Question from Finland (IP: 62.241.212.214) posted June 27, 2008 15:57:15:
Q:
Have considered of making new Nasum merch ? Or maybe re-pressing a limited amount of the old merch stuff and sell it ?

Thanks.
A:
Not at the moment. Last repress was about exactly one year ago and there are still shirts left. / Anders
Question from Josh (IP: 134.91.244.20) posted June 16, 2008 21:21:59:
Q:
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

Q:
Evening, Anders.

Any chance the new Coldworker merch will appear on Relapse.com?
It seems easier for me to order it from there.. and shorter waiting time..
But if not, I'll just end up making an order very soon for the zip up hood. =)
A:
No, we sell our merch, and they sell theirs. / Anders

Q:
What pickups did Mieszko use in his guitars for live and recording?

Q:
Good evening, Anders.
Hahaha, laughed pretty hard at your answer to the comment below.
But on to the question..

Is there a band that still plays today that YOU think carries on the sound of Nasum? I can't really find any bands that will ever be like the exact sound, but yeah.. do you feel there is any other musicians setting Nasum standards?
A:
What's the fun in a band with the EXACT sound? But Sayyadina and Gadget are inte same style as Nasum. Check 'em out! / Anders

Question from Attila Németh (IP: 213.163.59.202) posted May 9, 2008 16:52:43:
Q:
Hi Anders!
Sorry about these questions, but I really need your help! Do you know something about the Inhale/Exhale LP +"7 pressing? It was only one press by Distortion or was there a second press?
If I know right than it was released on yellow "12 and "7 vinyls. Did you hear about another pressing on black vinyls?
Just because I have found one on eBay on black. So I just want to know if it's fake.
Thanxxxx for your help!
A:
Yeah, the second pressing was on black, so it's real. That's one of the few Nasum releases I don't own myself... :( / Anders
Question from Tom W. (IP: 83.249.26.112) posted May 8, 2008 15:40:49:
Q:
Jo jag har märkt att du är ganska kortfattad i dina kommentarer så jag tänker inte heller skriva någon jävla bok utan jag tänker ställa en fråga.

Har du hört Totalt Jävla Mörker? Om ja, vad tycker du om dom?

MVH Tom W.
A:
Jodå, jag har hört och sett Totalt Jävla Mörker ett antal gånger. De har sina stunder. / Anders
Question from lorenzo (IP: 80.137.105.224) posted May 4, 2008 20:07:21:
Q:
hey Anders,
I dont know if this has been asked before but is there a meaning for the gasmasks in the musicvideo and picutres e.c.t...?
A:
No, it's just something that started with the "Inhale/Exhale" cover which sort of had a "pollution" theme. / Anders
Question from Jimmy (IP: 82.208.211.33) posted May 3, 2008 02:44:32:
Q:
Hello, Anders!

Are you a fan of prog-rock (e.g. Pink Floyd) and
have you ever listened to Tom Waits?
A:
Not a massive fan of either Pink Floyd or Tom Waits, but of course I have listened to both. / Anders
Question from Jordan J. (IP: 142.22.16.55) posted April 28, 2008 18:19:47:
Q:
Good morning, Anders.

Did you ever try to do vocals live out of all the years of Nasum?
Something like Flo from Cryptopsy does, having the mic set up with the drum set..
Or was it too complicated..?
A:
Never. / Anders
Question from Emil (IP: 90.224.8.68) posted April 27, 2008 13:33:26:
Q:
Hey

I´m just intrested in what rigg Jon is using for the bass? It´s a realy sweet sound...!
A:
What ever he had, I don't think it was used on the album. / Anders
Question from Grind Terror (IP: 121.216.117.40) posted April 25, 2008 06:52:12:
Q:
Funny question - why did Mieszko always where a hat live and in band photos? Looks like he has a shaved head ??
A:
You have answered your own "funny" question. / Anders
Question from Josh (IP: 62.226.76.226) posted April 19, 2008 19:16:33:
Q:
Cool. It's very nice to hear him talking, too.
Do you remember why he didn't speak in Mülheim?
Was he just croaky or did he want to preserve his voice? I'm just interested because I remember me being wondering why he didn't speak. i just thought he is a quiet guy with the loudest voice when it comes into screaming.;)
A:
I have no memory of that incident. My best guess is that Jon was more drunk and decided to talk... :) / Anders
Question from Josh (IP: 62.226.74.76) posted April 18, 2008 19:19:41:
Q:
Hey,

I finally bought Doombringer. I love the roughness. You have done another great job!
Now heres my question: I've seen you guys live in Mülheim in 2004. I remember Mieszko being very quiet while not singing and that Jon did most (if not all) of the talking on stage. does mieszko speak on doombringer? if yes where?
thanks!
Josh
A:
Mieszko does all the talking on "Doombringer". / Anders
Question from Tim (IP: 83.255.71.41) posted April 16, 2008 17:22:20:
Q:
Jag kom nyss på en sak, skulle de kunna va möjligt att ni säljer Nasum Merchen som finns på Relaps så att fans(så som mej själv) kan slippa onöddiga frakt kostnader, den jobbiga perioden av att vänta evigheter på den å att man kanske har råd å köpa saker i störe omgångar?

Tack för mej!

(P.S dog ganska mycke innom bords när de sista exet av Grind Finale tog slut i skiv butiken för nån dag sen :S)
A:
Nej. De säljer sin merch och jag säljer vår. Nu när dollarn är så låg handlar det inte om så stora summor och så himla lång tid tar det inte för en beställning att komma från USA. / Anders
Question from Johan (IP: 194.17.178.40) posted April 10, 2008 10:44:27:
Q:
Hej!
Varför är inte "swedish assault" med under discography?? Är det ingen officiell utgåva? En annan fråga: Vet du hur många ex "blind world" gavs ut i? Mvh Johan
A:
Hm, vi var väl egentligen inte med på "Swedish Assault" utan bara på en bonusskiva, men den kanske borde vara med i alla fall...? Jag tror att "Blind world" trycktes i 600 ex. Har för mig det var så, hur som helst den singel det finns minst ex av. / Anders
Question from Jon (IP: 71.172.98.20) posted April 8, 2008 03:09:51:
Q:
Hey, I was just wondering where the Coldworker artwork came from or was inspired from. The outline of the main character seems really familliar, like a horror movie or something along those lines.
A:
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. I've seen the original photo. / Anders
Question from Jordan J. (IP: 142.22.16.59) posted March 31, 2008 18:44:40:
Q:
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
Question from Omen (IP: 80.201.183.80) posted March 30, 2008 20:46:14:
Q:
Hi, man.

I was just wandering, did you stop doing vocals on albums after Human 2.0 or did you do them on Shift and Helvete as well?

PS: tell Jon that next time he visits Belgium, he should bring some Sayyadina merch to a dude with a bandanna.

Cheers.
A:
I've answered this a thousand times before... 1) I couldn't sing the songs live, 2) I couldn't sing at all without losing my voice for a week, so no thanks! / Anders
Question from Josh (IP: 62.226.102.26) posted March 29, 2008 16:04:31:
Q:
Sorry, yeah I was actually looking for his name, found it but forgot to change it then.:(

Anders, is this a bootleg one or did you print the napalm design on other shirts than on green and white ones?
thank you!
A:
That shirt has been printed on white and on grey shirts, nothing else. / Anders
Question from Josh (IP: 62.226.76.250) posted March 26, 2008 15:10:06:
Q:
I have seen your friend Urban(?) with Victims in Essen on Saturday. They were great! He was wearing his Nasum Hoodie with the white pocket print.
Unfortunatly there were not many people around.
But they seemed to have fun. After the show they got a 5 or 6 litre glass of beer and I saw Urban posing with it.
No question, I know. But I want the people to share this funny good evening!
Best,
Josh
A:
That was most likely Jon, as he plays in Victims. / Anders
Question from Jordan J. (IP: 74.210.17.9) posted March 26, 2008 02:19:57:
Q:
Evening, Anders.

Did you get some new drum cymbals?
I thought I noticed some different ones in one of your new Coldworker rehearsal videos I stumbled upon on Youtube..
If so, which ones and how are they treating you? =)
A:
The videos have the same set up as presented earlier. I have, however, updated them slightly. / Anders
Question from Nasum - Master of Grind (IP: 85.131.116.14) posted March 24, 2008 14:13:00:
Q:
Why wouldn't there be t-shirt's where would be Grind Finale CD- logo, you know what I mean? That would be cool..
A:
Do you mean the cover artwork? I've seen bootlegs of it. / Anders
