is it just a righty/lefty kind of ordeal? I find myself, when I'm drumming, to be doing the snare blasts with my right hand.. opposite of what I see in the grind videos.
A:
"Hi-hat and symbols..."! That was funny! Anyway, for me playing a blastbeat is a matter of co-ordination - right foot & arm / left arm / right foot & arm / left arm etc. It is essentially a normat 2/4 beat with the second hi-hat/cymbal beat left out. For me it would be impossible to play a blast with right hand/arm on the snare.

In my opinion the "blast with the right hand on the snare" is a completely different beat, as played by Cannibal Corpse for example.

But any way you slice it is good I guess. There are no correct ways to do anything anymore. So if it works and sounds good, then just do it. / Anders

Q:
Hey again, Anders.

I was reading in some of the archives about how you would edit/polish songs and such..
Let alone, lots of Grind Finale was edited with.

Did you take any lessons on working with music editing,
or did it come along naturally from playing around with music programs and what not?
A:
It really isn't that advanced as it might sound like. Basically it just a matter of adjusting the EQ and levels, with the aid of good plug-ins. For "Grind Finale" I got a crash course from Dan Swanö and then I had 150+ tracks to practise on. / Anders

It's the same 16 songs on the releases. The old cover trade idea was canned millions of years ago. / Anders

Good morning, Anders.

When I heard the news about the new CD,
I think I woke my parents up from screaming.

I was wondering if the album is mastered and all the like?
Or is it just a live recording with stage mics and such?

Feels nice to have a piece of Nasum be released when I'm a huge fan,
seeings how I was In grade 8 when Shift was released, and I had no clue what "grindcore" was!

Yes, it's mastered but it's a very rough recording from start so don't expect any high quality shit. Just a rough slice of life on stage with Nasum. All info about the recording is in the blog archives. / Anders

Q:
Hello again, Anders!

It's been awhile since I've pondered my latest question about Nasum..
until at school yesterday my friends kept asking me about something.

I bought the Nasum zip-up hoodie off Relapse back in August,
and usually from time to time people would always ask me "Why is the N in Nasum, always around a recycling sign"?
I didn't really have an answer, but I tried to explain the political lyric structure you guys would do..

And then I wondered what was the recycling logo all about..?
Did it have a meaning behind it for you to use?

Thanks,
and I'm incredibly excited to hear the upcoming Coldworker album (Finally bought The Contaminated Void a few weeks ago at a record shop) =D.
A:
Basically it's just graphics without any proper meaning. The first time we used the recycle symbol was 2000 on the tour t-shirt for the Napalm Death tour (the same design that's available now as "Recycle"), and at some point a drunken punk came to the merchtable and asked what it meant. As it is a combination of the recycle symbol and the Eye of Providence, I said something along the lines of "recycle everything you see and make something new". In other words: be inspired.
But basically it's just graphics. / Anders

Vad jag har förstått så kommer ni inte att släppa fler ex av denna sjukta bra och råa skiva? Varför har ni valt att göra så, det finns många fler än jag som vill ha den!!

Har försökt beställa från amazon.com, finns en massa säljare där som påstår sig ha den i lager men när man väl beställer så finns den inte.

Jag är kapabel att göra i princip vad som helst för att få nävarna på ett ex!!

Lev väl!

En annan sak jag tänkt på varje gång jag lyssnat på "Grind Finale" är om "Stealth Politics" som ju är en grym låt med ett schysst sväng. Det är ju denna låt som avslutar sagan om Nasum kan man säga, rent kronologiskt. Om du fick välja vilken låt du ville att avsluta "Sagan om Nasum", villken låt skulle det vara? "This is..." som både första och sista låt kanske?

Alla samplingarna på "Shift" plockades från olika "independent media"-sajter, från nyhetssändningar, intervjuer och lite allt möjligt. Jag har ingen koll alls på källorna eftersom jag spelade av det som lät intressant och jobbade med dem senare. Några av dem är montage dessutom.

Question from Omen (IP: 80.201.36.254) posted August 23, 2007 15:00:25:
Q:
Hey Anders!
How are you doing (I don't know you, but it's something I just ask everytime I talk to someone)?

I'd like to ask you a couple of things about the sound you guys produced on 'Shift' and 'Helvete'. I ask this because I'm very interested in recording techniques and sound, and of course music.

The first thing I wanted to ask you was how did you manage to get the raw, roaring sound of the guitars? Effects, pedals, amplifiers, etc...?

The second thing was at the beginning of the songs Fight Terror With Terror, and some other (I can't remember, heh), there is this weird sound generated. I can't describe it, but you'll know what I mean. Were that samples or guitars, or...?

The final thing I wanted to ask is that you used a certain cymbal on some songs. The only thing that pops up in my mind is Living Next Door to Malice. There are some other songs, a whole bunch even. Only the ones on Helvete pops up. Anyways, you used a certain cymbal that made a China-like sound while you blasted. You used that cymbal to mark certain notes on guitar, or that's how it seemed to me. I hope you know what I mean. So the question is, what cymbal was that?

Bye, take care.
Sorry for your loss, as it was one to many.

-Blast Fast, Die Slow
A:
1. This is certainly the most frequently asked question, that I have answered numerous times. And again: the sound of a recorded guitar is made out of the mikes on the guitar, the amp, the cabinette, the eventual pedals used, the mike(s) that recordes the sound, the size of the room, the soundboard, eq's and effects and not to forget the actual musician who plays the guitar. The easy answer is: we're from Sweden - that raw, crunchy, fat sound is in our blood! :) But for a more detailed description, check out Mieszko's "recording of Helvete".

2. Is it the feedback during the drum introduction you are thinking about?

3. That was a China cymbal! / Anders

Q:
Hey there, Anders.

I finally started to get back into drumming again,
and I wanted to ask if you for a tip or something.
Have you found it easier to play blastbeats open handed or close hand?

P.S - My friend and I are planning to do some type of Nasum Tribute, I was going to choose about 30 songs ranging from any EP, CD, Demo tape or what not you have made. I'll give you a shout when it's complete =).
A:
I guess with "open handed" you mean to have your fingers grip the bounce of the stick instead of using your wrists/arms? That is the correct way to play any beat, but to my knowledge I've only seen one blastdrummer do it (that be Danny of Napalm Death).
I would say that I guess I play "closed" by default, but sometimes I try to work of the bounce and if you master that technique I think the blasts can be both solid and hard.
But in the end, any way that works is fine as long as you don't hurt yourself or get tired fast etc. / Anders

Q:
have you ever recorded nasum material with the boss metalzone pedal?or only with the ds-1?
for the bass guitar you used 1 or 2 channels in the recording studio?
do you like martial arts?
A:
There's been a bunch of different distortion pedals used during the 15 recording sessions, the DS-1 was more frequent than the Metal Zone.
As for the bass guitar I don't quite understand the question, but if you're wondering if we tracked the bass twice that only happened on the "Domedagen" demo. Of course in some parts (like breaks and such) the bass is overdubbed, but mainly it's just one bass track. It's possible Mieszko used a number of mikes tracking the bass on several channels to mix it together, I can't remember. / Anders

Satt och funderade på varför det inte gjorts några kepsar med nasumrelaterade tryck.?
En vanlig svart keps med den vita nasumlogon, eller ännu bättre "in memory of Mieszko"- logon med årtal som på t-shirten du lät trycka. Det känns fortfarande bra att jag hann komma över den sista av dem.
Anyway, en keps skulle sitta fint på min snart snaggade skalle.
Ha det fint!

A:
Det har funnits kepsar. Flera gånger. Problemet ligger i att det har varit svårt att hitta riktigt bra sådana. Unrest Records har gjort Nasum kepsar som ska vara schyssta - mina ex har fastat hos Rugge/RGTE så jag vet inte hur de ser ut. / Anders

Hey, Anders.

I believe you are going on tour in... a day or 2, so I wasn't sure if this question would make it to you in time,
but were there any songs of Nasum that you had a hard time playing live? Like a more difficult song to play live, rather than in the studio?
A:
The "too hard to play live"-some were those that basically were impossible for Mieszko to sing and play at the same time. As we never worked on lyrics and song rhythms during the creative process, only during the recording process, some songs ended up with song arrangements that were only doable in the studio. / Anders

Jag har fått för mig att du är ett Smashing Pumpkins-fan, stämmer det? Isf, vad tycker du om den nya låten och vad har du för förväntningar på nya skivan? Tycker själv att låten bådar väldigt gott inför skivan, var orolig med tanke på Billys senaste soloverk men det här känns som SP igen!
Hm, blev lite spretiga frågor och kommentarer hoppas det är lugnt!
Ha det!
A:
Kommentarfunktion kommer eventuellt i framtiden. Vi får se.

Just nu ligger vi lågt med de nya låtarna och tar upp tråden i juli efter turnén. Vi har sju låtar skrivna, några komplett med texter, så det går framåt.

Jag har goda förhoppningar på nya Smashing Pumpkins. "Tarantula" tycker jag är en helt okej låt, lite old school blandat med Zwans positiva anslag. Billy Corgans soloskiva är min största skivbesvikelse någonsin, så SP:s nya lär ställa allt till rätta igen. / Anders
Question from Jordan J. (IP: 207.102.104.109) posted June 2, 2007 04:18:23:
Q:
Hey, Anders.

I read through the "Grind Finale" booklet a few times, and I saw that you liked your vocals the best on "Dis Sucks", and they were prety damn good, and to the questions...

1. What other song(s) did you think your vocals shined on?
I thought "This Is.." was pretty good, since you did some brutal growling, with some screaming. =D

2. Which song(s) did you have most fun with your vocals on?
I've made a few grind/death songs, myself, and it sure is fun to grab the mic and just give it hell.
A:
1. I'd say that I am most satisfied with the vocals on the "Regressive Hostility" recording (from which "Dis sucks" came from). On the following two albums that I sung on there were so many tracks that the vocals only became "good" the first takes.

2. Again, I'd like to point out a complete recording rather than some specific tracks, and it that case I think it was the "World in turmoil"/"The black illusions" session as it was the first time I sung for Nasum. The result is so so but it was quite fun to complete the songs with vocals. As a result I lost my voice for a week, as described in the "Grind Finale" booklet. / Anders

Ja, det är helt bisarrt vilken line-up det är. Personligen är jag idagsläget mest sugen på Machine Head eftersom jag torskat rejält för "The Blackening", men givetvis lockar Mastodon något enormt. Men jag kommer att göra mitt bästa för att se Korn, Cannibal Corpse, Mayhem och lite Earth Crisis. Och kanske Slayer.
Synd att jag inte blir kvar hela festivalen. Hade varit kul att hänga med Napalm Death och spana in Immortal och - förstås - Neurosis... (Converge kommer jag att se vid andra tillfällen under turnén).

Q:
Good day to you, Anders.

Meaning to ask this before, I forgot about it.
I was wondering why "No Paradise For The Damned" was re-done and put on "Shift" when it was already on "The Black Illusions" like... 8 years difference between the albums.

Is there some meaning behind that song in order for it to be re-recorded?

I just think it's a powerful track, and who's ever desicion to re-do it, was a damn good one.
A:
It's pretty much explained in the "track by track" (see the discography section):

4. No Paradise for the Damned

- This is the only rerecording of a released track we've done for any of our albums. We didn't plan to record it, it just happened. We had talked about adding this song - originally from the Abstain split - to our liveset but never managed to really pick it out from the badly played and badly recorded original release. But somehow we came to talk about it during the "Shift" session and I went home and pushed myself to finally pick it out. So I did it and we recorded it, but it never made it into the liveset anyway.

---

Apart from that I think the song added a feeling of the old days, a more straight on grindcore song among the more modern songs we wrote. / Anders

I am Finnish, so I'm taught Swedish, and I can pick a bit up from what Nils has asked you, Mr. Jakobson.

So did you play drums on Shift? I'm a bit confused about a few words you used in the answer to Nils' question.

As I previously said, Shift is my fav album by Nasum. The riffs are PURE POWER and the drumsounds are ones of the best I've ever heard in GrindCore. What was the snare brand & model if you remember? It sounds a bit like my friend's 70's Slingerland 14"x5.5" snare.

A:
Ja, det är så vanligt folk spelar in musik... Skämt åsido, ett par partier är inspelade till klick, till exempel mittenpartiet i "Doombringer", slutet av "Worst case scenario" och något mer kanske. Några låtar på "Helvete" spelade jag in utan någon slaskgitarr, alltså bara trummade. / Anders

Q:
Hello there, Anders.

I listened to Grind Finale a hell of a lot over the spring break, and the one song that really got to me was, "God-Slave America", and I read it was supposed to be on Human 2.0 but it wasnt..

The intro has to be one of the best riffs you ever came up with, why wasn't it placed along with the other tracks from Human 2.0?
A:
Yes, the intro was great, but the rest of the song wasn't, which is why it wasn't picked to end up on the CD. As the song was permenently discarded (at that point), I believe I tried to use the intro during the song writing of "Helvete" but never managed to work it into a song. Or perhaps I forgot about it? / Anders

Q:
Good morning, Anders.

I was wondering if you could translate that big message into English, because it seems like an important one if you posted the question.

If you can, thank you with all respects.
A:
The question was about song writing, in an abriged version something like this:

Q: How did you write songs for Nasum? As I've understood it you didn't collaborate but wrote your own songs. Or did some songs emerge from jams? How is the average way you write a song? Any other tips for song writing and creativity?

And my unabriged reply:

A: Mieszko used to leave some room for jaming when it came to the arrangements of the songs, and sometimes a song was born in the spur of the moment. Generally speaking I am not a fan of creating in the rehearsal room - you can be creative there, but to stand and try to come up with things from scratch is a waste of time.

For the Coldworker album everyone contributed with riffs and then we pieced it together, but now we have begun writing more on our own which is a result of us finding our collective style. So my song writing is pretty much in the same way as in Nasum, with the obvious differences (and I'm not really meaning musically).

Most of my riffs emerge when I pick up the guitar as I watch tv or something. You play a little and all of a sudden something resembling a riff is there, and then you polish it until the form settles. In connection with this usually another riff appears as a follow up and then you start to feel what it is - a verse, a chorus, an intro?

After a while you have a few combinations of riffs that might be pieced together to a song, or it becomes multiple songs, or you realise that you can combine two riffs and make something more exciting out of it.

And so it goes. The last year I've picked up the habit of writing down every riff I make not to lose them. The song writing in Coldworker consists of all of us sending recorded riffs and tabs to eachother so everyone can try it at home to make us more effecient on location. It's become a cornerstone in our way of working.

I think about music a lot and now and again ideas are born in my head that I then have to try and "pick out" on the guitar. The Coldworker song "Return to Ashes" is an example of that. Among the new songs we're writing right now there is a part that I first wrote on the drums. I sat drumming through the song as long as it was written and then continued with a slightly strange 2/4 backbeat with some accents and stuff and then went to the guitar to figure out how the riff should be played. It ended up a very good and odd riff, but I think that that method of writing only works when you have a drumpart that is out of the ordinary.

My best tip is to document yourselves as much as possible. You have to have the opportunity to listen to your songs objectively without playing at the same time. I.e. a rehearsal or a simple demo is a must for my song writing right now. A song is rarely finished once you've played it through and feels that it's alright. It's a first draft and there are always things to improve.

Good luck with the song writing - to be creative is the best thing I know! / Anders

Q:
Tjenare Anders, vill först önska lycka till med Coldworker! Ni manglar den bästa döds jag hört på länge.

Jo, det är så att jag funderade på en sak angående låtskrivandet. Hur brukade det gå till när ni skrev låtar i Nasum? Som jag förstått så samarbetade ni inte med musiken till enskilda låtar, utan du skrev dina och Mieszko sina. Eller uppstod även låtar när ni jammade tillsammans på repningar osv?

Om vi tar det genomsnittliga tillvägagångssättet för dig att skriva en hel låt, hur brukade det gå till? Hade du en massa olika riff på lager som du pusslade ihop till en låt i efterhand under en längre tid, eller hade du en klar bild i huvet av låten från första början? Kom du på dom flesta idéerna i huvudet, eller när du jammade med guran?

Om du har några övriga tips och trix för låtskrivande och kreativitet så skulle det uppskattas!

Tack för att du tar dig tiden att svara!
MVH /Anders
A:
Mieszko brukade lämna lite uttrymme för jammande när det gällde arrangemangen på sina låtar, och någon enstaka gång föddes väl en låt i stunden så att säga. Generellt sett är jag inget fan av att försöka skapa i replokalen - man kan vara kreativ i repan, men att stå och hitta på grejer från scratch är lite slöseri med tid.

Till Coldworker-plattan var det mycket så att alla bidrog med riff och så pusslade vi ihop det, men nu har vi börjat skriva mer individuellt vilket hör samman med att vi fått hum om vår gemensamma stil. Så mitt låtskriveri går till på ungefär samma vis nu som till Nasum med vissa skillnader så klart (och då menar jag inte direkt musikaliskt).

De flesta av mina riff kommer fram när jag plockar upp gitarren samtidigt som jag ser på tv eller något. Man spelar lite och plötsligt dyker det upp något som liknar ett riff och så putsar man lite på det tills formen sätter sig. I samband med detta brukar det alltid bli så att något mer riff dyker upp som fortsättning och så börjar man känna efter vad det är för något, vers, refräng, intro?

Efter ett tag har man ett par olika kombinationer av riff som kanske går att pussla ihop till en låt, eller så blir det flera låtar, eller så märker man att man kan kombinera ihop två olika riff för att få till något som känns lite mer spännande.

Och så där håller det på. Det senaste året har jag tagit för vana att skriva ned alla riff jag gör för att inte tappa bort dem. Låtskriveriet i Coldworker går till så att vi skickar inspelade riff och tabbar till varandra INFÖR ett rep så att alla kan prova på det hemma först och vara mer effektiva på plats. Det har blivit en hörnpelare i vårt arbetssätt.

Jag tänker mycket på musik och då och då föds idéer i huvudet som man sen får försöka "ta ut" på gitarren. Coldworker-låten "Return to Ashes" är ett exempel på det. Bland de nya låtarna vi skriver på just nu finns det ett parti som jag skrev på trummor först. Jag satt och trummade igenom låten så långt som den var skriven och fortsatte sen med ett lite halvudda 2-taktskomp i baktakt med lite accentueringar och jox och gick sen till gitarren för att lista ut hur riffet skulle gå. Det blev ett väldigt bra och udda riff, men jag tror att det skrivsättet enbart funkar om man har ett utstickande trumparti.

Mitt bästa tips är dock att dokumentera sig så mycket det går. Man måste ha möjlighet att lyssna på sina låtar objektivt utan att spela samtidigt. Alltså - en rehearsal eller enkel demo är ett måste för mitt låtskriveri just nu. En låt är sällan färdig när man repat igenom den och tycker att den känns bra. Det är första utkastet och det finns alltid saker att fila till.

Lycka till med låtskriveriet - att skapa och vara kreativ är det bästa jag vet! / Anders

Well, it's not the Nazi swastika, but the old Hindu symbol (see this link), which makes sense since all the other symbols on the t-shirt are religious symbols, which really hasn't got anything to do with Carcass.

Q:
Hi Anders!
Reading your answer about the fastest band you know, i noticed the point where you say you only listen to bands with human player. I substantially agree with you if we think about the overall sound of a real drum compared to that of a drum machine. Still, i think that a couple of "drum machine bands" are worth listening to: for instance, i really like some agoraphobic nosebleed records, and also in ministry we can find many drum machine parts...oh, well, anyway, he point is, if a band has no real drummer, do you preclude to yourself listening to it?
bye bye from italy!
A:
Yes, I realised that my answer was a little bit one-dimentional. What I meant was that when it comes to BLASTING bands the efforts of the human drummer is what does it for me. Anyone can program a beat and increase the BPM to the max, but what fun is that? When it comes to grind the thing that defines grind is the tempo of the drummer, so it you add a machine into the equation you have missed the point.

You are totally right - there are lots of very good bands with drum machines, like Ministry, Godflesh and a few others where the drum machine in a way is a defining part of the sound. In grindcore it isn't.

Sorry for being a little bit "short" in my previous answer. / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders!!
What is the fastest band that you have ever heard? Probably the berzerker or something?
A:
I only listen to bands that have a human being playing the drums. And my general idea about fast music is that a band is only as fast as the band as whole is. There are bands where the drummer explodes in short fast bursts while the others still play at normal speed. Sorry, but that isn't fast music.
So according to all this, I believe that the fastest band I listen to is Hate Eternal. A consistant fast speed through out the songs and the album. / Anders

This question was recently answered in Swedish, but here's a translation then:

Neither Urban nor I remembers the exact details from the recording as it wasn't documented in any way, but it's very likely that the recording was quite similar to "Helvete" when it comes to the guitars, i.e. Mieszko miked the guitars with a couple of mikes (I have a slight memory of only two for "Shift") and all guitars were dubbed (four tracks of guitars in total). / Anders

Tjena Anders.
Jag har en fråga angående blastbeats.
Jag har spelat trummor ett ganska bra tag nu, men jag är helt självlärd och min teknik är nog inte den mest genomtänkta, men ja har problem när ja ska grinda. min vänster hand (jag spelar med höger hand hi-hat) hänger inte riktigt med och den liksom låser sig på något sätt. samarbetar inte. som om motoriken inte stämmer, men de konstiga är att ja kan virla snabbt till förbannelse, men så fort jag ska grinda så uppstår detta problem. Vet du nåt knep, eller måste ja helt enkel öva mer?

Cheers!
A:
Hej du! Jag kan inte utläsa av din fråga om problemet enbart uppkommer när du grindar med högern på hihaten eller om det är hela tiden. Generellt sett tycker jag att det är lite knepigt att grinda på hihaten för det blir ju korsade armar och lite trängre med plats för vänstern. Om man grindar på riden så blir det en mer naturlig rörelse och i och med det enklare. Så funkar det om du grindar på riden?

I och med att du skriver att du klarar av att köra en virvel utan problem kanske du ska analysera hur din vänster funkar när du virvlar och jämföra det med grindandet. Flyttar sig armen på något sätt, slår du någon annanstans på trumman etc. Om du försöker hålla vänstern på samma sätt så ska det realistiskt sett inte vara några problem. Ett sätt att öva kan kanske vara att virvla som vanligt först och sen fortsätta och virvla med högern på hihaten.

Lycka till med problemet och ditt fortsatta grindande. / Anders

Q:
Salutes from Canada.

Before my question, I must say that out of all the band sites I've been on, you are the most dedicated to the site, answering questions daily and just all together showing a lot of dedication to the fans, it's awesome =).

But yes.. Out of the hundreds of Nasum songs I've listened to, the one that confused me the most, was "Soendermald", from "Industrislaven"... I know the song is the same as "Ingenting Att Ha!", but the vocals are... psychotic regurgitating sounds.

I was wondering if you could tell me the story or the answer behind the song?
A:
Yet again the fucked up tracklist on the "Industrislaven" MCD haunts me. When the CD was printed two tracks were merged into one, making half of the tracklist incorrect. The songs "Mer rens" and "Ditt öde" is track #8 on the CD when it should have been #8 AND #9. So the rest of the list is one wrong.

"Söndermald" is actually that slow instrumental track and the song you are asking about is called "Revolution II" (as it's a reprise of "Revolution"), and it was supposed to be a hidden bonus track, but it got it's own track #, thus making the tracklist "correct", when it comes to the number of titles and the number or tracks.

I can't quite remember why we did "Revolution II" in the first place. I think it had to do with the original having an improvised vocal part in the middle and we decided to do an all improvised take with a pitch shifter. Something like that. / Anders

Hey there, Anders.

Have you ever thought about recording a drum video?
I've seen some awesome demo's of other drummers, and I think you could do the same.

Maybe a tutorial on how to do grindcore, or just some wicked beats of yours?

=).
A:
No, I will not do a drum video. It would in all honesty be the worst drum video ever. I've got nothing against those who do those videos. / Anders

Q:
a lot of greetings from italy!!
i think i'm one of your youngest fans. i'm fourteen and i want to play guitar like you. is there any tip about playing grindcore guitar?
thank a lot
A:
Playing grind isn't much different from playing punk or metal or any other aggressive type of music. I think you should work on getting the basic guitar playing techniques into your system and then work on speed, muting techniques and so on. Good luck! / Anders

No, I never learnt German in school, but I guess I understand a few words. Swedish, Norweigan and Danish comes from the same language root as German, while Finish comes from a completely different root. / Anders

Q:
Good afternoon and or whatever the time may be.

I had another question I thought of today, when I was listening to "Really Fast" and realized Rickard was doing the drumming.

How hard was it (especially in the grindcore genre) for you to switch from playing guitar, to jump right into playing the drums permanently?

Thank you for all the time you have spent answering my questions =).
A:
Not that hard in terms or switching instruments as I've been a drummer since I was ten and playing the guitar since I was 17. But it was a little hard to play grindcore, as I hadn't done that before. It was hard but I felt that I could do it so I did it.

You need to get "Grind Finale" and read all the stories about the recordings. / Anders

Q:
Greetings, compadre

Quick question

With which nasum album, when writing and recording, do you think you were most in touch with your emotions and most connected as a band?
Cuz sometimes things happen in our lives or in our world just once, but is enough to bring about a change of emotions, and youd feel that the inspiration would just flow out and the album would feel right.
Im just wondering which album was closest to that speculation?
Cheers me amigo
Sorry about the length of this post just like in my last question, but now i realise im just fucking making it longer with every word.
Omid
A:
Quick and very hard... Well, I don't think any of the albums was born out of any "life changing" emotions. Perhaps "Shift", as the band was going through a lot of "shifts" during the making of it, but I can't recall that as a source of inspiration.

On "Human 2.0" there's a song called "Sometimes dead is better" which was my way of dealing with a broken relationship. That song and a couple more were directly inspired by personal things. / Anders

P.S. Another question, do you know if Nasum's t-shirts are distributed in Italy??? Thanks NASUM YOU'RE THE BEST OF GRIND
A:
Lately it's become pretty uninteresting for me to have "favorite bands". I don't know why, but I just can't get together to sum up my entire life's worth of listening to music and come up with "a favorite metal band".

Q:
Hallå!
När jag lyssnade på "Helvete" idag så tänkte jag på en sak jag inte tänkt på tidigare... Alla texter är på engelska, den enda fullängdaren med bara engelska texter på och den enda fullängdaren med svensk titel. Var detta något planerat eller en slump?

Skriver du några grindcorelåtar nu för tiden, eller får idéer iaf? Efter 15 år som låtskrivare i grindcore går det väl inte bara att sluta, eller?

P.S. Rugge måste ha gått o blitt galen! Han säljer sin röda "Blind World"tischa på ebay nu! Måste ha!:)
A:
Titelspåret är ju på japan utgåvan, så lite svenska blev det ju... Även om just den låten inte har någon text.

Slump eller inte, spelar det någon större roll? Det finns ju t.ex mängder av death och black metalband som har skivtitlar på latin men knappast sjunger på det språket. Titlarna på våra skivor valdes med omsorg och inte alls beroende på låtarna på skivan.

Det är gott om grind i de låtar jag skriver till Coldworker även om det inte är några renodlade grindlåtar. Jag blir lite sugen ibland, men jag får utlopp för det jag vill göra i Coldworker så just räcker det. / Anders
Question from Jordan J. (Canada (IP: 209.53.227.57) posted January 4, 2007 08:01:52:
Q:
Greetings from Canada, again.

I had my I-pod on a Nasum shuffle and I got to the intro of Industrislaven.

I wasn't quite sure what the sound was in the beginning.
Sounded like people mining or guitar feedback?

Do you happen to know what it was? =)
A:
The squeeking sound came from hitting the leftovers of the guitarstrings once they were tied to the tuning knobs. Of course there's a lot of effects on the sound, which made it sound "industrial" (and I think this inspirerd the title of the record). I think there are some "drumstick against guitarstrings" noise in there as well. I usually skip the intro when I listen to "Industrislaven" so I can't quite remember what's in it right now. / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders sorry about your loss.My question is which cd of yours is the most brutal and intense? My friends say its Human 2.0 ,but the most favorite is Helvete.I just wanted to know the opinion of the pro himself.
P.S. You guys were the best ever,you guys owned any band i know and i know a hell of a lot of bands!I have high hopes for Gadget,they kick ass and have lots of potential.Well anyway good luck in the future man and keep on grinding we all love you to death.
R.I.P-Mieszko(a legend)
A:
I don't see Nasum's music as brutal. That was never the intention, we were more out for a crushing effect than a brutal. But the recording I think sounds most brutal is the "World in Turmoil/The Black Illusions" recording - a 100% DIY raw brutal feeling.

Of the albums I think the one with the most brutal passages is "Shift". Like the opening riff/part of "Particles" or the pumping Bolt Throweresque part in "Circle of Defeat". Nasum never got more brutal than that. / Anders

Q:
Hur i helvete gjorde ni gitarrljudet på "shift"? Fuskgjort efteråt eller nån superkombination av massor av distboxar? Skulle gärna vilja veta...
A:
Varken jag eller Urban kommer ihåg några exakta detaljer från inspelningen och eftersom vi inte dokumenterade den alls finns det inget nedskrivet.

Sannolikt var det ungefär samma inspelningsförfarande gällande gitarrerna som vid "Helvete", dvs Mieszko mickade upp gitarrerna med ett antal mickar (något i mig säger dock att det bara var två mickar till "Shift") och gitarrna stereodubbades (alltså fyra gitarrer sammanlagt).

Till vissa slingor, halvdistade partier etc användes pluggen AmpFarm men alla kompgitarrer är "på riktigt". / Anders

Q:
Hello, again.
I was listening to A Request For Guidance a few minutes ago, and amonst the beautiful snare drum assault, I wondered about 2 things.

1. I couldn't quite make out from the photos, but what set of drums did you use for most of your shows?

2. What album of Nasum's did you enjoy most of your work on?

All the best to Krigshot =) !
A:
1. On the later shows (= the European tour, some of the Swedish festivals and a few off dates) I played on my current DW set (as seen in the recording of "Helvete" diary. On the first European tour with Napalm Death and a few other shows I used my previous green Pearl set (as seen on this picture). Other than that I played on other bands sets or backline provided by the promotors.

2. I haven't listened to the Nasum albums in a while, but I actually listened to the Making of "Preview of hell" mp3 today and was surprised by the druming. Generally speaking I am not fully satisfied with any of the albums drumwise, compaired to the Coldworker album which is basically faultless (?), but to say something I say "Helvete". / Anders

A:
Well, Millencolin is hardly the only band who uses melodies. But; being close friends since forever and co-existing as bands side by side it's possible that something rubbed off from one band to the other.

Hey man.

Im a drummer from ireland, and not to lick your balls like everyone else does cuz im sure your sick of it, but i admire your drumming technique, both fast and slow Some of those blast beats get so fast, moreover conveying of anger it would seem
.
I was wondering what your take was on the thrash band propagandhi, cuz you covered one of their songs and you guys have a lot in common, like it seems to me you both used your music partly as a medium to promote a message, just as my band (warning shot) attempts to do.

Sorry about the huge length of this post, its ridiculous.

May the grind be with you.

Omid
A:
The hardcore band Propagandhi, I guess you mean...

Well, Propagandhi was and is one of the most political bands I know about and their enthusiasm really inspired me although I am not a political person in the same way they are. Plus, I really enjoyed the music and so did Mieszko. At that point "Rio de San Atlanta, Manitoba" was their rawest song so it was fairly easy to make a cover of it and sort of stay true to the original feeling of the song and presenting it for an audience who probably weren't aware of them, instead of doing another cover by a band that they already know about. / Anders

Hey man I've been without a computer for a very long time. Just here to say its good that the vinyl is finally happening and it is great to see coldworker up and happening.

On question i've been meaning to ask for a long time that i'm sure has been answered at one point. What does the "mangel" in orebromangel mean when it is put in that context?
A:
Well, "mangel" means "mangler", like the apparatus you need to get your sheets and stuff flat and nice. But in Sweden we (= extreme music fans) use "mangel" as a description of how good, rough, extreme and noisey something is. I can't translate it to one good English word. It's like you're mangled by a wall of sound. So you are getting mangled by some "mangel" from Örebro.
The "Örebromangel" title is of course comes from a classic Swedish hardcore tape called "Stockholmsmangel" wíth some of the prime hardcore bands of the 80's Stockholm scene. / Anders

Why was Nasum able to write so many song?
Did you and Mieszko write whole songs seperately or bring rough ideas to rehearsal? Did guitar parts come first or drum/vocal patterns? I think you guys wrote consistently strong brutal material and hid all the bands you claim to have borrowed from well

Well, the band was around for 12 years or something which could explain the amount of songs written. But, yes, we wrote whole songs and hardly ever jammed or wrote stuff on the spot in the rehearsal room. / Anders

From the Candlemass forum.
"You never know what's the reaction. I guess it was last year when Swedish grindcore act Nasum was here in Tampere and at least one of their members had been earlier in a death metal band Necropsy who's 7" I really liked earlier. However, a friend of mine told me not to talk to them about Necropsy. To this day, I don't know why, but I didn't talk.

Are you Necropsy?

Necrony was the name of the band. While in Nasum I wasn't really that keen on talking about my previous band, especially since there was huge missunderstanding about Necrony evolving into Nasum. That was very not true.

A:
No, it's just that I don't see the point in doing Nasum songs with any other band than Nasum.
I only do deep vocals on "World in turmoil", all the other vocals are Mieszko's.
Lucky you, I had a translation of that song:
---
A WORLD WITHOUT HOPE

Our lives have no meaning, our seed gives no crop
I have thought so many times that we might as well just die

Show me a human, show me one happy soul
Show me a truth that isn’t blackened

Our children have no future, our seed gives no bread
I have thought so many times that we might as well just die

Tell me how many people suffers on this earth
How can you feel hope when the only thing that awaits is death?

A:
Att det inte blev någon samtidigt med de andra berodde på att det var så många vanliga vinyler kvar då, så det blev en intressekonflikt. Om det ska bli någon bildvinyl så är det något som Burning Heart, No Tolerance och GMR får ta ställning till i första hand. Känns lite som om tåget har gått, men man vet aldrig. / Anders

what do you think of the band's Exhale and Splitter?
I think their both great especially Splitter, them and a hell of alot of other grindcore band's really show the impact which Nasum had on Grindcore, you guy's have had the biggest impact on Grind since when it started with Carcass, Extreme Noise Terror, Napalm Death and Brutal Truth and that is some mighty boots to fill which you guy's done perfectly.
Listen out for the Extreme Noise Terror split with Driller killer on Osmose Productions The Extreme Noise Terror side is the most brutal to date by the band and it's classic Extreme Noise Terror Mixed with Extreme Grind.

Q:
Takk for siste svar.

Men dette er uansett ikke tilfellet med hamp. Industrihamp har såvidt THC (og det er da mindre enn 0.3%, kontra 10-14% i marijuana). Det er også ulike voksmønster. Hamp-planten vil vokse fort, ta mer næring fra de mer sårbare marijuana-plantene, og mest sannsynelig ødelegge planten ved å skjerme den for sol (eller eventuelt pollinere den). Mange europeiske land har hatt stor suksess med hampdyrking, uten at det har blitt narkotikakarteller av den grunn.

I mitt syn er det bedre at folk har majja som drog fremfor f.eks amfetaminer og heroin. Vi må merke oss at det er substanser som alkohol og tobakk som gjør mest skade på samholdet. Vi må også spørre oss om det er folks rett å ødelegge seg selv. I hvilket som helst av tilfellene, virker det fornuftig å legalisere cannabis sativa både som drog (særlig til medisinsk bruk hos kreftpasienter, MS-lidende og heroinmisbrukere som trapper ned) og industriplante. Skadene på kroppen er minimale kontra andre rusmidler. Avhengighetsgraden er kun der i den forstand at man kan bli psykisk avhengig, men dette foregår som regel kun i samvær med andre droger.

Samt, hampfrøet er rikt på næringstoffer og kan med stor suksess brukes i f.eks brødverk. Frøet inneholder alle de 8 aminosyrene kroppen ikke produserer selv. Mange bruksområder, med andre ord.

OK! / Anders

Q:
Noensinne hørt Towering Flesh from Pig Destroyer's Terrifyer-album? Forøvrig, hva synes du om cannabis (hasch) i medisinsk bruk, og hamp-planten i jordbruk? Hamp kan bl.a brukes til å lage utrolig sterkere klær, og fiberplast (som kan brukes til å bygge bl.a biologisk nedbrytbare biler -- Henry Ford eksperimenterte med ideèn, men siden U.S.A er en kooperativ fasciststat fikk han eventuelt ikke lov). Det er med andre ord ett sterkt alternativ til dagens skadelige og høyst ineffektive bomullsindustri, for å ikke snakke om papirindustrien.
A:
Det är sant att hampa är en resurs som skulle kunna användas i olika industrier, men jag undrar om det skulle funka i realiteten eller om den fria odlingen bara skulle leda till mer drogtillverkning?
Har inte lyssnat på Pig Destroyers "Terrifyer"-platta. / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders, when I was listening to Grind Finale the other day I noticed that the sound of especially the "Human 2.0" session tracks sound a lot different to the album songs. Weren't these songs mastered? I remember you wrote that Human 2.0 was partly destroyed during the mastering and these songs actually show. I know the entire Grind Finale release was remastered by you but the other songs don't sound that different to the original versions.
A:
Well, the "Human 2.0" recording was quite fucked up even before the mastering so it's really no wonder the unused songs from that session sounds crappy too.
My mastering work on "Grind Finale" was more a matter of adjusting the output volume from one session to another and also adjusting the EQ slightly so the overall sound became more even and not a direct transfer from the original sources. A more "professional" masterer would have worked more with the stuff but I didn't feel that it was necessary to put a lot of money into such demanding work. / Anders

Att äta djur är väl inte djurförsök... Skämt åsido - igen, alla är inte vegetarianer av samma skäl. Jag har lärt mig att uppskatta vegetarisk mat och äter det ofta, men jag behövde en annan sorts kost för att må bra och då slutade jag med den 100%-iga vegetariska dieten. / Anders

Hey Anders, just wondering what crashes you use in your cymbal setup? From the Osake and Munchen gigs uploaded on the site i can see you predominantly use 2x crashes and a china? What hats/ride to you also use? Many thanks for the inspiration.
A:
I've forgotten to write down my set up the last 4-5 times I've been near my cymbals, but now - finally...

Hihats: Zildjian K Custom Dark 14"
Left crash (my POV): Zildjian Z Custom Medium 18"
Right crash: Zildjian A Custom 20"
Ride: Sabian HandHammered Raw Bell Dry 21"
China: Sabian AAX Chinese 20"

There you go! They can be heard on "Shift" and that Munchen gig. In Osaka I played cymbals provided by the promotor. / Anders

Question from Jon Long (IP: 70.21.145.5) posted May 17, 2006 00:18:56:
Q:
I have a question for you concerning double bass. I got a double pedal recently (christmas) and I am having a tremendous amount of dificulty getting my heel up technique down (i've been a heel down drummer for my 2 year carreer) as well as getting my 16th note bass rolls any faster than a pathetic 120bpm. When I play at around 100 bpm or so, my feet start twitching and turning the 16th notes into sextuplets. As for the heel up, my feet start to move up when the pedal wants to go down and vice versa.

Now that thats out of the way.... i'm asking because you said that you had to get back into straight 16th for deathmetal in Coldworker, and I can play quick footwork with the bass, but just not 16ths. The answer I commonly get to this is just "practice a LOT, very slowly". And that doesn't always work out just right as my feet pretty much sporadicaly twitch and speed up at just about whatever tempo. Any ideas? I'm going crazy over this.
A:
Well, first off - I have just recently started playing double bass for "real" (despite 23 years of drumming) as it was something I needed to add to my style in Coldworker. That said I am hardly the expert on the matter, but I have made some progression lately and I'd be happy to share it with you.
I recognise the sort of flaws you described: feets twitching and problems having the beats even in the same tempo. It's very frustrating.
The obvious solution is to practise as much as you can. I'm not into the "practise very slow" idea because you don't learn double bass to play slow. If it's slower than what you can accomplish with only one feet then what's the point? I think the thing is to find a tempo that feels nice and that you are comfortable playing and then practise in that tempo.
For me it was much easier to play double bass in 6/8 than in 4/4, so that's maybe something you can try aswell.
When I started to focus on really learning double bass I started practising at home by just putting a pillow on the floor and sit on a normal chair doing double bass motions with the legs to any sort of music. My girlfriend thought it was weird but I believe it helped.
Then it's just a matter of practising it on the drums. For me it's always easier to play to a good riff than just play a beat by yourself. So get a tolerant member of you band to play along!
When it comes to the heel up/down problem, I don't really know what to say. I think your body will tell you what technique suits you the best and then just go with it. I've recognised when I've studied myself during rehearsals that I tend to alter a lot between the techniques. I can actually say that at one point one feet was heel down and the other heel up so I guess my body is working on that.
Here is a great "foot technique 101" from Derek Roddy's forum. There's a lot of interesting things to read here along with some cool video clips. Have a look, get inspired and get going with the drums! Good luck! / Anders

Tjao Anders!
Bara undrar om ni någonsin spelade "Bullshit Tradition" live? Och ifall det finns nånting i form av ljudklipp eller filmklipp av den live någonstans ? Ifall ni gjort det någon gång, spelade ni den snabbare än vanligt då eller som vanligt? bara kul o veta :)
A:
Jadå, den var ganska vanligt förekommande under perioden som trio. Jag tror sista gången vi spelade den var i Turku 26/4 2003 då vi körde den som extra-extranummer helt orepad och då gick den ju rätt kasst. Vi brukade ofta köra den allra sist och då blev så att man la i en extra växel lagom till sista breaket.

Vicarious didn't stand out too much, but I was fucking blown away by the remainder of the songs. Hope you're doing well, keep grinding.
A:
Yes, I heard the whole album, not more than once or twice yet, so I can't speak much about it. I've been playing "Vicarious" repeatedly since I got hold of that one and I think that one is a true killer. As for the album in total I must hear it many more times before really have an opinion but as a first reflection I have to agree with someone on the Relapse board who said that he wished they had rocked out more... / Anders

Q:
Hallå!
Schysst spelning i fredags!
Jag har en Nasumsamlar-fråga som jag hoppas du kan svara på. Hur många olika versioner kom varje album ut i? Mer än dom som finns på diskografi-sidan. Typ cd:s om det var fler än den "vanliga" och den japanska, och vilka olika färger på vinylerna som finns. Finns det några testpressar eller liknande också kanske?

p.s. finns det möjlighet att höra Joel nånstans från hans gamla band? Phobos fanns inte med på NAs sida...
A:
När det gäller CD:s så finns det bara de som finns listade på diskografisidan och de individuella sidorna. Jag har hört att det ska finnas en brasiliansk utgåva av "Inhale/Exhale" med två sekunder mellan varje låt (dvs knappast gjord från Relapses master...) men jag har inte sett den och kan inte svära på att den finns. Det är även möjligt att det finns fler bootlegs därute, men officiellt finns bara de som jag listat.
Vinylerna då... jag är lite osäker men jag tror "Inhale/Exhale" finns i gul och svart, "Human 2.0" i vit och svart, "Helvete" i grå, vit och genomskinlig och "Shift" i svart och röd plus picture discs på alla utom "Shift". Testpressar finns det säkert, jag har bara "Shift" på testpress.
Jag vet inte om det finns några Phobos-låtar på vift, men det är ju möjligt så klart. / Anders

I first started to listen to Nasum when I was about 11 or 12, I'm 20 now, and I'm sad that I never got to see you guys play live. Much respect and love for Mieszko, his family, and ex Nasum.

Thanks for keeping the dream alive. Thanks for the great music. I can't wait to hear more of it when the time is right for you. Every time I listen to Nasum I am very happy and motivated; sometimes i feel very lonely and depressed and your music makes me feel very comforted

I hope to hear more music from you. Much respect. And I hope you could reply to my email when you had a chance.

What I have said in interviews is that there is no more studiosongs with Nasum left to release, but there might be some liverecordings released if the material sounds good enough (and are good enough playingwise) to be released. So far the only thing that is good enough to be released on record is the live recording from Japan that I have talked about that we have a little preview of on the Audio/Video page.
The other stuff I have found so far is not good enough for CD/vinyl but good enough for the web, so there will be some liveclips at nasum.com pretty soon. / Anders

Thanks, Anders, and I just want to say I am totally enjoying G.F.! Also, many people probably say this, but a listen in one sit down is nothing but pure enjoyment for me! GRRRIND!
A:
I guess that particular symbol means recycle all over the world, and what is "Grind Finale" doing but recycling old songs? It's not more complicated than that! / Anders

Q:
Hallå!
Hur menar du att framtida släpp skulle uppfattas som att du/ni mjölkar ur det sista?
Skulle det inte vara schysst om ni kanske hann med att släppa det du listade innan Grind Finale-vinylen så att det verkligen fick bli det absolut sista. Dom som skulle tro att det var för att tjäna några sista slantar på Nasum förstår ju verkligen inte Nasum då... Hur går det förresten med ND-spliten??

ps. du har möjligtvis inte kvar något ex. av The bloodbath is coming?
/Richard
A:
Många tycker redan att "Grind Finale" är att mjölka pengar ur Nasum (att det inte finns några som helst mängder pengar i skivsläpp är dock ett fakta de har missat...), men ändå: Bandet lades ned tidigt 2005, att hålla på och släppa skivor med Nasum 2007-2008 känns inget vidare.

Q:
How many copies of Grind Finale were pressed (2000?) also is it now considered Out Of Print.

Any word on the status of a vinyl release for Grind Finale? I can imagine that this would be a complete Masterpiece on Vinyl and I know that I would love to have it in my Collection as do others.

Just wondering, thanks again.
A:
As far as I know the "limited" printrun is 7500 so I would not expect it to be out of print already!
Nothing is decided on the vinyl yet, but I guess it will be done eventually. Hopefully quite soon as I would not want future Nasum releases (in my world the "Grind Finale" vinyl, the "Shift" PD and the Nasum/Napalm Death split) to appear as greedy attempts to milk out the last money from the band.

Take a cabride to Almbykyrkan (Church of Almby) and then locate an area within in the cemetery called "Syrénen" (there are maps at the cemetery) and Mieszko's grave is at Syrénen 130. As far as I know it still has no proper gravestone and look like on these pictures. / Anders

Tänkte på en annan sak. Du skrev inget om nån sångare? Nån på G eller?

Funderarockså lite vad som händer med "ex-nasum" projektet? Kan man hoppas på fler låtar och kanske nåt slagt skivsläpp i framtiden eller lägger du allt krut på nya gruppen ett tag?

Ha det

/J
A:
Det står i blogg-kommentarerna om sångare och lite andra planer.

Ex-Nasum är ett projekt i ordets rätta bemärkelse och får plockas fram när alla inblandade har tid, och med två riktiga turnérävar som Jon och Jesper involverade är det inte så ofta scheman går ihop, men förr eller senare blir det en andra session. Min vision är att göra ett par låtar till och spela in en EP eller vad det kan bli och sen vara nöjd med det. Jag får min grindkvot uppfylld i det nya bandet och vill hellre satsa på det.
Jag har dock kommit på ett mycket bra bandnamn till Ex-Nasum som jag nämt för Urban och Jesper. Ubbe tyckte det var fyndigt och Jeppe sms:ade "[förslaget] kan vara det bästa bandnamnet jag hört på länge", så det är ju alltid något.

Hello Anders!
Satt o läste här precis, och kan inte hålla mig från i att fråga om det här om Anal Cunt´s titel på en av låtarna på kommande album. "Im glad that faggot from Nasum is dead". Stod att du inte orkar bry dig. Men ni som turnerat med A.C, är dom hatisk mot alla i världen eller äre bara som alla andra har.. En bitchig image!?
För jag skulle säkerligen ha brytt mig, för att man får uppfattningen av att ni var/är rätt bra vänner. Eller var det bara "on the road"?

Och sen sista frågan:
Hittade en Brun "Human 2.0" t-shirt på Tradera. Är det erat tryck eller är det hemmagjort? För har aldrig någonsin sett den :| och va tydligen "otroligt rare"

Tack så mycket på förhand / Fred
A:
Skulle knappast påstå att vi är vänner bara för att vi turnerade några dagar ihop... Men om du är bevandrad i A.C.:s värld så är detta en typisk titel som ska provocera i vanlig ordning. Och även om jag tycker att det är en högst olämplig titel (och som jag givetvis blir ledsen av) så tänkter inte jag slösa min tid och energi på detta. Om någon annan tar illa vid sig så är det fritt fram att tjafsa med dem, jag orkar inte.
Brun "Human 2.0"-tröja har jag inte sett, men det finns en tjeckisk halv-bootleg som säkert gjordes i brun färg. Den har utdraget tryck och ser bokstavligt talat FÖR JÄVLIG ut så undvik. / Anders

Q:
antar att de andra inte skulle ha något emot det, jag kan ha väldigt fel men) inte vill det...

Men ifall du är osäker p.g.a kvaliteten bör du tänka om. Det finns mycket med Nasum som jag har sett på eran hemsida som jag skulle vilja ha på DVD istället för PC. T ex när ni är på Finlandsbåten (2003?), alla videos (som är jättemånga :-)) och Hultsfredsspelningen m.m. Det måste finnas många mer klipp som är i jämförelse lika bra? Jag bryr mig inte så mycket om (Bild/ljud) kvaliteten .
Jag vill bara väldigt gärna se de, på min DVD istället för på PC:n... Dessutom slipper ju du ha alla klippen på någon server.... :-)
Så du slipper ju serverspace ;-)

Lika mycket som jag ser "Grind finale" (+ alla album såklart) som ett dokument över er karriär, audielt (stava), så vill jag ha ett visuellt dokument av eran karriär! Kanske är en egoistisk önskan men, men...vore coolt ialf!

Och alla som tror att DVD:n säljs bara för pengarnas skull får ju gärna tro det...
Så Anders, tänk på det (ovan) innan du säger nej!?
A:
Nej, det blir ingen DVD. Man kan ju knappast använda 5-sekundersklipp tagna med en digitalkamera på en DVD, och ta betalat för det?!
Kvalitén är för dålig och det finns inte speciellt mycket mer att gräva fram, speciellt inte för göra en sorts karriärtäckande film. Det som det finns mest av är konserter från samma period där vi spelar samma låtar så det är ju inte så mycket att hurra över.
Det kommer mer klipp till hemsidan så småningom och då är det väl bara att bränna en egen DVD om det är så att det inte passar att se klippen på datorn. / Anders

Gratulerar med en 5/6 i en av norges största tidningar (dagbladet). Kanske du inte tar det så possitivt, men det var ganska överaskande för mig att dom faktisk recenserade den! Grindcore är inte den vanligaste genren att recensera i norska tidningar..

Annars måste jag bara säga att jag är mäktigt imponerad av hur bra du har remastrat/mixat grind finale. Har en del av era mindre releases (7", comp osv.. ) men ljudet är ju helt överläkset (trots för att orginalena har ju sin charm).

Lycka till med den nya krishot releasen (väntar i spenning!) och det nya "ex nasum" prosjektet!

What kind of snare drums do you prefer? I play a lot of blasts and d-beats,and sometimes slow with fast double pedal (sorry for my bad eng., i cant describe it better) so in some way its similary to nasum. Now i would like change my old snare drum for better, could you help me to choose somethng. thx for any help oh and i can pay about 250 euro:)
A:
I like a snare with a good snap and a warm tone. The snap is usually a tuning thing, but the warmness comes from wooden snares, so have a look at some wooden snares. I don't like piccolo snares.

Tjena Anders!

Jag och en polare har en uppgift i skolan, där man ska arbeta med en viktig händelse från 1987 till idag eftersom vi föddes -87, och detta ska göras inom någon estetiskt inriktning.
Och våran första tanke var direkt att göra någonting om Mieszko, men kom på senare att det kanske är lite för smalt, med tanke på att det är en lärare som ska sätta betyg osv. Så vi bredda det till Tsunamin fast med fokus på Mieszko. Och vi har tänk att spela in 1 el. 2 låtar och klippa ihop någon filmliknande grej., med material från när vi spelar in låtarna och lite nyhetsklipp om själva katastrofen. Och nu till frågan, är det lugnt om vi använder foto/film material från nasum.com till detta projekt?

Tack på förhand /Gudbjörn Valgeirsson

Q:
Tjenare!

Vil du noen gang vurdere å skrive noen veiledende artikler for trommespillere, iom. at, som du svarer til Sean, du nylig har begynt å se mer på de tekniske aspektene i spillingen din. Holder selv med på et norsk grindcore-eksperiment for tiden, og mens jeg ikke har trommer tilgjengelig, må jeg programmere de (selv om det hadde vært bedre med ekte trommer; en trommespiller som driver bandet med all sin kraft og sin hele sjel), og da hadde det vært utrolig greit å vite noen råd især på konstruksjon av rytmer i grindcore, altså, når bruker man china etc. (selv om det er ingen lysende fasit over det hele).

Fortsett med Krigshot-punken. Jævlig suverent.
A:
Nasum.com nya Modern Drummer eller? :) Kommer jag på något bra att skriva så kanske jag gör det, men det tekniska är något för proffsen att behandla.
Men när det gäller just chinaanvändadet så styrs ju det givetvis att rytmen i gitarriffet. Jag tror det finns mycket att utforska där. T.ex vända blasten mitt i och chinamarkera det man inte markerade först. Har man ett trumset med mycket cymbaler kan man nog få till en del jävligt fräcka saker genom att flytta runt slagen.
Det får räcka för idag! / Anders

Sitter här och går igenom lite gamla "klenoder", bl a Route Nine. Har både demo (som jag fick tillsammans med Necony '93-'94) och 7:an ("Before I close...). Men, släppte ni något mer egentligen, du och Dan??
Och, kan man inte beställa "Grind Finale" från er? Eller har jag varit totalt blind och missat något uttalande från er om saken??

Skål!!
A:
Vi gjorde ytterligare en inspelning efter 7" som var ungefär lika mycket "demo" som den första inspelningen, dvs inte alls. Alltihop släpptes för några år sedan under namnet "The Works" på en remastrad CDr som Swanö gav ut. Tror inte han säljer dem längre.

Q:
Hello, hope you are cool? I was wondering what kind of set up you have in regards to your kick pedals 'action and tention and is your bass drum skin tuned looseer or tighter? also do you play heal up or heal down when you 'grind blast' or play 16ths notes on the kicks?
whould you say that you hit the kicks with more force or is it catching it on a nerve?, as some drummers play real ligh,t heal up, and triggered I am just trying to figure out how to sustain ones playing thanx again, We will spread the Grind !
A:
It's sort of funny that you ask this question now because I haven't payed much attention to analysing the technical sides of my playing and my equipment until just recently, so I am actually able to answer some of your questions.
First of all, I play heal down. It's possible that the heal goes up a bit during the blasts and d-beats, I have to study that some time. I would say that my beats are fairly hard - I would definitively not label them as "light".
The bass drum head is tuned average towards tighter. A good bounce is always nice.
The spring on the right beater is about in the middle and it's about the same for the left. This configuration only works for my current style of drumming where the left one only fills in on occation. I am currently trying to figure out how to play double bass and this configuration isn't working out. By tightening the spring in the left one I will be able to play easier with my weaker left leg, but when I tighten the spring now the beater ends up in a weird angle that prolongs the distance against the skin, so I need to do some hardware surgery to change the angle and see what happens. I actually bought the tools I need today. / Anders

Q:
Thank you for your answears my friend. I went out and got 'Grind finale' this moring (only just got the money together) excellent stuff! as a musician(guitarist) i like to study an artists progression from the inception of a project up until the end, i find it helps me learn how to get better at music my self.

Q are u a self taught drummer, do u play on feeling rather then using music theory and did it take a long time to master the blast with all the little cymbal intricacies?
are there any tips or practice ragimes for improving stamina and mastering the blasts? as im trying to educate a drummer friend of mine so we can GRIND! he can blast very sloppy for about 30seconeds with a declining tempo hahah!

Ps You are a modern day Mick harris! blast on!
ps again even know i'm a guitarist im obsessed with drumming(i wouldnt have to programme beats if we had good enough drummers here)
THANKS for your time.
A:
I went to "music school" for 8 years (age 10 to 18). That sounds fancier than it is but to break it down for you I will explain. Every kid in Sweden gets a chance to play music after school, of course for a fee, but the chance is there. If you're intersted in learing an odd instrument like the upright bass or the trombone you can rent these instruments at a fare rate. You can join ensembles and play different things alongside your specific course.
So I went and learned a lot about technique, rudiments and such. I played in a couple of ensembles and even a big band for a while, so I had my share of drum education during those years.
While you learn how to play the drums you don't really learn how to be a metal or grind drummer, that stuff you have to learn the hard way, and to answer your question I think I rely more on feeling than theory in this case, thought all the stuff I learnt of course is in my backbone and an important part in my playing. That is probably most evident in the more "alternative" blasts I do.
The cymbal rhythms/accents came from Assück at first (especially the "Misery Index" 12") and was something I could be able to incorporate once I felt really confident in the blasts. Mieszko - who by far is the musician I've played the most with - loved that stuff and often came with rhythm suggestions that I had to learn, so much stuff came from him.
I am in general a very un-technical drummer so I haven't got any proper tips for improved blasting. I think the trick is to just practise, play and play. When I moved from the guitar to the drums in Nasum my blasts were sloppy, short and weak so I'm sure he will improve very soon. / Anders

Q:
Dear anders hope you are ok, i am a huge fan of the band and was lucky enough to see you live in Bristol England with Sikth and D.E.P a few years ago.
DO you find that the Grind scene in sweeden has a bigger fanbase then that of England where there really is no grind movment, 'Grind' has become a buzz word, most people think that kill switch engaged are grindcore? this sux, i'm trying to find musicians who want to Grind in the UK, the standards of musicianship are really bad here for extreme music, drummers cant blast or even blast in time. the ride work when your blasting on 'Scoop' blow me! respect. ps we are very sorry for the loss of mieszko RIP.
A:
Well, it's really hard to compare scenes and such but I think it would be easier for a Swedish band of Nasum's size to do 10 shows in England, than an English band of the same size to do 10 shows in Sweden.
I would say that there are few people that only listens to grindcore here - at our Swedish shows the audience were always very diverse with punk, hardcore kids, metalheads and so on, so I don't really know what to say about this.
The "Scoop" blast actually has accents on the china, but if you hear it as the accents are on the ride I believe the beat may sound stranger than it in reality is. / Anders

Q:
Tjena Anders!
Köpte några dagar sen Grind Finale på soundpollution och det är en av de snyggaste och bästa samlingar som något band någonsin lyckats ordna.

Jag undrar över eran cover på låten "Bullshit Tradition" (vilken jag tycker är bättre än originalet då den är mer kompakt och snabbare) körde du enfotsgrind på den också!? För jag kan liksom inte begripa det isf, de flesta band kör ju med tvåfotsgrind när det går så snabbt och ändå så går det fortare på de flesta av era låtar och läste att du alltid kört med enfotsgrind :|.

Och en sista fråga, när kommer Krigshot´s nya att få tag i ? IVrig som satan på den med :D

Hare skitbra!
A:
Jag har aldrig spelat tvåfotsgrind i hela mitt liv. Det är en teknik jag inte behärskar och dessutom låter lite illa. Visserligen kan man få upp hastigheten ytterligare ett snäpp med den tekniken men i mina hörs det att något är galet.
Birdflesh-Adde sa en gång när jag gnällde att "om du ska springa så fort du kan så använder du väl båda benen" och visst ligger det något i det, men ur min synvinkel är det något som blir fel när högerbenet går på halva hastigheten jämfört med högerarmen. Jag får inte ihop det i huvudet och därför har jag inte ens testat det. Kanske är läge att göra det nu?
Krighots nya LP, eventuellt med namnet "Till vilket pris som helst", kommer förhoppningsvis i mars. Den 18/2 ska vi mastra och fram tills dess är det mix som gäller. / Anders

The Amp settings, Treble Middle and Bass, scaled 1 - 10 and how much distortion scaled 1-10 (if you not exactley know just say what you think?)
Would be great!

A:
Treble: 5,6, middle: 8,2, bass... No, just kidding. How do you expect me to remember such a thing? Also - as I've written so many times before in this Q&A - the sound you hear (when speaking about guitars) is the microphones on the guitar's recording of strings being played by a certain person, through a distortion pedal and though an amp, captured by another microphone or two, into a recording equipment, eqed by a computer and a mixing desk, mastered and finally going out through your speakers and into your ears. Now tell me how to recreate that exact sound... / Anders

Hej igen, Anders: Närå, jag har full förståelse för att det kan bli jobbigt att folk ber dig ha en åsikt om allt. Personligen tycker jag att det är mer intressant med dina åsikter för att du är recensent än för att du är musiker, då jag brukar läsa dina alster i tidningen. När du sen visat att du svarar snabbt på inläggen här blir det ju (ibland alltför) frestande att få en "second opinion" på saker man själv gillar.

När jag ändå inte kan hålla mig borta härifrån kollar jag väl om jag får svar på en fråga till: Visst var det du som berättade om mumindräktsfrågan? Hur skulle du ha svarat om du fått den i en intervju?
A:
Ah... mumindräktsfrågan... Ska väl dra den för ovetande. På 90-talet fanns det ett väldigt bra svenskt fanzine som hette Primitive Art (som sedan blev ett skivbolag, kanske till och med var det då också), som gjorde väldigt bra och roliga intervjuer. En fråga som ställdes till saliga death metalbandet Afflicted var "Om ni skulle få ett gig som förband till Slayer med enda kravet att ni var tvungna att spela mumindräkter, skulle ni ta den spelningen?" (ungefär så)
Skulle jag spela i mumindräkt? Jag tror att den där gigantiska näsan skulle förhindra ett smidigt grindande, men för sakens skull säger jag. Jag har spelat ett par låtar med en uppblåst ballong i munnen under sista giget på USA-turnén 1999 så det är ju nästan samma sak.
Frågan blir lite rolig när man tänker på vilka band som åkt som förband till Slayer de senaste åren. Jag menar, kan man bli så mycket mer mumintroll än Slipknot? / Anders

Q:
i heard, that you are not a fan of drumcomputer-grind-bands, is that because you hate the sound of drumcomputers or is that because you hate non-physical drumming?
A:
For me the whole thing about grindcore is that the drummer beats as fast as he can and drives the other musicians to perform with energy. Remove the blasting drums and most riffs could easlily be mid-paced metalriffs.
Having a drummachine and claim to play grind is a huge offence against me and everyother grindcoredrummer out there. It's like a few cars in the Formula 1 race should be placed on rails like some train.
I think some music benefit from having drummachines. I wouldn't have loved Godflesh and Pitchshifter if not for the stiffness and odd sound their drummachines add.
The same arguments - to a lesser degree - can be applied to the drummers that loves to trigger all their drums instead of using the natural sound of the drum. What's the point of playing as good as you can and then make it sound like a drummachine? I don't get it! / Anders

Om han skulle vara mallig så får jag bjuda på det, för jag var nämligen en av de fem som satt med i juryn och valde fram de nominerade och slutligen vinnaren.
Tryck pins och patchar om ni vill det. Gäller det större saker än så har jag synpunkter på det hela.

Q:
Tja Anders!
Alltså har en fråga som godamned måste ha blivit besvarad nångång, men orkar inte rota igenom alla frågor som du fått hehe.
Är Green Peace någonting som ni/du är partisk i? Tänkte mest på alla texter om att Stoppa Djurplågeri/Försök.
Och kan du rekommendera andra band som ni blivit inspirerade av genom era texter. Alltså inte band som lirar Goregrind som t.ex Regurgitate,Agathocles Assuck, Arsedestroyer och Bathtub Shitter. Några band med eran stil på texter, det enda jag vet är Dropdead och Sayyadina som är underbara band. Såg du btw, Sayyadina/RottenSound på Kafe44 sist?. En jävla bra spelning!

Hade Kanon / Fredrik
A:
Jag är inte medlem i några organisationer idagsläget.
Du behöver nog spana in texterna på Assücks skivor innan du kallar dem för ett goregrindband... Det kan ju nästan inte bli mer politiskt än så. Jag skulle inte kalla något av de där banden för goregrind, för övrigt, med undantag för Regurgitate möjligtvis...
Band som inspirerat oss textmässigt... tja, Napalm Death, Propagandhi, Refused, Dropdead, Assück, Manic Street Preachers osv - dvs band som har något vettigt att framföra.
Nej, jag var inte i Stockholm och såg Sayyadinia/Rotten Sound men jag följer turnén med spänning på nätet. / Anders

Q:
hey there. you know, i really wonder whether i can simply ignore some things i read on your page... i think it's very strange for a band like you, which certainly had a political "left-wing" (is there a term like that?) relevance, to release a CD at a label called "No Tolerance Records"... I can't laugh about "Genocide Superstar" either... i think a behaviour like that really sucks. i am a bit disappointed because i thought of you as a very straight band with which someone could really identify himself... i don't have an explicit question, but i would like to know what you think about that...
A:
Sorry, but I don't know what to repond to these opinions of yours. Exactly what in the word combination "No tolerance" is making you upset? What makes that labelname less OK than for instance "Poserslaughter" who has released two records with Nasum? And regarding Genocide SuperStars - everything about them - name, titles, artwork, etc - was supposed to provoke and guess what? It worked because you feel provoked and feel the urge to question me about a band that I am not a member of and of a label whose name goes very well with our supposed "left-wing" politics. I have no tolerance for sexism, racism, injustices, drugabuse, prejudice and so forth. Do I need to continue? / Anders

Ok, I shouldn't have worded it exactly like that. I think New Storm sounds just like Prelude after the intro part. But it sounds like it in the sence of a much heavier and rougher demo.

I don't agree one single bit. Just because the tempo of the songs are similar and that they are in some sort of "moshier" style they don't sound like each other. The riffs are not like each other at all, as for the structure etc. / Anders

Q:
I got my copy of "Grind Finale" yesterday. Great way of documenting your history and progress.

Double "digibook" looks fine also, but to put it frankly, package is not very top-quality product. Booklet is gonna tear of soon, cause it was already almost detached when i bought it. Well, i can live with that, cause booklet is otherwise awesome and full of intresting information/anecdotes.

Have you seen those two " perfect collections" by Discordance Axis or were they even used as a model/inspiration when planning "GF"? DA put their "documentary" in DVD-cases, which are awesome and they also include massive booklet with linear notes/history/pics/song by song commentary. Dave Witte also rules !
A:
Yes, the package is a little bit fragile, so you should handle it with care. The "end papers", as I think they are called (the first and last sheet that binds the cover with the booklet) should have been printed on thicker paper.
I have not seen those Discordance Axis collections. The "inspiration" for the package came from Tool's "Salival" DVD/CD. The first packaging suggestion was a double DVD-digipack with a pocket for the booklet, but it wasn't possible to fit the thick booklet we needed in that package. / Anders

Q:
Hej!
Jag undrar vilken skiva som varit roligast att göra?
Jag tycker iallafall att alla skivor jag har hört är helt underbara. Det går inte att undvika att lyssna på dem. Like I said. Så tack ska ni ha.
Puss och kram!
A:
Att spela in album är ofta väldigt långa och påfrestande studiosessioner som givetvis är roliga på sitt sätt, men också jobbiga. Jag tror att de roligaste inspelningarna var några av de tidiga inspelningarna som bara varade i några dagar, som var lite mer spontana och lättsamma även om det var koncentrerat arbete inblandat också. Ska jag välja någon så är det nog inspelningen till samlingen "Regressive Hostility". Det var första gången vi hade riktigt bra ljud, jag hade kommit in i min roll som trummis i Nasum och låtarna var jävligt tillfredsställande att spela. Det är också den inspelning som jag sjungit bäst på i mitt tycke. Den är absolut en favorit av så många olika anledningar och således den roligaste. Bör även nämna "World In Turmoil"/"The Black Illusions"-inspelningen som var den första jag spelade trummor på. Den inspelningen var väldigt DIY och det var kul att se att vi fick fram något trots den begränsade utrustningen.
Men det var väl album du frågade om antar jag, och ska jag välja någon så är det nog "Helvete" som var roligast. Dels var den en sorts comeback för oss efter ett par tunga år där bandets vara eller icke vara hängde på en tunn tråd, och dels var det - precis som med "Regressive..."-inspelningen - en produktion som fick ett jävla bra ljud, låtarna kändes starka och som grädde på moset hade vi både Shane Embury och Jörgen Sandström på besök i studion. Det var grymt kul på alla sätt och vis. / Anders

Q:
What is your favourite Nasum cover art? I was drawn into Nasum by the cover art for Human 2.0, which I felt was very against the grain of traditional grind artwork. However, I would say that Helvete is my favourite. I always felt that the artwork for each Nasum release somehow captures the essence behind the music, was that something the band tried to achieve? How much creative input did you guys have into the artwork with each release?
A:
I can't really pick between them, because they are all different and represents different things.
Yes, artwork was important for us and something that we were very involved in. We believed in the whole package: music, lyrics, artwork, production etc, and what you see in the end is according to our wishes and directions. / Anders

Q:
Important!

What chinacymbale is used on Inhale/Exhale?
LOVE the sound of it!
A:
It was a Sabian china. I can't remember the model (never been good at that). It's broken now so I am not using it anymore. It broke just before "Helvete" but it's used there anyway.
As always when it comes down to sound - what you hear is a result of the types of mikes that capture the sound, the distance to the cymbal, the natural room reverb, the eq:ing, the mix, the mastering and your personal eq on your own stereo so what you hear might not be exactly how the cymbal sounds in real life.
But, alas, the cymbal had a nice tone from the start. It was used on every recording from the "World in Turmoil" session to "Helvete". / Anders

Q:
Hello again Anders, once again I am sorry if this question has been asked in Swedish. In the Bio section of this site I noticed the following passage:

"The new line up debuted at a show in Uppsala together with Tragedy. Parts of the show was filmed by Swedish TV who did a feature about Nasum in the music show "Studio Pop"."

Is there any chance of getting this footage up on the site? I know you don't plan on doing a Nasum DVD, but I'm trying to compile as much footage as I can for myself, and to have something filmed professionally outside of the "Wrath" video would be a great addition to the collection.

Thanks
A:
I think the chances are very small. That footage is copyrighted by Swedish TV so I can't just put it up (I don't have it in digitial form anyway), so unless someone has is in his/her computer and is filesharing it I think it will be very hard to get hold of this. The piece is very short anyway, about 2,5-3 minutes and most of it is talk anyway. / Anders

Q:
Hi Anders, sorry to ask you so many questions, but I was wondering what drew you guys to sign with Relapse? Did they approach you, or were you label hunting at the time? Were they hesitant at all about signing a band that didn't have much touring under their belts? Were you happy with their level of promotion of Nasum?
A:
Relapse was of the first labels we approached back in 1993 when we had recorded our first split 7" EP. We sent out a tape with the tracks (this was before the record was released) to a bunch of labels whose addresses we had picked from flyers etc. I remember getting a letter from Relapse that said: Yes, we are interested in selling your 7", which wasn't really the point. The form letter we sent out was clearly for fishing more 7" deals.
Some years later Mieszko did the "Grindwork" 3" MCD and Relapse helped us to sell it and showned interest in the band. A few more years down the road we had released "Industrislaven" and probably recorded the "World in Turmoil/The Black Illusions" records and decided to see if Relapse still was interested and at some point we sent them "Regressive Hostility" recording and they signed us on that one. We've been told that Nasum is the only band they have signed "unseen", but I don't think that is entirely true. The rest of the story is here.
Yes, we were happy with what Relapse did and still do for us. / Anders

Hoppas du haft en bra helg!
Nu är det dags att förhandsboka Grind Finale och jag undrar var man ska köpa den för att ni i bandet ska få mest pengar? Får ni mest om jag köper skivan från cdon som säljer den för 269kr eller får ni lika mycket om jag köper den på Relpases hemsida för $16?

Q:
Now that it's been a year since the tsunami, I find myself thinking often of what Nasum's music has meant to me in the short period that I discovered the band before the tradgedy. The creativity, power, and message behind Nasum is something very rare in music these days. I can't wait to hear Grind Finale, and have already pre-ordered my copy from Relapse.com, but I was wondering when I saw the photos from Mieszko's grave, do you have any fears that someone might steal Mieszko's copy of "Grind Finale" from his grave?
A:
If that happens I hope the ghost of Mieszko and the others at the graveyard will haunt him forever... Ultimately I want the family to take care of the copy, I just thought it was appropiate to put it there on the one year aniversery. I didn't plan to do it first, I just grabbed a copy as I was leaving home just to show it as I promised in my eulogy but as I stood there I thought it was the right thing to do. / Anders

Hey, how come you guys chose to include a USB cable on the cover of Grind Finale?

It just seems like a very odd thing to put on a cd cover.

It was Orion's (Relapse) idea. I think it's brilliant, it sort of goes along with the futuristic approach we had on "Human 2.0". The idea of the cover was to pick inspiration from all our other covers. / Anders

A:
During the mid 90's I was in a lot of different bands (all inside the alternative style though) and wrote some non-metal stuff, but since 1998 I've only written grind (apart from a few Krigshot-tracks), so now I am actually hopelessly stuck in this writing style. I wouldn't know how to begin writing something else, especially "normal" music. / Anders

Q:
Anders, what kind of label interest have you had for the new "ex-nasum" project? Have Relapse or Burning Heart approached you about it? Do you plan on touring with this new project, or will you just take it slow and see what happens with it? Are you going to produce the album yourself (with your newly aquired talent), or will Dan Swano? Any ideas on what we can expect as far as lyrical content goes? Will it be a political approach similar to some of the Nasum material, or something else?
A:
1000 questions...
As stated over and over again - this is a project, not a band - so it will exist on a pure project level, i.e. get together when the time is right, write some songs, record demos, perhaps record a record of some kind. I don't think shows or tours are in the picture, to be honest.
I would estimate that the lyrical content should be as old school as the music and not have a political approach. There was an original plan for the lyrics when I approached the guys about the project, but I don't think we will follow that plan due to the quality of the songs. / Anders

Q:
Hello!

Well here's a question I've been asking a couple people I know and no one has a accurate answer. I thought why not ask someone who is actually in a well known grindcore band... here it is:

According to books like "Choosing Death: The Improbable Histroy of Death Metal and Grindcore" and many other people within the metal/punk scene, Napalm Death are considered to be the "gateway" band to extremeness in the extreme metal/hardcore world being they've supposedly invented the "blast beat" and shcizophrenic hardcore punk (aka grindcore today.) What do you feel about Napalm Death's contribution to the extreme world? Would there have never been any blast beats in death/black metal if it wasn't for Napalm Death? Was grindcore in fact invented by them?

This is a debateable quesiton I know, but what are your feelings on this being you were apart of the whole grindcore movement?
A:
To begin with: Napalm Death did not invent grindcore. I'm not sure who did, but band such as Seige, Lärm and early DRI should be considered inventors in this case.
But: Napalm Death was the first band to put grindcore on the map (much due to John Peel's radioshow in England), so they probably had a lot of influence on extreme music in general, and ultimately how things are today. I've never seen Napalm Death as the reason for blast beats in death/black. I think it would have came natural in those genres eventually anyway.
Bands have always been looking for ways to be more extreme, and increasing the speed is certainly one way to do it. I remember when I first head Accept's "Fast as a shark" during the 80's and was totally blown away by the speed. A couple of years later I heard Slayer's "Silent scream" and felt that it was so fast that I couldn't hardly listen to it. A year later I heard grindcore for the first time and understood that the speed limit was reached (in hindsight: not really!).
So Napalm Death's contribution to the extreme world is priceless but I don't think they are the direct reasons to those things you mentioned.

Då måste jag ställa en följdfråga=) Varför var napalm death och DEP så bra då? jag har träffat DEP och dem var mycket trevliga!

Va svarade Seth på er lilla You look divorced-kör då?

Det roliga är ju att han faktiskt är frånskild. haha. Och att han skrivit om en massa människor som ligger i koma och är homosexuella. Och han vaknade för inte så länge sedan upp ur en koma. Ödets ironi kanske?
A:
Vi såg ju upp till Napalm Death som fan och man har ju en viss bild hur ens förebilder/idoler är. I många fall stämmer den inte alls, men i detta fall var det helt perfekt. Inget krångel alls och inget bråk, förutom när Jesper och Shane diskuterade en Star Wars-detalj, haha!
Dillinger Escape Plan å andra sidan var närmare oss i ålder och sånt så det blev liksom en bra kontakt mellan oss. Det var kul.

Vilket är ditt favoritband att turnera ihop med?

Och hur va det att turnera ihop med Seth och grabbarna i Anal Cunt? Hur va Seth som person?

Favoritband att turnera med var Napalm Death och Dillinger Escape Plan.
Att turnera med AxCx var inget speciellt för i ärlighetens namn var vi och Napalm Death som åkte tillsammans medan AxCx och Pig Destroyer åkte ihop. Det var bara mest under gemensamma middagar (populärt i Japan) och vid gigen som vi sågs och jag kan väl säga att vid ett tillfälle gluffsade Seth i sig en rejäl sked wasabi.
Jag vet inte vad jag ska säga om honom som person. Jag pratade aldrig med honom, men när AxCx kom upp till Toys Factorys kontor och Seth såg lite seg och bakfull ut sa hela Nasum i kör: "You look... divorced", och det var otroligt roligt.

Jag är bara lite nyfiken på vad du har använt för program för att remastra(EQ:a) låtarna till grind finale??
A:
Jag satt i Cubase och använde mig främst av en plug-in som heter Firium som man kan använda för att läsa av en EQ-kurva från en källa och sen använda den på andra. Så jag läste av "Shift" eller "Helvete" och satt sedan och laborerade med de andra inspelningarna. Lite vanlig EQ-ning blev det också. / Anders

Q:
1.Who do you feel are the most important grind bands today? Bands that really define the genre and breathe new life into it.

2.Where do you see the future of grind, do you see it reverting back to it's grass roots a little or do you think we'll continue to see cross-genre bands that expand the boundaries, so to speak, of grindcore (eg. The Berzerker)?

3.Do you think we'll ever see another major label "cash grab" of grind bands like we did in the mid 90's with Carcass and Napalm Death?

4.What is one band you wish Nasum could have toured with that you were never able to?

5.When you were playing guitar in Nasum, what tunings did you use, and what was your guitar of choice?
A:
1. I don't know. Just because I used to play grind, I don't know every band that does it! :)
2. I can't tell really. I guess grind will never be huge or trendy, but I imagine that bigger bands can bring some grindinfluences to their stuff. We heard it on Slipknot's latest, some say System Of A Down have grindparts now (I don't) and Soilwork has a pure grindsong on their latest (song is called "Blind eye halo" - check it out!). Five years ago I heard more grindinfluences in the hardcorebands but it really didn't catch on, so I have no idea what to expect of the future.
3. I wouldn't say that grind made it to the major labels. Anyway - black metal is a more commercial extreme style so they'll keep to that.
4. Converge. It almost happened, and could have happened during 2005.
5. I had a Ibanez with EMG-81 (still have) and the tuning during my guitar years started with a D-tuning (first two recordings) and then became a B-tuning. / Anders

Q:
I'm a guitarist turned drummer for a grind band here in the philippines. I played the drums because it's hard to find drummers who likes grindcore here (I wonder why? They're all into deathmetal & all there blastbeats are 1 to 2 seconds long only. Anyway, with regards to my drumming, I have some questions: What kind of cymbals do you use? Is there any particular cymbal do grind music use? I've seen your Live In Osaka video, why is it your cymbals sounds differently than mine & are so noisy & mine are not? The one I used from live gig are noisy but the one I bought for myself wasn't.
A:
My prefered cymbals are Zildjian or Sabian, fairly big (18-19-20") and fairly thick (heavy) so they last. My right crash (from my point of view) is more or less my main "part" of the drumkit so it must hold for all the beating.
You should not judge the sound of my cymbals from the Osaka video because first of all - those cymbals were part of a rented backline and not mine, and second of all the sound has been compressed by a videocamera and then damaged by the videoclip compression, so the sound is really far from the truth. / Anders

Q:
Hey Nasum!

I have no real question, I just wanted to tell you a couple of things..

First off, I truly, deeply feel for the loss of Mieszko Talarczyk.. When I read the stuff you had written about him on this page, I felt like crying.. I didn't know him as person, but I am a very big Nasum fan, and just imagining what you guys must be going through, it's.. Horrible.. But I'm glad to hear that you're getting upwards again.. Everything's going to be alright.. I just wanted to tell you, that I too am really sorry that he is no more.. It hurts deeply in my heart.. I wish you the best of luck for the future, and please: Try to keep your mood up..

Second: I'm also very sorry to hear that you have stopped Nasum entirely.. I know that you have written that no one knows what the future will bring, and I really DO NOT want to be selfish, especially not in your situation, but just the thought of Nasum being no more, that is sad.. I would also very much like to see you guys live some time, but of course I fully understand if you cannot keep doing this, being in Nasum.. I truly do.

But what I really want to say, is this: I did not know Mieszko personally or anything, I am only a fan.. But what do you guys think that he would want you to do if he should die? Personally, even though I did not know him, I think he would want you guys to carry on, and still be an active band.. No matter what happened, I think he would want you guys to keep going.. And don't forget the song you guys yourself wrote: "Go!".. "Never give in, never give up, you have to stand strong. If there's a will, there is a way, just f*cking carry on".. That song have helped me a lot when I have been down, and I just wanted to remind you of how you felt when you wrote that..

Well, that was all for now.. A reply would be nice..

And again, good luck to all of you in the future.. Grindcore forever!
A:
Well obviously it's impossible to know what someone dead would have liked or not liked. One year ago would I have told the other guys: "If I die tomorrow, I want you to carry on"? I don't know.
In the end it's not really up to that person to decide for the others what to do, it's a matter of how things feel.
I don't know if you play in a band yourself but I am sure you've heard about "band chemistry". Well, we felt that an important ingredient was missing and that it currently is impossible to find.
I am as sorry as the next guy that we never got to do a proper US/Canada tour, or that we never explored the parts of Europe that were unknown for Nasum, or got to Australia and what have you, but a reunion of Nasum isn't really an option anymore.
In a way, the new project I have with Urban and Jon (and ultimately Jesper and hopefully Rickard) will sort of fill the gap Nasum left, although the style of this is slightly different. I am planing to share our October recording with you guys pretty soon (I need to remix it) and you will hear for yourself.

As for "Go!" it was a try to write some sort of positively charged lyrics as a counterpart to our normal lyrics which fed on the negative parts of life and society (something that goes along very well with the aggressive music), and I am glad that it helped you, but it will not bring Nasum back from the dead. / Anders

2. which radiohead album did you prefer, Kid A or Amensiac? ;)

Tack för det bra svaret!

Du har ingen aning om Hostile Regression existerar fortfarande och hur chanserna är att få tag i skivan?

Det är en av få nasum släpp jag inte kommit över... har bara sett den 1 ggn på ebay dessutom.

A:
Det verkar inte som bolaget finns längre, men den gamla länk jag hittade - http://go.to/hrr - går till ett annat finskt skivbolag som visserligen enbart säljer death/black, men ändå måste vara besläktat med tanke på att de använder adressen.

Det skulle vara lite kul och veta vilket regurgitate släpp du gillar bäst.

Samt nasum borträknat fullängdarna.. Äger du 1 ex av alla era skivor..?

A:
Angående RGTE så är det just nu deras senaste inspelning (från vilken det finns en låt att ladda ned på deras hemsida) som jag gillar bäst. Annars måste jag säga att deras debutsplit med Vaginalmassaker är en klassiker i ordetsrätta betydelse.
Klart jag har alla Nasum-skivor (!) och den som jag gillar mest är "Regressive Hostility"-inspelningen (inleder disk 2 på "Grind Finale"), då den betyder mycket personligen för mig.

Q:
Tjena Anders
Ibland kommer jag på mig själv att jag inspireras väldigt mycket av ditt trumspel, och märker av att vissa saker smittar av sig väldigt lätt i mitt eget trumspel. Min fråga till dig är just om du känner att du tillför inspiration till andra trumisar, lr är du som dom flesta trumisar självkritisk(lr de är väl alla iofs)? Känner du liksom att du tillför något för andra med ditt trumspelande?
A:
Jag skulle aldrig påstå att mitt spel är speciellt unikt på något sätt - allt jag gör har någon annan gjort tidigare, men om folk får inspiration från mitt spel så är ju det förstås helt i sin ordning eftersom jag i min tur plockat massvis med inspiration från andra trummisar under de 20+ år som jag spelat.
Trummisar som jag plockat massvis med inspiration från är bland annat: Neil Peart (Rush), Pete Sandoval (Morbid Angel/Terrorizer). Derrick Plourde (Lagwagon), Paul Burdette (His Hero Is Gone/Tragedy) och John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) - det är alla trummisar som tillfört något till mitt spel, som jag "snor" idéer ifrån hela tiden.
Jag går väl inte runt och känner att jag tillför något till andra, men jag fattar att min musik och mitt spel påverkar andra eftersom det ändå är en del som lyssnar på mina skivor. / Anders

Q:
Hejsan! Antar att denna fråga är otroligt svår att kanske svara på, men är bara så nyfiken :D

Vilken låt/låtar har det varit väldigt väldigt svårt att lära sig på trummor som ni gjort?

Hare skitbra // Fredrik
A:
Jag kan inte påstå att någon låt varit "väldigt väldigt svår" att lära sig, däremot har en del varit jobbiga att spela och andra jobbiga att få till.
"I hate people" var knepig att orka med på grund av alla kängpartier som staplades på varandra. Från början var låten mycket längre också, men det löste sig med lite bearbetning. Fortfarande var den lite av en plåga att spela, ingen höjdpunkt i låtlistan för min del.
"The smallest man" på "Shift" har en massa småfiffel i slutet som var lite krångligt att få till. Jag satt faktiskt själv i repan och filade och filade på partiet och är inte helt riktigt nöjd med hur det blev på inspelningen.
På "Grind Finale" finns en överbliven Jesper-låt som heter "A civil critique" som har en väldigt bökig vers bestående av ett långt riff som ska markeras med grind och det var också en del jobb att få till det.
Något sådant. / Anders

Q:
Anders,

I was wondering if you can tell me anything about a band from Sweden called Sarcoblaster?

I know one of the guys from Millencolin was in this band, and their song Corruption on the Bad Taste Records CD - Quality Punk Rock is really good. It has a nasum feel to it, so I was wondeirng if you know anything about this band, because I can't find much other than this track, and it is pretty good!

Figured maybe since nasum shared studio/jam space with millencolin members at one time you might have some info.

Thanks,
Paul
A:
I believe you got an answer from Larzon by mail, but for the other collectors out there. Sarcoblaster was an all Millencolin project where Larzon and Mathias played some hareder hardcore just for the fun of it. Of the few recorded songs Sarcoblaster had, the song you've mentioned is the only one remaining to be heard.
There is no relation to Nasum other that I believe that the project picked their name of the Necrony track "Multi-locular Morphea-Sarcoblasters"... / Anders

3. Repulsion "Horrified", Assück "Anti-capital", DropDead "s/t", G-anx "Masterplan", Terrorizer "World Downfall".
4. I det långa loppet Iron Maiden, även om Metallica betytt mer musikaliskt. Metallica fick mig att gilla hårdare metal, tyvärr i samband med att Cliff Burtons bortgång annonserades i klassiska radioprogrammet Rockbox.
5. -
6. Mer geni än skräp, men lite överskattat, fast väldigt bra ändå. Solklar åsikt?
7. Burst.
8. At The Gates. Tveklöst.
9. -
10. -
11. Trummis: Neil Peart, gitarrist: Steve Vai, sångare: -, basist: -, keyboardist: Jens Johansson.
12. -
13. -
14. Att vi tog grindcore på blodigaste allvar och gjorde något eget samtidigt som vi bevarade essensen av det hela.
15. Mieszkos favoritband var Kent och med ned i graven fick han - via Millencolin - ett signerat ex av Kent nya skiva, paradoxalt betitlade "Du och jag döden", en skiva han aldrig fick höra. / Anders

Q:
Fy satan vad cool Grind Finale verkar, det är nästan lite taskigt att lägga ut bilderna när vi inte kan få den på två månader;) Längtan blir så mycket större.
Jag har en fråga angående utformningen. Är den inspirerad av David Bowies 30 års-jubileumssläpp av Ziggy Stardust (världens genom tiderna bästa skiva för övrigt) som hade en liknande utformning, eller är det endast Tools Salival som ligger till grund (äger den tyvärr inte så vet inte riktigt hur den ser ut)?

Det är inte alls säkert att jag kommer att sälja den. Skulle nästan kunna "lova" att jag inte gör det inledningsvis. Vad sen skivaffärerna tar är upp till dem, men det är meningen att den ska säljas till ett vettigt pris. Relapses pre-orderpris på $16 (ca 130 kr) är ju ruskigt lågt och bra.

Q:
Anders, I guess if Mieszko was still around he'd be the person to ask, but maybe you can answer my question. Why did Nasum have no guitar solos (besides the odd guest appearance)? Was Mieszko more of a "riff" guitarist than a technical player? Personally I fucking love the dynamics of Nasum and the fact that you didn't put focus on the technical and show-boaty "solos" that other bands rely on, but I'm in a grind band with an asshole who constanly wants to add solos where they aren't needed!!! Hope you can give me some insight into the creative mindset of Nasum.
A:
We never saw guitarsolos as one of the basic cornerstones in our music. It was rather something we added as an effect when the song needed it. Mieszko was more of a rhythm guitarist than a solo guitarist but he has recorded his share of solos for Nasum - just listen to the older albums. It's all the work of Mieszko.
I think you need to talk about what you want to do with your music with your fellow bandmembers. If something feels all wrong you should probably talk about it. / Anders

By my standards our t-shirts are fairly cheap, but of course they might seem the opposite for other people who compairs the price to what they pay in their countries. Also, a big part of the total price is the shipping which is very expensive when it comes to international shipping.

Goddagens! Blev jävligt till mig när jag läste på Q&A (sidan 6 tror jag) att Genocide SS kanske skulle börja lira lite igen, kanon att du uppmuntrar dem till det också. Accidents är i och för sig guld, men eftersom Genocide SS hela tiden utvecklades i rätt riktning vore en ny skiva nästan som en våt dröm för undertecknad och flera i kretsen. Du vet inte om de tänkt plocka in någon för att ersätta Mieszko eller om de tänkt köra på den kvarvarande sättningen? Bandinavel ist krieg, vore la inte vanhedrande mot minnet om någon annan (helst scenkändis) axlade rollen som den tredje vokalisten. Shift är f.ö. det bästa Nasum åstadkommit, tack för musiken!
A:
Om de kör något så antar jag att det blir för att ge bandet en snyggare avslutning än att bara stänga butiken rätt upp och ned. Vad jag har förstått finns det material av Danne och Rickard skrivet som nästan täcker upp en hel fullängdare (GSS plan var ju att spela in en ny platta under 2005), så bara de repar borde de gå smidigt. Men jag tror inte det blir mer än så, och sannolikt ingen rekrytering av en ny medlem. / Anders

A:

Where are these words from? - nasum lyrics???

Good to hear you are grinding again with a new project
A:
It's from a song called "Fuck the system" (duh!) that originally is from the Regressive Hostility compilation, soon to be on "Grind Finale". It's my number one favorite line in a Nasum lyric ever! Mieszko wrote it. / Anders

A:
Ja, vad ska man säga? Alltså: vi hade en "mission" att föra grindcoren vidare när vi körde igång på allvar, och i och med att vi lyckades göra det (att inspirera Napalm Death att börja grinda igen är väl nog bevis) så är det klart att man känner sig stolt och nöjd. Jag tycker bara det är roligt att ge något tillbaka till genren eftersom det finns en rad band (upprabblade i en tidigare fråga) som inspirerade mig på samma sätt som några kanske finner inspiration i Nasum.

fisrt of all, me and others friends in my city love nasum and we started a grind band because of you guys and napalm. We are doing what you did in the past, trying to be like napalm! We are playing nasum, or trying to be like nasum with a little bit of meshuggah! :D
I have another band for 8 years and im starting this project and trying to start a label for crust/core/grind bands, not big, just underground. I would like to know if there will be possibility to have any help of you in any aspect. We, brazilians love fast/core bands like nasum and any improve for the scene from the another country that has good underground basis would help! I can, try, since i didnt start the label yet (like i said, its small, small!) catch up european grind/core/crust bands to get released in Brasil, its what i intend as also release brazilian bands in europe.

Another question, could u recommend me how to get voice hard/strong and good breath to sing lot of words like miesko did? I loose my voice quick and breath sometimes and how to get good sync playing guitar/singin.
Man, im sorry for the long question and would be amazing have your tips/helps and with permission could i send you private emails if u can help me about the label?!

well, thats it for now....
ahh btw do u know anything about it?

do u like/know of any brazilian band?
cya keep strong!

Sorry I can help you with the label or to "voice coach" you since I don't know what Mieszko's secret was. Practise, maybe.

Hej Anders!

Ville fråga om du spelar trummor i nått band nuförtiden? Om du gör det så kan du väl styra en spelning inne i Örebro! Så man kan få se/höra ditt kungliga trumspel! Ställer mer än gärna upp med att styra lokal och förband!

* en liten bonusfråga: Spelar du med en eller två fötter på baskaggen när du kör Blastbeat?
A:
Mitt nuvarande trummande kan du läsa om i bloggen. Och givetvis är det enfotsgrind som gäller! / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders, I play drums and I really like the sound of your cymbals on Shift. I was wondering on the brand, size, model. I'm starting a thrash/grind band and the cymbals that I use for my other band are to big and heavy. Your help would be sick.
A:
Again concerning sound: it's not the cymbals/pedals/guitars/whatever that does it, it's the mikes, the room, the eq and the talent of the engineer that makes the sound. That said, I can't really tell what I played on during the "Shift" recording because I might have bought some new ones since then. But big and heavy cymbals rules! / Anders
Question from Lauren (IP: 129.32.168.191) posted October 21, 2005 18:23:43:
Q:
Hi Anders,
Did you ever want to use Nasum as a platform for political change? Were you or Mieszko ever interested in sponsoring or advocating for a personal and particularly important cause or organization through the albums of Nasum (through the artwork or music)? Was the band ever trying to accomplish a specific goal (political or otherwise) with the lyrics and ideologies?
Thanks for the wonderful music in the legacy of Nasum. Mieszko, you, and the other band members of Nasum are blasting my ears all the time.
A:
The answers to your questions are basically no. Music came first for Nasum, although we spent a lot, perhaps even more, time on our lyrics. The lyrics were political but they were the political views of the individual writers, not the band as a unit. We left the preaching to the bands who felt that music obviously was less important. / Anders

Sorterar man sin skivsamling i bokstavordning så kommer Nasum direkt efter Napalm Death. (Beror visserligen på hur många skivor du har men..)

Det är taget från Andy Warhol's film "Flesh for Frankenstein".

A:
None of the above!
In all honestly I think everyone can pronounce however they want, (because we pronounce it very Swedish here) but to be as close as possible to the true pronounciation you should listen to the intro we have on the "Blind World" 7" EP, or "Grind Finale" for that matter... / Anders

Kan inte påstå att Mortician är något favoritband av olika anledningar. Tycker att de i väldigt liten dos har sina poänger dock. Nile är ju klart bättre.

Q:
Hallå där! Om man ska ta och lyssna in sig lite på Napalm Death...var ska man börja? Vilka skiva?

Hej å hå!
A:
Dubbelmackan "Noise for musics sake" innehåller ju det mesta från Earache-åren, bland annat den fantastiska "Mentally Murdered" EP:n i sin helhet, kanske den Napalm Death-release som inspirerat mig mest i Nasum. Fast samlingen är mycket överkurs också. Napalm Death har ju haft olika skepnader under åren som inte uppskattats av alla, men nu på senare år har de ju börjat röja igen så underskatta inte de nyare skivorna.

Jag har inte direkt hört någon ny spännande grindcore de senaste månaderna, utan hänvisar till tidigare tips här och bloggen om svenska band som Splitter, Sayyadina, Gadget, Jigsore Terror och Regurgitate så klart.

Hej Anders!
Varför slutade du med sånginslag, du har ju grymt mäktig röst!
A:
Det var en rad anledningar. Den främsta var väl att det var uteslutet för mig att sjunga live, varför det blev konstigt för mig att sjunga på skivorna. Sen tycker jag ärligt talat att jag inte hade en bra röst och det var rena turen att den blev bra i vissa låtar. Jag hade inte de fysiska förutsättningarna för att sjunga och blev ganska allvarligt "skadad" de gånger jag sjöng. Ett par timmars skrikande och jag kunde inte prata på en vecka, så det var liksom inget som passade mig. / Anders

Q:
Tja Anders! Hehe har en liten konstig fråga. Alltså jag såg på en snutt från No fillers just Killers när du spelar med Regurgitate, och hörde att sångaren säger att deras riktiga trummis var sjuk så att du fick hoppa in. Alltså det jag undrar är om du lärde dig deras låtar skitsnabbt precis innan själva konserten eller kunde du alla rent innan?. För att om du skulle ha hunnit träna på låtarna så borde den riktiga trummisen varit sjuk ett bra tag. Hehe hur låg det där till egentligen, hehe ursäkta den konstiga frågan men har alltid undrat :D. Hare skitbra // Fredrik
A:
Så här var det: Jocke, Regurgitates ordinarie trummis, drog på sig en ganska allvarlig ryggskada så han var sjukskriven från jobb och grind en längre tid, typ ett år tror jag så Regurgitate låg lågt (öh?) med konserterna.
När jag står på tågperrongen i Örebro på väg till Stockholm och sedemera till Japan januari 2004 ringer Rugge och frågar om jag kan tänka mig att ställa upp på en konsert i mars. Jag funderar väl lite och tackar ja. Jag sms:ar till Urban och ber han bränna en låtordnings-cd så jag kan lyssna in mig på låtarna ur en trummissynvinkel. I Stockholm får jag cd:n och på lediga stunder i Japan skriver jag ned låtarna på ett sätt så jag fattar vad jag ska spela.
Lite senare gör väl jag och Urban ett eller två rep och sen repar vi hela ligan ett par gånger innan det är dags att åka till Tyskland.
Efteråt tycker jag att i och med att jag är inrepad på låtordningen kan vi lika gärna göra ett par spelningar till så det blev två till i Sverige och sen lämnade jag över trumpinnarna till Jocke som blivit hel och fin igen. / Anders

Har du några planer på att gör en "Making of.." på "Shift"? Vore himla kul att se bilder bilder från inspelningen och läsa sig igenom skapandeprocessen, precis som man kan göra på "Helvete".

Anders, is it somehow possible to send you some mp3 files (or just one~) from own grindcore projects? when i started my "band" i was so much inspired by nasum; actually i started it BECAUSE of nasum. i know that i will NEVER be able to keep up with you, the greatest grinders on earth, but i would really love to know what you think about it and i would really appreciate an experience like that.

Det är ju en dubbel-CD så det kan väl vara en ledtråd. Jag vet faktiskt inte. Jag har velat att den ska säljas till enkelpris, men jag vet inte om det blir så. När som helst kommer den upp på Relapses sida och då kommer priset att stå där. Sen är det ju i och för sig upp till svenska skivaffärer att sätta egna priser. / Anders

"Härlig" är väl kanske inte det ord man tar i sin mun för att beskriva den nya folksjukdomen utbrändhet, för det är ju det den handlar om kort och gott.
Att det blev det temat var faktiskt helt slumpartat. Vi hade alltid arbetsnamn på låtarna, och den här hette "hetsiga låten" eller "hetslåten" för att den var så hetsig och jag gillade ordet och skrev texten utifrån det. Ganska annorlunda sätt att jobba på, åtminstone för mig. / Anders

It would be really cool if you could make some submissions in your free time.

Yes, I've been to the wikipedia page for Nasum and as I remember it, it was pretty good. I actually submitted changes to the discography that was pretty weird and incorrect at first.

Q:
Hey Anders, I just have a simple question. How come Nasum never toured the U.S.? I know you played Milwaulkee Death Fest or whatever, but thats all I know of. I was always hoping you would come to Cleveland. Did you have something against the U.S.?
A:
Our first tour ever (1999) was eleven dates in the US and then we returned to Milwaukee in 2001.
We had nothing against the USA, but all the tour offers we got after 2001 were not to our satisfaction and would only make us lose money. Going on tour means you have to take an unpaid leave from work, and if one is not getting back what you lose (or at least close to it) it's really not worth it.
But the USA was next on the list and if things would have been different we would most likely allready played there at this time... Sad but true.
I've read some comments by people on message boards over the years that "Nasum wants too much money! Nasum are rockstars!" and whatever - no, we wanted a deal that was equal to what an American band would get if they come to Europe, and noone offered us that. / Anders

själv köper jag skivorna mina mest för att jag gillar att få helheten med texter och så men också för att stödja gruppen om det är en bra som inte har tjänat miljoner och gör av med hur mycket som helst.
tack anders
mvh danne
A:
Det här är ju en het fråga, men generellt sett tycker jag att nedladdning är OK till en viss gräns. Själv laddar jag ner låtar när jag letar efter något speciellt (något gammalt t.ex) eller något jag vill lyssna på inför ett skivköp, eller bootlegs. Jag kan också ladda ned skivor som jag vet att jag kommer att köpa eller få, bara för att lyssna lite i förväg. Jag laddar till 90% för eget bruk, utan ambitionen att sprida det vidare.
Jag tycker hetsjakten på nya skivor är helt absurd (t.ex när det kommer mp3-"releaser") och ogillar när nedladdning sätts i system. Jag tycker det är tråkigt att det växer upp nya generationer som inte har något som helst förhållande till album - det är bara filer i deras dator. Förr i världen var det en viss poäng i att gå till skivaffären dagen då en skiva släpptes. Kanske hade man hört en låt på radio innan. Det var spännande och viktigt, i alla fall när vi 70-talister var kids. Nu är det jakten på att ha allt FÖRST som är viktigt, och det är trist.
Samtidigt förstår jag att folk inte har råd med all musik de vill ha, och det är ju skivbolagens fel eftersom de trissat upp priserna. Tänk om de hade spenderat alla pengar de lagt ut på värdelösa kopieringsskydd (som inte funkar) på att sänka priset på skivorna (spendera för att sänka, går det?) i stället?
Band tjänar minst pengar på sina skivor. Det är skivbolagen som får pengarna, men det är också skivbolagen som lägger ut pengar på inspelning, distribution och marknadsföring. Band får pengar när musik spelas i radio eller på tv, eller live.
I helgen gjorde Ralf i Mustasch en marknadsföringsundersökning om vilka som köpt eller laddat hem deras senaste skiva. Flest människor skrek att det laddat hem den, och det struntade Ralf i. Huvudsaken var att de kom på spelningarna.
Så kan man tycka, men det är ju tyvärr inte så enkelt. Banden - oavsett om de får pengar för skivor eller inte - är beroende av att skivor säljs för annars kan de inte göra fler skivor. Små, oberoende skivbolag är de som lider värst av nedladdningen, samtidigt som de oftast är de som uppmanar till nedladdning. Det är en paradox.
Att spridingen av mp3:or hjälper ett band att nå ut är självklart, och för små band är detta oumbärligt, men samtidigt är det så att alla vill ha betalt för det de gör. Ingen vill gå back. Att skapa musik är inte gratis, och för att band ska fortsätta skapa musik måste de få någon typ av ersättning.
I ett perfekt samhälle skulle nedladdare frivilligt betala något till de band de vill "stödja", kanske skicka en 20:a för att man laddat hem lite låtar. Det låter kanske lite, men det är en större ersättning än vad de få för ett sålt ex av en CD.
Hur ska man sammanfatta detta? Jag vet inte. Om du vill stödja ett band ska du följa ditt samvete. / Anders

Hello outta there! I'm the (dirty) transcriber for the french Nasum fan site you'd give your authorization for, and while transcribing your biography, I've faced a problem. I don't know what is a nightliner

quote :
Spring 2002: After a pretty long break from everything Nasum flew to England and shared a nightliner with The Dillinger Escape Plan and Rabies Caste

So could you please expect in simple words waht is that thing, because i am in a will to give the best information page about Nasum for french fans (and they are numberous) i know it's really boring but i did'nt find what it could be, and maybe it is a specifical term, so that is my question. Sorry for boring request, and tanks for the time you'd take to read my words.
A:
A nightliner is a big tour bus with beds in it. The beds are called bunks and are very small and not particulary comfortable, but it's the best way to travel when you're on a tour where you have to drive very far to get to the next show.
There isn't a Swedish word for nightliner, so most people say nightliner in Sweden too. / Anders

A:
Obviously you mean Sept-Oct 2004 for the Rotten Sound album... Well, after that we went on tour and I don't believe he worked with something else after that until he went to Thailand, so Rotten Sound is definitively his last big recording, and a good one indeed. / Anders

Hoppas att det för övrigt är bra med er.

Tack så mycket Mvh / Fredrik
A:
Ja, för fan, vi kickade den jävla idioten! ...eller inte! :) Faktum är att Jesper skrev en uttömmande förklaring till varför han hoppade av och jag tänkte först posta den här som svar, men det är en otroligt lång text. Kontentar var dock att det började hända saker för Burst och det blev för komplicerat att hålla ångan uppe i två band, speciellt som det fanns geografiska problem att överkomma också. Så Jesper valde det band som kändes bäst för honom, och ingen kan anklaga honom för att ha gjort fel val. Dessutom fick Burst verkligen bollen i rullning i och med Relapsedebuten "Pray on Life" och nu ser vi alla fram emot nya "Origo". Heja Burst och Jesper! / Anders

Q:
Hi Anders,

You've spoken of mastering/EQing some Nasum live minidisc material from time to time...
I was wondering if you could tell me what you listen to the music on for doing this? Headphones? Studio monitors? And which type?
What is you prefered mastering software?

I'm pretty interested in sound engineering, so that's why I'd like to know what sort of sytem you use. I'm thinking of investing in some monitor speakers some time soon.

Thanks, Daniel.
A:
I am just a novice in the world of sound, and so far I have only mastered one thing and that's the "Grind Finale" 2xCD... I worked in Cubase, tweaking some EQ knobs and using some plugins. Nothing advanced but it improved the sound. I borrowed a pair of good headphones from Dan Swanö, but I had to listen to what I produced in different environments (like homestereo, discman, carstereo) to see that it sounded alright. The big challange with "Grind Finale" was to get an even sound through out the album, not only adjusting the volume but adding treble there and bass there. It was quite a task but I am satisfied with the result. / Anders

In the set-list of Grind-Finale, we can find several yet unreleased songs (especially on the second disc...).

Can you explain a lot about where does those songs come from ? I suppose that most of them are outtakes from each of your albums...
A:
Most of them are. However, "Grind Finale" has lenghty liner notes by myself that gives you very detailed information about the 15 studio records Nasum did including the unreleased songs, so I advice you to pick up the album once it's released. I don't feel like sharing information that is featured on the album as I've worked hard to compile content outside the songs that maked the record worth buying (and not downloading). / Anders

A:
Not entirely true. We took the name from the movie "Flesh For Frankenstein" (1973), which is an American/French/Italien collaboration. The doctor says "What we really need now is the perfect nasum", and by viewing the scene (or hearing it, as you can on our first recording) you KNOW what the word means. / Anders

Q:
Hi Anders,

What are some of the sales figures for Nasum's albums? Which countries were you most popular in in terms of sales? Were you ever able to, or at least on the verge of being able to make a decent living off of your music? Did Relapse do a good job when it came to promotion of your albums in the USA? Anything else you can tell us about the cover art for Grind Finale?
A:
1 + 2) I have never got a complete breakdown of the sales and statistics over which countires that likes us the best. I have statements from certain periods and I haven't actually summed up everything, buy roughly 10-15000 copies per album in total, except for "Shift" that probably hasn't reached 10 000 yet.
3) Not at all.
4) I believe so.
5) The idea of "Grind Finale" in general is to collect everything Nasum did between 1993 and 2004, and that goes for the cover as well. The cover is inspired by past Nasum art. Think an early Napalm Death cover in 2005... You'll see it soon! / Anders

Hello Anders,
This is not so much a question as it is a suggestion.
Perhaps a small section could be made on your site with a list of known recorded NASUM cover songs by other bands? And maybe even a link to their webpage? i.e. [Bandname/Cover recorded/Link]

I know this site is pretty much strictly about NASUM (which is great!), but maybe this feature might introduce people to some new bands that were influenced by NASUM in the same kind of way some people may have been introduced to NASUM via their inclusion on the Carcass Tribute CD. (Although most people would have heard of you before that came out, I would hope!!)

I know of at least one:-
"Inhale/Exhale", recorded by EBOLIE on S/T CD
www.ebolie.cjb.net

Thanks, and keep up the brilliant work! Finest and most interesting band page on the net!

It's a good idea, but at the moment I am aware of around five Nasum songs recorded by other bands so the list really isn't that impressive. But in time maybe. I call all fans to report all Nasumcovers they can find (preferebly with a mp3 of the song...) and send the info to me. / Anders

Hej Anders,

Du som sett napalm death rätt många gånger: Låter deras trummis lika stel och trist live som på skiva?

Tack för inspirerande trumspel på alla Nasum-plattor!
A:
Jag tycker Danny får oförskämt mycket skit för sin, i mitt tycke coola stil. Danny är en mycket säker och tajt metal/grind-trummis. Han är ingen Tommy Lee direkt, men han gör det han ska och han gör det i det närmsta prickfritt. Jag har studerat honom relativt noggrant och noterat att hans teknik är helt perfekt. Handlederna jobbar febrilt, inte armarna som tröttar ut många trummisar. Danny kan få till en helt perfekt och hård d-takt som många borde avundas. Han ser inte ett behov av att hävda sig med häftiga fill in eller alternativa komp, han bara manglar stenhård det han ska mangla, och det tycker jag är jävligt coolt. Det passar Napalm Deaths ganska genomgångende kompromisslösa och supertajta still. Ta er till Augustibuller och titta på en trummis som är just den där stommet ett band ska luta sig emot. / Anders

Greetings.
Great Page! I couldn't wait for it to relaunch and checked the side while there was the report of the tsunami tragedy almost everyday. the downloads are great.

there are two questions...
1) what's your private favourite song from nasum? not vital information, but fun to know.
2) why are you called nasum? i looked it up in a latin dictionary and it said it was "nose"...

sorry if the questions have already been posted, but on the one hand i don't speak swedish, and on the other hand i am too lazy to read all 130 questions. oh, sorry for my bad english.
A:
1) It's impossible for me to pick one favorite. If you read the track by track commentaries for the albums you'll notice that I noted some as personal favorites.
2) The word was a joke between Rickard and I during the time we started the band, and we couldn't help ourselves and used it as our name (without knowing that the band would grow pretty big in 5-10 years...). The original meaning lost it's - well, meaning - quite fast and "nasum" for me always meant "A grindcore band from Sweden".

Q:
How, exactly, do you pronounce "Mieszko Talarczyk", and could you write up a personnel bio for him. What was his families heritage? What did he do growing up? How did you two meet? What were his interests outside of music?

I, like you, and many people around the world, have been through some difficult times recently. The only thing that never seems to let me down is music. Thank you for keeping NASUM.com there for me.
A:
It's pretty easy to pronounce but hard to write in a way that makes sense. It's a Polish name you know, but I think we got a hang of how to say it. Something like this: "Me-yeah-sch-go Tah-lahr-sch-ick" (100% "Hipp hipp"-varning på detta, eller vad säger ni svenskar?).
I have ended the first name with "go" eventhough the name in reality ends with "ko", but I feel it has got more of a g-sound than an English k. The same with "ick" in the last name. Actually, it should be a sound between an i and a y. At least in Swedish.
Record your pronounciation attempts and I will say if you've got it or not.
I don't know if I'm the right person to write a biography for Mieszko. I have written something about how we met in my eulogy and in the liner notes to "Grind Finale". Let's keep it at that right now, OK? / Anders

Nu finns det i och försig ett par till sedan jag gjort en grej som ni snart får se, men som sagt - det finns inget typsnitt. Antingen tar du upp Nasum-loggan i PhotoShop och klipper till egna bokstäver eller så ritar du för hand. Vill du ha hjälp med ett specifikt ord kan jag förstås rycka in.
Inspirationen till stilen på bokstäverna kommer - tro det eller ej - från Disharmonic Orchestras logga! / Anders

Q:
Tjena Anders.
Har en liten fråga....Hur fasen fick ni så grymt gitarrljud live?
Jag kör själv nedstämt i B, men hittar verkligen ingen stärkare som pallar det.
Och som jag förstått det, så körde ju ni ännu lägre.
Sen hoppas jag att många av t-shirtarna som fanns här på sidan trycks upp i nya upplagor....jag vill nämligen ha 5-6 st som inte finns och få tag på nånstans som det verkar. Ha det bra!
A:
Bra gitarrmickar, bra pedaler och bra stärkare = bra ljud. Det finns inga genvägar. Jag antar att det är den senaste livesnutten du utgår ifrån? Om det är så så minns jag att det var Mesa Boogie Dual/Triple Rectifier-stärkare. Sen så råkade vår ljudkille Bo Lund vara riktigt duktig på att ratta ljud och speciellt gitarrljud. Det var han som rattade oss på Hultsfred sista gången och då var ju ljudet jävligt bra.
På skiva stämde vi i B och droppade till A men live stämde vi upp en halvton och droppade, detta för att få ett tydligare ljud. / Anders

Jag vet inte om du vart informerad men vi var i kontakt med eran bokningskille i december för att boka in ett nytt Nasum/Splitter-gig i Huddinge i början av året. Det slog som en käftsmäll när Mieszko bekräftades saknad. Synd att vi inte får spela ihop något mer!
A:
Jo, vi fick erbjudandet men vi hann inte ta itu med det innan det gick som det gick. Jag hörde på omvägar att ni gjorde någon grej vid spelningen (eller så har jag drömt det) i Mieszkos ära. Bra gjort. Lycka till med Splitter - nu ligger det på ert ansvar att driva svensk grindcore vidare! / Anders

A:
Mieszko is buried at the Almby kyrka (Church of Almby) in Örebro. The exact "address" of the grave is Syrénen 130. Mieszko's grave is still without a proper headstone since they are waiting for the soil to settle so the stone won't fall. / Anders

Nasum are one of the main reasons we got together and made some of our own grind. The DIY ethic is important. I will continue to spread the word of the bands great work in Australia.

We wrote a song called 31/12/04 when the death toll reached over 50 000. Then we found out about Mieszko. We are currently recording this and other songs in our home studio.

Q:
Hello Anders,

First of all, the new Nasum.com design is very Great !!!
Here's my question : On the "Collapsed" compilation released by Ritual Records in Japan, there is a live version of "Shadows" among others.
I tried to buy this very nice item, but it's out of print.
I thought this song was (without doubt, he he...) on Grind Finale, but as I saw the song list, it wasn't the case...

Do you think it 's possible to find this song anywere ? Impossible to find it for download...
Perhaps can you add the song in the Grind Finale song list ??!? he he he...

Greetings
Candy
A:
"Grind Finale" only includes studio recordings, why it's impossible to add live songs. I think I have listened to that "Shadows" recording once. It's not that good and we didn't pick it for the comp. Maybe it's out there in some Japanese guys shared mp3's. / Anders
Question from tuoski (IP: 85.76.48.249) posted June 29, 2005 14:30:44:
Q:
Hello Nasum!

What does the voice in the beginning of "Stormshield" say exactly? I comprehend part of it, someone having dedicated his life to making money etc... I love the song btw.

Then in the beginning of "Just another hog" someone says something in Swedish. I thought it was something like "Are you blind, deaf or stupid!?" in English. What might that be?
A:
Sample in "Stormshield" (from the movie "Seven"): "This is a man who dedicated his life to making money by lying with every breath that he could muster".
Sample in "Just Another Hog" (from the movie "Tillsammans"): "Fattar du, ta inte det här personligt, men du är så jävla dum i huvudet, du är så jävla lurad!" roughly traslated to "Don't take this personal but you are so fucking stupid, you are so fucking fooled!". / Anders

Hey, you remember the preview to preview to hell-file you made available for download before Helvete was released? YOu told us that you recorded many songs of the album via Minidisc, and as the sound absolutely rocked my bottom here's my desperate plea once again to give us the songs for download.
Plz understand: We just LOOOOOVE raw sound and I fell in love with Miescasdsadko's guitar as soon as I heard it. So please reconsider. thx
A:
At the moment I feel that I want to keep all rehearsals and such for myself. It's my memories. But I might share something one day if it's good enough to be released publicly. Our rehearsal records were always meant for us, for development of the songs, so they are often quite unlike the final versions of the songs. / Anders

Undrar om du har kvar samma trummor som på Helvete inspelningen? I så fall undrar jag vad den "färgen" kallas, och om det är lackat, oljat trä eller om det är är s.k "wraps" runtom. Har själv ett DW set o funderar på att byta utseende på dom, jag gillar utseendet på ditt set.

p.s spelar du alltid barfota lr? hehe

Jo, trumsetet är kvar. Jag har ingen aning om vad det kan kallas. Det är som en slags svart bets på träet. Det är ingen heltäckande färg och heller inte något som klistrats på det. Svart bets är vad det är.

Q:
Hello Anders,
Firstly, I really like the new look of the NASUM web-site! Great design...

My question is, having seen photos of a DW double bassdrum pedal on your kit, I'd like to know how do you prefer to set your pedal up? Very tight springs? Beater angled close to skin, or far back? I don't expect a really detailed answer, but I have the same pedal, and as a fellow drummer, I'm just interested in how you might set it up as love your drumming on all the Nasum CDs!

Holding my breath for the mighty GRIND FINALE!
Good luck with your computer recording in the fututre... hope u keep making music - you're a great song writer and lyricist!

Please check out my band's web page, if you have time to. :)

Thanks Anders!
A:
Actually, I have never experienced much with the springs, weights, angles and such. I do prefer that the two beaters feels the same regarding the mentioned stuff but other than that I haven't done much but using the goddamn pedals! :)
Anyway - lately I had to lower the beaters slightly since they begun to lose while playing, but that's the only adjustment I've done for years. / Anders

Det var den här träsnittsliknande illustrationen på en hand som tar tag i ett hjärta (typ som man plockar äpplen) som finns på Carcass "Heartwork" som han ville göra. Det gick så långt att jag tog fram ett original till han när vi åkte till USA 1999 eftersom vi trodde att vi skulle hitta folk som kunde tatuera oss gratis.

please can you give me some tips on how to write songs as i find it very hard.
A:
All though I've written over 100 Nasum songs, I am not a master of the art of song writing. I just go along with what feels right. I guess that when you start to write you have to think about the music all of the time and try out new arrangements and ideas in your head before you decided on what will be the song.
On "Grind Finale" there's a song whose working title was "The bicycle song" which indicated that it was a song that I came up with biking and then picking out of my head. If I had written down all the "bicycle songs" I've had over the years I would easily have one album worth of material! / Anders

Q:
Synd Anders, att du missade Behemoth när du va på SRF, det var överlägset det bästa detta året...
Annars va Satanic Slaughter gött o få se innan dom la av och Defleshed med Modin som skinpiskare.... Hur kommer det sig att du missade dessa underbara band?

over 'n' out.

/Sven

PS. Kanske jag va en av dom me Nasum-tröjja du såg på SRF. Har en luvtröjja med logga! DS.
A:
Men jag såg Behemoth i Tyskland förra året på Morbid Festspeile eller vad det nu hette. Nasum-tröjorna jag såg var t-shirts förutom munkjackan som Swanö hade på sig... :)
Och för övrigt "missade" jag ingenting - jag såg det jag ville se. / Anders

Q:
dear anders
before i heard your music i wasn't really into this type of music until my friend gave me one of your albums (inhale/exhale.)

i would like to know what bands your into at the moment and what bands made you think i wanna start a band.

please become active again even if that means the there are no vocals as NO ONE can replace Mieszko.
your music has grabbed me by the balls
A:
I listen to a lot of music all of the time since one of the things I do to earn my living is reviewing music. Right now I'm all into the new Foo Fighters album.
I guess Kiss was the first band for me and ultimately the band that made me want to be a musician. / Anders

Q:
Tjena Anders!
Måste säga att jag avgudar trumljudet på inhale/exhale. Är det trumljudet helt akustiskt eller ligger det nån typ av trigg på i efterhand??

Keep on rokkin!!
A:
Jag minns inte. Möjligtvis är det trigg på bastrummorna, eventuellt blandat med det akustiska ljudet. Det här är en typisk fråga som Mieszko borde ha svarat på... / Anders
Question from Brian P. (IP: 64.167.29.126) posted June 14, 2005 21:50:41:
Q:
I'd have to say Shift is my favourite. There's a ferocity there, like "Wrath" and "Circle of Defeat", in both lyrics and music. It just seems, from that album, you guys are really pissed off, at least when you recorded the CD. Controlled anger, to the benefit of self and others. In this humble fans' opion, my fav is Shift, however, I'll hold off until I get my grimey hands on "Grind Finale".

Thanks, man.
A:
Well, to be honest it's a tie between "Helvete" and "Shift". I know that when I listened through "Shift" once it was finished I felt that it had elements from the early days of Nasum, so it is in fact capturing both the old and new. But "Helvete" was probably the album that made Nasum "click" if you know what I mean. / Anders
Question from Brian P. (IP: 64.167.29.126) posted June 14, 2005 21:19:46:
Q:
I have a question for you Anders: which album do you think best reflects the spirit or philosophy behind Nasum's work? (and I do apologize if this question's been already asked in Swedish)
A:
I would actually say that "Grind Finale" will be the ultimate Nasum album since it really sums up all the different stages in the Nasum development.
But I guess that's not the answer you'd like. I can't really pick the best one since they are all special to me. For example the first one was born out of love for grindcore and we didn't really have a clue what we were doing resulting in a collection of songs rather than an album. Some song should have been excluded for the sake of quality and length but it seems like "Inhale/Exhale" is everyone's favorite so what the hell...
I guess in the end I would pick "Helvete". That's the best one. / Anders

Q:
Hello Anders!

When I listen through your albums I hear the evolution of your sound (more hooks, melody, technical stuff and influences from other genres etc.) In what direction do you think Nasum would have gone with the next couple of albums if you still existed as a band?

ps. Please continue to write stuff like the article about Sweden rock festival and post it here, I enjoyed reading it!
A:
We did have a recording scheduled for January. The idea was to just go into the studio and see what happened, to try to do something different and not so "planned".
I don't know how things would have developed on future albums. I hope that things would have taken a little different direction once Jon and Urban started to write more songs for Nasum. / Anders

I feel a great void in me musically to know you guys won't be playing, and when I heard his body was identified, it was the closest I have ever come to crying about someone I never knew.

Who's in the Maktmissbrukare's cover?
A:
Hey, that was some great stuff! Sounds a little bit like Terrorizer. Great vocals, drumming and guitarwork! I like it.
Re: the guys on the "Maktmissbrukare" cover... I have no idea! If I find the original picture one day I might learn it from the caption. They should be considered "models" that just happened to fit the "Maktmissbrukare" theme. In hindsight we should probably done the old punk thing with a black tape over the eyes... / Anders

Q:
Hey Anders,

this might have been answered two posts below but since I don't speak Swedish, I just wanted to know what's gonna happen with Soundlab?

Thanks and keep your head up.
A:
Yes it was, but here it is in English: Soundlab is now owned by Millencolin who will use the studio as their headquarters, i.e. rehearsal space, storage, office, demostudio etc. At one point Matte told me about renting the studio to bands that has a technician that can handle ProTools but I don't know how much effort they will put into that right now. / Anders

Q:
Tjena Anders, tänkte bara höra hur er relation till Studio Soundlab kommer att bli nu framöver? Lämnar ni den för gott? eller finns det någon annan exempelvis Nasum-medlem som är en jävel på att ratta ljud?

Med tanke på att Studion i sig drog till sig en drös grymma band. Och självfallet blev platta efter platta ett jävla mästerverk tack vare mannen som en gång satt bakom spakarna.

Lycka till med framtida projekt och allt ni kan glädjas åt i framtiden.
A:
Soundlab Studios ägs numera av Millencolin som kommer att ha den som sina "headquarters" och jag vet att Matte löst pratade om möjligheterna att hyra ut den till band som har en egen tekniker som kan ProTools, men jag vet inte om de kommer att göra så eller inte.
Med andra ord kan det finnas en möjlighet att man hamnar där igen, men sannolikt inte. / Anders

Hi Anders,

I was just wondering if there's any chance in the future of printing English translations of the Q&A's that are printed in Swedish. I noticed one of them mentions Genocide Superstars, and that's one thing I've been wondering about, whether or not GSS will continue.
A:
No, I don't think that will happen. It'll be too much double work. But regarding Genocide SuperStars... Well, everytime I meet the remaining members and encourage them to go on, but I think they will just keep it low right now and see what happenens. Dan and Richard has lots of stuff going on with their band The Accidents so I guess they will devote most of their time to that band right now. / Anders

A:
Det är en återupplivning av Shanes gamla projekt Blood From The Soul som släppte en skiva på Earache 1993 eller 1994. Det är ganska experimentellt kan man väl sammanfatta det. Jag träffade Shane på Sweden Rock så vi tog tillfälligt i akt och diskuterade vidare. Jag vill ändå vara lite begränsad med snacket om detta projekt än så länge eftersom projekt allt oftare skrotas än genomförs, men det ser bra ut just nu. / Anders

Anyway, my question is:
Will it contain the Japan only tracks of the albums as well? In your post it says "non-album tracks", so probably not...?
A:
"Album" in "non-album" referers to the original releases so the Japanese bonus tracks are all on "Grinde Finale"! / Anders

Q:
Deepest condolences to Mieszko, his friends, and family. I have a question about some of Nasum's beliefs as a band and as individuals. I have noticed lyrics in the past that have a strong animal rights message, such as "Fucking Murder" and "Fur," just to name a few. What is Nasum's stance on animal rights? and your stance? and Mieszko's stance? Did the entire band agree on animal rights? Did all or any of you support a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle? Were any of you active in animal rights at one time or another? Just curious. Thanks and best of luck in the future.
A:
I believe that Mieszko was a vegetarian for the last 10-11 years of his life and at some point he was a vegan, probably at the same time he wrote "Fucking Murder!" and "Fur". We were never any hardcore activists for animal rights but it was one of many issues that we attacked in lyrics. Eventhough we had simular political ideas in our lyrics, Nasum was very much a group of individuals with different opinions and I can't really speak about the others opinions, but I assure you that no one - vegetarian or not - was against animal rights! / Anders

Funderade på att köpa nån ny tröja, då min är lite gammal nu.. Den jag har är en beige variant som ni sålde på den turnen, girlie. Kan inte se att ni har några girlie storlekar nu.. Jag är en tjej size small, kan jag köpa en x-small t-shirt då? Ni har inga tjejmodeller alls eller?

Q:
Tjena Anders & Nasum!
Såg i bild galleriet att nån hade tatuerat Nasum loggan på ryggen, o läste även i nåt tidigare inlägg att nån hade funderat på att tatuerat återvinningsmärket. Min fråga är då, hur känns det för er som band att folk förevigar Nasum o sånt som är relaterat till Nasum på sin kropp? Känns det typ hedrande eller hur känns det? Det märks ju ganska uppenbart på så sätt att ni verkligen har gjort nånting bra iaf.

Take care!
A:
Det är klart att det känns otroligt smickrande, precis som när folk utsmyckar sin bil/skinnjacka med Nasum-loggan eller för den delen har på sig våra tröjor. Jag har svårt att se något negativt i det hela.
Personligen kan jag dock inte riktigt förstå varför man väljer att tatuera in loggan på ryggen - det är liksom för stort för mig att förstå... / Anders

Q:
Yo Anders, received my mail order copy of "Inhale/Exhale" thru Relapse last night. Loved my first listen! After having listened to the later albums first, I can see how progessive the early years were. Truth maintained throughout the Nasum period is clearly represented when looking at all the works together. Nice.

Are you planning to release the vinyls thru Relapse? I've got "Industrial" on vinyl and find ordering Nasum on Relapse US quite convenient (you know, no international shipping).

I was thinking, after knowing Mieszko thru the writing, only a tsunami could take out such vibrance. His death, in such a way, has an element of honor to it. It took the powers of the physical world to extinguinsh that life.

Just a thought, and some props on "Inhale/Exhale".

Oh yeah, please don't post this note. These words are for you, man.
A:
It's pretty hard to answer your question without posting your question... Which I don't fully understand, which vinyls are you talking about? Of the albums the first two are sold out and the third ("Helvete") Relapse released and the fourth I don't think they have bought any copies of, which is kind of strange.

Q:
I sent you (Anders) an E-mail at least a month back about the idea of some sort of a tribute maybe feturing unrealed Nasum, Genocide SS, Krigshot stuff and maybe have bands suchs as the Peep Show, DS-13, Entomed and Project Hopless contributing stuff as well?Many other fans of Mieszko would be very intrested in just such a comp;what better way too pay tribute to the guy? Call it "FRiends of Tragedy" Since you where in Krigshot with him, that this would be something too think about?
If others out their read this, please share you ideas about this idea, for a tribute comp. Would like to hear other suggestions as well?
A:
I think it's a pretty bad idea, actually. However I am not interested in putting together some kind of tribute (I mean to be the person organizing the whole thing), it's too much work and too much feelings involved that makes the whole thing so unattractive.
"What better way too pay tribute to the guy?" Well, I would say that you should listen to and buy the stuff he wrote and recorded for Nasum and other bands (as a producer). That's Mieszko's legacy. / Anders

Hej Anders, vilket jobb du har lagt ner på sidan, minnen och att hedra Mieszko... är säker på att han uppskattar det där han är på andra sidan. Jag mailade en hel del med honom för några år sedan och har en del fina bilder på honom och er två som han skickat till mig. Undrade ifall du kanske vill ha dom? Eller förmodligen så har du redan dom, kan tro att de är tagna till ett skivomslag och sedan är det nån konsertbild på Mieszko. Hur som helst önskar dig/er allt gott. Tack fär att du orkat göra denna sajt.

Miezko... Tänker på dig. Du _är_ en hjälte.

Q:
Tack så mycket för tipset om "Sayyadina" dom var bra som fan.
Hoppas att allting rullar på och så. Skulle vilja höra ett tips på hur man grindar så jävla bra som du gör, har alltid spelat mycket grind på trummor, men inte liksom åstadkommit nånting riktigt sjysst. Men när du gör det så ser det så goddamn lätt ut.

Har du bara tränat dig till det eller har du nåt bra tips :D

Tack på förhand
A:
Jag har egentligen inget bra tips förutom det lite torra "övning ger färdighet". Det låter trist men så är det. När jag tog över trumstolen i Nasum 1996 fick jag slita som fan för att det skulle bli bra. Det lät svagt och sviktande, men det var bara att ge sig fan på att det skulle gå så gick det. Sen att min spelstil blev som den blev ä väl lika delar koncentration och image... / Anders

Q:
Hello Nasummembers, hello Anders,

I'm a little bit sad about the end of Nasum, but I can understand your decision. Thank you for your explanation, Anders.
I think the music you've created sends the power, the spirit and the energy, all this, what, so I think, music stands for.
I hope I'll read your names in booklets again.

I wish the girlfriend of Mieszko the best recovery, and all friends and family the strength to carry on.

Sincerely
Eric

PS: Just one question: One of my favourite song on "Shift" is "Hets". Unfortunately I can't speak Swedish, but I'm curious what's meant by this song.
So, if you have any time, would you translate this into English?
Please excuse my English.
A:
I will try to translate all the lyrics that is in Swedish sometime in the future. I know other timed when I've tried this I've tried to hard to make them rhytmically right, and that doesn't really work. I'll just try to translate the essence of them next time.
"Hets" is about a quite huge problem in society today, how people are consumed by stress and demands and work until they get exhaused or burned out. It's actually one of my better lyrics - it discusses a big problem and it got a good flow in it.
I guess one way to translate the title is "Frenzy". Actually I named the song since it felt kind of stressy, and then I developed the lyrics keeping the working title.

Q:
Hej Anders. Läste intervjun med Napalm Death i senaste Close Up Magazine och där nämner ju Shane Embury att ni har pratat om att dra igång ett projekt. Låter iaf som att det skulle kunna bli fruktansvärt bra, men kommer det att bli något av det?
A:
Jag har inte vela prata om det här tidigare för det är alltid en enorm risk att det inte blir något av projekt, men nu ser det i alla fall ut som det är på gång.
Sanningen är att idén väcktes redan för över två år sedan då jag skjutsade Shane till flygplatsen efter att han varit med på "Helvete"-inspelningen. Jag frågade om han någonsin hade tänkt göra något med av projektet Blood From The Soul som han gjorde en skiva med på 90-talet. Och ju mer vi snackade ju mer lutade åt att vi skulle göra något tillsammans.
Lite senare kom en skiva med demos Shane hade gjort och sedan dess har det hängt lite i luften. Vi har haft problem att hitta rätt sångare tills jag föreslog Peter Dolving och han är nu med på banan och har tydligen börjat göra sångarrangemang och texter till Shanes demos.
Förhoppningsvis spelar vi in i höst, men som sagt man vet aldrig vad som händer med projekt. Shanes demos är dock mycket bra så det ska bli kul att spela dem på riktigt. / Anders

I just wanted to tell you Anders how much Nasum means to me. Thank you for bringing the page up again, and for the coming "Grind Finale". I'm really looking forward to that release.

It's hard to explain, but there's a certain feeling in my heart when I listen to your music. That flame stays lit as long as I endure. I hope it means something to you, that you have touched people.

Sometimes it feels like I've shed my share of blood, sweat and tears, but I think there's still much to endure for. I wish you strength to carry on.

I remain yours faithfully,

Q:
Hello Anders,
Just wanted to let you know - I was at the St. Louis, MO show when you came and played the Creepy Crawl on the Contamination 3.0 tour back in 99'. I had never heard of Nasum before and I was an instant convert that night. Mieszko made mention it was your first run through the states. I can't thank you enough for that show...I'll never forget it. So much energy! You guys are and will forever be killer in my book. Cheers! R.I.P Mieszko.
A:
Thanks for the praise. At first I didn't remember the Creepy Crawl but I did. I remember that we met a guy with a homemade Nasum t-shirt after the show, and I also remember that the club was in a kind of scary part of the town (at least in the eyes of a guy from a small town in Sweden) and there were some drunks beating eachother with bottles on a parking lot next to the club... Nice...
The first (and unfortunately only) US tour was something special for us as well, so thanks for showing up! / Anders

Question from Nathan Dufour (from Canada, eh!) (IP: 142.165.146.86) posted May 28, 2005 05:19:59:
Q:
Hello and hails to all. I am saddened to hear that Nasum is no more, but I fully respect the decision made. My question is this more like two, sorry about that. I hope the forum isnt limited to one question. On "Helvete" there is a song called Slaves to the Grind and I was wondering what the reasoning behind writing a song about grind was? I mean, power metal bands write about metal all the time and how great it is, but I have never heard a Grind band write about the excellence of Grind. I was just wondering if that song is meant as kinda making fun of power metal? (though the lyrics are very sincere). Second, another song/lyric question. "Twinkle Twinkle Little Scar", from Shift, is clearly about domestic violence. Was that song inspired by something that happened in Anders personal life, or was it more of a societal comment on abuse and the damage it causes? Thanks for your time, for bringing the site back, making this forum, and most of all, thank you for the music! Grind your mind.
A:
Re: "Slaves to the Grind": The song isn't about grind in general but rather about Nasum and the situation we were in when we were writing the "Helvete" album. We felt some pressure to something better than what we preiviously had.
The lyrics can also be applied on anyone that has to struggle to improve. I remember Mieszko once said that it could even be about Napalm Death, so it's just a matter of how you interper it.

Re: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Scar": I have no personal experience of domestic violence - thank you very much - and the lyrics came together by accident more or less.
I remember that it started with the first lines of chorus (then: "Count the scars in MY eyes") and were supposed to be about being hurt in a more psychic way, but one thing led to another and the subject of domestic violence came up, something that I previously only had touched upon in the lyrics to "Dead Mirror" (look for it here).
It's just a subject that feel is very disturbing and terrible. / Anders

Hi!

I just wonder if there are any grindcore band in your style or something, I dont like Goregrind and such bands as Mortician, Fuck IM DEAD, Anal Cunt , Anal Blast etc.

So I wonder if there are a band in your grind-style(?), who has political lyrics, not about Old men raping children...

I´m searching for somthing more like you guys...
I love your music, your grindcore is the best, no one will ever beat you.

And all my respect to Miezsko and friends.
Terrible! R.I.P

Thank you // Andrzej
A:
Well, the first two bands that come to mind is two Swedish acts, namely Sayyadina (with Jon ex-Nasum) and Gadget. They are both playing grindcore that is quite simular to Nasum. I suggest that you head to their webpages and download whatever samples they have and I'm sure you'll love it! sayyadina.com and gadgetgrindcore.com.

Good luck discovering new grind! / Anders

This isn't a question as much as it is a statement. I don't cry a lot, but when I heard about Mieszko, I cried. I was one who was blessed with spending a night with him and getting to know him and what kind of person he was. He was a kind spirit and would do anything for fans.

My love and best wishes go out to his girlfriend, his parents and of course the rest of the band. While I haven't known Mieszko nearly as long as you guys, I feel in some way connected to him.

I will never forget and I will miss him.

First for all, I hope all of you are fine. No, I don't know anyone of you, the thing is I know how much it hurts and how long it hurts. I really think that it was o good step forward, to whatever, to have the site online again.
I really engulf all the texts here since I know Nasum and I still do so, I also love what anyone of you wrote, the thing is I never see Nasum live just listening to the records and I guess is some sort of mental savaging when I start reading the sad things on this site, anything. . .
Start and stop crying, without knowing you in real life, but I think it's something like remembering again e.g. funerals I visited all of them were so damn hard.
Guess I'm talking too much sometimes, but I hope you know what I mean.

Just read the narrative, Anders. Honestly, I'm not surprised, and I understand completely. I've read the lyrics, man, some of them written by you. I believe, as an artist, your talents will take on new forms and mediums. Fire cannot be contained as long as oxygen feeds it. May that fire bring forth new life.

My question: Have you also concidered to release a DVD? It would be so great to see the spirit from Nasum and Mieszko again at home.
A:
Thanks for the respect!

Well, I'm afraid that there isn't enough material (at least in a decent quality) to collect on a DVD that will make it worth the money. I considered making a DVD to include in the "Grind Finale" set, but it was enough work to compile the music for the set.

I'm not ruling out a possible video document of some kind, but I rather think it's going to be something that the fans can download and burn themeselves than a pro printed DVD. We'll see. We have time to think about it. / Anders
